He said unlike the “reckless borrowing” of the current Government, which “has compromised the oil discovery,” a future NPP administration will give Ghanaians an economy which can rely on regular power supply.

“I will tell you what it will not be; it is not a dumsor economy, it is not a dead goat economy, it is not a friends and family economy, it is an economy that will create jobs,” he told Journalists as the Party’s alternative to the status quo.

The NPP is expected to present its thoughts on the 2016 budget at a press conference next week. Dr Bawumia hinted at a better alternative in his interview with the press.

According to him, nothing in the budget presented by Finance Minister Seth Terkper addresses the fundamental problem of the economy. He said the borrowing by the Government will eventually saddle the State with about GHC99 billion by the end of the year. Ghana’s total debt stock, according to Mr Terkper, currently stands at GHC92.2 billion.
