President John Dramani Mahama has said that this may be the last time Ghana is seeking assistance from the International Monetary Fund (IMF).
He was speaking to supporters of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) who had gathered at the Kotoka International Airport to welcome him from the United States of America where he attended the 69th United Nation General Assembly meeting.
According to him, government would strengthen its fiscal policies in order to ensure that the financial indiscipline that occasioned the economic meltdown and created the conditions that compelled Ghana to turn to the the Briton Wood institution is not repeated.
Government is currently in talks with the IMF for technical and financial assistance.
It says the intervention of the IMF is to give policy credibility to the government’s home grown solutions as well as boost investor confidence.
President Mahama said the country has gone in and out of IMF prescriptions and expressed the hope that this will be the last time.
On the other hand he assured that government is also working tirelessly to ensure that the Ebola disease does not spread to Ghana.
