Dr Otabil insisted the country needed a new “leadership response” in the country, adding Ghana’s ship, like the Titanic, was sinking.

After that comment, government’s communicators have fired a barrage of rebuttals and condemnation of Dr Otabil’s prognosis, insisting the economy is not in dire straits as he is seeking to suggest.

First it was Communications Minister, Edward Omane-Boamah, who let out his disapproval of the preacher’s analysis of the country’s leadership.

Then National Democratic Congress (NDC) hard-liner, Sam George, alleged Dr Otabil’s stance towards government was because he had been stripped of diplomatic privileges – a claim Dr Otabil’s spokesperson, Albert Ocran has vehemently debunked .

This is not the first time the renowned preacher has earned the displeasure of the NDC. In 2012 he clashed with the NDC after what party faithfuls said were distasteful comments on issues of national development, particularly education.

Speaking on the latest controversy on Newsfile Saturday, Mr Baako said government’s reactions to Dr Otabil’s message piles onto a steady inconsistency from government.

He first cited government’s unflinching stance towards a $3 billion China Development Bank (CDB) loan, despite numerous advice from civil society and analysts, until “after long dragging of feet [government] had to revise that loan”.

Even though government recently slashed the loan it was seeking from the Chinese by half, it had always rejected advice from civil society, notably IMANI Ghana, who maintained that the country will not be able to satisfy the strict credit requirements of the China Development Bank – the lender.

Also, the Bank of Ghana recently scrapped all foreign exchange measures it introduced to shore up the falling Ghana cedi, after government persistently rejected the advice of economists and experts on the measures.

“All those things put together show a certain level of inconsistency”, Mr Baako said, adding it worked against government’s efforts to build policy credibility and restoration of confidence in Ghana’s economy, the reason for which government has had to eat a humble pie and turn to the International Monetary Fund for a bailout.

“I would rather advise the leaders of this country to take on board what reverened Otabil is saying”, he said. Story by Ghana | Myjoyonline.com | George Nyavor | [email protected]
