Bankroller and founder of United Front Party (UFP), Dr. Agyenim Boateng, has threatened to commit should the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) win the 2020 polls as predicted by the Economic Intelligence Unit (EIU), MyNewsGh.com reports.
“I will sit on my balls [testicles] and dies if any political party a part from UFP with as leader does not win the upcoming polls”, he vowed during an MyNewsGh.com monitored on a local radio station in Kumasi.
The EIU in its country report on Ghana released on May 13, 2019, said it will be difficult for the opposition NDC under former President John Dramani Mahama, to portray itself as the better custodian of Ghana’s economy, especially as the country’s growth outlook looks fairly strong.
Speaking to the development, Dr. Nana Agyenim Boateng, downplayed the EIU report on the country’s economy while accusing the Finance Minister, Ken Ofori Atta of doing little to ameliorate the lives of the suffering Ghanaians.
According to him, the renowned banker has failed woefully in managing the economy though he is said to be partially doing well when it comes to financing and all these will contribute to NPP’s defeat.
“The Finance Minister has failed in managing the economy but when it comes to financing, I think he is not doing badly at all”, the businessman cum politician observed.
According to Dr. Agyenim Boateng, taxing of so-called luxury vehicles by the Akufo-Addo led government is a clear manifestation that incompetent people are at the helms of affairs in the country currently and the earlier the competent persons are put in charge of affairs the better for the country.
“All that Ken Ofori-Atta knows is taxing …taxing, taxing. He always wants to take monies from us the businessmen without any good policy to sustain what we are doing”, Dr. Agyenim Boateng stated.
He, therefore, hinted another massive demonstration will soon hit the Akufo-Addo led government New Patriotic Party (NPP) government to protest against the luxury tax law now in operation.
