Dr Kofi Amoah

Business magnate and economist Dr Kofi Amoah has descended heavily on the country’s political leadership, chastising them for looting the public purse instead of creating an enabling environment for jobs. He insists that without jobs, policies like digitalization as trumpeted by the current administration will be a means to no end.

“As much as DIGITALIZATION is presented as a spoke in the wheel of development, it’s an expensive joke,” wrote Citizen Kofi, as he is popularly known, on Friday, January 12. “It’s crazy to build an expensive payment police system in a bankrupt country where the majority of the people have no payments coming to them because they have no JOBS!”

He was replying to a post on X, formerly Twitter, by Vice President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia about the launch of a digital solution to eliminate ‘ghost’ names from the government payroll. Dr Kofi Amoah says there are a lot of ‘walking ghosts’ whose plight have been as a result of policies of the current government.

THERE ARE LOTS OF “WALKING GHOSTS” IN GHANA …

The corruption and joblessness programs of the NPP have “drained” their lives away… As much as DIGITALIZATION is presented as a spoke in the wheel of development, it’s an expensive joke!! It’s crazy to build an expensive payment police system in a bankrupt country where the majority of the people have no payments coming to them because they have no JOBS!

This can only become necessary when the corrupt practices of a nation’s political elite have become an entrenched culture that has seeped into the fabric of society The cost of eliminating the Npp-type of corruption is huge and requires a never-ending and expensive series of remedies, with the potential of each remedy also requiring its own policing digital portal at some point

Digitalization in a bankrupt jobs-starved country is like building a bridge to nowhere. Let our political leadership set good examples by not looting the public purse and using the money to create JOBS for the people

Our ears have been hurting with sermons on digitalization for too long whilst corruption and unemployment rage on. Let’s get our priorities properly aligned to serve the burning needs of Ghanaians … JOBS

Good-paying JOBS pls!
