Member of Parliament for Assin Central Constituency, Kennedy Ohene Agyapong, has said the World Bank, IMF and western nations have ganged up to make President Akufo-Addo unpopular, following the latter’s resolve to make Ghana self-sufficient to wean the country off from foreign aid.
“This is what Akufo-Addo wants to do and he’s facing challenges; the whole world wants to make him unpopular just as they did to Kwame Nkrumah; the CIA was behind the coup that overthrew Nkrumah because they realised that Nkrumah was educating the black people to liberate themselves,” he said.
He says the west has been the greatest nemesis of Africa and would do everything to ensure the black race fails, reason it has unleashed its ambassadors and representatives in Ghana to criticize the Akufo-Addo administration on a daily basis, just to make the president unpopular.
Speaking on Net 2 TV in an interview monitored by MyNewsGh.com on Monday, he said the only way to salvage Africa from the claws of the “corrupt” Breton Woods institutions like the World Bank and IMF is to liberate our minds from reliance on the west.
“After physically putting us in chains, now they are using their minds to beat us and we are always going to be underdogs unless we liberate ourselves; and we can only liberate ourselves when we are self-sufficient and reduce the dependence on these white people”, he noted.
