Present a debt management plan - Ken Thompson to Ken Ofori-Attah
Kenneth Kwamina Thompson, Chief Executive Officer (CEO), Dalex Finance and Leasing Company - a leading non-bank financial institution has called on the minister-designate for Finance, Ken Ofori-Atta provide a debt management structure to the country.
He said this in response to the finance minister designate's assurance that the Akufo-Addo-led government will not increase electricity bills anytime soon.
According to Ken Thompson, the huge borrowing appetite of the previous government nearly collapsed the banking and finance sector.
“This government must provide how they are going to manage and service the huge debt left by the previous government. They must also focus much attention on job creation” he said.
The minister-designate since his appointment said they will re-examine the energy mix, work to reduce prices of fuel and electricity.
