The Managing Editor of the Insight newspaper, Kwesi Pratt Jnr., stated that the International Monetary Fund is "untruthful" and "unreliable".

His comment came on the back of a commendation from the IMF that Ghana’s economy is in good shape.

"I get amazed when there is a whole lot of debate on IMF because there’s a history that shows they are not reliable and untruthful. They didn’t speak the truth to President Kufuor and they didn’t speak the truth to former President Rawlings; they have never spoken the truth and whenever they praise you, you should be careful because it might be diabolical” he said while contributing to a panel discussion on Peace FM morning show ‘Kokrokoo’ in 2019.
