A leading member of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP), Gabby Otchere Darko has described the suggestions given by the Director of Research at the Institute of Economic Affairs (IEA) Dr John Kwakye to the effect that government must cut expenditure as well as take other actions to resolve the challenges of the economy, as good suggestions.

However, Gabby said the presidency has already cut expenditure by 30 per cent.

“I am reading good suggestions on how to deal with the fiscal difficulties, like cutting down on govt expenditure. But, already spending is down by more than 20% and MDAs are feeling the pinch. The Presidency alone has cut expenditure down by over 30%. Govt must up its PR game!” Gabby wrote in a tweet.
