The visit by the IMF mission would have been the third review of Ghana’s performance under the programme.
A leaked memo from the security operatives in the country last week confirmed that Ghana and Togo are the next target for Islamist militants, following high-profile attacks this year in Burkina Faso and Ivory Coast. The memo called for better border protection.
Leader of the IMF mission to Ghana, Joel Toujas Benarte, the country is on track so far in meeting most of the targets set under the three-year program that will see almost one billion dollars released to Ghana by 2017
The review by the IMF mission is seen by many as critical because if government passes the test, it will not only pave the way for the release of about 116 million dollars but convince investors that government is on track to stabilizing the economy and implement programs, especially, in election an year, to march revenue with expenditure and control the rising debts.
