I am the new IMF Ghana needs – Nana Kwame Bediako

Written by ...






The founder and leader of the New Force, Nana Kwame Bediako, popularly known as Cheddar, has expressed his disappointment in how the Ghanaian economy has been managed over the years.

According to him, Ghana would not need any foreign aid to survive if the country’s natural resources had been efficiently managed.

“Although I made half a million outside Ghana, all the industrialisation and projects I have in my empire came from the resources I mobilised in this country,” Cheddar said in an interview with Kwadwo Jantuah on Nhyira FM’s ‘Kuro Yi Mu Nsem’.

He further explained that his wealth was made through hard work, contrary to the criminal tag placed on him by some individuals.”I don’t blame those who think I made my wealth from drugs and other vices. It is common in our part of the world that people believe you cannot make it with through hard work without politics and drugs. This is why we need a change of mind and understand that the Black man is also capable. I know with time people will see who truly I am,” he said.Cheddar outlined his plans to improve the living conditions of Ghanaians and help bring the economy back to life.

The independent presidential aspirant believes he will be able to mobilise the needed revenue for the economy, where the concept of going to the International Monetary Fund (IMF) for bailouts will be a thing of the past.”I am the new IMF for Ghana if I can find a solution for Ghana to gain $10 billion to $30 billion within 4 years,” he said.

The Akufo-Addo administration has been criticised for having the largest size of government in the fourth republic, which many Ghanaians feel is a waste of taxpayer’s money.

On the number of ministers he will appoint when elected as president, the leader of the New Force thinks less than twenty ministers are enough to manage this country.When quizzed about his stance on the LGBTQ+ controversy, Cheddar asked that the discussion in the media space ceases since it makes the subject more popular and draws the attention of the youth and children to it.

“I was brought up in Ghana, and I know nothing about LGBTQI+. I think we were not taught that, and we must be cautious about how we are making it popular through various mediums,” he noted.

On the call for the amendment or complete overhaul of the 1992 constitution, Cheddar believes it is time to make the necessary changes to ensure good governance.”I think the constitution of Ghana should be reviewed slowly. If you try to change something with force, it can be broken,” he said.

Cheddar called on Ghanaians, especially the youth, to arise and support the New Force, which he believes is the only hope for the country.
