The Coalition for Restoration (CFR), a pressure group affiliated to the National Democratic Congress (NDC) party, will hold a public lecture to discuss recent happenings in Ghana’s economy. The cedi depreciation and the Bank of Ghana’s measures to stabilize it, the three billion oversubscribed Eurobond, the last tranche of the IMF credit facility and related matters.
The lecture will be a post-mortem of Ghana’s four-year Extended Credit Facility Programme (ECF) with the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and a preview of the economy after the IMF has finally exited.

VENUE: Mensvic hotel, East legon. Accra
DATE: Thursday, April 4, 2019
TIME: 12:00 midday.
WHO CAN ATTEND: All Ghanaians, especially sympathizers of the NDC, finance and economic persons and students of finance and economics
It is our conviction that the interest of the Ghanaian taxpayer will be better served if the untold and hidden facts about our economy are also brought to the fore for critical evaluation alongside what government wants people to hear.
Over the years, the speaker has sufficiently acquitted himself in the subject area by serving as one of the most credible and alternative voices on the economy to the government’s one-sided positions on issues of finance and economics. It is expected that the lecture will provide Hon Adongo another platform to sufficiently deal with trending issues such as the cedi depreciation, the issuance of a $3 billion Eurobond, the exit from IMF and the general state of the economy in the after two years of the Nana Akufo-Addo and Bawumia administration.
We use this opportunity to invite all persons with the economy at heart to come and listen to the erudite Hon Isaac Adongo place the economy under surgical hands.
