Ghana recorded 8.5% economic growth in 2017 mainly driven by oil and gas production but Seth Terkper found this uninspiring. Speaking on Joy News’ late evening news analysis show PM Express, Wednesday, Seth Terkper said the National Democratic Congress (NDC) government recorded 14% economic growth in 2011. Seth Terkper said if the NDC government could achieve 14% GDP growth from one oil field, the NPP government cannot call 8.5% from two more fields as good enough. But that is what the NDC did to obtain 14.4% economic growth despite having only one oil field to draw petrol dollars from. Seth Terkper suggested he had not come to bury Caesar and he would also not come to praise him.
