President Akufo-Addo, last week, ordered the Minister for Finance, to commence formal engagements with the Fund after a telephone conversation with the president and the IMF managing director, Kristalina Georgiev.

The National Zango Caucus of the NDC is by this statement calling on the Vice President, H.E Alhaji Bawumia to with immediate effect, intervene and ensure Government subsidizes the unreasonably high cost of the annual Pilgrimage to Mecca, to enable the ordinary Muslim have an opportunity to fulfill his or her religious obligations.
