The finance minister under the erstwhile John Evans Atta Mills administration, Dr Kwabena Duffuor, has revealed that he does not know how much he is worth as a businessman.
The economist, banker, and entrepreneur said it has never occurred to him to value how much he is worth.
He said he does not know the value of his assets, adding that it has never occurred to him to do so.
The former Governor of the Bank of Ghana and owner of a conglomerate of businesses in the country, made this revelation on Accra-based Asempa FM.
Dr Duffuor, who has shown interest in becoming the flag bearer of the main opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) for the 2024 general elections, explained that at a point in time through the Institute of Fiscal Studies (IFS), he wanted to know who controlled Ghana’s economy and it came out that foreigners did.
“If you go to the mining sector, as well as the banking sectors of the economy, it is owned by foreigners,” he stressed.
“Ghana’s economy is in the hands of foreigners,” he noted, adding: “This does not spur development in all the sectors of the economy.”
He noted that there is a need for Ghanaians to take over the commanding heights of the economy.
He said management is a situational science that must also be applied to solve problems.
