Joseph Yammin, a former Deputy national NADMO coordinator in the erstwhile John Mahama administration has stated that times are hard for Ghanaians under the leadership of the New Patriotic Party government.
Speaking on Pure Fm in Kumasi on Wednesday, April 24, Joseph Yammin recounted a friend’s experience at church on Easter Sunday.
“I have an audio on my phone concerning a fundraising that took place in one of the known churches in Kumasi. …and I tell you, people couldn’t afford fifty Ghana cedis. Kwame , this is one of the churches that could raise 500 cedis some years ago. Ask yourself; what has changed?”.
“Kwame [pointing to the host] Times are hard! We’re in very difficult times. Christians can’t even show gratitude to God with money. It’s that bad!” He lamented.
Yammin adds to the increasing number of Ghanaians who have complained about the current state of the economy.
Actress Yvonne Nelson, hip life artiste, Shatta Wale and academician Ransford Gyampo have called on the Akufo-Addo government to fix the hardships facing Ghanaians.
Meanwhile, President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has admitted the economy of Ghana is going through some trying times.
He has, however, dismissed concerns that these difficulties amount to a crisis. He assures that the government is on top of the situation.
