Samuel Ofosu Ampofo ,the Chairman of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), has bemoaned the extreme hardship Ghanaians are having to bear under the leadership of President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo
According to him, the suffering of Ghanaians from an ever-increasing cost of living coupled with a further increase in existing taxes has placed a number of people in dire situations hence the need for President Akufo-Addo to “stretch a hand of cooperation to all Ghanaians, able to play a role in rescuing our dear nation from the abyss it is falling.”
“I’m pleading with President Akufo-Addo to take the measures needed to bring relief to suffering Ghanaians,” he said on Accra-based Kingdom FM.
According to him, the NPP Government is even worse than any government Ghana has ever had.
He continued: “In addition, I encourage the President and his close associates to seize the occasion to create an atmosphere that is more tolerant of criticism and devoid of intimidation in order for the media, CSOs, and individuals to freely express themselves and contribute to national discourse.”
He indicated that although some past governments were referred to as ones that superintended over economic hardships, the difficult times Ghanaians are currently living in under the Akufo-Addo administration are the “worst” in many years.
