Gabby Otchere-Darko, a private attorney and member of Ghana’s ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP), has acknowledged the severity of the country’s economy and its impact on its citizens.
“The struggle is real,’ he claims.
In a Facebook post on Friday, the NPP member bemoaned the rising rate of inflation and the difficulties it poses for Ghanaians.
Incomes are straining to see the back of inflation’s long shadow, let alone the many unemployed with no income, so if inflation does not slow, it will soon be racing on its own. “The fight is for authenticity,” he wrote.
The nation’s September inflation rate reached an all-time high of 37.2%. The August 2022 figure of 33.9% contrasts sharply with this.
The September inflation rates in five categories were greater than the national average, as reported by the Ghana Statistical Service.
As a result, residents have renewed their demands that the government takes action.
