Boakye Agyarko, a former Energy Minister, believes the country’s current economy is in bad shape.
As a result, Mr Agyarko urges the administration, led by the President, to admit this to Ghanaians so that they may join in enacting measures to correct the problem.
According to him, no institution or country can fix the country’s economic problems, which is why the people must be involved.
He stated Ghanaians are suffering from economic hardships while speaking on Asempa FM’s Ekosiisen on Monday, June 20.
“The economy is not in a good place. That is the first admission we have to make boldly. And we have to put plans in place and that calls for a collective sacrifice.
“Let’s share the pain. We are in a situation now where we have played so much, and now we are in dire times. We have to psych the nation for the difficulties ahead of us. We have to take our public financial management seriously and take our responsibility as citizens seriously.
“No one will come from anywhere to help us. We have to admit that we are living above our standards, we either come down or double up to meet those standards,” he said.
