Ghanaians would cheer the President’s planned speech on the economy on Sunday, October 30, according to Tolon MP Habib Iddrisu.
He claims that the speech would discuss important steps to revive the faltering national economy.
The Second Deputy Majority Chief Whip said he is optimistic that Ghanaians will embrace the President’s speech despite the massive public agitations on the health of the economy in an interview with NewsFile on Saturday.
“I anticipate the President will provide a broad perspective and implement certain actions. And my confidence is high. People will applaud and say, “Yes, there is optimism, but we still have a lot to accomplish,” once the President finishes speaking tomorrow, the MP said.
President Nana Akufo-Addo will on Sunday, October 30 address the nation on the economic challenges facing the country and its people. The President made this known in a Facebook post on Thursday. The address is scheduled for 8:00 pm, and will be telecast on “GTV and on major television networks across the country”, the post said. The address by the President comes in the wake of recent public agitations about the ailing economy.
Ghana’s economy is now struggling, which has resulted in rising living expenses as well as what some have referred to as “galloping inflation.”
The native currency of the nation is likewise experiencing volatility when compared to the US dollar and other significant trading currencies worldwide.
Many Ghanaians have since lamented the situation and urged the government to swiftly address the matter, especially in light of graduate unemployment and the general suffering in the system.
In light of the current difficulties, some people may find solace in the President’s planned speech.
Government officials claim they are attempting to improve the economy in the meantime.
