Akufo-Addo rejects assertions Ghana’s economy is bad

President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has debunked claims that Ghana’s economy is terrible.

The President said this while responding to critics of the much-hated electronic transaction levy on BBC.

He believes the criticisms against the passage of e-levy are unfounded because it is a measure by the government to revive the economy.

β€œThe world is going through very difficult times. Ghana is no exception, Nigeria is no exception. There is no country in the world that has escaped the ravages of COVID-19… What you need to look at is the elements being put on the ground that looks beyond the Russia Ukraine war.”

β€œThe economy has gone through very difficult times. I can quote statistics of the US and UK economies, but they will not serve a purpose. It is a phenomenon that is going on which has made life difficult,” Akufo-Addo explained.
