An investigative and editor in chief for the fourth Estate media, journalist Manasseh Azure Awuni has told Ghanaians that he keep wondering how African leaders in West Africa are taking much time to adopt one currency in West Africa when is has been announced that, the currency called "ECO" to be adopted in 2027 and Ghanaians has replied him that those old men gathered in Accra as African leaders for a meeting are their problem.
According to Manasseh Azure Awuni, he believe that his great grandchildren will live to see the adoption of the currency because it is taking African leaders too much time to adopt the currency.
Most Ghanaians who reacted to his message stated that this leaders are their problem because it has been some many years now that their leaders has been discussing this currency issue, and they keep wasting a lot of time on it but they have never seen any benefits from it since their childhood.
Some people reacted that when they heard of the currency Eco, they were in primary school and they have now completed university, done with their national service and working but the currency has not been adopted yet which amazed them.
"ECOWAS common currency, Eco, to be adopted in 2027. I hope my great-grandchildren will live to see the adoption of this currency" Manasseh Azure Awuni said on his facebook wall today, Monday, 21st June, 2021.
"Those old men gathered in Accra are our problem. They all preside over very poor population while they fly with expensive jets to Ghana to discuss issues that could’ve been discussed using zoom" another Ghanaian said but gave a profound suggestion to them to cut down expenditure for their meetings.
Another person stated that: as for Africa no no no! Ordinary currency over 50 nations cannot adopt and start using it. Since my primary school, we have been hearing "ECO" is coming but I just attended the naming ceremony of my 5th grandchild! If talk of Human rights abuses yeeaaahhh!! They are there! Corruption good, they are there! Chaiiii! Lord Lugard and others who discovered this African countries need forensic investigation.
"I remembered when Paa Kwesi Ndoum was a minister under Kuffour, it was supposed to be lunched on the 1st October, 2005, but to no avail" someone gave a brief history on it.
Someone said: Great management, 2027 is the set date, how about the potential postponements that will come up? I see 2050.
