The Government Is Bereft Of Ideas-Abraham Amaliba

Private legal practitioner and a member of the communications and legal team of the National Democratic Congress, Lawyer Abraham Amaliba has reiterated that the current economic situation and the inability of the government to find lasting solutions is an indication that the government is bereft of ideas to change the economic outlook of the country.

Abraham Amaliba made this pronouncement when he appeared as a guest on the Newday show on TV3 today, February 18, 2022, to discuss some topical issues in the country.

As part of the issues under discussion were the current fuel prices and the depreciation of the Ghana cedis.

Co-panelist, a former member of Parliament for the Okaikwei North, Fuseini Issah, had suggested that the worst performance of the current administration with regards to the management of the cedi had been the best performance of the previous NDC administration. He was also of the view that the recent friction between Russia, the world's leading exporter of gas to Europe and Ukraine is somehow affecting prices in the international market and could be accounting for the increment in fuel prices.

Reacting to these claims, Lawyer Amaliba was of the view that the government has failed to manage the economy.

" The challenges we are facing in the pricing of fuel is because there are some unnecessary taxes put on our fuel prices", he said. He was of the view that the government's failure to scrap the nuisance taxes on fuel is contributing to the ever-increasing prices.

" If you have a government that has failed to manage the economy well and is now blaming Russia and Ukraine for an increase in fuel prices, then you come to one conclusion that this is a government that is bereft of ideas, has lost all options and cannot be there for the people of this country", he reiterated.
