The Deputy National Communications Director of the New Patriotic Party, Kamaldeen Abdulai has indicated that the current economic situation in the country could have been worse if not for the competence of the current administration.
He made this bold declaration when he appeared as a panelist on the “Newsday show” on TV3 with host, Johnnie Hughes and the member of Parliament for South Dayi constituency, Rockson-Nelson Dafeamekpor.
The government has come under enormous criticism on the back of the rising cost of fuel, transportation, high inflation, high cost of groceries, depreciation of the local currency, and non-payment of salaries and allowances to some government personnel (NABCO, National Service Personnel).
Addressing, the issue Kamaldeen indicated that times are indeed hard and that the government is working around the clock to assuage the situation and reduce the burden on Ghanaians.
He was also of the view that the Covid19 pandemic and the Rusia-Ukraine war have hugely impacted the economy negatively.
“If it wasn't for the competent hands this economy found itself, the situation that we find ourselves in this country could have been worse. The economy would have suffered more than we are seeing” he reiterated.
The South Dayi MP, Rockson-Dafeamekpor quickly rebutted and indicated that the government is competent in the reverse.
