“This is not the time for jerky manoeuvres”, Kwame Pianim emphatically stated.
Whilst suggesting a brilliant idea for the incumbent government in other to generate revenue aside abandoning the implementation of the most anticipated ‘momo’ E-levy, the economist highlighted that, the incumbent government should introduce the toll booths and other initiatives which will not affect the livelihood of Ghanaians since the economy wasn’t stable enough.

If not restored quickly, we may do damage to the rural economy and especially the women traders there.
