The Director for Communications for the NPP, Yaw Buaben Asamoah, during his press conference last week, is reported to have said that some people are peddling falsehood that Ghana is hard, which is not true.
Reacting to this rhetorics by Yaw Buaben Asamoah on 'GH TODAY' on GHONE television this morning, a member of the National Interest Movement, Rhoda Ayana, has indicated that some of them buy a loaf of bread at one dollar, so Yaw Buaben Asamoah shouldn't say that those saying that Ghana is hard are peddling falsehood.
According to Rhoda Ayana, she doesn't know what else she would expect Yaw Buaben Asamoah to say as a communicator of the government in power. She doesn't think he would say anything else as to whether the country is good or bad. The way she sees it, his (Yaw Buaben Asamoah) is to say that the country is good, but from where she is sitting the country is hard.
She indicated that Ghana is hard. The cost of living is up, youth unemployment is up, and we are in debt. So, it just tells us that Ghana is hard. Yaw Buaben Asamoah has his way of measuring the poverty lines of Ghanaians. He doesn't see it as poverty when someone else says that there is poverty in Ghana.
"I can tell Yaw Buaben Asamoah that the cost of fuel is killing us, cost of food is killing us, and that today in some areas, at least we are buying a loaf of bread for one dollar. One might say that nothing has changed because, over the years, we've been going through the process of shortages."
She said that this time around, all over the world, covid-19 has brought its problems, and it has affected everything, and the government of the day has blamed everything on covid-19. Our lack of resources is covid-19, lack of progress is covid-19, so if Yaw Buaben Asamoah's government is saying this and he can still sit and think that someone else is peddling falsehood, then that's unfortunate.
He should come out and tell Ghanaians that with the agenda111, they can do it because the money is there, but here is the case that we are being told to tighten our belt where public sector workers are being told to get 4% as increments, and he thinks that the country is doing well?
She added that there is poverty in this country. We have accepted it and are moving on, so Yaw Buaben Asamoah shouldn't come and add more insults to the injuries that we already have.
