We need update on the economy like we did Covid-19: A letter to Dr Bawumia

Feature Article
Dr Mahamadu Bawumia, head of the Economic Management Team

It has become necessary for me to write to you sir the economic messiah of our time and the economic team of our Republic Ghana to update the country on the economic hardship and the cedi to dollar depreciation every day.

A few weeks ago, the government led us to the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and told Ghanaians that after the IMF encounter, things will fall into place but rather things are worsening day by day, which I find very strange in this country and my reason for knocking your door today to start preparing to update the entire nation.

Again, I want to ask if Ghanaians don't deserve to be updated on this economic situation in the country as things are falling apart like the way Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo was doing during the Covid-19 era.

When Ghanaians were complaining of hardship a few months ago government spokespersons came out to rant as if we don't know what we were feeling at that time. In fact, where are the economic messiah of our country, and the best finance minister, where are they?

I think it is time Ghanaians woke up to this government and demanded an update on the economy because Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, the President of the land, once told us that they know how to bring back the economy but not human life during his fellow Ghanaians update. Ghanaians deserve better so please we need an update in fact serious update on the economy, cedi depreciation and many more.

I went to the bank and the dollar was 11 cedis 50 pesewas in the morning around 10 am when I returned to the same bank it was 12 cedis 40 pesewas.

And around 12 pm, the dollar was 12 cedis 90 pesewas and around 3 pm it jumped to 14 cedis.

This is not what we were promised and this is one of the reasons we need Dr Bawumia to come out and update us on this problem. 

My humble question is: is it bad economic management or did the government miss the fundamentals that allowed the cedi to expose the managers of our economy?

We need Dr Alhaji Mahamudu Bawumia to come out and tell us what is happening in Ghana.

God bless our homeland Ghana and make us great and strong.

Yours Faithfully
