Ghanaians angry with hypocrisy of economic experts – Mahama

Politics
John Dramani Mahama

Former President John Dramani Mahama has said Ghanaians are angry by what he described as the “hypocrisy of so-called economic experts” who asked them to forget economic statistics and look at the escalation of cement and other products on the market but are today holding up statistics while in government.

Mr Mahama had said Ghanaians were going through unprecedented levels of hardship under the Akufo-Addo-led government.

He said the current living condition of the ordinary Ghanaian is unmatched under any administration.

However, elements in the government have suggested that Mr Mahama is the one fueling the perception of hardship, an allegation the former President has debunked.

In a Facebook post, Mr Mahama said: “Our people are galled by the hypocrisy of so-called economic experts, asking them in 2016 to forget about economic statistics and look at the escalation of prices of cement and other products on the market, and then today hearing the same experts in government hold-up statistics, inflation etc., and say that life is better for them. And that the perception of hardship in Ghana is a creation of Mahama.”
