Life in Ghana now is difficult – Ex Prez. Kufuor

By on


Former President John Kufuor has said the current difficulties in Ghana require that President John Mahama puts in place policies that will reverse the trend and ease things up for Ghanaians.

“When you go to the market, everybody says life is difficult; it is common knowledge that life is difficult,” Kufuor told Vision 1 FM Wednesday.

According to him, the difficulties are so much that he cannot list all of them, but he mentioned high utility tariffs, cost of living and the fall of the Cedi in the first three quarters of 2014 as examples.

He said the President must make sure that intervening policies toward easing the difficulties inure to the benefit of all Ghanaians and not just members of the governing party.

Mr Kufuor nonetheless acknowledged that being a leader of a country is not easy. Ghana is currently in talks with the International Monetary Fund for a three-year programme to rescue the ailing economy.

There were also demonstrations and protest marches by various labour unions in the course of the year over welfare and salary issues.
