- NDC stalwart, Joseph Yammin has also joined the many Ghanaians to declare economic hardship Ghanaians wee currently facing
- He said times were hard, and even churches could not raise funds
Former Deputy Coordinator in Charge of Operations at the National Disaster Management Organisation (NADMO) in the erstwhile John Mahama administration, Joseph Yammin, has stated that times are indeed hard for Ghanaians under the Akufo-Addo led government.
Yammin adds to the increasing number of Ghanaians who are have complained about the current state of the economy including actress Yvonne Nelson, self-proclaiming dancehall king , Shatta Wale and academician Ransford Gyampo who are calling on the Akufo-Addo government to fix the hardships Ghanaians are facing.
Speaking on Pure Fm in Kumasi on Wednesday, April 24, 2019, Yammin recounted a friend’s experience at church on Easter Sunday where during a fund raising, the church could not meet the targeted amount.
“I have an audio on my phone concerning a fundraising that took place in one of the known churches in Kumasi and I tell you, people couldn’t afford fifty Ghana cedis. Kwame, this is one of the churches that could raise 500 Ghana cedis some years ago. Ask yourself; what has changed?”
“Times are hard! We’re in very difficult times. Christians can’t even show gratitude to God with money. It’s that bad,” he lamented.
Meanwhile, President Akufo-Addo had earlier admitted the economy of Ghana was going through some trying times but promised better days after its exit from the albatross IMF program
He however, dismissed concerns that these difficulties amounts to a crisis, assuring all and sundry that the government is on top of the situation.
