A man who indicates he rides motorbikes for a living went to a local bread store in Accra only to find out that the pastry he used to buy for a cheaper price was now GHc7.
In a video that was made public by famous relationship advisor, Abena Manokekame, on her Twitter handle, the man indicated that he bought the bread for GHc5 just this year.
"How can you increase bread price two times in just one year? I bought this bread for GHc5 cedis this same year. I also bought it for GHc6. And now you are telling me it is GHc7?" he asked furiously.

He was told it was not the fault of the bread sellers; that prices were going up but he also argued the punishment should not go to him because it was not his fault either.
Social media reactions
A few people have been sharing their thoughts on this.
I completely understand his frustration, businesses are taking advantage of the situation to deliberately increase prices. Prices on petroleum products have been increasing year on year but some prices remained stable during those periods.

People take advantage of worst situations to be wicked. Are drivers increasing their fares anyhow? No! Cus they have proper regulations but those who sell other stuff are increasing their prices on weekly basis n are blaming fuel increment
Birthday celebrated for pothole
In another hilarious but sad report reflecting the woes Ghanaians are facing, a deep hole on a road at Cantonments in Accra, near the Lands Commission, was left unattended for months.
The pothole that appeared intentionally cut out impedes movement on the stretch that is busy but the authorities who also use the road have not taken any steps to fill it up.
Citi TV's BreakfastDaily team decided to visit the spot to celebrate the pothole and cut a cake at the exact location to mark the hole's 'birthday'.
