Ghanaians are suffering under Akufo-Addo
Meanwhile, former president John Dramani Mahama in an earlier report filed by YEN.com.gh said people are really suffering in the country as a result of the difficult times under the Akufo-Addo administration.
According to Mahama, the prices of food and other important commodities keep shooting up on a daily basis.
He added that the cost of fuel at the pumps keep going up thus, affecting the price of goods on the market.
“Fuel costs are rising, every day the pump prices go up,” he said.
Mahama said this year, many unions were unhappy when an insignificant 4% increment was given to them while Article 71 officeholders were given bigger increments.
