"It must be done in plain and simple language for ordinary people to understand. The confusing terminologies that are typically deployed by demagogues to talk their ways out, without communicating, must be toned down," Prof Gyampo said.
He also said it was commendable that some of the proposals suggested by well-meaning people in Ghana to save the economy have been marked for inclusion in the public address by the Minister.
"There can be no meaningful navigation through these hard times without the support of the people," Prof Gyampo said.
