The Akufo-Addo-led government has blamed the current turmoil in the country on the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic and the Russian-Ukrainian war.
Government officials say those two problems have thrown things out of gear in the country and led to general hardships.

According to Oppong Nkrumah, the country's dire financial situation will be worsened by such a spectacle in Asia.
Speaking on Accra-based Asempa FM, the Ofoase-Ayirebi MP said the financial turmoil in the country was not created by the government but rather by external forces.
"There is a third problem coming, do you know that China has extended the tenure of office for president Xi Jinping? If indeed China carries on with its plans, its case will be similar to Russia-Ukraine. Can you imagine the damage, especially with the increase in crude oil prices? If indeed China attacks Taiwan, what will be the implication?" he quizzed.

He also accused the Ghanaian media of not paying attention to China's possible takeover of Taiwan and its effect on the economy.
The comments of Oppong Nkrumah follow intensifying efforts for President Nana Akufo-Addo to accept the blame and resign for plunging the country into a crisis.
