Economic Hardship: The Reality On The Ground Is Scary; Kuffour Was Right – NPP’s Obiri Boahen Bemoans



Former Deputy General Secretary of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Nana Obiri Boahen, has bemoaned the ballooning cost of living.

Speaking in a Neat FM interview in a reaction to a statement by former president John Agyekum Kuffour, Obiri Boahen said that no member of the NPP can say that the things Kufuor talked about are false.

He added that the hardships in the country are real and the former president should be allowed to express his views.

“The other time. I said that ‘akpeteshie’ (local alcohol) is now GHS4 per tot. Yesterday, I heard that in Sunyani, it is now selling GHS5 per tot and the full bottle is being sold at many places for GHS25. So, the reality of the situation on the ground is that the hardship is becoming scary.

“Yesterday, I read what President Kufuor said at a meeting with IMANI and it is generating a lot of issues. If President Kufuor speaks, who am I to criticise him? And I will never doubt anything President Kufuor says because of his experience in politics.

“No NPP member will not be cornered about the things Kufuor said… I have seen that people have started insulting him, what did he say wrong? Did he insult someone, did he talk against someone,” he said in Twi.

The former NPP General Secretary added that Ghanaians should brace for more hardships because prices of goods and services tend to go up during festive periods.
