I Know Ghanaians Are Suffering But … – Akufo-Addo



President Akufo-Addo has recognized the country’s current hardship. According to him, he is constantly briefed on the issue.


The President stated that he rules the country from within, not from outside. As a result, he is aware of what is going on in the country.

President Akufo-Addo remarked on Kumasi-based OTEC FM on Monday as part of his Ashanti Regional trip that his administration is working hard to improve the situation of Ghanaians.

He cited the government’s negotiations with the International Monetary Fund (IMF) as part of the plans to resolve the crisis.

“I know times are hard for Ghanaians. The data comes to me. So I’m very much aware. I know things are hard for Ghanaians. But two things I can say is that we have a plan and programme to help us resolve this.

“That is why we are in negotiations with the IMF. It’s part and parcel of a larger programme of development we want to embark upon to solve the current hardship in the country.

“So it is not like the government is not doing anything about it,” the President said.

Meanwhile, he has assured Ghanaians that his government is devoted to safeguarding them.

“We are working hard to try and find a solution to these problems because we know Ghanaians are suffering.”

Earlier, the President stated that he is not concerned by demands for the New Patriotic Party (NPP) to be defeated in the 2024 election.

Such threats, he claims, do not faze him.

“No problem. I am saying people make those kinds of threats; me they don’t frighten me.”

Although he realizes that the public may support a party with high expectations, he does not see the need to threaten the government if it fails to deliver.

“If you decide to vote for the NDC in the general election, it is your choice and that is not my problem. No one will force you to vote for someone,” he stated.
