The Communications Director at the Presidency has said efforts are being put in place by government to relieve Ghanaians of the economic hardships.
Mr Arhin was reacting to former president John Dramani Mahama’s observation that the current state of affairs is unimpressive as the Akufo-Addo administration nears the end of the first year since his mandate was renewed.
Eugene Arhin, at a press briefing on Thursday, said, “everybody in Ghana acknowledges that there are hardships, even the President himself has acknowledged it, that is why every effort is being put in place to make sure that these hardships are relieved. And I will just suggest that the former President should take a chill pill and wait and see how best the budget would address the concerns of the average Ghanaian.”
Attributing the current economic hardships to the advent of Covid-19, Eugene Arhin said government is committed to resuscitating the economy.
“It is not as if this government is sitting down and has thrown its hands in despair and waiting for a divine intervention from the almighty, we are going ahead to do whatever we have to do [to relieve Ghanaians],” he said.
