Today’s problems did not start now! The fact is successive governments have laid the platform for today’s nightmare and have been allowed to move on because current politicians have sought it fit not to audit their predecessors! Now the responsibility is theirs! Decisive and firm leadership pooling more talented resources from a larger and more dynamic pool prepared to not only think out of the box but capable of using global contacts to make a difference is what is required! We are indeed one step away from a disintegration no one wants. All sides of the political divide need to see our current situation as a national disaster!
As i boarded a tram in Northern Europe i received a call from Ghana to tell me that fuel prices were being increased @20% then i heard that the Cedi was approaching 6 to £1!!!
In disbelief i called Cow Lane in Accra and was told that the rates were as follows!
£ $ €
5.95 3.5 4.75
Planning for businesses with this anarchical situation is impossible and coupled with other non existent or unreliable services life is gradually becoming beyond unbearable for everyone!
No situation or level of pain can last forever and that is what we must all pray against and fear!
