Hardships in Ghana: The IMF team’s response in Ghana to the challenges facing Ghanaians
We were taught words of wisdom; that one of the very important ways to solve problems almost permanently is to identify the causes and factors that contribute to the problem.
Words of wisdom taught us again; that solving problems partially or solving problems surfaces; or better yet, covering up the causes of problems, can escalate situations and make problem solving impossible.
The Republic of Ghana is currently in crisis. The broken economy the country is currently facing has led to many difficulties; including hardship or high cost of living. These problems; we all (as Ghanaians) can see and feel in our daily lives.
Some people on political campaign platforms in 2016 (before the 2016 election); presented themselves as experts in economics and public administration. They were given the opportunity to lead and solve problems in the country. What we have today…has made things worse.
The New Patriotic Party (NPP) government led by Nana Addo in 2017/18 (before covid-19 and the Russo-Ukrainian war) began to wreck Ghana’s economy; misleading High cost of living and total destitution in the country.
The current outbreak of coronavirus disease (COVID-19) was first reported from Wuhan-China on 31 December 2019; and by March 11, 2020, the World Health Organization declared it a pandemic.
Again; The Russia-Ukraine conflict started in 2014, but the Russians actually invaded Ukraine on February 24, 2022.
The sad part of the problem is; the Nana Addo-Bawumia-Ofori Atta government is over-blaming the COVID-19 pandemic and the Russia-Ukraine war as the root cause of the country’s economic woes.
We have also seen recently how the IMF has fallen prey to fraud and “cooked stories from the NPP government; that the COVID-19 pandemic and the Russian-Ukrainian conflict have indeed caused Ghana’s woes.
Indeed, these two crises (the COVID-19 pandemic and the Russia-Ukraine conflict) have had a huge impact on countries and people’s lives around the world; not just in Ghana as expressed or “painted” by our government.

The reality is this; our woes started way back in 2017 due to corruption, failed government and bad leadership; no covid-19 or no war.
This Intentional Monetary Fund (IMF) people are not Ghanaians. They do not live with us in the country; and so they do not know the reality on the ground.
We the citizens of Ghana started facing these economic hardships way back in 2017 when there was no covid and no war.
The message now to the IMF is…if they really want to help solve the problems in Ghana, they must first well identify the root causes and the main factors that contribute to these problems (corruption and NPP government failure).
The IMF needs to face reality and stop using the Nana Addo-Bawumia-Ofori Atta government’s “edited data” to distract.
