Times are tough; We can’t even afford common millet porridge – Abdallah

“I got to the barrier, Ojam, the place that they sell the kooko [millet porridge]. I bought kooko Ghc2, Smith. Can you see this kooko? The whole of this is Ghc2 [holding up a bag of porridge]. See this bofrot? 1 is Ghc1.”

“Assuming you have a family of 3 and you want to buy this for them every day, can you? In a month, I would have been buying Ghc150 just for breakfast. My children, the other two would have also done Ghc150 each,” Jonathan Abdallah Salifu, an Upper East Regional Communication Team Member of the National Democratic bemoaned the high cost of living in the country on A1 Radio’s Day Break Upper East Show today, Thursday, July 28, 2022, while holding up a bagged portion of porridge and 2 pieces of ‘bofrot’.

Mr. Salifu explained that it was unreasonable for the government to continue to blame Russia’s war in Ukraine when Ghana produced copious amounts of millet in the Upper East Region. He contended that the government has failed to live up to the expectation of the Ghanaian people.

“We farm and we have a lot of millet. This is millet kooko, so you can imagine that if you go to Kumasi or Accra, this might be Ghc4 or Ghc5.”

Mr. Abdallah called on government to take some responsibility for the current economic hardship and stop blaming COVID-19 and the war in Ukraine.
