Thomas Duanab Wuni Pearson, the District Chief Executive for Talensi in the Upper East Region, has praised President Akufo Addo for his speech to the country about the state of Ghana’s economy.
The President’s presentation was intended to defuse recent public agitations regarding Ghana’s faltering economic situation while also outlining the government’s plan for resolving the issues.
The address, according to many, did little to ease Ghanaians’ suffering and worries.
But speaking to A1 Radio on the Day Break Upper East Show, Mr. Duanab said President Akufo Addo’s address to the Ghanaian public represents the true reality on the ground and reiterates the government’s commitment to addressing the economic challenges.
“The President’s address shows how concerned the president is. We have always spoken the truth. He gave the assurance that he is not oblivious of the fact that things are not working the way we are expecting them to work and the effort we are putting in as a government to be able to solve some of the problems looking into the medium term. So for me, I think it is a good call.”
The Talensi DCE noted that the President’s statement on ‘money does not like noise’ is factual and should not be taken for granted.
“I have been to other stations and I have said that money does like noise. In the money market, the moment you start shouting at the top of your voice, you shout your currency down and you are finished. I am a finance man and I have said this repeatedly. I think I have visited three Radio stations in the region and I have always reminded people that your currency is where you store your value. If you downplay what your currency is, it take us to the level we have gotten to.”
