As such, Ghanaians are being asked to exercise a little patience.
“When the President was speaking, he spoke about ensuring the strict supervision of the forex. Going forward, I think these are some of the measures we need to take. I also heard people talking about the fact that the government didn’t elaborate on almost all the things. What the President did was to give the synopsis of what they intend doing.”
“If you now want to get the policy actions or directions on what the president or the government is to do, it would be captured in the budget. It would be captured in the 2023 budget. That is where you would see, point by point, what the president and for that matter, the government intends to do to arrest the situation,” he said.
Earlier, Mr. Akonga hoped that the President would dismiss, with immediate effect, the Finance Minister, Ken Ofori Atta and Governor of the Bank of Ghana Ernest Kwamina Addison.
