The Finance Minister Ken Ofori-Atta has said that he acknowledges that the Ghanaian economy is facing difficulties and the people of Ghana are enduring hardships.
He assured that the government is determined to find solutions to the challenges facing the people.
Appearing before the 8-member ad hoc committee that is investigating the allegations made against him by the Minority, on Friday November 18, he said “Today, I acknowledge our economy is facing difficulties and the people of Ghana are enduring hardships.
“As the person President Akufo-Addo has put in charge of the economy, I feel the pain personally, professionally and in my soul. I see and feel the terrible impact of rising prices of goods and services on the lives and livelihoods of ordinary Ghanaians.
“I feel the stress of running a business. But, it is the strength and perseverance of the Ghanaian people that inspire me and my colleagues in government every morning, to press on.
“That is what gives me the strength to press on to find solutions and relief for Ghanaians to the myriad of problems that our country and the rest of the world are facing, especially, since March 2020,” he said.
