The Russian Embassy in Ghana in a tweet has reiterated they are not to be blamed for soaring food prices in Ghana.
The Russian Embassy in Ghana has confirmed earlier assertions that Russia’s invasion of Ukraine cannot be the cause of Ghana’s skyrocketing food costs.
According to a tweet from the Russian Embassy, it cannot be held responsible for the rise in food prices on the continent of Africa.
It said that the Ghanaian media had fell for a Western trick accusing Russia of driving up food prices globally.
Explaining why it must not be blamed for soaring food prices in Ghana, the embassy noted that in support of its assertion that the invasion of Ukraine has nothing to do with Ghana’s economic difficulties, it produced a comprehensive list of imports from other nations.
Food inflation had increased as a result of the skyrocketing food prices, which in turn caused inflation to increase further.
Michael Nii Yarboi Annan, a financial expert, has voiced his displeasure with the president Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo’s administration.
His remarks follow the 2022 mid-year budget speech, in which Annan called the Ofori-Atta budget “an affront to Ghanaians.”
He claimed that in order to avoid being labeled a failure, the government is hiding from the populace.
“You’re clinging to reality because of concern that we’ll declare you to have failed. Government officials are being careless in their rule. The President is dozing off. If so, there was no reason for this midyear assessment to take place. Ghanaians take offense at it.
What purpose does Parliament serve? He hardly said anything yesterday. The Parliament, in my opinion, is the only thing that can preserve our country. We ought to consult our conscience, he advised.
He thinks that although politicians are aware of the solution to Ghana’s economic woes, they have chosen to ignore it and focus on cosmetic solutions rather than telling the people of Ghana the truth.
He lamented the frequency with which people cheat their way to the top and challenged the Vice President to tell Ghanaians the truth.
