From current happenings, you need no seer to tell you the country is heading in a wrong direction.
In a time of hourly inflation, just bear in mind the price of a good today, is only its price today. Tomorrow certainly has it’s own price.
Just this, smacks of a country heading in a wrong direction.
77 percent of Ghanaians believe the country is headed in the wrong direction according to a survey conducted by Global Info Analytics.
Interestingly, the survey found that 16% of Ghanaians thought their nation was moving in the right direction.
Seven percent of those surveyed had no view on where the nation was going.
The survey’s findings were based on data from a sample size of 5,661.
Based on the total number of voters in each region as reported in the EC 2020 register, the sample size was distributed among all the regions.
The government is currently requesting assistance from the International Monetary Fund (IMF) to keep the economy afloat since the nation is currently experiencing a cost-of-living problem.
Every economic indicator of the country does not paint a pleasant picture.
