According to Bernard Allotey Jacobs, a former Central Regional Chairman of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Ghana is the best-performing Anglophone nation despite the economic crisis.
He claims that the “miracle” of Ghana’s difficult economic times is the payment of salary to employees to cover their essential requirements.
“I’ll agree with the EIU report that yes the economy is not the best
But the miracle in our worst economy is that our workers are always receiving their salary as compared to Nigeria and other Anglophone countries.
“The miracle in this worst economy is that today everyone eats thrice daily
Nobody in this country will tell me that he or she does not eat.”
On Accra-based Peace FM, Mr. Jacobs stated that “in times of difficulty, we need a very thinking leadership that can help cushion prices, which is why I’m in support of the God for Oil policy.”
