Former National Communications Director of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Yaw Adomako Baafi says Ghana is not as ‘hard’ as the opposition NDC is purporting.

He was emphatic that “there is no hardship in Ghana” – after praising the Nana Addo-led government style of governance to change things for good.

His comment comes after some members of the opposition party said Ghanaians may experience severe hardship akin to that which occurred in 1983, if government continues with the current path it has taken in its management of the economy.

But Adomako Baafi argued that the introduction of some government policies is rather making things easier for the average Ghanaian.

He mentioned the ‘Free SHS’ and the “double track system’ as a “burden reliever” on parents who could not afford their wards tuition fee in John Mahama’s era as President.

“Today, the poor woman in the village who could not afford school fees for her children is happy because of free SHS. Today those in the village are gaining admission to some brilliant schools in the cities because of this double tracking system. Where is the hardship comparing to NDC’s era?” he questioned in an interview with NEAT FM’s morning show ‘Ghana Montie’.

Adomako Baafi also heaped praise on the government for solving the country’s energy crisis which led many companies collapsed under the NDC regime.

“Which hardship surpasses the 'Dumsor Dumsor' during the NDC time? Yes, things are a bit hard now but there’s no extreme hardship in Ghana as the NDC is saying,” he said. 

Commenting on the fuel price hike, he said “It is worrying but what would the NDC have done if they were to be in power? The situation of fuel hike is not controlled here. They messed up with the economy and that is the price we are paying now.”

He assured that the Nana Addo-led government is working around the clock to stabilize the economy.
