UK also experiencing economic challenges – Kwaku Bimpeh to Ghanaians

Ghanaians have been urged to exercise more patience for the Akufo-Addo led government on the current economic woes as it is a global pandemic and must be seen so.

On ‘Delivering On Our Promises’ political show hosted on Homebase TV, Mr. Kwaku Bimpeh who is a professional resident worker in the United Kingdom explained how the current global economic crises has had a toll on the living standards of people in Europe.

Speaking to the host, Ohene Amoako (The Flag bearer) via a video call, Mr. Bimpeh revealed that bin collectors have gone on suspension over poor conditions of service.

He indicated that Europe is currently going through energy crises as utility tariffs have been increased as much as 80% in most cases, making it difficult for citizens to cope with the situation.

“My brother, we are all experiencing this economic hardship in UK here. I now pay 1,300 pounds for electricity yearly instead of the 600 pounds before this global crisis. Water, gas and even water prices have escalated. And the most annoying thing is that sizes of foodstuffs and other items including food have been reduced at the same cost because cost of production has also increased,” Mr. Kwaku Bimpeh stated.

He, therefore, called on Ghanaians to appreciate the efforts of government in dealing with the crises since Ghana is not an exception.

The Host of the program had earlier made many interesting revelations about the state of some economies, taking Nigeria as an example.

He stated that, the Nigerian naira has become the weakest currency as compared to the Ghanaian cedis which is still making relevance in business.

He stressed that due to the poor performance of the naira, Emirates Airlines has suspended its operations to the West African giant nation just like United Airlines in 2016.

He however, appealed to Ghanaians to support the Akufo-Addo administration restore the economy.
