Dr Smart Sarpong ,Senior Lecturer and a Senior Research Fellow of the Kumasi Technical University’s Institute of Research, Innovation and Development has compared the current economic hardship to that of the 1983, the most popular hardship era in the history of Ghana.
He said the current hardship is not the same as that of 83 but is getting close to.
However, he refuted that ,the Ghana Armed Forces has no intention of embarking on a coup de tat as some people have begun to expect such an action.
He said, some traders has also taken advantage of the current hardship to decide their own prices to sell goods at higher cost which is worsening the situation.
He made this in an interview with Sir Mike on the Asanteman Dawuro Morning Show earlier today.
Commenting on the lecture of the former President John Dramani Mahama yesterday, Dr Smart Sarpong said, aside the political aspect of the lecture, it was a fine presentation by the NDC and the figures, projection and solutions they made should be considered by the government.
