Former President Jerry John Rawlings says Ghanaians are going through very hard times.

According to Mr. Rawlings, the situation is profound hence there is a need for all to extend a helping hand to those who are in need.

“We all know how hard things are in Ghana right now,” he admits. “Times are really hard and during critical moments such as this funeral, the expenses family incurs is a not a joke.

“Things are not going too well for a lot of people. So I am pleading with all of you, the way things are, we have no choice but to help one another.”

Rawlings who had joined other personalities for the funeral of Nana Ama Obu Derby-Michaelis, mother of Vice President of the Ship Owners and Agents Association of Ghana (SOAAG), Adam Imoru Ayarna further indicated that things are tough not only for the ordinary Ghanaian but also the rich and famous as he is unable to offer a resounding support to the bereaved.

“It’s not easy for me. I wish I could support,” he noted.

We’re not in crisis; but Ghanaians are in difficulty – Akufo-Addo

In September last year, President Akufo-Addo admitted that the average Ghanaian was in difficulty but rejected claims the country was at a crisis point.

The President while delivering a speech at a Ghanaian community in New York, USA attributed the “difficulties” in the system to the “dramatic increase in crude oil prices” and the strengthening of the US dollar.

He said: “It is not a crisis, but the difficulties that we are going through now are difficulties that the system will be able to accommodate. It has meant some difficulties in the lives of ordinary people in Ghana, but they are events that were out of our control, which we have to find a way to accommodate.

“We have to approach the foreign exchange matter medium to long-term, by expanding our supply base, that’s not a crisis…they’re difficulties the system would be able to accommodate…”
