The Director of Business Operations of Dalex Finance, Mr. Joe Jackson, says the Finance Minister’s press conference on Sunday, May 9, 2021, failed to address the real concerns of Ghanaians.
Speaking on The Point of View on Citi TV monitored by Daily News Ghana, Mr. Joe Jackson said the current anger of the people cannot be addressed by press conferences but by real actions.
“Trumpeting your achievements does not fix my pocket and here when I talk about my pocket, I’m talking about those public sentiments that are being expressed, and the dissatisfaction in the level of unemployment with the public services, the dumsor, the roads, and the issues to do with education, security, health services, and housing which is making people unhappy and the perception of the increasing levels of corruption.”
“So telling somebody who says there is corruption, telling him about 1D1F, telling him about Planting for Food and Jobs and the others and however deep-rooted these may be in truth does not solve his or her problem.”
The Finance Minister at a press conference over the weekend listed government’s intervention and intended initiatives towards fixing the economy.
This follows ongoing public agitations over the high cost of living and other related challenges.
But according to Mr. Joe Jackson, Mr. Ken Ofori-Atta only rehashed the government’s undertakings over the period which falls short of ameliorating the economic hardship.
