‘You spend frivolously and expect Ghanaians to pay for it’ – Lydia Forson blasts Gabby Asare Okyere Darko over E-levy failure

Actress Lydia Forson has told a member of the NPP government, Gabby Asare Okyere Darko that the people had lost faith in the government because of their handling of the country’s issues since they came to power.

It’s obvious that there is enormous hardship in the current Ghanaian economy and Lydia Forson believes the government has not handled the economic situation very well.

The Electronic taxing on mobile money transfers popularly referred to as E-levy isn’t bringing in as much money as the government had expected, according to Gabby Asare Otchere-Darko [ unofficial prime minister of Ghana].

Gabby in a tweet revealed the debt levels in the United States have increased and so is Ghana — stating that the E-levy which was introduced to salvage the economic crisis of Ghana is only bringing in 10% of the predicted revenue.

The administration, according to Otchere-Darko, has to do more to boost investor confidence in the nation.

In response to Gabby Asare Otchere Darko’s tweet, Lydia Forson said the administration has lost the people’s confidence in the goodwill with which they were voted into power.

She stated that if the government had listened to the people of Ghana and not taken them for granted, it would have had their support in taking the necessary steps to guarantee that the economy recovered.

“You underestimated Ghanaians yet again. If this were a listening & honest government many people would contribute to help save our economy. But we don’t trust you and that’s the problem! You can’t say we’re broke, yet spend frivolously and expect us to pay for this,” she said in a tweet.

Adding that “My fear is that our country is really broke, and until something is done immediately things are about to get even worse. But we don’t trust our leaders due to how they continue to spend our money; so solution they may have to save our economy will be met with resistance”.
