Organized Labour in Ghana protests dwindling economy nationwide

Image
A nationwide protest is currently underway in Ghana by Organized Labour to unleash their frustrations at government's seemingly unconcerned and lackadaisical attitude towards the gross hardship the country is facing. Living conditions have grown from bad to worse since the beginning of the year with no sign of a possible solution in sight.

The one-day civil unrest is going on simultaneously in all ten (10) regions in the country, involving the formal and informal sector, the transport sector and market women. The rather fast pace at which the country's currency, the cedi (¢) is falling is appalling, resulting in the current hardship. Fuel prices, electricity and water tariffs have increased astronomically as government's policies on addressing these issues seem not to proffer any way out.

Am yet to join though.


Shalom!
