I didn't paint glossy picture of economy - Akufo-Addo reacts to question

The President at the Presidential Media Encounter on Wednesday vehemently denied suggestions that he painted an unrealistic picture of the economy.

Ebo Quansah of The Chronicle newspaper had preceded his question to the President during the Q&A session with a remark that the Nana Akufo-Addo painted a glossy picture of the economy, suggesting the situation on the ground did not reflect that.

Mr Quansah had wanted to know why the impressive GDP and inflation figures did not translate into better living conditions for the ordinary Ghanaian.

However, in a reply, the President said the claim that he has painted a glossy picture is inaccurate and urged the Journalist to speak to the figures he has put out.

Listen to the encounter in the audio below. The first voice is that of Ebo Quansah. The President’s reaction follows immediately after.
