Ghanaian actress, Lydia Forson has expressed concern over the government’s decision to raise taxes at a time when many are suffering from poverty due to high inflation.
According to Lydia, times are hard, and several Ghanaians are battling depression due to the bad economy coupled with the high cost of living.
“When you think about how hard things are in this country, it can easily send you into depression. In fact I’m almost certain a majority of us are battling depression; we just force ourselves through it each day. Worse is that we’re being led by people who don’t care,” she tweeted.
In a separate post that also highlighted the plight of Ghanaians, the actress who has been vocal about issues that affect citizens listed a number of things that continue to drain the pocket of many.
“A lot of people are unemployed, those who aren’t, barely make enough to survive each month. Between transportation, accommodation and food, you barely have enough for anything else. But your leaders believe, let’s TAX them some more,” she said.
