Ghana is experiencing a deep economic crisis, with rampant inflation that has reached almost 40% and its currency.
The government blamed the COVID-19 pandemic and the war in Russia and Ukraine as some of the drivers of the economic crisis, but analysts think that the poor performance of the country to help investors to make business is also a factor to consider.
An economist with the University of Ghana Business School (UGBS), Prof. Godfred Alufar Bokpin earlier said Ghana risks an economic collapse.
He stated that as the country’s debt stock hits high distress levels, the current debt situation could get worse if proper interventions are not implemented.
