President of policy think tank, IMANI Africa, Franklin Cudjoe is pleading with public sector workers to be considerate with government when their salaries delay.

According to him, Ghana isn’t the only country feeling the impact of the pandemic because even stronger economies are gradually collapsing.

Comparing the impact of the novel coronavirus on countries across the globe, the IMANI Africa boss said about 30 million Americans have lost their jobs, pushing America’s economy into distress.

He indicated that the heat is being felt everywhere so Ghanaians must understand the current situation and not complain much because government will definitely find a way to resolve their problem.

Pleading with all public sector workers to bear with government, he said “30 million Americans have now been rendered unemployed. The American economy and indeed the global econony is in distress. Which is why I plead with all public sector workers in Ghana demanding their unpaid legacy allowances to have compassion for the government as things are not easy.”

Franklin Cudjoe has meanwhile cautioned government officials to stop boasting about the ‘resilient’ nature of the country’s economy adding that the claim may not be entirely accurate.

His comment comes after some government officials reportedly touted the resilience of Ghana’s economy to withstand the shocks by the coronavirus pandemic.

According to Franklin Cudjoe, though it’s good for government officials to give hope to Ghanaians, misrepresenting facts to suggest a rather robust economy capable of withstanding such shocks may not be the way to go.

“Some government functionaries too, while we are pleading on your behalf, please desist from bragging that all is fine. I didn’t understand my brother, Oppong Nkrumah’s recent assurance that the economy was so robust, it can withstand the raging COVID-inspired storms. Giving hope is fine, but unfounded optimism is unwise,” he said.
