Kenkey and fish, bread and rice make it to the floor of parliament

Member of Parliament for the Kpando constituency, Della Adjoa Sowah, sheds light on the growing economic challenges facing Ghanaians, backed by tangible examples of daily food items.

Drawing a stark comparison between the Mahama and Akufo-Addo administrations, she highlighted the alarming surge in food prices under the current government.

Presenting samples of essential foods such as kenkey, bread, and a 50kg bag of rice, Sowah points out significant disparities in costs during the National Democratic Congress (NDC) era versus the New Patriotic Party (NPP) era.

According to her, the price hike is staggering, with a ball of kenkey skyrocketing from 1 Ghana cedi in the Mahama era to 5 Ghana cedis under Akufo-Addo’s leadership.

“A ball of Kenkey in the Mahama era was C1GH compared to Akufo-Addo’s C5GH, a loaf of bread C2GH compared to Akufo-Addo’s C20GH,” stated Della Adjoa Sowah, emphasizing the harsh impact on the daily lives of Ghanaians.

Expressing concern for the future, she asserts that the Akufo-Addo-led NPP government has let down the citizens, predicting further economic decline if the party retains power.

Sowah’s revelations in Parliament spotlight the pressing need for economic reforms to alleviate the burden on Ghanaians and ensure a prosperous future.
