President of the Ghana Catholic Bishop’s Conference, Most Rev. Philip Naameh has lamented the rising cost of living in the country.

The Archbishop says though Ghanaians are wallowing in poverty, persons with power appear unconcerned.

Speaking on the theme of good governance at the opening of the 2021 Plenary Assembly of the Ghana Catholic Bishops’ Conference at the St. Andrew Cathedral in Wa earlier today, Archbishop Naameh noted that there are concerns about good governance generally and especially in the management of public resources for the common good in Ghana.

According to him, ”perceived corruption and corruptible practices by politicians and other politically exposed persons are taking a toll on the national economy and making the poverty situation to grow more dismal and progressively. Poverty is grinding down millions of people all over the country.”

“Prices of essentials are rising daily. People seem to struggle to keep families and lives together. Though poverty stirs us in the face, it appears lost to those with power,” the Archbishop said.
