The Chief Executive Officer of Ghana Chamber Of Bulk Oil Distributors; Senyo Hosi says government should set an example to citizens to follow.
He’s therefore asking the government to cut its extravagant spending to indeed show that our economy is in wreckage.
While speaking on Newsfile on Saturday, he stated that the government must fulfil it’s part of the bargain by not journeying on expensive trips and engaging in flamboyant lifestyle.
Earlier, the finance minister had pleaded with Ghanaians to share in the burden the country is facing while presenting the 2022 budget to parliament.
“It is easy for everybody to talk about labour having to sacrifice. What is our government doing? I don’t think that our governments show the way appropriately.
“We have to let people realize that while we claim that things are difficult, we are living lives that show things are difficult. You can’t claim that things are difficult and travels are what we see them to be. You can’t claim things are difficult and we are seeing our politicians buying new SUVs and trying to show who has the latest V8.
“We can’t talk about things being broke and not talk about rationalizing the size of government. Government is too big. It is as simple as that. Show something and get labour to really come along,” he said.
