President Akufo-Addo will be addressing the nation this evening at 8.00pm.

His address is expected to announce measures by government to resolve the economic challenges facing Ghanaians.

The President put out this announcement on his Facebook page on Thursday.

The address by the President comes in the wake of recent public agitations about the ailing state of the economy.

At the moment, Ghana’s economy is reeling under pressure; a situation which has led to an increase in the cost of living as well as what some have described as a ‘galloping inflation’.

The country’s local currency is also battling a fluctuation against the US dollar and other major trading currencies across the globe.

The address will be telecast on “GTV and on major television networks across the country”, the post said.

However, ahead of the address, some Ghanaians have laid before the President some expectations.

Among others, the President has been urged to be conciliatory as well as transparent about the current state of the economy in his address.

He is also being advised to cut back on spending and ensure that government ministers travel on economy class tickets for the next three years that the country will be under IMF supervision, and that the President refrain from using private aircraft for foreign trips.

Meanwhile, social media users have reacted in equal measure to the President’s post.
