In 2016, the President of the Republic of Ghana, Nana Akufo-Addo who was then the opposition leader of the NEW Patriotic Party (NPP) expressed shock at the depreciation of the Ghana cedis against the US dollar.
He observed that the Ghana cedi which was then 3.72 against a dollar in May 4, 2016 should be rising that fast, adding that “we should not be where we are today to buy dollar for 3.72”.
The then flagbearer of the NPP stated that the depreciation of the Ghana cedi against the dollar was as a result of bad leadership and advised citizens to vote for “change”, the New Patriotic Party (NPP).
He questioned the competence of the Mahama administration which was in power then.
