Professor Lord Mensah, a senior lecturer at the University of Ghana Business School (UGBS), has criticized the government’s handling of the economy.

The UG lecturer in his critique highlighted the Cedi’s recent struggles against the US dollar.

Prof. Mensah took to X formally known as Twitter on May 14, 2024, to express his concerns about the country’s economic trajectory.

He noted that the Cedi’s depreciation directly responds to underlying economic issues that the government has obscured.

“The Cedi is now responding to the hidden picture of our economic mismanagement. Too much hope in the dollar now. When you continue to lie about the economy, the exchange rate will expose you,” Prof. Mensah tweeted.
