Actress, Lydia Forson, has talked about how hardship is treating the citizens of Ghana.
She stated in a tweet that the majority of people in the country are depressed.
According to her, depression is caused by hardship.
“When you think about how hard things are in this country, it can easily send you into depression. In fact I’m almost certain a majority of us are battling depression; we just force ourselves through it each day. Worse is that we’re being led by people who don’t care,” Lydia wrote.
The outspoken actress added that the Ghanaian authorities do not care about what the people are going through—as they are imposing more taxes on them.
“A lot of people are unemployed, those who aren’t, barely make enough to survive each month. Between transportation, accommodation and food, you barely have enough for anything else. But your leaders believe, let’s TAX them some more,” Lydia Forson said in another tweet.
A few days ago, the Finance Minister, Ken Ofori-Atta, announced the increment of Value Added Tax (VAT) to 2.5 percent.
