WATCH: Ghana’s economic hardship is normal – James Gardiner

Actor, James Gardiner, has tasked Ghanaians to follow the steps of ants by saving up for tougher times.

According to the actor, economic hardship is a normal phenomenon that happens to countries globally although he says “it’s not an interesting place to be.”

“I think it’s everywhere. Just like the ants, you stock up for dry days. The days that you don’t have it in abundance, you go to your reserve,” he told JoyNews’ Doreen Avio.

His comment comes after several agitations among Ghanaians regarding the increase in tariffs and the implementation of the Communications Service Tax.

The Public Utilities Regulatory Commission (PURC) recently announced 5.94% and 2.22% increment in electricity and water tariffs, respectively. Communications Service Tax which was previously set for 6%, has also been raised to 9%. All took effect from October 1.

James Gardiner said that people have to be smart especially in times of these economic hardships.

He advise people to “try and not put all your eggs into one basket, because when you do that you tend to fail, rather than succeed.”

James Gardiner added that although he does not have the facts on why the government is making some of the decisions on tariffs, he believes it is up to it to make the living conditions better for the people.

“They are in the driving seats as it stands now, so, I think that’s why everyone would sort of rightfully point accusing fingers at them,” he said.
