The Ghana Catholic Bishops’ Conference (GCBC) is disappointed with the government’s inability to come to a resolution on the current economic crisis the country is experiencing.

The GCBC asserted that in light of the recent outcry from citizens and other relevant parties who have been impacted by these economic difficulties, it appeared the Ghanaian government had not identified a clear strategy to address these challenges and that alternatives available to government to address the economic crisis seemed to be few.

In a statement released and signed by the Most Rev. Matthew K. Gyamfi, President of the GCBC, the Conference said it had been monitoring recent developments in the country and was concerned that not enough had been done to avert the crisis.

“The Ghana Catholic Bishops Conference (GCBC) has been following with keen interest and concern, recent happenings in the country on the economic front and its impact on Ghanaians.

In the light of this, we are troubled that the position so far adopted by government lacks consensus, resulting in the strong reactions witnessed in the recent past.

The conference also urged the government to act quickly to address the economic problems that appear to be ruining the country’s business climate.

We, therefore, find it necessary to add our voices to calls on government to take steps to find solutions that are less burdensome on Ghanaians, and yet sustainable to get the country out of this economic quagmire.”
