After attempting to make a purchase, Ghanaian-American Hollywood star Michael Blackson lamented the soaring pricing of several products on the market.
The comedian added that he was’shocked’ by the rates mentioned for furniture and appliances in a post on his social media profile expressing his dissatisfaction.
According to him, the price was more than double what he would have paid in the United States of America (USA).
“Why are things so stinking costly in Ghana?”
“I recently tried to buy furniture and appliances, and they are more than twice the price of what I paid in the US,” Michael Blankson tweeted.
The government has continuously blamed the economic downturn on Covid-19 and the Russia-Ukraine war.
Inflation in the country has also reached an all-time high in nearly 18 years.
According to recent Ghana Statistical Service figures, the May inflation rate was 27.6 percent, with food and transportation costs being the primary drivers.
