Business tycoon and financial analyst, Mr. Daniel Okyem Aboagye is now a happy person after the President, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo addressed the nation amidst economic hardship facing Ghanaians.

According to the Chief Executive Officer of 2M Express, a transport business company, after listening to the president he can now heave a sigh of relief as his transport business was on the verge of collapsing.

"The President's speech has now brought us hope. The President just spoke to truth and the assurance he gave is welcoming news for us as Ghanaians," the former Government Spokesperson for Finance stated.

The politician cum businessman also backed President Akufo-Addo's 'sika mpɛ dede' comment saying, "'Yes! 'Sika mpɛ dede.' The President said it right. If we begin to talk positively about our economy, things will normalize. No investor is ready to put his or her money in an ailing economy. So let's stop painting a bad picture about Ghana."

Speaking to Kumasi-based Nhyira FM, Hon. Daniel Okyem Aboagye appealed to Ghanaians to show their patriotism for the country despite the economic challenges.

President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo spoke extensively about the depreciation of the Ghana cedi while charging the populace to avoid speculation.

"Fellow Ghanaians, as the French would say, l’argent n’aime pas le bruit, to wit, money does not like noise, sika mpɛ dede. Where there is chaos, where there is noise, where there is unrest, you will not find money.

"If you talk down your money, it will go down. If you allow some unidentifiable person to talk down your money, it will go down," he stressed.
