Ghanaian gospel artist, Diana Asamoah, has indicated that even the divine intervention of Jesus would not be sufficient to improve the state of Ghanaian economy.
Speaking to the media, she attributed the challenges faced by the country to the presence of individuals who lack honesty and integrity.
While acknowledging the significant impact of political leadership on people’s everyday lives, the gospel musician added that leaders should not bear sole responsibility for the actions of the populace, emphasizing the pivotal role of individual attitudes.
In her view, the world at large is grappling with adversity, and she attributed a substantial portion of these challenges to human actions, highlighting the need for collective responsibility.
“The whole world is in a crisis, and a significant portion of the hardships is also a consequence of our actions. I have always said that even if Jesus were to become President of Ghana and we don’t change our attitudes, we will not thrive” she stated.
She placed strong emphasis on the virtues of honesty and patience, drawing from biblical principles that highlight blessings for those who uphold truthfulness.
The state of the economy has become a central topic of discussion in recent months, marked by soaring inflation rates, currency devaluation, a decline in overall living standards, and an increasing cost of living.
Government attributes these challenges to the lingering effects of the COVID-19 pandemic and the ongoing Russia-Ukraine conflict.
To address these economic issues, the country has secured a substantial US$3 billion IMF loan, with US$600 million of this amount already credited to the government’s account.
In the meantime, the musician’s remarks have sparked intense debates on social media. Some are questioning the rationale behind her assertions, while others are firmly supporting her perspective.
