Outspoken Ghanaian actress, Lydia Forson, has in her usual fashion, taken a swipe at the incumbent government over the hardships in the country.
During a series of tweets on Monday night, Lydia Forson shared her opinion on how difficult life is for people who want to do right in this country without cutting corners and it seemingly confirmed her next foray into the governance structure of the Akufo-Addo led administration will be her focus on the economy.
“This country is exceptionally HARD for anyone who wants to walk the right path!” Lydia Forson tweeted, sharing what appears to be a first-hand experience of the hardship in the country. She quickly began receiving positive responses from people after making the claim, with some saying corruption is not a problem of the economy anymore but rather what holds the economy among other things.
This country is exceptionally HARD for anyone who wants to walk the right path!
Even the best of us have had to cut unthinkable corners just to make ends meet.
Even if you don’t want to, it’s what you have to in a lot of cases. Mabr3— miss forson (@lydiaforson) April 5, 2021

Lydia Forson has arguably been one of the biggest critics of the past administration and she doesn’t look like backing down on her stance when it comes to criticizing the incumbent government for the gross disappointment it has shown Ghanaians.
According to her, although she is privileged to have had connections and yet life is still hard for her, she finds difficulty sleeping knowing very well there’s so much suffering in the country because it will be “10 times worse for others.”
Arguing, she noted that if actions aren’t taken to curb the severeness of hardships in this country, the next generation may go through worse. “Ghana is NOT moving forward,” Lydia wrote, as she indicated that if the majority of people can’t have access to basic amenities then the country isn’t developed amidst the flashy restaurants and buildings in the country.

I recognize my privilege and the doors and connections it opens for me.— miss forson (@lydiaforson) April 5, 2021
I know that if with all these privileges life can still be hard for me, then it’s 10 times worse for others.
And I just don’t know how to sleep comfortably at night with so many suffering.
Ghana is NOT moving forward.— miss forson (@lydiaforson) April 5, 2021
All the flashy buildings, restaurants etc serve only a select few.
It’s not development if a majority of the people can have access to the most BASIC amenities.
