President John Dramani Mahama has said tough decisions need to be taken if the economy is to get back on its feet.

"I am not wicked to take some of the decisions." The President said." Where I sit I see the issues that need to be dealt with and I swore an oath to the people of Ghana to do my job in the best interest of the people of Ghana and so I take those decisions."

President Mahama was responding to various complaints from Ghanaians that the economic hardship is becoming unbearable.

Ghanaians are faced with worsening energy crisis which is killing a lot of businesses. Many people have also lost their jobs as a result. There are also industrial actions in various sectors of the economy as well as the constant hikes in fuel prices.

The president said "If we don't do that, and we throw the economy out of sync again, we will come back to the same point and accuse government of mismanaging the economy. These are things that one has to do as a leader."

The President said Ghanaians are discerning and should believe the decisions are being taking in "their best interest."
