Rent is More Expensive in Canada than in Ghana, So be Grateful” – Hawa Koomson Tells Ghanaians 

Mavis Hawa Koomson, the Minister for Fisheries and Aquaculture, has encouraged Ghanaians to appreciate the relatively lower cost of living in Ghana compared to other countries, citing her recent visit to Canada.

In an interview on Onua FM’s morning show, Yɛn Nsɛmpa, Koomson highlighted the high cost of rent in Canada, noting that even a single room could cost over 2,000 Canadian dollars per month, significantly higher than in Ghana.

“People have been complaining that rent is expensive in Ghana. They should go to Canada. For a month, you pay over 2,000 Canadian dollars. That’s for a single room, not even a chamber and hall,” she stated in Twi.

Koomson acknowledged the global crisis affecting the cost of living but emphasized that Ghana remains comparatively affordable, attributing this to the government’s efforts. She urged Ghanaians to be content with the situation in the country, stating, “Things are hard now, and there is a high cost of living everywhere, and when you compare Ghana to other countries, Ghana is doing far better.”

Responding to criticisms that living conditions in Canada surpassed those in Ghana, Koomson disputed the notion, asserting that the cost of living in Canada isn’t necessarily better.

The minister also urged individuals who consumed fishes washed ashore to own up, emphasizing the health risks associated with such actions.
