The state of the economy is in the pocket

In response to Dr Oko Boye’s Mr Opare Addo, a Lawyer by profession said his attire was his professional attire as a lawyer and not because the economy was good.

He indicated the state of the economy was in the pocket and his physical appearance had nothing to do with it.

According to him, the economy was bad and even members of the ruling  New Patriotic Party(NPP) can attest to that.
