Next month, the people of Ghana will vote in presidential and parliamentary elections against a backdrop of rising inflation and economic uncertainty. President John Dramani Mahama - who took power in 2012 - is looking to win a second term, though if he succeeds he'll face a series of uphill challenges. Second quarter GDP fell to 2.5% after a first quarter surge of 4.8%, while 30% of government revenue is paying off external debts, which according to anti-poverty groups is worsening Ghana's already fragile situation.
Share Radio's Juliette Foster was joined in the studio by Tim Jones, Senior Policy and Campaigns Officer for the Jubilee Debt Campaign, and Professor John Weeks, Share Radio's regular economics commentator.
