The Ghana Statistical Service (GSS) has been challenged to reconcile its figures with the realities on the ground.

An Economist, Dr. Joe Abbey, said the seeming doubt about the services’ independence from political influence will be cleared if it explains to Ghanaians how its figures reflect the real situation. 

Dr. Abbey was commenting on the lecture by the NPP running mate Dr. Bawumia, which cast doubts over the figures on the economy put out by the statistical service.

He said: “It is now up to the Statistical Service to accept that there are registration challenges and they cannot be silent over the questions that have been raised.” 

He added that the interpretation of data should be left to the Statistical Service and not politicians who are likely to skew it.
