President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, has high hopes for a greater recovery of Ghana’s economy.
Akufo Addo asserted that his administration’s projects and strategies would bring the nation back to progress and prosperity despite the current economic problems that have put the country’s budget in jeopardy.
Speaking on Thursday at the Founders’ Day Luncheon for senior people in Accra, the President expressed his confidence that Ghanaians’ positive outlook will assist to reverse the nation’s economic woes.
Since our country gained independence 65 years ago, we have bemoaned the fact that it hasn’t achieved its enormous potential and that other countries, particularly those in southeast Asia like Korea and Malaysia, have grown faster than us.
“Despite the many obstacles we have had to surmount, including prolonged periods of instability and military rule, fuelled by several coup d’états, I continue to be proud of the can-do spirit of the Ghanaian and our determination not to be backed down by events and allow the circumstances and challenges of today to shape our collective future,” he said.
“I’m convinced we’ll resuscitate and rebuild the economy and put our country back on a path of strong economic development like we had in the three years before the epidemic.
“This is a serious promise. “I’m enthusiastic about Ghana’s future,” he said.
