The President of the Republic of Ghana, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, has assured the general public that the New Patriotic Party (NPP) government will work to revive and revitalize the economy.
He reiterated that the NPP government will work assiduously to put the nation back on the path of rapid economic growth.
Addressing senior citizens at the Accra International Conference Centre (AICC), at the Founders’ Day luncheon in honour of senior citizens, on Thursday 4 August 2022, Akufo Addo mentioned that since the attainment of independence 65 years ago, we have bemoaned the fact that our nation has not leaved up to its vast potential.
“Since the attainment of independence 65 years ago, we have bemoaned the fact that our nation has not leaved up to its vast potential and countries, especially those in south east Asia such as Korea and Malaysia which gained their independence at the same time as we did have outstripped us in terms of development,” he said.
Mr Akufo-Addo added “In spite of the many obstacles that we have had to surmount including prolong periods of instability and military rule, fueled by several coup d’états, one thing I continue to be proud of is the can do spirit of the Ghanaian and out determination not to be backed down by events and allow the circumstances and challenges of today to shape our collective future.
“I am confident that we will revive and revitalize the economy and put our nation back on the path of rapid economic growth, a scenario we had become accustom to in the last three immediate years before the pandemic struck” Akufo-Addo said.
“This is a solemn pledge I am making to you. I remain resolutely optimistic about Ghana’s future which I continue to believe is bright” he said.
