Ghana’s President, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, has hinted at the measures being put in place to revitalize the economy.
Delivering an address at the 2021 Independence Day celebration which was held virtually at the forecourt of the Jubilee house due to COVID-19, President Akufo-Addo assured Ghanaians that the quest to move Ghana to a situation beyond aid will be accelerated a year from now.
“Ghana is taking steps to revitalise the economy. A process that is hinged on the GHS 1 billion Ghana Cares Obatanpa programme. This is aimed at transforming our economy, which is our main national priority.
“The Minister for Finance will within the month, provide further details on measures to be taken to spiral the process of economic recovery,” he stated.
“The benefits of this economic recovery agenda will begin to show a year from now. A year from now, our quest to move Ghana to a situation beyond aid will be accelerated, and our self-reliance enhanced. A year from today, Ghana will become one of the fastest-growing economies not only in the continent but the world at large.
“A year from now, we will begin processing our raw materials and effects more jobs will be created for the millions of Ghanaian youths. Fellow Ghanaians, this is not beyond us. If we put our mind to it, we, who were the first to gain independence, can make it,” President Akufo-Addo further stated.
