President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo on Thursday February 8, 2018, assured the nation that the government’s programme to turn Ghana’s ailing economy had in just its first year made significant turnarounds. He said fiscal management of the nation’s resources had in the past year reduced borrowing and the settlement by almost half of its debts.
Looking ahead, he said the Senior High School for free programme would be for the welfare and progress for the whole nation. Going through the efforts being made in the various sectors of the economy especially, health, sanitation, potable water, national security and the ‘Galamsey’ menace that had degraded the country’s land and water bodies, the President was emphatic that no stones would be left unturned to find solutions to them.
“Sanitation being a daunting task since it has become a countrywide challenge, would be dealt with as government has allocated 800 million Ghana Cedis to the programme. Unemployment is being tackled as several thousands of young servicemen were employed last year and more jobs will also be created this year,” the President stated.
He ended by assuring all Ghanaians that the welfare of all today and that of all in the future is at the heart of his programme.
He complimented the past three presidents – the presidential Johns, their Excellencies Rawlings., Kufuor and Mahama as well as Vice Amissah Arthur and their spouses and Vice President Bawumia and his wife for their continuous interest in national affairs by appearing in person to grace the occasion.
