I’m Proud Of The ‘Can Do Spirit’ Of Ghanaians; Economy Will Bounce Back – Akufo-Addo
President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has assured the people of Ghana that his government will work to revive and revitalize the economy.
This, he said, would put the nation back on the path of rapid economic growth.
Mr. Akufo-Addo said these while addressing senior citizens at the Accra International Conference Centre (AICC), at the Founders’ Day luncheon in honor of senior citizens, on Thursday 4 August 2022.
“Since the attainment of independence 65 years ago, we have bemoaned the fact that our nation has not left up to its vast potential and countries, especially those in southeast 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 prolonged 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 our 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 accustomed 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 stressed.
