Economy worse than we thought – Akufo-Addo


Economy worse than we thought.


Barely three weeks after taking over the reins of
government, President Akufo-Addo has revealed a
grim picture of the country’s economy saying it is
in deeper crises than the New Patriotic Party (NPP)
government thought.
According to him, the erstwhile Mahama
administration left a very weakened economy
which poses a lot of challenges to his
administration.
Speaking to journalists at the Flagstaff House as
he introduced his regional ministers on Tuesday
[January 24], Akufo-Addo said he is confident of
leading a total transformation of the country with
his government in spite of the challenge.
“We inherited an economy in poor shape. From
what I am hearing and the evidence that is coming
to me that is in even poorer shape than we
anticipated.”
“I’m a firm believer and a statesman that when our
times are tough, the tough gets going. This is the
time that we have to show leadership and
commitment to our nation. I continue to be an
unrepentant optimist by the opportunities and
prospects of Ghana. We are especial people with a
special destiny and I am going to do everything
within my bones to make sure that, that destiny is
realised in the years ahead of us.”
‘My appointees the best for Ghana’
President AKufo-Addo has insisted that all his
ministerial nominees are the best for the country’s
development. He said he was confident the team
he has assembled as ministers of state and
regional ministers were going to deliver the best
government the country has ever had.
“The Ghanaian people are seeing the quality of the
people that I have proposed for national office.
There are those who made all kinds of noises
about the choices but day after day, they are
proven that they indeed have the quality and the
calibre that we need now to take our country up
and move it to the next state in the development
of our nation. I am confident that these people that
I have assembled are going to give us the best
government this country has ever had.”
‘Akufo-Addo names 10 regional minister-
nominees’
President Nana Akufo-Addo yesterday [Tuesday,
January 24] named ten persons to serve as
regional ministers, pending parliamentary approval.
The list includes Simon Osei-Mensah for the
Ashanti Region and Ishmael Ashittey for the
Greater Accra Region.
