The policies and programmes that the government has instituted over the last 21 months indicate that Ghana’s destiny “is in safe hands”, President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has said.
He said the time in the office of his administration, had been inspiring and has impacted positively on the life of every Ghanaian and in every part of the country.
“We have shown, over the last 21 months that the destiny of Ghana is safe in our hands. We have proven, by all accounts, to be good managers of the Ghanaian economy, and we have made significant progress in all aspects of our nation’s life.”
The President said this when speaking at the 2018 capacity building conference held by the Ministry of Local Government and Rural Development for Metropolitan, Municipal and District Chief Executives (MMDCE’s) at the Institute of Local Government Service at Ogbojo, Madina, near Accra.
“Whether it is in the economy, where we have increased the GDP growth rate from 3.6% in 2016 to 8.5% in 2017, and have engineered a decline in inflation and interest rates; or in education, where we have implemented the Free Senior High School policy, which has enabled 270,000 more Ghanaian youths to access Senior High School, than they otherwise would have done,” the President said.
