Ghana: President assures better economic circumstances

ACCRA – The Ghanaian President Nana Akufo-Addo late Tuesday assured that under his leadership Ghana will back on the path of progress and prosperity.

Addressing representatives of chiefs and traditional rulers at the seat of government in Accra, Akufo-Addo said very soon the difficulties in the country’s economic circumstances are going to be a thing of the past.

He said steps will be taken very soon, in his address to the nation, and in the first budget, to let Ghanaians know that the commitments the governing party made in order to get their mandate were not just hollow words, and that there was every intention to live by those commitments.

“Those commitments, in our vision, are the way forward for the progress and prosperity of our country,” he said when the standing committee of the National House of Chiefs paid a courtesy call on him at the presidency.

In his response to remarks made by the President of the House of Chiefs, Togbe Afede XIV, President Akufo-Addo noted that the “business” of political leaders is to capture the spirit of the time and make policy for the furtherance of the interest of the people.

“I want to assure you, and through you to all the Chiefs of our country, that to the extent that I have control over those I am working with, that is going to be the situation,” he said.

Togbe Afede called on all Ghanaians to lend their support to the government for the prosperity of the country.

“There is no room for apathetic spectating,” he said.
