President Nana Akufo-Addo hailed Ghanaians for their courage in the face of adversity.
The President of Ghana, Nana Akufo-Addo, remarked on Thursday at a ceremony commemorating Founders’ Day, “I am proud of Ghanaians’ can-do spirit.”
Despite the fact that Ghanaians confront lots of issues, he believes they are committed “not to be bucked down by circumstances and let the circumstances and challenges of today to shape our collective future.”
He cited some of the challenges as prolonged periods of instability and military rule fueled by several coup de tats and Covid-19.
“Since the attainment of Independence 65 years ago, we have bemoaned the fact that our nation has not lived up to its vast potential. In countries such as those in South East Asia that is Korea and Malaysia which gained their Independence around the same time as we did, but have outstripped us in terms of development. In spite of the many obstacles we had to surmount, he said.
According to him, even though Covid-19 had a massive hit on the economy, it worsened due to the Russia and Ukraine war. However, “government has outlined a series of measures including seeking the assistance of the International Monetary Fund in the short term to help repair our finances.”
President Akufo-Addo assured that “we will revive and revitalize the nation back on the path of economic growth.”
