Next year will be good – Nana Addo assures Ghanaians
President Akufo-Addo believes his government is on course to move Ghana into the next stage of development in 2019. According to him, the New Patriotic Party (NPP) administration has so far laid a strong foundation, adding that next year promises to be good.
The President made the statement in a pre-recorded Christmas message released by the Jubilee House on Monday.
He urged Ghanaians to join hands with his government to build the progressive nation that all citizens desire.
“Next year promises to be a good one. I encourage you to join hands with my government in building a progressive and prosperous Ghana we all want,” Nana Addo said.
The President further touted the achievements of the NPP government in the last 23 months, but admitted that there is still more to be done.
“Our achievements in office so far, even though modest, have been appreciable and visible for all to see,” he said, adding that his government has worked hard to create a “much stronger economy” which has been demonstrated by reduced inflation and fiscal deficits.
President Akufo-Addo wished all Ghanaians a Merry Christmas, stating that the government will continue to support farmers in a bid to reduce imports into the country.
“And we have seen this year, a bumper harvest which has brought food prices down a lot as a result of my government strategic support for farmers under the programme, planting for food and jobs. Our country now found itself in a situation where it is now exporting food to its neighbours instead of importing food,” he said.
