President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo says his government’s first budget, scheduled to be presented to the nation on March 2, would detail the measures to revive the ailing Ghanaian economy.
He said he would strengthen the cedi, create jobs for the teeming unemployed youth, and ease challenges on private businesses to be competitive in the country.
Speaking to the Ghanaian Community in Banjul, The Gambia Saturday, the President reiterated his belief in the private sector to drive the creation of wealth and jobs.
“It is only when the private sector flourishes that we can create the high numbers of jobs required by the teeming masses of Ghanaian youth. When the private sector flourishes, then we will be on the sure path towards progress and prosperity for all Ghanaians,” he said.
President Akufo-Addo was in Banjul to witness the official investiture of the new President Adama Barrow whose presidency had initially been challenged by former President Yahya Jammeh.
