President Nana Akufo-Addo says he is determined to lay a strong foundation for the progress of the country by the end of his first term.

Addressing Parliament on Thursday, February 21 on his third State of the Nation address, the President said his administration’s focus is not about winning the next election but rather, for the generation unborn.

He said, “I am bent on running a responsible administration mindful of the next generation and not the next election.” 

On the economy, President Akufo-Addo acknowledged that the government’s efforts at ensuring fiscal discipline “is bearing some fruits.”

The debt to GDP ratio he noted, has declined while inflation has also dropped.

“We will maintain the discipline and bring progress to our country,” he assured, indicating that the government’s main focus is to ensure a sound economic fundamental to speed up growth.
