The President of the Republic, Nana Addo Dankwah Akufo-Addo has assured Ghanaians that his government will restore the economy to its thriving form.

The President said the current state of the economy is a temporary one.

Speaking at the NPP National Delegates Conference on Saturday, July 16, 2022, President Akufo-Addo said the New Patriotic Party has a tradition of reviving Ghana’s economy whenever there is a challenge.

“We took Ghana out of HIPC in President Kufuor’s time. We took Ghana out of the derailed IMF programme of 2015, our party was the one that made it possible for us to survive the Covid pandemic with one of the lowest mortality rates of any government of any country anywhere in the world.

“We have done it before and believe me, we are going to do it again. And in so doing, the strong economy that we’re going to build is the economy that is going to provide the platform for our victory in 2024”.

The President assured that his government is negotiating a good deal with the IMF that will serve the best interest of the country.

“I want to assure the people of Ghana that we are going to negotiate a good deal with the IMF. A deal that would allow us to revive our economy and to continue the task of building an even stronger economy than we had before.”       

He further assured that, “we will be in a position, not only to negotiate, but implement a good arrangement”.
