President Akufo-Addo says the current woes of the country’s economy are due to the economic disruptions in the past two years caused by the Covid-19 pandemic.

He said the fundamentals of the economy are strong such that even in hard times of the global economy in 2020, Ghana still recorded positive economic growth.

In an interview with Peter Okwoche of the BBC’s Focus on Africa show on Monday, he dismissed comparisons of Ghana’s economic figures with that of the western world.

The Vice President, Dr Mahamudu Bawumia, in other words, reaffirmed government’s commitment to transforming Ghana despite the global economic challenges which have brought dire straits on the country’s fortunes.

Speaking at the Pentecost Convention Centre at Millennium City, Kasoa, on Thursday, Dr Bawumia said the Akufo-Addo government has been focused on undertaking major structural reforms in the Ghanaian economy by shifting from a focus on the production of raw materials to value addition.

According to the Speaker, the three legislators have breached the 15-day absence rule, hence his decision to refer them to the Privileges Committee for the necessary actions to be taken.
