Ghana’s Vice President Bawumia has said the Akufo-Addo administration will work to bring the economy back following the devastation done by the pandemic.
“In the coming year, we will continue to strive to get the economy back on track from the shackles of COVID-19,” Dr Bawumia said when he met some Muslims in Accra Monday January 3.
He added “We are also committed to our inclusive governance of the past five years, which has seen us invest in education and other sectors of the country”.
It is recalled that President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo had earlier assured that his government had the ability to resuscitate Ghana’s economy after the outbreak of the virus.
In other news, Bawumia joined the Christian communities in Kumasi to crossover into the new year visiting three churches (Bremang Ebenezer Methodist Church, St. Peter’s Cathedral Basilica and Ayigya Church of Pentecost).
Addressing the congregations, he maintained that the peace in Ghana is something to be celebrated rather than taken for granted.
“We have a very special country; this country Ghana. Sometimes we take it for granted; until you go to other countries you don’t know how we are blessed as a country.
“We are a peaceful country; we’re the second most peaceful country in Africa and also the most peaceful in West Africa”, he said amidst applause from the Church of Pentecost congregation at Ayigya.
