Ghana’s Vice President, Alhaji Dr. Mahamudu, has called on his country’s citizens to work together to fix the economy and offer relief to the people.
He assured the people of Ghana that the country’s economic situation would improve.
A newfound sense of confidence and faith in God, he claims, will inspire the government to restore the nation’s economy.
Bawumia used the biblical verse Isaiah 40:31 to back up his claims during his speech at the 70th-anniversary celebration of Our Lady of Mercy Catholic Church in Tema Community 1.
He used the event to say that the government “recognizes the difficulties and uncertainty we are experiencing in the world and the country, but with new strategies, fiscal discipline, hard work, and renewed strength, by the Grace of God, we are confident that we will ride the storm and turn things around.”
In addition, he said, “As children of God, there will always be times of hopelessness, despair, doubt, fear, and uncertainty, but our trust in God is always our source of strength and inspiration in these periods.”
He admitted that Ghana’s economy is struggling but said confidently, “we will ride this storm.”
Meanwhile, President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has said that discussions with key organizations and agencies are now underway as part of efforts to solve the present economic difficulties.
Speaking at the Presbyterian Church of Ghana Akyem Abuakwa Presbytery’s Centenary Thanksgiving Service and Dedication of Centenary Complex in Kyebi, Nana Addo assured the congregation that he is unfazed by his critics’ words and is instead focused on the policies enacted by his government to improve Ghana’s economic situation.
He urged his countrymen to keep up their rallies of support, their prayers, and their confidence in him so that they might pull the nation out of its present economic crisis.
