I inherited an economy in deep crisis – Akufo-Addo

The President of the Republic, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has reiterated that his government inherited an economy in intense difficulty.

This According to him is the reason his government is putting in place several measures to nurse it back to full health.

President Akufo-Addo made this known when he began his 3-day tour of the Central Region with a courtesy call on the Central Regional House of Chiefs, and addressed a durbar of Chiefs at Twifo Atti Morkwaa.

He assured Ghanaians that the policies and programmes being implemented by his government will improve their living conditions, and help put Ghana on the path of progress and prosperity.

The implementation of policies such as Free SHS, 1-District-1-Factory, programme for Planting for Food and Jobs, 1-Village-1-Dam, together with the revival of the National Health Insurance Scheme, he said, have been made possible because of the stability brought to bear on the Ghanaian economy.

At Twifo Atti Morkwa, a constituency won by the New Patriotic Party in 2016, for the first time in history of the 4th Republic, the President told the Chiefs and people that an audit of the cocoa roads is being carried out, and very soon cocoa roads in the constituency will be constructed.

Additionally, a 60-bed hospital under construction at the constituency, he assured, will soon be completed, as equipment for the hospital is at currently at the Tema port, and will be cleared soon for delivery to Twifo Atti Morkwaa.

With the Free SHS programme being a flagship policy of his government, President Akufo-Addo stressed that the programme will commence in September 2017, which will benefit the 1,200 students at the basic level in the constituency.

"I have been bastardised by several persons who claim the Free SHS policy is a misplaced priority, a lie, and cannot be done. The Free SHS policy, I wish to assure them, will start from September," he said.

The 1-District-1-Factory policy, President Akufo-Addo noted, will be rolled out in the course of this month, and will create hundreds of thousands of jobs.
