In a candid acknowledgment of Ghana’s intricate challenges, President Nana Akufo-Addo has maintained that there are no instant solutions to the myriad of issues facing the nation.
During an address commemorating the 30th anniversary of the 4th Republic, President Akufo-Addo underscored the importance of strategic planning, collaboration, and collective efforts from both the government and citizens to overcome the hurdles.
He highlighted the administration’s dedication to implementing policies and initiatives aimed at bringing about lasting positive change.
“I have spent my adult life fighting for our individual and collective rights, and it is, therefore, gratifying to note that the nation’s adherence to democracy has not waned. We know that there are no quick fixes to the challenges confronting us, and, as we have seen in recent times, democratic structures of governance are capable of accommodating the most difficult of circumstances.”
Despite the economic challenges, the President echoed Finance Minister Ken Ofori-Atta’s remarks, emphasizing that Ghana has turned the corner in terms of economic difficulties.
He assured the public that the government would continue working towards building a strong and resilient economy to confront the nation’s problems.
“We have, happily, turned the corner on our economic situation as we experience the rebound of the national economy, and we will continue to work strongly at the problems facing the nation, knowing that the solution, every four (4) years, rests, in part, on the sovereign will of the Ghanaian people when you exercise your power to choose freely your leaders to manage the affairs of the country.”
President Akufo-Addo’s statement serves as a call to action for unity and a reminder that overcoming challenges demands a patient and well-thought-out approach.
