Vice President Mahamudu Bawumia has promised a quick recovery of Ghana’s economy after the COVID-19 pandemic.
He says Ghana’s Beyond Aid agenda, which captures policies such as the Planting for Food and Jobs, will enable Ghana to recover quickly from the devastating effects of the pandemic.
Speaking to the state broadcaster, GBC, after the Virtual Eid-ul Fitr celebration at the station on Sunday, the Vice President said:
“The President has already placed Ghana on a trajectory that allows us to come out of this crisis relatively quickly.”
“As you know, one of the economic factors for growth in countries in the world after the pandemic is self-reliance. You are going to look at self-reliance in food production, manufacturing and in services– that is really the Ghana Beyond Aid that the President started talking about way before this pandemic came into being. And so that trajectory that we have already embarked upon will allow us to recover from this pandemic much more quickly than probably other pandemics.”
He remains hopeful that his government will deliver and, at the end of the day, be given an extra 4 years in power.
