President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has given yet another assurance that the economy will be back to full recovery soon.
He said the government is working tirelessly to make this possible.
“I said at the height of the Covid-19 pandemic that we do not know how to bring back lives, but we know how to bring back an economy. I stand by those words,” he said.
“Insha Allah, we are working to restore the economy to full health, and, Insha Allah, we shall do so.”
President Akufo-Addo gave this assurance while addressing thousands of Muslims at the Black Star Square to mark this year’s Eid-ul Adha on Wednesday, June 28.
His assurance comes in the wake of gradual recovery of the economy after the first tranche of the International Monetary Fund (IMF) facility hit the vaults.
President Akufo-Addo emphasised efforts by government to continue the good policies.
“As you can see, we are beginning to navigate the turbulence, with our economy growing by 4.2 percent in the first quarter of 2023,” he said.
“The currency has seen some stability lately, and, through the Gold for Oil Programme, we have seen the stability in the prices of petroleum products as well, all of which are bringing inflation down. Things are getting better, and will get better, I can assure you. Things are getting better and will get better.”
