January 7th marks exactly a year since President Akufo-Addo was sworn to office. All too soon, his administration continues to receive feedback and criticism from supporters and political contenders alike.
The administration of the New Patriotic Party, won the heart and mind of millions of Ghanaian voters who just wanted change and economic liberation at a point in the country were graduate unemployment stands at nearly 50 percent.
Despite some of the ambitious plans Nana Addo and his government took, including the Free SHS and one-district-one-factory initiative, the government was able to deliver on all its promises just in the first year in office.
But the economy was still a major challenge to the government as the debt to GDP ratio remained on the high side. This saw the finance minister, Ken Ofori Attah develop a new strategy to ease the cost of doing business in Ghana and open the gates for more private sector involvements.
Based on the economic progress of the NPP-led government, Ghana continues to witness the avid interest of many world leaders to explore business partnerships with Ghana.
This can be seen with the high-power delegation from France and Germany, the visit by the Ivorian leader and also Nana Addo's engagement with the British Prime minister, Theresa May.
But beyond these partnerships has been government's recent decision to move from getting aids and grants from international donors and partners.
This "Ghana beyond aid" agenda has seen Nana Addo commended all over the world as he seeks to end the trend of Ghana going to the west to beg for aid.
Aside from the success stories, there still lie grave challenges the NPP administration would have to address moving forward. These include the influx of Ghanaians leaving the shores of Ghana for greener pastures, the emergence of political vigilante groups as Delta Forces, the threat of terror, to mention a few.
Although the government has reassured of its efforts to deal with these emerging threats, it still seems there is more to be done in the remaining three years of NPP's stay in office.
As government strives to make Ghana a better place, we can't but join in to make this dream a reality. After all, it is in our interest as Ghanaians to see our country become the best we ever imagined to be.
In all, we continue to pray that this NPP administration delivers on all of its promises for the development of Ghana.
