- Nana Addo has given his government a positive rating
- The president argues political detractors have failed in pulling down his government
President of the republic, Nana Addo Danquah Akufo, has praised himself for a good job done in the first one year of governance.
In an address to chiefs and people of New Juaben as part of his tour to the Eastern Region, the president boasted that all policies rolled out by the government are beginning to yield positive results.
According to him, the fruits of all these policies will be enjoyed in 2018. He also promised more jobs for the teeming unemployed in the country.
“Those who spread falsehood and criticized my promises are now ashamed, they have even refused to congratulate me for the work I have done so far and on delivering on my promise…. We have laid a solid foundation in our first year of office in the field of agriculture, infrastructure, education and health, the foundation has been laid for the taking off of our country and next year is going to be about jobs,” he said.
The Akufo-Addo led administration has been commended both far and near for the private-sector approach to governance. The president, through these policies, has rolled out the planting for food and jobs, one-district-one-factory among other policies.
Despite this success, the president continues to face grave challenges regarding glaring instances of corruption and waste of public funds.
But even though the president still insists these are the works of the main opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), it turns out that more still needs to be done to check the level of corruption.
