On Thursday, March 29, 2018, President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo turned 74 years. Words of congratulations have been pouring in from all over the world.
As YEN.com.gh joins millions of Ghanaians to celebrate this special day with him, there are 5 things expected from him before he celebrates his next birthday:
1. An improved Free SHS programme
The Free SHS programme began in September 2017, amidst questions and concerns about the cost involved, as well as conditions in which the first year students live.
A year by now, Ghanaians would expect an improvement in the programme in the areas such educational materials and general living conditions.
2. 1 District 1 Factory programme
This is a project that would generate a lot of interest from Ghanaians. A factory in every district would boost production of products, especially in the rural and suburban areas.
3. Reduction in unemployment
There has been a constant cry for jobs, especially from unemployment graduates. A strategy to create jobs for such people would be a welcome idea.
Ghanaians generally wish to feel safe, and for reason, an improved security situation in the country would be the best gift Nana Addo would give to Ghanaians to mark his next birthday.
5. Reduced corruption
Ghanaians still believe there is an appreciable level of corruption in government. Measures to ensure that the perception is either significantly reduced or possibly eliminated will be an amazing birthday gift to Ghanaians.
