- President Akufo-Addo has said it is possible to develop Ghana without foreign aid
- The President has reiterated his commitment to achieve this goal
- But some Ghanaians on social media have said this is simply impossible and unattainable
President Akufo-Addo has stated that it is possible for Ghana to be developed without depending on foreign aid.
The President has said Ghana is endowed, and that with the proper management of the country’s natural resources, it is possible to say goodbye to foreign aid.
But some Ghanaians on social media seems to hold a different view from the President’s.
They are pessimistic about the President’s goal, and have given many reasons on social media why the goal is unattainable.
These Ghanaians made their views known on the official Facebook page of YEN.com.gh, in a public survey.
Here are 7 reasons given by the social media users as to why the 'Ghana without aid policy' is a mere mirage.
1. This user believes even if it is possible to develop Ghana without foreign aid, it can not happen under Akufo-Addo's government or the NDC government. According to him, the only person who can really achieve this policy is PPP's Dr. Papa Kwesi Nduom.
2. For this user, it is completely impossible to develop Ghana without foreign aid because "even America depends on aid from China." From his comment, Sampson seems to say Ghana has not reached a self-dependency level to do without foreign aid.
3. This user believes Ghana's politicians are not capable of developing Ghana without foreign aid.
4. This user feels governments only talk but at the end there is "no show."
5. This user believes poverty in some parts of Ghana shows Ghana beyond aid is not possible
6. According to this user, many African countries would continue to depend on foreign aid for a long time and Ghana is no exception
7. According to this user, Akufo-Addo is only doing a "talk-shop'
