President Nana Akufo-Addo has been presented with the Ghana Beyond Aid strategy document in Accra.
The document outlines the roadmap of how Ghana can achieve self-reliance and economic freedom.
The strategic document was prepared and presented to the president by the 13-member Ghana Beyond Aid Charter Committee, which the president constituted in June 2018.
Addressing the committee after they presented the strategic document as well as a two-page charter to him at the Jubilee House, President Akufo-Addo said, as quickly as possible, he would want Parliament to have access to the document, discuss it thoroughly and approve it in order to make its content a guiding light for all state actors.
He noted that, the document was necessary for the country’s next phase of development and will help the government and its agencies work strongly together to achieve the Ghana Beyond Aid agenda.
He said the agenda of a Ghana Beyond Aid, primarily was a mobilizing strategy to conscientise Ghanaians “that no one was going to come from anywhere to develop Ghana for them other than Ghanaians themselves”.
“Africa ought to utilize its own resources and rely more on appropriate home-grown policies to unlock the economic potential of the continent. Progress would be made when we accept responsibility for our own actions and thereby conduct ourselves in a manner that would be fruitful,” he added.
On his part, chairman of the charter, Senior Minister Yaw Osafo Marfo, told the president that the strategy document was a reflection of the collective inputs of 30 institutions.
Some of the members of the Committee included the Minister of Finance, Ken Ofori-Atta; Minister of Employment and Labour Relations, Ignatius Baffour Awuah, Minister of Planning, Prof. Gyan Baffour, and the Minister of Local Government and Rural Development, Hajia Alima Mahama.
The rest were drawn from the Trades Union Congress, the Private Enterprise Foundation, the Ghana National Association of Teachers, as well as the Association of Ghana industries.
