Minister of Information, Kojo Oppong Nkrumah, has stated that the Akufo-Addo government would internally raise funds to support the 2020 electoral activities across the country.
According to Citinewsroom reports, this is in line with the government’s “Ghana Beyond Aid agenda” which would not consider any form of donor support.
Addressing the media after the cabinet's retreat at Peduase, Oppong Nkrumah said the improvement in domestic revenue mobilization is critical to ensure that the government is able to carry out its obligations.

“What all of this means is that we ourselves have to look at all these obligations and fund them.
The days that we have to be relying on donor partners to execute some of these critical national obligations are over. It falls squarely within our ambits and what that means is that the generation of our internal resources to meet those obligations is key.”
Oppong Nkrumah added that Ghana depends on support from donor partners and central government to fund its parliamentary, presidential and local assembly elections.

In other news, former president John Dramani Mahama says he is the reason why Ghana’s economy is considered as fast growing in the world.
According to the NDC flag bearer, the Akufo-Addo administration is only reaping from his government’s “hard work”.
Addressing party members in the United Kingdom, Mahama said the growth achievement which is being "trumpeted" by the Akufo-Addo government, came about as a result of his administration's sterling performance in office before the current government took over.
