The president told leaders of the Anglican Church on Sunday, February 12, 2023, that he is determined to solve the challenges the country has faced since COVID-19 and the Russia-Ukraine war.

“With the help of Almighty God, and backed by a sense of determination, hard work and collective sacrifices on our part, I am confident that we will successfully confront the difficulties, bring relief to the Ghanaian people, and return the economy back to the high rates of growth that characterised the management of our economy in the three years preceding the COVID outbreak in 2020 and the Russian invasion of Ukraine," the president said.
