“Inspite of the global situation, President Akufo-Addo is determined to bring back confidence and relief to Ghanaians. He is working towards reaching a deal with the IMF by the end of the year. This will give further credence to the measures Government is taking to stabilize and grow the economy, as well as shore up our currency.

“The President is also determined to restore and sustain debt sustainability. In that regard, he plan to reduce our total public debt to GDP ratio to some fifty-five percent (55%) in present value terms by 2028, with the servicing of our external debt pegged at not more than eighteen percent (18%) of our annual revenue also by 2028.

“Indeed, some steps have been taken to restore order in the forex markets and we are already beginning to see some calm returning.

“And as the President said, government is working with the Bank of Ghana and the oil producing and mining companies to introduce a new legal and regulatory framework to ensure that all foreign exchange earned from operations in Ghana are, initially, paid to banks domiciled in Ghana to help boost the domestic foreign exchange,” he said whiles commending the president on his speech delivered on Sunday, October 30, 2022.

He indicated that the most interesting thing was the president’s clear desire to take the country from the current difficulties to a better place.

“He spoke of the profound economic crises the country has been facing and offered the blueprints in tackling the problem. He was spot on in every meaningful sense. The President’s central message of hope and vision was loud and clear. He has supervised a fair governance system, delivering quality public services for all.

“Whichever way you turn it; from whichever side you look at it; at the heart of all problems lies in the post pandemic vulnerabilities and the Ukraine/Russia geopolitics.
Not of all, of course, but of most. It’s definitely making matters worse for the entire world.”

This, he said, makes President Akufo-Addo an “iconic emblem of leadership” because he showed the same resilience during the Covid-19 pandemic.
