Former President John Agyekum Kufour has lauded President Akufo Addo and his government for their efforts in the bond market, describing it as ‘thinking outside the box’.
Speaking on Asaase Radio’s ‘Sunday Night’ show on Sunday, he noted that the president has been phenomenal with his social interventions, infrastructures and how the Covid situation had been managed.
“He(Akufo Addo) and his government are showing a tendency that I describe as thinking out of the box. The way the government has used the bond market, perhaps it is early days to judge but to me, they have been smart with the bond market…”
“what government is able to do with allowing free water supply, free electricity and then the way he personally has also managed the COVID-19 situation […] he’s been quite regular addressing the people every week […] he’s done quite well,” he added.
“Planting for food and jobs, one district one factory, all these things are coming up, all that I can say is he’s doing well,” he stressed.
