Ghana’s Weak Local Currency Is A Result Of Large Importation — Mahama Promises To Revert The Trend When Voted Into Power

Published

on


Former President John Dramani Mahama has given the assurance that the next National Democratic Congress (NDC) government would revamp all the defunct state and strategic key industries to spearhead its national industrialization drive.

To revamp such national assets that had supported lives for over 100 years, Mr Mahama said a $10 billion accelerated infrastructural plan, dubbed: the Big Push, will drive jobs and entrepreneurial agenda when elected in December 2020.

He said the economy of Ghana was largely import-led, thus, the country had become a large warehouse of imported consumer goods, hence, his Party would vigorously set up agro-processing zones to reverse the trend.

The over-reliance on imports of basic commodities that could have otherwise been produced here in Ghana is a reflection of the country’s weak local currency, the cedi. He added.

“As a citizen of Breman Asikuma, I felt that the message would go a long way to better the living standard of the community of which I belong.

Kpone Chief Denies Walking Out On Akufo-Addo; Says People Want To Destroy His Warm Relationship With The President

Published

on


The Kpone Traditional Council has rubbished reports that suggested paramount chief of the area, Nii Tetteh Otu II walked out on President Akufo-Addo over being unhappy with the artistic impression of a district hospital yet to be built.

In a viral video, the chief was seen expressing disappointment while the audience looked on.

Speaking at a press conference, the chief said, “the misinformation on social media has put the name of the traditional council into disrepute and we suspect some people out there want to destroy the warm relationship we have with Nana Addo.”

He explained that his people are highly pleased with the hospital project; adding that his gestures in the viral picture was misconstrued.

According to him, he was only suggesting to the President that they rather construct a multi-storey facility for the district hospital, to help conserve land which the President obliged.

“We are very happy about the hospital project and find it shocking for anyone to say the traditional authorities here are displeased with it. Having waited for a project like this, we were happy that it was finally going to materialise,” he indicated.
