Prez Elated About 2019 Budget

By on

As Ghanaians wait patiently for the 2019 fiscal statement of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) Government, President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has hinted that the   budget would “reflect the hope Ghanaians have in the government and the future of the country.”

He said though his administration inherited an ailing economy, systematically, it had succeeded – as economic indicators have shown – to put the country’s economy back on the right path.

According to the President, “There is no reason for the people of Ghana to be poor because God has endowed Ghanaians with everything, and if we put it together properly, we should be a wealthy and developed nation; that is the vision that is animating me.”

The President made the disclosure when he inducted into office, six new ministers whose nominations were approved by Parliament on Thursday.

They included Information Minister Kojo Oppong Nkrumah, Gender and Social Protection Minister Cynthia Morrison, Brong-Ahafo Regional Minister Evans Opoku Bobie, Upper East Regional Minister Paulina Abayage, Deputy Eastern Regional Minister Samuel Nuetey Ayertey and the Deputy Brong-Ahafo Minister Martin Oti Gyarko.

At a short ceremony at the Jubilee House in Accra, President Akufo-Addo told the new Ministers that they had proven their mettle and were deserving of those appointments.

He told them that though they were joining his administration half-way through its term, they should integrate speedily and cooperate with other appointees to enable the government to deliver on its policies and programmes.

He further urged the ministers to realise that they were not in competition with one another and anybody, but were all working together to deliver on the things his administration promised the Ghanaian people that got them to vote them into power

President Akufo-Addo said though his government had delivered on some of its promises, there were still others to go, and, “if we all continue to work hard and keep our eyes on the ball,” his administration would be able to give a good account of its stewardship.

Mr Oppong Nkrumah. on behalf of the ministers, thanked the President for the confidence reposed in them, assuring that they would work to meet the expectations of the government and Ghanaians.
