Government has welcomed the latest report by the Economic Intelligence Unit which predicts a win for the NPP administration in election 2020.
According to the EIU in its report released on May 13, 2019, Ghana on the watch of President Akufo-Addo is experiencing among others strong growth and it will be difficult for the opposition NDC under former President John Dramani Mahama, to portray itself as the better custodian of Ghana’s economy, especially as the country’s growth outlook looks fairly strong.
Addressing Journalists at the Minister’s Press Briefing in Accra, Minister for Information Kojo Oppong Nkrumah reiterated government’s commitment to executing the change agenda, which as assessed by some external organisations including the EIU would lead to a re-election of the NPP administration in 2020.
“You recall a report was released not long ago by the Political Science Department of the University of Ghana which also presented similar outlook. The Akufo-Addo administration views these reports first as feedback which enables us to evaluate our progress of work in creating prosperity and equal opportunity for all as stated in our 2016 manifesto” he told reporters.
Mr. Nkrumah said government was committed to fulfilling its campaign promises notably rebuilding a strong economy, developing and executing strong flagship programs as well as transforming various aspects of our national lives.
He also revealed that the Akufo-Addo administration was focussing on maintaining a strong economic foundation and outlook while guarding against the risks highlighted in the EIU report in order not to compromise on its collective progress.
The Minister assured that government will continue to study the performance reports with a view to continuing the good work and review policies where necessary.
