Dr Ndoum, who spoke on a wide-range of issues in an address to the leadership of the Trades Union Congress (TUC), said he will follow the footsteps of the Chinese and Koreans in building a resilient economy for Ghana.
He made the statement when a question was thrown at him by a member of the Union on whether Ghana needs the Bretton Woods institutions, especially the International Monetary Fund (IMF).
“We do not need anybody from anywhere to come and tell us what to do as a sovereign nation. Ghanaians want the easy way out hence always running to the waiting arms of these multinational institutions anytime there is difficulty,” Dr Ndoum answered.
“See where China and Korea are? This is the kind of decisions we will opt for in order to build our economy,” he added.
Touching on job creation, Dr Ndoum promised to create thousands of jobs for the many unemployed youths.
My “party when voted, will create jobs for the teeming unemployed youth scattered across the country,” he said in an address to the leadership of the TUC.
He added: "We are talking from what we have done in the various sectors of the economy in some communities across Ghana, which we know and believe it will work for the whole country."
