President-elect Nana Akufo Addo has promised to tackle the economy ahead-one in a bid to create jobs.

Akufo Addo, who secured a landslide victory against incumbent President John Mahama, said the country has the human resources to deal with the challenges facing the country,

"My mandate is to get young people jobs," he said at a meeting with the Catholic Bishops Conference Friday. "We have the human material to be able to confront the challenges facing our country. There is no reason why our country should be poor.

He said there is no reason Ghana should be poor in the midst of abundance resources, promising to harness it to the benefit of all Ghanaians.

Akufo-Addo also added that his administration will work in the interest of Ghanaians and "not ourselves."

The president-elect said he believes in "the concept of Ghana as the star of Africa" because it captures the "spirit of what Ghana should be."

He also called for the support of the Conference to rebuild Ghana together.

According to him, the Catholic Church has been a strong pillar in Ghana's democracy, urging the church's highest decision body to offer criticism when he goes wrong.

The visit of the Bishops follows a similar one to outgoing president John Mahama.
