Ghana Beyond Aid Get your ministers to stop their colonial thinking - IEA Boss tells Akufo-Addo

The president must be able to influence the thinking of his appointees to enable them to refrain from the old way of doing business with the West, the IEA boss has said.

  • Published:

Ghana’s president, Nana Akufo-Addo has been asked to get his appointees to think in line with his determination to modernise the economy without relying on donations and aid from developed countries.

The president, during a meeting with visiting French president, Emmanuel Macron last Thursday, said: “We want to build a value-added, industrialised economy with a modernised agriculture, which is neither victim nor pawn of the world economic order.”

According to Akufo-Addo, this “is the way to develop healthy relations between our two countries, and put Ghana at the high end of the value chain in the global marketplace, and create jobs for the teeming masses of Ghanaians, particularly the youth. Our vision is to build a free, prosperous, independent country, a Ghana Beyond Aid.”

Speaking on the development on Accra-based Joy FM, the Chairman of the IEA Dr. Charles Mensa praised President Akufo-Addo for coming out boldly to speak against the old economic order of the world.

“It’s good that he gathered the courage to say it but what he needs to do is to dismantle the system,” he said.

He added that since some of the European countries tend to use Ministers and appointees of African countries to push their agenda, the president must be able to influence the thinking of his appointees to enable them to refrain from the old way of doing business with the West.

“He [Akufo-Addo] has to wean some of his ministers off this colonial economic mentality, that’s where his challenge is,” Dr. Mensa said.
