To this end, the President said, his government has proven to be good managers of the Ghanaian economy.
“This has resulted in the growing stability of the macro-economy and the cedi, reduction in inflation and interest rates. At the halfway stage of my government’s tenure, we have proven, by all accounts, to be good managers of the Ghanaian economy, and we have made significant progress in all aspects of our nation’s life and towards the realisation of the vision of a Ghana Beyond Aid,” Nana Addo said.
The President was speaking at the 12th Graduation Ceremony of Akrofi-Christaller Institute of Theology, Mission and Culture, at Akropong, Akuapem, in the Eastern Region.
He added that, contrary to the last eight years, his government has reduced utilities and established policies like NABCO to mitigate the high unemployment levels in the country.
“Employment of some 100,000 young men and women through NABCO; or in bringing relief to the Ghanaian people, and spurring on business and industry, through significant reductions of utility tariffs, contrary to the experience of the previous 8 years which had witnessed only systematic increases in utility tariffs are examples of how positively our policies have impacted positively on the lives of every Ghanaian and in every part of the country,’’ President Akufo-Addo stated.

The President, however, admitted that there is a lot more that his government can do to put the country on a path of progress.
He, therefore, called on Ghanaians to support his government to be able to achieve its targets.
“That is why I need the support of every Ghanaian, especially the support and prayers of the Church and institutions such as ACI, to help me and my government carry out our mandate successfully,” President Akufo-Addo added.
