President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has said he inherited from the previous administration, huge debts and empty coffers.
His administration he said did not inherit a stable economy from the erstwhile Mahama-led government.
The President was however quick to add that, his administration will soon overcome the challenges and restore hope in the economy.
‘’We inherited huge debts and empty coffers. But it does not mean I will do nothing about it. It is for this reason that we put in place the appropriate measures to strengthen our monetary system, so the development we promised the people can be met,” he said.
Nana Addo made the remarks while addressing a durbar of the chiefs and people of Twifo Praso in the Twifo Atti Morkwa in the Central region as part of his two day thank you tour.
President AkufoAddo promised to shame his critics by ensuring he delivers on every single promise he has given to Ghanaians which includes the free SHS, one district one factory among others.
According to the president, plans are far advanced towards the construction of Cape Coast-Twifo Praso , Praso -Dunkwa Offin and Assin Foso Roads, Praso Hospital and other projects which would be completed by the end of this year
Nana further explained that the first term of the NPP government will see massive development across the country.
