The Western North Regional Organizer of the New Patriotic Party, Samuel Adu Adjei, has stated that despite COVID-19 affecting the global financial state, Ghana’s economy is gradually outgrowing as compared to other countries.
He said this at the maiden edition of Presidential Business Support in Accra yesterday.
Speaking on Okyeame Radio Adekyee Mu Nsem show with Deetu Kwadwo Amofa, the NPP Organizer Adu Adjei said though coronavirus has ravaged the globe, Ghana’s economic wounds are healing, which is clearly shown by economic indicators thus lending, interest rates, Gross Domestic Products ratio among others.
He said the private sector backed the government in the battle against COVID-19, which he feels has helped curb the disease to a certain level.
Mr Adu Adjei further noted that the government’s Public-Private Partnership (PPP), an initiative that supported private businesses during the climax or peak of the COVID-19 pandemic, has greatly influenced the economy to boom.
He added that shoot up in prices of goods and services aren’t headache of Ghana alone, but everywhere around the world and cited the UK as an example.
He’s of the view that government would do its possible best to normalize things since NPP is a listening government.
Mr Adu Adjei added that President Akufo-Addo’s led administration supplied meals, free water and electricity pro bono during the heat period of COVID-19, which is a prime contributing factor to the increase in prices for goods and services.
