The Presidential spokesperson, Ben Dotse Malor has said that without the support of Ghanaians, President John Mahama cannot drive the nation towards prosperity.
“One President cannot do everything. He sets the agenda, he sets the vision, it’s a good vision, he is committed to the cause of Ghana and so we behind him must do everything for him to succeed and for the good of all of us,” he advised.
According to him, President Mahama is working hard to make Ghana economically self-sufficient.
He stated that the President’s recent management and economic decisions will soon begin to turn the country’s economic fortunes around.
But Malor appealed for support for the President to find workable solutions to the country’s challenges saying, “I think we who are behind the President need to also be changing our mindsets to be solution finders,”
The nation has in recent months, been facing economic challenges which has seen a significant depreciation of the Ghana cedi, high inflation rate, irregular utility supply, fuel price hikes, among others.
These challenges have burdened citizens with hardships while businesses are struggling to survive.
The frustrations of Ghanaians were expressed through various demonstrations aimed at pressurizing the government to urgently find solutions to the nation’s economic problems.
The government subsequently is seeking a bailout from the International Monetary Fund (IMF) to help stabilize the economy.
A team of IMF officials are expected in the country to map out a strategy to lead to economic recovery.
Nonetheless, Mr. Malor in an interview with Citi News said the President is optimistic things will change by the end of the year.
According to him, the President is thinking of reducing the importation of products in order to promote the use of made in Ghana goods.
“We spent $1.5 billion importing into Ghana, food items that we can produce here. President Mahama is keen that if we could bring the $1.5 billion and keep it in Ghana. See what impact that will make.”
Malor continued saying, “he [Mahama] is supporting every effort to make it possible for us to have our own rice, made in Ghana rice, have our own poultry; he is promoting all these things.”
“These things are real and these things are going to improve lives not too long from now,” he added.
