Dec 3, GNA – Government has been commended for introducing audacious policies
and programmes which appear herculean but potentially transformative to turn
around the country’s wobbling economy into a resilient one.
like the Free Senior High School, one million Dollar per constituency, One
District One Dam, One District One Factory, Zongo Development Fund, planting
for food and jobs and rearing for food and jobs have been highly praised in the
Bia West District.
Speaking to the
Ghana News Agency in Oseikojokrom, Alhaji Abdulai Yajubu, the Bia West District
Chief Imam, said such bold initiatives could only come about and implemented
through what he called “tough minds and willing hearts.”
He showered profound
praises upon President Nana Addo Dankwa Akuffo-Addo’s administration for having
“long term wellbeing of the nation and its people at heart”.
He said with genuine
commitment the policies enumerated above could easily be accomplished and make lasting impact on the
lives of Ghanaians and generations yet unborn.
However, the Chief
Imam urged government to remain focused and “fight the good fight” which would
surely bring victory in the next general elections.
He also urged Ghanaians
to bear with the President and his government, when the going gets tough while implementing the transformational
policies, saying: “since no new thing
comes so easily, it takes a lot of patience.”
“Every new thing comes
with teething problems and so are these
policies, what is needed now, is concerted efforts by the government and
the citizenry to ensure the successful
implementation of the policies,” he said.
The Imam appealed to
Ghanaians not to play politics with issues of national interest, but
play their individual and collective roles effectively, so that they could
all enjoy the benefits thereof.
He also urged the
President to always be in touch with the grassroots and espouse his
achievements more forcibly to the populace.
“Try as much as
possible to make sure that the national cake is equitably distributed,” he
“The right things
must get to the right people at the right time, through the right channels and
this will make Ghanaians appreciate you better and longer.”
