Finance Minister, Ken Ofori-Atta has assured members of the #FixTheCountry movement that the Akufo-Addo administration remains resolute in delivering on its promises to fix the country’s problems.
Members of the movement had expressed displeasure over successive government’s failure to improve the living standards of Ghanaians on Twitter using the hashtag #FixTheCountry. They cited dumsor, unemployment, poor healthcare systems as proof of successive governments’ mismanagement of the country.
Reacting to their concerns at a press briefing on Sunday themed ‘rebuilding the Ghanaian Economy’, the Minister said despite the economic impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, the government’s resolve to fixing the country remains unbroken. “The good people of Ghana have given us the mandate to get things done. For us as a government, this is a clarion call for a national conversation on the shared burden to reduce the social contract of our democracy.
At its minimum, we should ensure social justice and social mobility for all Ghanaians to provide an economic system in which each citizen is guaranteed the opportunity to show their full potential. I will commit to working with Ghanaians to fix the structures that will connect Ghanaians to this path,” he added.
