Gov’t will work to bring economy back on track – Bawumia

The Vice President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia has said the Akufo-Addo administration will work to bring the economy back following the devastation done by the dreaded coronavirus pandemic.

“In the coming year, we will continue to strive to get the economy back on track from the shackles of COVID-19,” Dr Bawumia said when he met some Muslims in Accra Monday January 3.

He added “We are also committed to our inclusive governance of the past five years, which has seen us invest in education and other sectors of the country”.

It is recalled that President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo had earlier assured that his government had the ability to resuscitate Ghana’s economy after the outbreak of the virus.


In Ghana, the outbreak impacted on businesses, forcing some operators to announce business shutdown or lay-offs.


Delivering the fourth address to the nation on the coronavirus “As we have demonstrated over the course of the last three years, where we inherited an economy that was growing at 3.4% and transformed it into one which has grown by an average of 7% over the last three (3) years, I assure you that we know what to do to bring back our economy back to life,” he stated
