The New Patriotic Party (NPP) Constituency Chairman for the New Juabeng North in the Eastern Region, Kwadwo Boateng-Agyemang, said, the country’s economy is rebounding and the major commodity exporter is poised to wean itself off bailouts through sustained fiscal discipline and a battle against corruption.
He said his government spent the past year stabilizing the economy, including clearing huge debts while rolling out infrastructures such as schools and roads.
Kwadwo Boateng-Agyemang said it was one of many steps towards building a more capable workforce to take the economy further.
“We are nowhere near where we ought to be, but the arguments have been settled, and, believe me, this has been a critical bridge for us to cross. And for our Ghanaian circumstances, we dare not undermine confidence in our young democracy,” Kwadwo Boateng-Agyemang told Kwaku Dawuro on ‘Pae Mu Ka’ on Accra-based Kingdom FM 107.7
According to him, he indicated that the determination of Ghanaians to build their democracy is further anchored in their deep-seated belief in the concept of the separation of powers as an active principle for the promotion of freedom and accountable governance, free of corruption.
Ghana is now the only other country in sub-Saharan Africa to establish a Fiscal Council, after the Republic of Mauritius. The Council will advise the President on ensuring compliance with fiscal law, rules and targets.
