President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has revealed that former President John Dramani Mahama left huge debt behind for him instead of money.
The President, who restated his earlier stance that the administration of the former President is to be blamed for the poor state of the Ghanaian economy, said: “I inherited a poor economy.”
President Akufo-Addo stated this on Thursday while rounding off his 2-day visit to the Brong Ahafo Region.
He said: “My predecessor did not leave me much money. What he, rather, left me was a lot of debt.
“Nonetheless, we are beginning to turn the fortunes of our country around, and we will find the money for the construction of the stadium and the completion of the University.”
Speaking on his resolve to accomodate different opinions from Ghanaians on national matters, the President said it was for that reason he invited his three predecessors to seek their views on certain governance and developmental related issues.
“They accepted my invitation and gave me invaluable advice. This will not be a ‘one-day-wonder’. It will be a feature of my administration.
