Jobs coming; foundation laid – Akufo-Addo

Dec. 18, 2017, 2 p.m.

President Nana Akufo-Addo has said his government has used the first year in office to lay the foundation for job creation.

He told the governing New Patriotic Party’s Extraordinary Delegates’ Conference in Kumasi on Sunday, 17 December that: “We’ve had important challenges: Invincible and Delta Forces, and the tensions at the grassroots of the party over jobs.

“I appreciate very much the anxiety over jobs. What I’m saying is that the foundation has been laid for jobs,” adding: “It has not been easy because we inherited a bankrupt economy but because of the ingenuity of the people I’m working with, we’ve been able to lay a good foundation.”

He urged the party to remain united and confident, saying: “We are on the right path and soon it will be obvious to everybody.”

The president said: “Our race is not a sprint. It’s a cross-country and a marathon race.”
