We’ve built more schools, interchanges, roads than any govt in the 4th Republic – Bawumia

Vice President Dr Mahamudu Bawumaia has indicated that the Akufo-Addo administration has over the past six years in office built more schools, roads, airports, interchanges than any other government in the Fourth Republic.

He has appealed to Ghanaians to recollect these achievements of the government in the midst of the economic turmoil they are saddled with currently.

Dr Bawumia indicated that the hardships are being felt globally, not only in Ghana.

In a remark at the Hogbestosto Festival at Anlo in the Volta Region on Saturday November 5, he said “we all know we are facing global economic crisis which Togbe Sri III referred to. This is a crisis that is being felt all over the world and the cost of living accelerated across the globe.

“If you look at the cost of living as measured by the rate of inflation, between 2019 and now, the rate of inflation has increased by five-fold in Ghana, it has increased  by sixteen-fold  in Togo,  it has increased by eleven-fold in Senegal, it has increased by seven-fold in Cote D’Ivoire and eight-fold in the United Kingdom.

“The increase in the cost of living has caused hardships not only in Ghana but many countries. In fact, the BBC noted about two weeks ago that so far, this year, in 93 countries we have had public protests against the increased cost of living. It is important to know however that amidst all of this turmoil  we should put things in perspectives.

He added “The government of Nana Akufo-Addo has over the last six years  taken many steps  to reposition  and transform the economy . So whiles we have hardships  today which we are working very hard to alleviate, and Insah Allah, we will deal with it, let us not forget what  we have been able to do in  the last six years.
