President Nana Akufo-Addo has said that the economic revolution being embarked by the New Patriotic Party (NPP) should ensure that Ghanaians stopped putting their lives in danger by crossing the Sahara Desert in search of better opportunities.

He said Ghana is working to grow the economy and churn out numerous opportunities for all citizens.

“No longer should Ghanaians feel the need to subject themselves to the intolerable and inhumane conditions of crossing the Sahara and drowning in the Mediterranean in the hope of making a living in Europe,” he told the international community when he made his maiden speech at the UN General Assembly in New York on Thursday, 21 September.

Government has embarked on some initiatives such as the Planting for Food and Jobs and the One-District-One-Factory programmes aimed at creating employment for citizens across the country.

The Ghanaian leader also said Ghana continues to be a beacon of stability and democracy on the African continent, adding that: “Our institutions of state are growing stronger, and we have made more progress in our economy than at any time since independence.

“We are nowhere near where we want to be, but we are determined to realise our potential and make Ghana a prosperous nation.”
