“Stop Depending On Foreign Aid” – Ghanaian President Akufo-Addo Tells African Leaders

Ghanaian President, Nana Akufo-Addo has advised his fellow African leaders to stop depending on foreign aid.

According to him, the continent’s many challenges will be resolved if African leaders learn to devise internal measures to address

“… To construct a better path for the nation. Even more importantly is for us to position our nation’s economies on path of self-sustaining growth,” he added.

The President made this appeal in a presidential debate with President Macky Sall of Senegal during the ongoing 5th edition of the Africa CEO Forum in Geneva.


He further stressed the need for African countries to create  independent systems to harness their human and material resources to build the nations without aid.

According to the President, governments on the continent must look at ways to address the challenges confronting the agricultural sector.

Touching on challenges facing Ghana, the President said  the private sector has suffered major deficits, such as poor access to credit, high interest rates, erratic power supply and an unfriendly business climate.
