Building an economy isn't an event but a process that can delay - Agbenyo

Fred Agbenyo has assured Ghanaians of a 'Better Ghana' under the administration of President John Dramani Mahama in the year 2017.

The Deputy Communications Director of the ruling National Democratic Congress stated on Peace FM's 'Kokrokoo' that Ghanaians should be prepared for a new wave of change in the economy because the Mahama government has outlined several developmental projects to enhance the growth of the economy.

He held strongly that no government in the annals of Ghana's history has made great strides in infrastructure development as the current government.

However, Fred Agbenyo admitted that there are challenges that need to be addressed by the government, hence appealing for a second term for President Mahama.

“I thank all Ghanaians that in the midst of all the challenges, they’ve been able to tolerate and support this government and the President to this level. We will continue to ask for that support. We will continue to ask for that tolerance . . . It takes time to build an economy. It is not an event. It’s a process and it can delay,” he said.

Mr. Agbenyo further noted that there is no State on earth that is not confronted by challenges.

He mentioned super powers like the United States, United Kingdom and others, who he believed continue to have problems despite their margin of progress.

To him, Ghanaians have not been able to address all their household problems and so should not pay any attention to the opposition parties who want to create an impression that they can solve their problems.

"Ghana should be prepared. Whatever the government will do between now and 7th December, the opposition will question it and turn it upside down. They will criticize it from their own perspectives. Ghanaians should be prepared for all those things . . . Have we been able to take care of our own; How much more a nation?" he rhetorically asked.
