Things are looking good for Ghana – First Lady

First Lady, Mrs Rebecca Akufo-Addo, believes things are looking good for Ghana under President Akufo-Addo.

She said the president “came to office with a lot of promises and he is working hard to achieve all of them,” adding that “he has achieved quite a lot” since taking office.

Mrs. Akufo-Addo was speaking to officials of the Ghana Embassy in the People’s Republic of China where she is on an official state visit.

She noted that with a determined and focused person like Akufo-Addo steering affairs of the country, there “is a lot of hope for Ghana and things are already looking good for Ghana.”

The First Lady urged the staff to project the good name of Ghana as well as seek knowledge and skills that can help develop the West African country.

“There is a lot to learn from China therefore those of you here should learn and bring the knowledge back home to improve the country”, she said.

She announced that the newly constructed mother and baby unit at the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital in Kumasi facilitated by the Rebecca Foundation will be inaugurated by the close of this year and her “next stop is Korle Bu.”

Ghana’s Ambassador to China, Mr. Edward Boateng, assured the First Lady that his staff will “not disappoint the president but work hard to bring more investment into the country as well as look at the wellbeing of Ghanaians in China.”

The First Lady is in China with a group of women entrepreneurs, some members of the Association of Ghana Industries (AGI) and academics to explore investment opportunities for women businesses and investment for the people and government of Ghana.
