We’ve made good progress – Mahama

President John Dramani Mahama has said his government has made good progress despite the many challenges it has faced.

Speaking at a presidential debate organised by the Ghana Broadcasting Corporation (GBC) and the National Commission for Civic Education (NCCE) in Accra on Wednesday 30 November, Mr Mahama noted that Ghana’s prospects were bright.

“We have been through challenges and we have risen up to the challenges together. We’ve made sacrifices. We were confronted with the situation of an unstable economy, power crisis, crumbling infrastructure [but] over these four years we have together, as Ghanaians, faced these challenges and I must say that we have made good progress,” he stated.

“There is a general consensus that there is light at the end of the tunnel. Everybody, including our international partners, believes that Ghana’s growth prospects are very bright and I want to say that change can be very exciting, but it’s often the easy solution; staying focused is more important.”

Mr Mahama is seeking re-election in the December 7 election.
