They include:

1.2 million children with unfettered access to free SHS education (the highest enrolment in our history)
Revived healthcare system
Bumper harvest of foodstuff for two years in succession
Food prices at their lowest in years
Tens and Tens of Thousands of Teachers and Health workers, Graduates and non-graduates alike given jobs
Police Service and Armed Forces retooled and re-equipped to a considerable extent
Ghana’s economy one of the fastest growing in the world this year
Ghana is largest recipient of Foreign Direct Invest in West Africa

According to President Akufo-Addo, government has had to take painful but necessary measures to sanitize the banking system, which process he acknowledged has brought discomfort to many households.

But he said as a result of the action, the jobs of some 6,500 workers were saved in addition to the protection of funds of about 4.6 million depositors. Failure to take the steps to remedy the situation, he said, would have meant that some 10,000 jobs could have been lost.

The President said he has directed the Bank of Ghana and the Finance Ministry to work to ensure that all customers in banks as well as those of savings and loans and microfinance companies whose licences have been revoked are guaranteed the full payment of their deposits.

In the meantime, he says investigations are ongoing into potential criminal conduct in the apparent massive diversion of assets of some affected financial institutions.
