…We said that when by the grace of Allah we get into government, we will undertake a number of policies and by the grace of God we have gotten into government; we have looked at the economic situation, it is not an easy one, it is a very difficult one. But by the grace of Allah, we intend to keep all the promises that we made to the people of Ghana.
Continuing, the Vice president pointed out that the new administration really means business and is seriously working towards achieving the major goal for which they were elected by the people of Ghana, which is; transforming the economy.
