Postby synteche » Sat Jan 07, 2017 6:41 pm

Ghana’s new President, Nana Akufo-Addo, has pledged to cut taxes to boost the economy.

Mr Akufo-Addo made the promise at his swearing in ceremony on Saturday.

He also pledged to protect the public purse by getting value for money on services.

The 72-year-old, who contested under the platform of the New Patriotic Party, was elected president on his third attempt to reach the post.

He defeated incumbent John Dramani Mahama in peaceful elections a month ago, a rare peaceful transfer of power in a region plagued by political crises.

Here are few things he promised the Ghana people:

- Reduction in taxes to recover the momentum of our economy

- government money would be spent wisely.

“I shall protect the public purse by insisting on value for money,” he said. “Public service is just that: service, and (is) not be seen as an opportunity for making money.”

- Ghanaians should expect return to above eight per cent in 2017 as new oil and gas fields from Tullow and ENI come on tap.

- free high school education and

- more factories in Ghana.
