Ghanaian President, Nana Akufo-Addo has recently attended the African Caucus meeting of finance ministers and central bank governors of the World Bank and IMF in Accra. In the meeting, the president called upon all the higher officials of Africa to contribute towards moving Africa beyond aid.
President Akufo-Addo said, African nations have to use their resources in order to be free from international aid. He also gave hope to the African officials that were present in the meeting by reminding them of how rich Africa is when it comes to the resources.
The president said, no doubt there are a lot of circumstances which convince Africa to survive on international aid but let’s focus on those circumstances which can change Africa’s destiny forever.
He said, “Despite the peculiarities of circumstances in African countries, there are a few fundamental conditions that must be satisfied in order to accelerate our drive to wealth and development, and to realise the vision of an Africa beyond aid— that is, a self-reliant Africa exploiting its immense resources to provide a dignified, decent standard of living for the mass of its peoples.”
