My Gov’t will create conducive environment for businesses to grow – Mahama


Former President John Dramani Mahama, the flag bearer of the opposition NDC, has assured the business community that his government will create a conducive environment for businesses to thrive if he is re-elected in the upcoming elections.

Speaking at the 8th Ghana CEOs Summit in Accra, he acknowledged the challenges faced by entrepreneurs and business owners in the current economic climate.

He attributed the struggles to the unfavorable business environment, which he blamed on the incumbent government’s policies.

He said the Akufo-Addo’s leadership “has failed Ghanaians and yet refuses to accept or even take responsibility for the most reckless management of our economy in known history.”

“Leadership has plunged our nation into an unprecedented economic crisis and pushed more than eight hundred thousand (800,000) Ghanaians below the poverty line, ” he added.

Mahama promised to implement policies that would stimulate economic growth, create jobs, and attract investment.

He emphasized his commitment to reducing the cost of doing business, streamlining regulations, and enhancing access to credit for small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs).

He stated that businesses play a crucial role in driving economic development, stressing that the NDC’s goal is to create an environment where entrepreneurs can innovate, grow, and succeed, thereby creating jobs and prosperity for all Ghanaians.

Mahama’s pledge resonated with the business community, who have been grappling with high operating costs, bureaucratic red tape, and limited access to financing.

The former President’s promise aligns with his party’s manifesto, which prioritizes economic transformation, job creation, and private sector development. As the election season heats up, Mahama’s commitment to supporting businesses is likely to resonate with voters seeking economic progress and prosperity.
