President John Mahama has said that the Ghanaian economy has seen much improvement under his stewardship, stating that “the right climate for take-off is here.”
Also, he added that when re-elected in the forthcoming elections, he will implement an Economic Transformation and Livelihood Empowerment Programme (ETLEP). This, he explained, will create numerous employment opportunities for the teeming unemployed youth in several sectors of the economy.
“The environment is getting better and better,” President Mahama wrote on his Facebook Wall on Sunday, adding “the right climate for take-off is here. This is why in my second and final term starting January 2017, God Willing, I am determined to implement an Economic Transformation and Livelihood Empowerment Programme (ETLEP).
“This programme seeks to create more jobs in several sectors of the economy, with private sector involvement, and is anchored on value addition and diversification on the back of sustainable power supply".
He continued: “The Economic Transformation and Livelihood Empowerment Programme will strengthen existing industries and pay particular attention to the entire agriculture value chain. Additionally, the Programme will provide more jobs for the youth and Ghanaians as a whole, improve disposable income and enhance their purchasing power".
President Mahama is expected in the Northern region today to continue his campaign after visiting the Western Region.
Some of the areas he is expected to be visiting include Salaga, Kpandai, Bimbilla, Wulensi, Yendi, Gushiegu, Zabzugu, Tatale, Mion, Nanton and Chereponi.
