Vice President of Ghana, Dr. Mahamadu Bawumia, has tasked Chief Directors of the various Ministries to support the government’s ‘Ghana Beyond Aid’ Agenda.

The Vice President who was speaking at a dialogue session with Chief Directors indicated that government will depend largely on Ministries, Departments and Agencies, MMDAs to build the economy.

He added that the government has committed itself to achieving the agenda, and will do everything possible to ensure it becomes a reality.

“Our Chief Directors and other heads of ministries, departments and agencies who are at the helm of affairs have the arduous task of leading your respective institutions towards the success of these programs,” he noted.

The Vice President further said he was optimistic that most of the government’s major promises will be achieved if the civil servants support it.

President Akufo-Addo since assuming office has reiterated his resolve to grow the country’s economy from one of dependence on foreign aid to independence, and ensuring its development using local resources.
