I can’t continue to take the blame while you hide in the shadows – Akufo-Addo to state-owned institutions

President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has criticized the heads of state-owned institutions for their poor performance. He expressed his displeasure that he and his ministerial appointees are often blamed for the country’s economic struggles, while the responsibility of these state entities is overlooked. The president urged these heads to step up and take responsibility for making their agencies more visible in Ghana’s development process, rather than being a financial burden. He emphasized that they should be the major drivers of the economy, and should no longer stay in the shadows. The president was speaking at the maiden State Interest and Governance (SIGA) annual stakeholder meeting, held in Kwahu Abetifi in the Eastern Region, where he also lamented that state enterprises contribute less than 5 percent of Ghana’s Gross Domestic Product (GDP). He concluded by urging them to work together for the benefit of the nation.
