Ghana Beyond Aid fight for economic freedom – Bawumia
The Vice President of Ghana, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia has said, “decades after Ghana and the rest of Africa fought for political freedom, President Nana Addo Dankwah Akufo-Addo is engaged in a fight for economic freedom, which is captured in his vision of a Ghana beyond aid. We hope this eventually leads to an economically-emancipated Africa, an Africa Beyond Aid.”
