Bridging the gap between the poor and the rich; a good governance- Ing Political Prince

Ghana as a country has its problems. Power, sanitation, traffic, healthcare, debt, currency fluctuations, climate change, and patchy levels of governance. Under the good leadership of Nana Akufo Addo and the NPP administration, Ghana has seen great improvements in all these sectors. Ghana is now recorded to have an adequate power supply, quality health care, and a good standing and not shaky economy.

In Ghana, poverty is increasingly concentrated in rural regions where most low-income families rely on cocoa farming for their livelihoods. Cocoa is the largest export crop in Ghana, and given its growing global demand, it holds significant potential for lifting many families out of extreme poverty. It was the good leadership of the NPP administration to initiate and implement the almighty Free Senior High School Policy under the Ministry of Education.

Poverty is not only a major social problem in Ghana but the rest of the continent. The free Senior High School Policy has helped bridge the gap between the rich and poor in Ghana. This has been attributed to good governance and also to make every single citizen of the country acquire secondary education as its the minimum qualification for the job market.

Ghana’s economy has historically been regarded as one of the drivers for West Africa. Today the country remains highly dependent on the export of primary commodities such as gold, cocoa, and oil, leaving the economy vulnerable to potential slowdowns in the global market and commodity price shocks. One of the fastest-growing economies in the world in 2011, Ghana’s rate of growth slowed to 2.2% in 2015, but rebounded to 8.1% (real) in 2017 and remained robust at 5.6% in 2018 (using the country’s newly rebased GDP). While inflation has declined to 9.0% in January 2019 from a peak of 19.2% in March 2016, the cedi remains susceptible to global and domestic risks, depreciating by about 7% at the end of February 2019.

The Free Secondary High School (Free SHS) education policy in Ghana was a government initiative introduced in September 2017. The policy’s origination began as part of the President’s presidential campaign during Ghana’s 2016 election period and has become an essential part of Ghana’s educational system. The policy’s core themes of access, equity, and equality fulfil the United Nations modified Sustainable Development Goals.
A gap reduction has formed in university graduates who acquire degrees without the achievement of secondary studies. Previously, 70% of high school students that desired government employee positions by the age of 25 was realistically achieved by only 6% of that percentage. Through the policy, the labour market has expanded in diverse fields with more educated individuals to progress the nation’s development. With this, there is the need to give Nana Akufo Addo and the NPP administration another term to deliver on its mandates.

For a better tomorrow for your children born and unborn, let’s keep on believing in the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) in securing a better tomorrow for our children.
