I really don’t know why my writings all week centered on infrastructure being the key to building a nation but the world bank report on the best countries to do business in world made me realize why. The report vindicated president John Mahama and the NDC while exposing the lies of Nana Addo, Bawumia and the npp.
Without stepping in the classroom, one can easily know that to create employment one needs infrastructure. Even facebook which does not see a quarter of it’s users physically have an office where they operate from hence needed to build infrastructure to create employment for its employees before they began operating.
Let me not divert. The world bank report stated emphatically that Ghana is the 9th best place to do business in Africa and the 1st best place to do business in West Africa. Yes, u read me well. Ghana is the best place to do business in West Africa and not Nigeria which has the largest economy in Africa nor Ivory Coast. These 2 countries have been the reference points of Nana Addo and the npp whenever they want to lie that Ghana is in crisis. Maybe the think their npp represent Ghana so once they are in crisis due to the bad leadership of Nana Addo and Bawumia, it means Ghana is in crisis.
So how does the world bank report vindicate president John Mahama and expose Nana Addo, Bawumia and the npp??? Well, they claim the massive infrastructural development we are seeing nationwide under president Mahama is of no essence to building our nation but the infrastructural development we see around us is the secret behind Ghana being the best place to do business in West Africa. Let me tell you why.
The numerous massive road projects ongoing nationwide means businesses won’t have to waste productive hours in traffic again. This also means raw materials for production which can be accessed in the hinterlands can also be transported easily. This will surely attract This also means raw materials for production which can be accessed in the hinterlands can also be transported easily. because they are assured of high productivity which means more earning and more jobs to be created.
The huge number of schools being constructed from the Basic level to the tertiary level means creation of jobs by government but it does not end there. Private persons who have the aim of going into the production of education related goods and services now have so many avenues to exploit and they will create jobs in the process. Same applies to the plenty health facilities being constructed by government.
Do you know that airlines in Nigeria now fly to Ghana to buy fuel for their planes before embarking on their main journeys??? Hope you know see the sense in the expansion of our airports??? These airlines from Nigeria now see opportunities to exploit in Ghana. Their moving here will create jobs, thanks to the infrastructural development by President Mahama.
Let me not make you read plenty. It’s an obvious fact that contrary to the lies by Nana Addo, Bawumia and the npp that Ghana is in crisis, Ghana is rather the best place to do business in West Africa today. Nigeria is behind us and Ivory Coast is nowhere near us so Nana Addo, Bawumia and the npp should destroy their notes that deceived them that Nigeria and Ivory Coast are doing better than Ghana and infrastructure is of no essence and face the reality that Ghana has really developed muscles under president Mahama and the great NDC to the extent that it is the best place to do business in West Africa today.
I hope your doubts about the president’s promise to create 3 million new jobs when retained has been cleared now. He has built a solid foundation by improving our infrastructure which makes job creation very easy.
Catch you on the flip side, folks. God bless our homeland Ghana.
