“There is something happening in the economy; you would recall that recently Fitch has downgraded countries like South Africa, Brazil, etc. and yet Ghana maintains its credit ratings. It tells you that something is happening to the economy. It is not true that businesses are folding up to go to Cote D’Ivoire, it is just a political talk, anytime I hear such claims, the question I always ask those who make that claim is, they should provide the name of a single company that has left Ghana for Cote D’Ivoire, there is none.” John Mahama Revealed in an interview with Twin City radio in Takoradi in the Western region
“Ghana’s economy is the second largest economy in West Africa after Nigeria, Cote D’Ivoire is third. In my second term and by 2020, it is our plan to ensure that we run a balanced economy,” he stated.
