We have not turned our backs on Ghanaians, We feel their plight – Bawumia


May 4, 2022 ,

Vice President Dr. Mahmudu Bawumia has stated that the administration will not abandon its attempts to resurrect the country’s economy.

According to Dr. Bawumia, the government recognizes Ghanaians’ suffering and has taken multiple initiatives in several sectors of the economy, including education, infrastructure, and agriculture, to ease the hardships that residents face.

He spoke at the Black Star Square, where he was among hundreds of Muslims celebrating the start of the new month of Shawwal after a successful fasting period.

“In general, we have demonstrated that we understand and empathize with Ghanaians’ suffering, and we have not turned our backs on people in need.”

“We demonstrated that throughout the financial crisis, during the Covid-19 crisis, by providing free water and electricity to households, businesses, dealers, and entrepreneurs, as well as business assistance measures,” he remarked on Tuesday.

“The administration continues to display significant devotion to Ghanaians’ needs,” he continued.

Meanwhile, Osmanu Nuhu Sharubutu, the Chief Imam, was particularly interested in the government’s vow to invest in Islamic education and provide scholarships to Zongo children.

Sheik Aremeyaw Shaibu, speaking on his behalf, said the Chief Imam is looking forward to the first sod-cutting of the government’s planned Islamic Schools in Zongos around the country.

“I’m looking forward to the day when they cut the sod.”

In response, Dr. Bawumia stated that the government has carefully adopted a plan to address the needs of Muslim communities around the country, which is currently being implemented.

“The Zongo Development Fund has recently finished 200 projects, many of which have been commissioned, and many more will be commissioned soon.” The development of the model Senior High Schools will begin this year, insha Allah.”
