President Nana  Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has taken his critics to the gutters with a reply that although his government inherited a hugh debts from the previous administration,  he  has already put in place many measures to create jobs and drive development within the last six months.

“We’ve been here for six months…we didn’t meet money in the coffers. We met debt and debts,” the President said.

Addressing a durbar of chiefs and residents of Tarkwa in the Western Region Tuesday, the President said critics of his government speak as though he has been in power for more than five years.

According to him, he is not the type of leader to cower in the face of challenges, President Akufo-Addo told the people.

I am not afraid of debt [because] if you have good plans and the men, debts can become opportunities for money making, he said in Twi.

The President has made public the debts former President John Mahama’s government left behind since he was sworn in in January.

President Akufo-Addo told lawmakers in February 2017, the previous administration left behind an estimated GHS122 billion debt.

“As of the beginning of 2009, Ghana’s total debt stock was GHS9.5 billion [but] by the end of 2016, the debt had ballooned to GHS122 billion,” he said.

Although the debt situation could derail his government’s many “ambitious projects” to develop the country, the President said he is committed to his 2016 campaign promises.

President Akufo-Addo said the free senior high school program will start in September 2017 as scheduled.

He said he was insulted when he talked about the free SHS with critics suggesting it was for votes. He was quick to add that God is not asleep,’ the President said, adding his promises were made from a clean heart.

I know what I am coming to do,’ he said.
