Ghanaian president assures investors ahead of polls

Xinhua, November 15, 2016 Adjust font size:

Ghanaian President John Dramani Mahama assured businesses and investors here on Monday that the country will not "blow up" despite the competitive nature of the upcoming polls in December.

He assured them of a stable and peaceful business environment ahead of next month's general election for which he is seeking re-election.

"One of the things which have made Ghana an attractive place for doing business is our stability and our democracy and the respect for rule of law,"the president stated.

On the economic slowdown across the world, the president maintained that Ghana was fortunate to have gone through the crisis way ahead of the rest of the world, adding that necessary measures were put in place to contain any further deterioration.

"As a result of that, we started structural reforms at the right time. So you notice that our economy is showing some more resilience in this period when everybody is facing economic headwinds," he said. Endit
