For his second Independence Day speech as president, Akufo-Addo will touch on an array of issues including Ghana Beyond Aid policy, the increasing crime rates in the country, corruption, free SHS program, as well as other pertinent topics in the interest of the nation.

However, he reiterated more on the common good of building a prosperous nation with emphasis on Ghana Beyond Aid.

In the statement, President Akufo-Addo stressed mismanagement, corruption and high fiscal deficits have become the hallmarks of the economy, which is financed through borrowing and foreign aid.

According to the president to get to a Ghana Beyond Aid, “we will have to effectively harness our own resources and creatively and efficiently deploy them for rapid economic and social transformation. This will require hard work, enterprise, creativity, and a consistent fight against corruption in public life. It will also require that we break from a mentality of dependency and adopt a confident can-do spirit, fueled by love for our dear country, Ghana.”
