We’ve Not Abandoned Ghana Beyond Aid Agenda – Government

The government has refuted claims that it abruptly abandoned its campaign motto, “Ghana Beyond Aid,” by turning to the IMF for financial assistance in the face of the country’s dire economic situation.

According to the Sustainable Development Goals, President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo had a vision for Ghana called “Ghana Beyond Aid” to create a country where everyone has access to food, water, sanitation, and decent housing as well as to education, training, and meaningful job (SDGs).

Instead of providing a list of projects to be carried out, it concentrated on values, attitude, and attitudinal changes that provide the conditions for pursuing progress.

The President’s goal with this project was to eventually make Ghana an aid-free nation.

However, there are claims that Ghana Beyond Aid is just a slogan for political expediency given that the nation has once again gone to the IMF for economic assistance and that ongoing borrowing has increased Ghana’s overall debt stock to almost GH391.9 billion as of March 2022.

In response to these allegations, the administration insisted that it was still working toward a Ghana Beyond Aid.

According to a statement from the Ministry of Finance, the only reason Ghana is returning to the IMF is because the world has experienced significant shocks that have also affected the nation.

The statement read, “Countries turn to the IMF for assistance when they experience difficulties and need the necessary help to carry out its economic programme but lack the appropriate funding.”

The statement said that an IMF program is anticipated to allow the nation some breathing room to pursue more significant structural reforms that will eventually aid Ghana in achieving the goals outlined in the Ghana Beyond Aid charter.
