As the Minority in Ghana's Parliament whine and whimper over nothing, it is emerging that Africa’s likely star economic performer this year isn’t in much doubt, according to all three of the international lenders focusing on the continent.

The World Bank’s optimism about prospects for Ghana’s economy proved a tonic for Accra-traded stocks: the country’s benchmark index sat atop the world as January drew to a close, raising hopes for investors, businesses and rank and file Ghanaians, already having a feel of the social protection programmes that government is putting in place at the grass roots.

An audit conducted by the Nana Akufo-Addo administration has revealed a whopping sum of GHC131, 958,407.51 could have gone to the dogs had the baton of governance not changed in December 2016.

The Finance Minister, Ken Ofori-Atta, has told Parliament that the 2018 ‘Adwuma’ budget has a huge credibility, giving hope to the nation and geared towards job and wealth creation.

Vice President Mahamudu Bawumia has indicated that the determination of the Nana Akufo-Addo led government to move the country beyond aid is hinged on trade and investment.
