Ghanaian President says Nigeria should lead Africa’s growth – Ghanaian President, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, has called on Nigeria to lead Africa’s industrialisation process.
He said Nigeria’s resources and population place her in a vantage position to grow the economy of the continent through industrialisation.
He was Guest Speaker at the 46th Annual General Meeting of the Manufacturers’ Association of Nigeria (MAN) in Lagos.
Akufo-Addo urged that stock is taken of the prevailing policy framework, while measuring them against the current industrialisation, to determine if there is a need to deepen the policy initiative.
He said the continent’s biggest challenge was her inability to transform the abundant natural resources into opportunities for the creation of jobs and wealth.
