After President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo announced to Ghanaians that: On Wednesday, 19th May 2021, Ghana received one hundred and seventy million euros (€170 million) from the European Investment Bank (EIB) for the establishment of a new national bank, 'Development Bank Ghana' (DBG), they have divided over his social media post.
According to Mr President, the DBG is one of the pillars of Ghana's GH¢100 billion Ghana CARES 'Obaatampa' Project, and the programme to revitalise the Ghanaian economy, following the onset of COVID-19.
He detailed that the program will stimulate growth in the private sector, and aid in government's programme to transform the structure of the Ghanaian economy.
However, President Nana Akufo-Addo stated that the Minister for Foreign Affairs and Regional Integration, Hon. Shirley Ayorkor Botchwey, signed on behalf of Ghana, with Dr. Werner Hoyer, President of EIB, signing on behalf of the Bank.
After it has been known to Ghanaians, they have reacted massively to Nana Akufo-Addo's post and causes massive stir.
Ghanaians are divided over the good news President Nana Akufo-Addo brought to Ghana again. Some of them stated that it is good news but what is other banks in the country doing to help the nation. Some people fully supported President Nana Akufo-Addo on this.
Someone said: Am sure the money is a gift but not a loan, Good president your present alone can gift us huge money for our country. Thank you.
Someone too said: Very disappointing. So what's the purpose of Bank of Ghana? Do we need another bank when our resources are been depleted by foreigners? Where are we making the money to be saved in these banks?
Someone praises Nana Akufo-Addo by saying: Mr. President, well done.
Please respectfully, I would like to remind you of your promise to build 88 district hospitals.
Please we are patiently waiting for the sod cutting and eventual commissioning of those hospitals. Please thank you for the audience.
Another person also said that: Is this the Ghana Beyond Aid or I don't understand English 😃 😃 😄 Ahhhhh.
Misplaced of priority nkoaa. What is Bank of Ghana, Agricultural Development Bank, National investment Bank doing.? can't these banks also help in stabilizing the economy. Is it necessary at this time to build a development bank whiles we already have one. A sign of a failed government 😢.
