In Akufo-Addo words: “If we stop being beggars and spend African money inside the continent, Africa will not need to ask for respect from anyone, we will get the respect we deserve. If we make it prosperous as it should be, respect will follow.”

Mr. President made the remarks during the opening of the US-Africa Leaders’ Summit in Washington DC on Tuesday 14th, December, 2022.

Mr Akufo-Addo urged greater solidarity among Africans to address shared aspirations.

Nana Akufo-Addo’s remarks came on the day that the International Monetary Fund agreed to give Ghana a $3bn (£2.4bn) loan to alleviate an unprecedented economic downturn in the West African country.

At the moment, Ghana is facing historic inflation of more than 40% and a collapse in the value of its currency – the cedi – economic difficulties exacerbated since the Russian invasion of Ukraine.
