The Nana Akufo Addo-led government has indicated its resolve to energise the entrepreneurial spirit within every Ghanaian to help them earn a decent living and improve the quality of their lives.

Finance Minister Ken Ofori-Atta disclosed this on Wednesday when he presented the 2018 Budget and Fiscal Policy in Parliament.

According to him, government has managed to fix the economic challenges that were bedeviling the country; hence the unemployed will be introduced in entrepreneurial skills.

“For us, the fight against poverty and unemployment is not optional; it's a national security issue. It is time for Ghanaians to arise and build.”

“Thankfully President Akufo-Addo came into office with a positive mindset and inspired all of us to see the invisible, feel the intangible and achieve the impossible.”

“I am happy to note that we have turned the economy around and our policies are yielding results and restoring hope and bringing relief to Ghanaians,” he said.
