Against the backdrop of the raging Russia-Ukraine war, the President of the African Development Bank, Dr. Akinwumi Adesina called on African governments to be prepared for the inevitability of the global food crisis. This was followed by warnings from 3 International Institutions – the Food and Agriculture Organization FAO, the International Fund for Africa Development IFAD, the World Bank and the
International Monetary Fund IMF respectively. Already, Africans are at the receiving end of climate change. Food, as one of the basic needs of man should be given priority attention by governments no matter the complexity, more so in Africa with uncontrolled population growth rate. Across Africa, there is a price hike in virtually all food commodities. It behooves African governments to brace up for the challenge of the food crisis.
In his 2023 budget presentation, President Akufo Addo of Ghana announced new economic plans designed to take Ghana to the next level. The stringent policies will among other things, prune down the cost of government services. But mixed reactions have trailed the new economic plans in Ghana society Read details of this in the magazine.
Also, the Ghanaian Leaders have enjoined African Leaders to stop asking for Loans from the West so that the continent can earn global respect and will change the poor perceptions that the developed countries have about the continent. What is important is that taking Loans is not bad, what is in doubt is the ability of African leaders to channel the loans appropriately for the benefit of the citizens.
