Former President John Dramani Mahama has promised to run a transparent government.

He says he will not conceal from the public the true economic data such as on the national budget, debt, and net international reserves.

Delivering his formal acceptance speech at the University of Development Studies ( UDS) on Monday, May 15 after his victory in the presidential primaries of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) on Saturday, May 13, he said “Together with my team we will enhance investor confidence in our country to attract domestic and foreign investors, especially in the manufacturing industry. This we will do by being transparent and not concealing economic data such as the budget deficit public debt, and our net international reserves.”

He further promised to restore the licenses of the banks that, in his view, were unjustifiably collapsed during the recapitalization exercise undertaken by the Bank of Ghana (BoG).

“We shall promote robust, local participation in our banking and financial, telecommunication, tourism, mining and agric and manufacturing sectors to grow our economy and create sustainable employment for our youths.

“We will restore indigenous Ghanaian investments in the finance and banking sector and we will create a tier banking system that will serve various segments of the market.

“We will give the opportunity to experience banking hands who were laid off needlessly to secure their careers once more and move away from the menial jobs that they were compelled to take.

“As far as practicable the banking licenses that were unjustly canceled by this government will be restored,” he said.
