Ihedioha, World Bank Chief, Advocate Growth
Ending poverty and economic backwardness and installing a regime of economic prosperity in a sustainable way, remain the go-to, for Africa, with specific references to Ghana, Nigeria and other economically challenged African nations.
A former deputy speaker of the house of representatives, Hon. Emeka Ihedioha and the World Bank Country Director for Ghana, Mr. Henry Keyari were unanimous in their views that poverty and economic backwardness remain Africa’s biggest challenge even as some countries of the continent continued to celebrate decades of political but questionable economic independence.
Both spoke at the launch of the 2018 edition of the Institute of Financial and Economic Journalism (IFEJ) Flamingo Awards for Business and Financial Journalism in Accra, Ghana during the week.
Ihedioha however remained positive in the midst of what is on ground: “It is true that the level of growth the world expected from us is still far from what is on ground today. But we are coming. Nigeria is coming. Ghana is coming. Africa is coming’’.
“Many of you are already aware of the need for Africa to do more in order to overcome poverty and economic backwardness which has continued to torment us as a people- inspite of the abundant natural resources-enough to make us rule and dominate the world”, said Ihedioha who spoke as the special guest at the event.
