Member of Parliament for Pusiga Laadi Ayamba have said the much trumpeted Ghana beyond aid if it is to manifest then Ghana must look within and take advantage of all resources first and add value to them.

According to the Pusiga legislator, Ghanaians must crave for what is produced locally, than always wanting goods produced outside the country.

Again as African countries we need to remove the artificial boundaries and trade among ourselves, African leaders should unit and put off the boundaries for business to boom, this would help Africa a lot.

She further noted that, there are so many questions than answers when it comes to Ghana beyond aid, “when go to the market today the goods that are most petronise are goods imported like vegetables than those grown in our back yard, we rather prefer these foreign vegetables at malls”, she lamented.

If in our own country we do not appreciate the food that we grow, how would we be talking about Ghana beyond aid, we need to up left our economy if we are able to feed ourselves, she remarked.

Miss Ayamba lamented over government borrowing twenty-seven billion (GHc 27,000,000, 000) Ghana cedis within 2017 and 2018, “we cannot go around borrowing within this short period so much and wondering how we can run away from debt.”

“We were told the money is in this country during the 2016 Presidential and parliamentary election which is true and a fact, if we have gold diamond why do we go borrow within this two years up to 27billion Ghana cedis borrowing continues to pull Ghana down”.
