As far as the country’s energy situation is concerned, Mr Akufo-Addo said both gas production and oil discovery have been on the rise under his watch.

“I’m pleased to announce that gas production tripled from 100m to 300m cubic feet in the last year.

“After many years of almost giving up, it took an NPP government to discover oil in Ghana. 13 oil blocks were signed under the NDC but not a single one was developed. The first one signed under my government has led to the second biggest oil discovery in Ghana”.
