In the morning: I would have increased the production and exportation of shea butter. According to a technical report by Dr. Peter Lovett, Ghana has the potential to produce 200,000 tonnes of shea butter but only 15,000 is produced.
According to the report, shea butter is a hot cake in the US market and a tonne is sold at $4,400.This means the exportation of 200,000 tonnes of shea butter will earn the country $880 million which is even more than the M C A amount.
In the afternoon :I would have ensured that equity becomes my watchword in the governance of the country and management of the economy by directing that HIPC funds should always be disbursed in accordance with the GPRS formula. I would not have hesitated to add Upper East and West to the list of the beneficiaries of the M C A.
In the evening:I would have refused to implement the Economic Partnership Agreements. This is because, according to the Chief Executive of Claydord Consult, Professor Cletus K. Dordunoo and other researchers, Ghana could lose over 3 trillion cedis if it implements the EPAs.
