Some 2,400 Ghanaians sampled for a survey by governance think tank, Ghana Centre for Democratic Development (CDD-Ghana), have revealed their four areas of utmost importance in the pursuit of national development.
According to a survey conducted by CDD-Ghana between May and June this year, respondents say education, infrastructure, healthcare, and agriculture – in order of importance – are the four priority areas that government should increase spending in.
The rest are industrial transformation through 1D1F, security, energy supply, cash transfer through LEAP and sanitation.
On policy priorities needing the government’s attention, respondents listed unemployment, infrastructure (roads) and education as top three – in that order.
The rest are management of the economy, health, poverty reduction among others.
The survey adopted face-to-face interviews for all the samples drawn from the urban and rural areas across all 16 regions.
