Ghana president-elect says aims for double-digit economic growth

ACCRA, Dec 21 (Reuters) - Ghana’s president-elect Nana Akufo-Addo on Wednesday said his economic priorities are to restore stability, cut taxes and interest rates and spur double-digit growth driven by the private sector.

Akufo-Addo was making his first comments on the economy since defeating President John Mahama in a Dec. 7 election. His New Patriotic Party government is due to be sworn in on Jan. 7. (Reporting by Kwasi Kpodo; Editing by Matthew Mpoke Bigg)
