According to the president, individuals invested to help their businesses and they wholly depended on it for the progress of their business.
”Why do we make investments? I take my money to the bank if my business is going well, and expect to access it the day my business goes bad, that’s what we call investment”,….. Dr Obeng stressed on the Hot Morning Ride

In conclusion, Dr Obeng called on the government to relook at government key policies that drain money from its confers.
