He told Starr FM: "Signal in terms of pronouncement , signal in terms of programs or initiatives that it has taken and signals in terms of certain concrete actions that the government has taken.

"If you look at the signal, you can predict whether ultimately, we will get good outcomes.

"So if you look at this government in particular, take the area of agriculture for instance, they signal very strongly that they want to revamp the agric sector, in fact in the cocoa, they are talking about getting back the one million tonnes a year every soon.

"This idea of planting for food and jobs is a very interesting idea and it  is a strong signal. Let us monitor over time to see how it evolves.

"And if you go to the other sectors, they have given strong signal. so for me my judgement is based on the signal that we have seen so far and on that score, I thing the government has done very well."

President Akufo-Addo is marking the 100th day of his presidency after a stormy start in which he promise to improve the economy and also called for unity among Ghanaians.

The National Democratic Congress in its assessment of the president said he has been a "disaster."

According to its National Organiser, Kofi Adams, president Akufo-Addo has veered off from the trajectory he inherited from his predecessor, John Mahama.
