President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has acknowledged his humanity in his effort to transform Ghana into a modern state, suggesting that mistakes will be inevitable.
“They will not be mistakes borne either out of ill-will or malice,” he explained.
“They will be mistakes because I am human and we all make mistakes as human beings.”
President Akufo-Addo made these remarks on Tuesday evening, when he met Ghanaians resident in Ethiopia.
The president has been in Addis Ababa since Saturday, January 28 for the 28th Ordinary Session of the African Union (AU).
He delivered the Vote of Thanks on Tuesday at the end of the Session, which he attended for the first time as President of Ghana.
Addressing Ghanaians at a meeting held later on Tuesday, President Akufo-Addo said he is bent on transforming the Ghanaian economy in order to get raving praise by posterity.
He said he will put his best foot forward in this quest.
“I am going to do my best. Hope my best is going to be good enough. I will make mistakes but I can promise you they will be genuine,” he said.
He revealed that a diasporan desk has been set up at his office to reach out to Ghanaians resident abroad.
“It is already being occupied by a diasporan from London. And he has begun the task to first of all compile the database of all of you.”
The president, who is almost a month old in office, called for the support of Ghanaians abroad in his effort to make Ghana great again.
“I am going to give it my best shot and I am asking you to help me and also put your shoulder to the wheel of Ghana so that we can give our people a better life that they are aspiring to.”
