President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has thanked Ghanaians for voting for him in the December 7 elections.
To those who did vote for him, the president said, he has their interest at heart in everything he will do as president.
Speaking at the thanks giving ceremony of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) on Sunday December 27, Mr Akufo-Addo said “I want to thank the people of Ghana for maintaining their confidence in our leadership of the nation, especially the over 6.7 million who voted for me.
“But in singling them out, I also want to assure the 6.2 million who did not vote for me that I will have their interests at heart and mind in all that I do.”
He added “So today we have the opportunity to give him thanks for making it possible for this victory for the NPP and also for continuing to secure the peace of our country,” he said.
“I want to thank the clergy who have participated in today’s ceremony and for the clergy who, over the last four years, continue to pray for the peace of our nation and the success of our government.”
Several dignitaries and stalwarts of the NPP attended the event which took place at the forecourt of the State House in Accra.
In an earlier Christmas message he delivered to Ghanaians, Mr Akufo-Addo said “Our nation is united and at peace. We continue to be a beacon of democracy on the continent having conducted even in the midst of the pandemic a transparent, free, fair, credible and safe general election which have been recognized by both local and international observers.”
He added “Our economy is rebounding at a much faster rate than originally anticipated. We are ensuring that the basic elements of social justice that is wide access to quality education and good healthcare are being met. Food is affordable and it is in abundance in the markets,” he said.
“And we are seeing the transformation of the Ghanaian economy which will bring in its wake, jobs for our youth in our nation. We are not there yet, but there is now a much greater belief that with discipline, determination and hard work, we will make it.”
“Let us be a blessing on the lives of those in need, and through our actions bring a good cheer to all.
“I wish you all a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. May the Christmas season bring you joy and the New Year usher a new era of blessing and growth and for everyone you hold dear.”
