President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has said that the next twenty-two months of his mandate will be focused on restoring the economy his government had before Covid and the Russian invasion of Ukraine to the period of rapid growth.
Mr Akufo-Addo said it is a solemn pledge he is making to Ghanaians, and one which he is determined to fulfil.
“Before I take my seat, I want to inform you that, in fulfilment of the announcement I made at last year’s Founders’ Day Celebration, I will, on Tuesday, 14th March 2023, confer national honours on some citizens of our country, who distinguished themselves in the fight against the pandemic of COVID-19.
“By their actions, they helped protect and preserve our population, and won global acclaim for Mother Ghana,” he said at the 66th Independence Day celebration on Monday March 6.
He added “I will, also, on that day, express the nation’s gratitude to the legal team of men and women who were charged with ensuring that the maritime boundary dispute with Ghana’s immediate, western neighbour, the Republic of Côte d’Ivoire, ended favourably for Ghana, thus ensuring that our western maritime resources, including their potential oil and gas reserves, remained legitimately in our possession.
“I am sure we all saw the three (3) helicopters belonging to the Police Service joining this morning’s celebration. It is the first time in our nation’s history that the Police Service is employing the use of helicopters to improve its operational efficiency.
“The acquisition of these helicopters is to honour the pledge I made at the 2019 end of year Police WASSA, and I assure the officers, men and women of the Service of Government’s continued support in helping them to discharge effectively their mandate.”
