Trust me to get Ghana back to work – Akufo-Addo

Flagbearer of the opposition NPP, Nana Akufo-Addo has made a clarion call to Ghanaians to entrust in his care, the administration of the country which he assessed as being in a comatose state.

He was confident he has the team that would bring back Ghana’s lost glory as an industrious state capable of developing without relying on loans.

“Trust me and my team to get Ghana back to work,” Nana Akufo-Addo declared in Accra on Monday.

He was delivering what the party called the “Real State of the Nation Address” to apparently counter what the NPP believes were false declarations in President Mahama’s State of the Nation Address to Parliament Thursday.

According to the NPP flagbearer, Ghana is endowed with so many natural resources and human capital, and could not fathom the country’s current of state of development, which he contended is nothing to write home about.

With the abundance of great resources in Ghana, Nana Akufo-Addo maintained that bad leadership and bad policies are the bane of the country’s progress.


As the country goes to the polls in November to elect a president, he prophesied “Change is coming,” which was received with thunderous applauds from his audience at the College of Physicians and Surgeon’s auditorium.

“The Ghanaian people have a rich and compelling history. We led the African peoples in their struggle for liberation from imperialism and colonialism. After initial decades of predictable turbulence in the post-independence era, the determined struggles of our people for democracy are today leading us to build the most admired system of peaceful, democratic governance on the African continent.

“Our name is synonymous with many of the highlights of Africa’s history. And so it shall continue.

“Fellow Ghanaians, join me and my team to get Ghana back to work. Ghana has no place among the ranks of struggling nations. Join us to put Ghana in its rightful place. The change is coming, be part of that change and arise for change.”
