Help the less privileged – Akufo-Addos Christmas message to Ghanaians

President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has urged Ghanaians to extend a helping hand to the less privileged in society as they celebrate Christmas today.

In his Christmas message broadcast, the President said Ghanaians must support the government’s agenda of creating wealth for all to improve the living conditions of the citizenry.

“Together we can build a progressive and prosperous Ghana whose citizens live in harmony and security in fulfilment of the dream of the founding fathers of our nation. Let’s all celebrate the season safely and responsibly and remember to help those who are less fortunate than ourselves. Let each one of us do our bit to help feed those who are hungry and offer comfort to those in need.

“Let’s take the time together, to love, listen, learn from each other and remember that with the help of God we can overcome any challenge and achieve any future of which we can dream of. I wish you all a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year.”

Ghanaians join billions of people across the world to celebrate the annual festival commemorating the birth of Jesus Christ, observed most commonly on December 25 as a religious and cultural celebration.
