President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo

President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has urged Ghanaians to have faith in his government’s ability to redefine the economic fortunes of the country.

Speaking at the 17th General Assembly of the Presbyterian Church of Ghana at Kwahu-Abetifi in the Eastern Region on Saturday, August 19, 2017, he said, “We can together as a people build a new Ghanaians civilisation where there’s fair opportunity for all in health and education, where hard work, enterprise and creativity are rewarded.”

In view of the above, he expressed his commitment to lead the nation rebuilding agenda where there will be abundance of jobs for the jobless; a dignified retirement benefits for the elderly and a safety net for the vulnerable.

Moving forward, he said he envisions to relinquish a country where governance is honest and devoid of corruption and rule of law as its backbone.

“The Founders of our nation chose a motto, Freedom and Justice as our national motto because they envisaged us as a shining example to the black peoples of the world of what a free dedicated, enterprising Ghanaian people can do to build a society which will be equal to any, anywhere on the surface of the planet.

“I’m deeply influenced by this vision and make God bless our homeland Ghana and make her great and strong,” the President noted.
