A congratulatory message from CENAB

Dr. Akwasi Achampong

With a joyous heart, and on behalf of the Coalition to Elect Nana Addo & Bawumia (CENAB) group, I congratulate the president-elect, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, his running mate, Alhaji Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia and the NPP party for a good fight fought.

The pessimists, detractors, naysayers and the brute but clueless political opponent who doubted the capabilities of Nana Akufo-Addo and the NPP to win political power have been put to shame by larger Ghanaian population who yearned for change.

I very much congratulate all CENAB members (CENABIANS) for their dedication and commitment to the fight that has delivered our dear nation from the deadly jaws of incompetence, brazen corruption, and nepotism. Our long walk through the cities, town, villages and hamlets canvassing support for Nana Addo and the NPP has not been in vain. It has provided results that we will always be proud of as contributed. And an unprecedented presidential and parliamentary results in the political history of the fourth republic for that matter.

Unlike other political groups that fade out after an electioneering season, the CENAB group is going nowhere! CENABIANS are staying put to help the Akufo-Addo administration achieve its promises to the Ghanaians. The group looks forward to being a pro-government group which will complement the incoming government’s efforts to make sure that governance of our nation is on course. We also look forward to broadening our base at home and abroad to make CENAB a much bigger global political movement than it is now.

CENAB will continue to work harder to move Ghana forward and make it a better place to live. We continue to hold the underpinning belief of our formation that an Akufo-Addo – Bawumia leadership is the safest pair of hands to tackle the systemic corruption, political cronyism, and mismanagement of the economy under the outgoing leadership of John Mahama and the NDC. CENAB trust an Akufo-Addo led government to judiciously manage the resources of the country to create the enabling platform for Ghanaians to develop their God-given potentials for the development of themselves and the nation at large. And it is this belief and trust that strengthened and motivated us to work harder for victory.

A new dawn has broken in our mother! The “Change; An Agenda for Jobs” train is about to set out.

To CENAB members both home (Kumasi, Bekwai, Tema, Cape Coast, Tamale, Bolga, Wa, Takoradi) and abroad (USA, UK, Canada), I say ayekooooo! You did a great job. Well fought; well won!!

God bless CENAB! God bless the NPP!! God bless our homeland Ghana!!!
