Akufo-Addo beats Mahama when it comes to peace - Chairman Wontumi

The Ashanti regional Chairman of the New Patriotic Party has praised President Akufo-Addo and Dr. Bawumia for stamping their authority as leaders and ensuring that Ghana has become the most peaceful country within West Africa.

According to him though the new report might despise the opposition National Democratic Congress, it has become clearer that the world recognizes the effort President Akufo-Addo has put in to make his territory a safe haven within the Sub-Sahara region.

“This year's Global Peace Index does prove that despite the atrocities being fuelled by the NDC in Ghana, President Akufo-Addo is better at managing and making the country a safer place than Mahama. The NDC won’t be happy sharing this story and enviable feat by Nana Akufo-Addo and Dr. Bawumia, but I want to tell them that whether they like it or not, the current President is far better than their candidate in anything they can think about”, Chairman Wontumi noted.

Just recently, the President of the Republic, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, described Ghana as the safest country in West Africa, and, is, therefore, asking Africans in the Diaspora to come, explore and experience Ghana in this Year of Return.

Addressing the House of Assembly of St. Vincent and the Grenadines on Wednesday, 12th June, 2019, President Akufo-Addo stated that, “in today’s world, where sadly crime and terror have become part of everyday life, I can say that Ghana is certainly the safest country in the West African region, and remains one of the few places on earth where we are not embarrassed to see ourselves as each other’s keeper.”

Ghana was ranked higher than UK, USA, France and several other countries in this year’s Global Peace index. Ghana placed 44th out of the 163 countries that were examined.

The report measured the 'peacefulness' of 163 countries with a range of measures including military spending and deaths from conflict and terrorism, as well as an estimated economic cost of violence.
