A new Kente cloth has been named after president Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo. The cloth which was woven by the Adanwomase Kente Weavers and Sellers Association in the Ashanti Region and named ‘Oseadeeyo Akufo-Addo’, is in honour of President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.
The association says this honour was to give due recognition to the President for fulfilling three of his major campaign promises — the introduction of the free senior high school policy, the restoration of teacher and nursing trainee allowances and the institutionalization of the Office of the Special Prosecutor to fight corruption.
Making the presentation during a call on the President at the Jubilee House yesterday, the Secretary of the association, Kwame Nyame, expressed the hope that the gesture would encourage the President to fulfill the rest of his campaign promises to the Ghanaian people.
The secretary, Mr Nyame, also said the Kente weaving industry was a viable source of employment for the youth of the country and, in that regard, called on the government to pay considerable attention to the industry under the One-district, One-factory policy.
President Akufo-Addo after receiving the honour gave an assurance that his administration would give the Kente industry all the attention it deserved.
The president also said campaign messages by the New Patriotic Party during the 2016 election campaign was not mere promises but things they are bent on fulfilling.
Nana Akufo-Addo also said he together with his administration, would work relentlessly to achieve for the benefit of all Ghanaians.
