The President of the Republic, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, has said his administration is on the path of fulfilling many of the promises made to the Ghanaian electorate, in the run up to the 2016 elections.
President Akufo-Addo indicated that, over the last two and a half years in office, his government has, indeed, fulfilled a considerable number of the promises made.
He made this known while addressing members of the Ghanaian community resident in France on Monday, July 8, 2019, as part of his official visit to that country.
“We are 2½ years into a 4-year mandate, and what I continue to insist and tell the people of Ghana is that, by the end of my mandate, they will see that I came to tell them the truth about what I wanted to do. I didn’t come to deceive anybody,” the President said.
He said he knows that his opponents would be saying something else, but that is their right.
"God willing, on the 7th December 2020, the day of accountability, we will know who is telling the truth,” he said.
President Akufo-Addo made these comments on the back of the announcement made by the Assembly of Heads of State and Government of the African Union that Ghana has been chosen as host country for the Secretariat of the African Continental Free Trade Area (AfCFTA).
Meanwhile, Information gathered by YEN.com.gh have it that the president has kicked against moves by parliament to use $200m for a new chamber.
According to a report seen by YEN.com.gh on Ghanaweb, the president says he is focused on more top priority projects for the country, hence his rejection of the proposal.
The president is reportedly bent on improving Ghana’s roads, the education and training sector, agriculture, water and housing, rural development, and many more, cited the report.
