In a new year message to the people of Ghana, he urged the nation to ensure that the 2020 presidential and parliamentary elections were held in a peaceful, transparent atmosphere and manner.
According to him, he is confident that Ghana will rise to the occasion in December 2020 and continue to be the beacon of democracy and hope for Africa.
“This year is another important year in our democratic journey. We would hold, in December, the eighth general election in the history of the 4th Republic.
“We all have a duty to conduct ourselves in such a manner that we have a free, fair and transparent election that will enable the Ghanaian people choose, in peace and serenity, the person and persons who will manage their affairs on their behalf,” President Akufo-Addo noted.
Nana Addo also wished Ghanaians a Happy New Year and promised to work hard as president of the republic to secure the future we all want.
In his New Year message, the President said: “On behalf of the government, the first lady, my wife Rebecca, my daughters, grandchildren and my family, I wish all Ghanaians a happy, prosperous New Year.”
YEN.com.gh earlier reported that Ghanaians have criticised Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia for suggesting that the Akufo-Addo led administration had tamed and stopped the cedi from depreciating against the dollar.
Dr. Bawumia, during the New Patriotic Party’s National Delegates Conference in Accra on December 22, 2019, said the Akufo-Addo government had drastically “tamed” the cedi from its high depreciation.
