Speaking at the maiden edition of the Results Fair held in Accra on Tuesday, January 14, 2020, the NPP leader said his party and government has achieved a lot in the last three years in office.
“Having achieved all these significant milestones, even in the midst of the difficulties we met, I am hopeful that the Ghanaian people would reward my party with another resounding victory in 2020."

He added that his party will not be complacent. “…we will work hard for victory, regardless of the fact that ‘One Good Term Deserves Another’. We need four more years to do more,” he said.
He touched on some of the important achievements of his government in the last three years; he noted that he inherited a dire macroeconomic situation but currently things are far better.
“The banking sector was weighed down by a plethora of poorly capitalised, and weak and insolvent institutions, with potentially grave consequences for the entire financial system. Agricultural and industrial activities were down.
“Unemployment, especially of the youth, was widespread, against a background of low incomes and high prices,” he said.
Nana Addo also assured the gathering present at the event that the programs and policies his government is undertaking will revive and turn things around.
He said it will improve the health and social wellbeing of citizens, create a society of opportunities for all, and help put Ghana onto the path of progress and prosperity.

In conclusion, President Akufo-Addo said, the Results Fair is a demonstration and appreciation by his government that a lot more needs to be done to achieve the Ghana that we want.
“It is also an indication of our resolve to secure a better future for all Ghanaians. Although a lot has been achieved over the past three years, there is still more work to be done to transform our country.”
