“There are people from this region, some of whom are well known to you here in Amedzofe, who serve in sensitive parts of my government and influence decisions on a daily basis. I may have my own failings as we all do, but being a tribalist is not one of them," President Akufo-Addo said.
Addressing the gathering at Amedzofe, in the Ho West District, the President stated that if there is one person who recognises and appreciates the indivisibility of Ghana, it is him.
“In my time as president, development has been distributed equitably to all parts of the country, and the impact of our policies has been felt by all. So, I want to assure all of you that neither the NPP nor I have any plan whatsoever to bring division to any part of the country,” he said.
The president continued, the NPP does not have an ethnic agenda against any group or grouping in the country.
Recounting again the circumstances that have led to the deployment of soldiers along the country’s borders, President Akufo-Addo stressed again that the Volta Region was not and has not been singled out for any special military operation.
The president noted that their presence is to guard against potential terrorist attacks on our shores and to prevent the importation of the coronavirus into our country.
YEN.com.gh earlier reported that the National Youth Organizer of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Henry Nana Boakye, called on Ghanaians to always remember President Nana Akufo-Addo in prayers for his exemplary leadership.
According to Nana Boakye, President Akufo-Addo needs the support and prayers of every Ghanaian to do more Ghana.
In a radio discussion monitored by YEN.com.gh on Peace FM on Monday, August 31, the man who is affectionately called Nana B, opined the NPP leader needs to be given another four-year term to continue with the good job he is doing for the country.
