“I am also thanking the people for their votes especially Greater Accra, 2020 was not what we had hoped for, we lost some more seats , at least seven. But nevertheless, we have the substantial votes here so it is important that I also thank them for the expression of confidence. Even people who lost the elections are going round thanking people.”
The president’s comments have drawn some reactions from social media users.

JM was not defeated in the 2020 election. Your NPP party did. You only colluded with the army, EC and Supreme Court judges to change the outcome! Nana Addo himself is aware he didn't win elections 2020

Akufo-Addo on Cape Coast Harbor promise
Meanwhile, Akufo-Addo has apologised for the promise he made concerning the construction of a harbor in Cape Coast.
According to President Akufo-Addo, he made a mistake in his comments.
Explaining his apology while speaking on Accra-based PeaceFM, Akufo-Addo said they've had a rethink about the fact that a harbor cannot be constructed in Cape Coast whiles there is one present in Elmina and Takoradi.
