Ghana’s President-elect Nana Akufo-Addo has reiterated he will fulfill all the promises he made during the electioneering, but admits the “task ahead is huge.”
Speaking during a visit to the Asantehene Otumfuo Osei Tutu II on Wednesday, Nana Addo said he will need the assistance of everyone to succeed.
“Before campaigning in the Ashanti Region, I came here to seek the blessing of the Asantehene. Exactly a week ago, Ghanaians voted, after which the NPP emerged victorious,” the former Foreign Affairs Minister said.
“I have, therefore, come here this afternoon after the NPP’s victory to once again seek your blessing as I lead the country. I have also come to assure you that I will fulfil all the promises I made to Ghanaians prior to the elections.”
“The task ahead is huge and so I have come here to seek the blessing of the Asantehene to help me govern this country to the benefit of the entire nation,” he added.
Mr Akufo-Addo was accompanied by Vice-president-elect Dr Mahamudu Bawumia, Minority Leader Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu, former Trade and Industry Minister Alan Kyerematen, NPP acting National Chairman Freddie Blay, National Women’s Organiser Otiko Afisah Djaba, acting General Secretary John Boadu and newly-elected and re-elected members of parliament.
