We’ve demonstrated we can bring progress and prosperity to Ghanaians – Akufo-Addo
Despite the current struggles of the Ghanaian economy and its impact on the larger populace, President Akufo-Addo is of the view that the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP), has proven itself as “the party that can bring progress and prosperity to all parts of our country.”
The President, who is preparing to leave office after the December 2024 election by which time his mandatory eight-year tenure would have expired, said this when he sent out a congratulatory message to his party folks for successfully electing 111 parliamentary candidates in constituencies where they have no serving Members of parliament.
“Despite the challenges confronting the nation, we have demonstrated, with our record in office, that we are the Party that can bring progress and prosperity to all parts of our country, “excerpts of the statement said.
President Akufo-Addo commended all stakeholders for contributing to a successful electoral process over the weekend.
I extend warm congratulations to the National, Regional, Constituency, Electoral Area and Polling Station Officers, and, indeed, the entire membership of the New Patriotic Party for the conduct of free, fair, transparent and credible parliamentary primaries in “orphan” constituencies during the weekend of Saturday, 2nd December 2023.”
According to him, the process “completes the penultimate stage of the party’s preparations for the all-important contest of 7th December 2024”, adding that, “we have, once again, expressed our deep attachment and commitment to the democratic values, which have been hallmarks of our Party’s great tradition.
The President urged all winners in the primaries to exhibit restraint in their celebrations and support the party’s presidential candidate for the 2024 election, Dr Mahamudu Bawumia to break the eight.
“So, I urge all winners to be magnanimous in their celebrations and work hard to bring on board those who were not successful.
“Through this, we shall create the united, formidable front that, under the leadership of our new, worthy presidential candidate, Alhaji Dr Mahamudu Bawumia, will enable us to go into the difficult 2024 elections with quiet confidence, and, with the help of Almighty God, Break the Eight, which is the fervent wish of all NPP members, and, indeed, of all well-meaning Ghanaians.
