Come and save Ghana - Aburi Chief tells Akufo-Addo
The acting President of Akuapem Traditional Council, Otubuor Gyan Kwasi II, has urged the 2016 presidential candidate of the New Patriotic Party, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, to “save Ghana”, when, God-willing and the people of Ghana consenting, he wins this year’s presidential elections.
According to Otubuor Gyan Kwasi II, who is the Adontenhene of Akuapem and Aburihene, Ghanaians from every part of the country are suffering and are crying for a savior who will bring them “blessings, prosperity and unity.”
Otubuor Gyan Kwasi II made this known when the NPP flagbearer paid a courtesy call on him at his palace, on day 2 of Nana Akufo-Addo’s tour of the Eastern Region, on Thursday, June 30, 2016.
The Aburihene, who addressed the NPP flagbearer in the presence of his sub-Chiefs and hundreds of residents, indicated that “you (my subjects) have put me here to speak on your behalf. So I am blessing him (Nana Akufo-Addo), so that in return he comes to bless Okuapeman and Ghana.”
Otubuor Gyan Kwasi II urged the NPP flagbearer to continue exhibiting the patience, for which he is known for, in the face of bastardisations and insults from his political opponents, stressing that “for as long as the God of Israel lives, he will surely cross the Red Sea.”
“All Ghanaians are crying. Ghanaians want blessings, prosperity and unity. My advice to him (Nana Akufo-Addo) is that he listens to what Ghanaians want, and victory will be his. It is our duty as elders of this land to bless him, so that when he leaves here, whatever has been messed up, he can come and put it right. Once he puts it right, it is Ghana and Ghanaians will be the ultimate beneficiaries,” he added.
He continued, “Whoever comes to me will want me to bless him, and that is the same blessing to you. However, my message to you is this: Save Ghana, Save Ghana.”
On his part, the NPP flagbearer thanked Otubuor Gyan Kwasi II for his warm words, stating that “I have been waiting for these words from you for a very long time, and I am glad I have heard them.”
He assured the Aburihene that “we are coming to do a job for Ghana and not for any particular group, so we bring work, business opportunities, and employment for the people of Ghana, especially the youth.”
