President Nana Akufo-Addo remains hopeful his campaign promises will still be fulfilled at the end of his four year-mandate.
He reiterated that a number of the promises he made to Ghanaians in the lead up to the 2016 elections have been fulfilled while his administration keeps the momentum to ensure the ones left will be secured shortly.
“I told the good people of Ghana that I am up to the task of running the country. I have fulfilled a number of campaign promises. I know we have a lot to do. It is a four-year mandate and by the time my four years will be over, I would have fulfilled all my promises. I am not one of the politicians who promises and fails to deliver. I will deliver on all my promises,” the President Stated.
President Nana Addo-Dankwa Akufo Addo, has been honoured with the Akan title “Oseade?y?”, by the leadership and members of the Adanwomase Kente Weavers and Sellers Association. The honour was conferred on the President for fulfilling some of the key programmes and policies promised in the run-up to the 2016 presidential and parliamentary elections.
The President was honoured at a brief ceremony on Tuesday, April , 2018, when a delegation of Chiefs and Elders of Adanwomase, and the leadership and members of Adanwomase Kente Weavers Association called on him at the Jubilee House, in Accra. Conferring the honour, the spokesperson of the delegation said “the Adanwomase Kente Weavers and Sellers Association are here today to present a specially woven Kente cloth, which we call ‘Oseade?y? Akufo-Addo’, in honour of the three major political campaign promises fulfilled, namely the Free Senior High School policy, the restoration of teaching and nursing trainee allowances, and for establishing the Office of the Special Prosecutor.”
Touching on the Free Senior High School Policy, the spokesperson of the delegation said “this flagship educational policy has brought huge relief to parents, guardians and students across the country. We have the conviction that the policy will go a long way to ensure that students will have broader access to quality education which will guarantee for them, a better and more secured future.”
The delegation also expressed gratitude to the President for not reneging on his promise to restore the allowances for teaching and nursing trainees.
Continuing, he said the office of the Special Prosecutor will ensure that corruption and its allied effects, which have plagued the development of the country, will be mitigated considerably, and expressed hope that the 1-District-1-Factory policy, and the 1-Village-1-Dam project will soon be implemented.
“These will help provide jobs for the teeming youth who have been rendered jobless over the years,” he explained.
President Akufo-Addo was grateful for the honour done him, and commended the Kente Weaving Industry in Ghana for its contribution to our national culture and identity.
