Every truthful Ghanaian knows all is not well – Akufo-Addo

Akufour AddoEveryone in Ghana at the moment is suffering and every truthful Ghanaian acknowledges that all is not well with Ghana, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, flagbearer of the opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP), has said.

While speaking to the Asantehene Otumfuo Osei Tutu II at Manhyia, Kumasi, Thursday July 14, as part of his tour of the Ashanti Region in preparation for this year’s elections, Mr Akufo-Addo said: “The undeniable truth is that the Ashanti Region is home to a great deal of Ghana’s wealth – our cocoa, gold, etc. However, the talk emanating from the region is not a good one. Everywhere I have been to, I am met with phrases such as: ‘Nana, come and save us’, ‘Nana, we are suffering.’”

He continued, “Every truthful person in Ghana will acknowledge that all is not well with our nation. I am not saying this to score political points. It is the sad truth. Everyone in Ghana is suffering. In such a situation, we have no choice but to find a way to take away the hardship from the Ghanaian people.”

To this end, Nana Akufo-Addo indicated: “There is no government that has developed this country as much as the Kufuor government did in our time. Every good policy in operation in Ghana was done by President Kufuor – the National Health Insurance Scheme, Metro Mass Transit, School Feeding Programme, Free Maternal Care, amongst others.”

He appealed for the support of the chiefs and people of the region to help bring wealth and prosperity to every part of the country, without discrimination by supporting him to win the elections.

“If the chiefs and people of Ashanti hear my cry and give me their support, all the abandoned projects I enumerated will be completed during my stay in office. Of particular focus is how we are coming to create jobs for the people of Ghana. Our young men and women, in every part of the country, are all looking for jobs. Every country that has failed to create jobs for the youth has ended up with several social problems. It is, therefore, necessary that we find ways and means to create jobs for the people,” he said.
