President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has described himself as a leader who can be trusted and, thus, asked Ghanaians to continue to believe in him to “take the country to a good place”.
“The most important thing I want to say is that I want Ghanaians to know I didn’t become President to deceive anybody.
“When I made my promises during my run for the presidency, the opposition said I couldn’t do what I had promised and that I was deceiving Ghanaians because they don’t have the vision, they don’t have the understanding of how to do things.
“Everything I wanted to do in education, industry, agriculture, each one of the policies they said we couldn’t do it and it was misplaced, but Ghanaians have realised I came to tell the truth, I came to help the nation to prosper and that is exactly what we are doing now”, the President said.
“I want the Ghanaian people to understand that Akufo-Addo is a truthful person and he is a man of his words and, so, they should trust me”, Mr Akufo-Addo said.
“I’ll not drive the country into a ditch. On the contrary, I want to take the country to a good place”.
