President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo says he’s happy the naked untruths that were perpetrated against him by his opponents are being largely exposed during his reign.
Mr. Akufo-Addo’s bid for the Presidency exposed him to false narratives and propaganda meant to crush his chances for the high office, which were literally machinations by his political opponents ahead of the December 2016 elections.
He told a gathering at Asesewa in the Upper Manya Krobo constituency as part of his 3-day tour of the Eastern Region that his focus has been to rescue the economy from the ill trajectory and nothing else.
“…during the elections, people were going around saying that the people of Krobo should not vote for us (in the NPP), because when they do, since I am an Akyem, I will come and sack the people of Krobo, and make them miserable. As you can see, nothing like that has happened, has it?”
“I am sure you can all tell now that they were lying against me. I can’t do that to the people of Krobo, and to the people of Dangme… I am very grateful for the support that you have given our party, and for the work that we are doing. That work will bring up our country up again.”
He appealed for the support of the people of the Kroboland and the people of Ghana, saying “help me and let us move together.”
President Akufo-Addo told the Konor of the Manya Krobo Traditional Area, Nene Sackitey II, that “I want Krobo-land to be part of NPP territory. So, I came here to say, once again, a big thank you. I thank you very much that you have given us Asesewa (Upper Manya Korobo constituency, in the December 2016 elections).”
He continued: “what matters for me is that all of us in Ghana, should stay united in our democracy. Our democracy allows us to have different points of views, different parties, but we should all stay united as Ghanaians over the Ghana project, and how we can develop our country in freedom.”
