President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has warned that the presidency is not experimental for the National Democratic Congress (NDC) and its flagbearer to want a second coming to correct their mistakes.
He stated that those responsible for the worst economic performance of the last 30 years are claiming to have learned their mistakes and are seeking another opportunity to correct their mistakes.
He said, “Dare I ask, should the presidency be for experiments? Surely not!”
“You the Ghanaian people deserve better and you will get better on 7th December with four more years for Nana and the NPP to do more for you.”
The President stated these on Saturday when the NPP National Executive Council acclaimed him the party’s candidate for the 2020 presidential elections.
He stressed the need for the ruling party to win the general elections to ensure the many projects started by the government are completed.
He warned Ghanaians not to dare to leave the numerous manufacturers trooping into Ghana under our 1D1F scheme for the NDC to destroy.
The warned that the presidency is not for experiments for Ghanaians to revert it back to his predecessor and his opposition party who they voted out in 2016.
He said, “We dare not leave the free SHS to be reviewed. We cannot leave our roads to go unattended again only to become part of green book propaganda.”
“We dare not jeopardize the digitization schedule on which we have embarked.”
He urged all NPP sympathizers to go out with the confidence that comes from a government that is performing well and running the Affairs of the country competently and tell the good story to Ghanaians.
He urged eligible Ghanaians, no matter the party they belong to, to go out in their masses to register when the Electoral Commission starts the voters’ registration exercise next week.
“I am calling Ghanaians to go and register so they can exercise their civic responsibilities on 7th December 2020 to elect a government of their choice,” he said.
He stressed that the coronavirus pandemic notwithstanding, there is a need to strengthen the Ghanaian democracy.
