Akufo-Addo pledges unwavering commitment to peaceful elections
Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, Presidential Candidate of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), has pledged his party’s unwavering commitment to a peaceful poll free from intimidation and violence.
He said theirs was a “peaceful political party” and would not be part of anything that could trigger confusion.
The NPP had twice conceded election defeat and he said, that should signal to all that it cherished the nation’s peace.
He was addressing the maiden “Adinkra durbar” of the chiefs and people of Suma-Ahenkro in the Jaman North District.
It formed part of this year’s “Akwantu Kese festival” dedicated to the memory of the late Nana Kwadwo Adinkra, King of the Jaman Kingdom in the 17th century, credited with the introduction of the ‘Adinkra’ symbol.
“Culture, education and development” was the theme for the event.
Nana Akufo-Addo appealed to traditional leaders to demand responsible conduct from politicians and their supporters.
They should help everybody to accept play by the rules of decency and healthy political debate.
He rallied the people to vote massively for the NPP in coming general elections to tackle the faltering economy, create jobs and wealth.
He gave the assurance that when voted to lead the country, he would work aggressively to transform the economy to end the grinding poverty and suffering among the population.
Nana Akufo-Addo said they would give priority to the agricultural sector, to grow it and ensure optimal returns to the farmer.
The Chief of Bono State in Cote d’ Ivoire, Nana Kwasi Adinkra Agyemang, advised Ghanaians to put their nation ahead of narrow individual or group interest.
