“As we observe this occasion, let us all understand and appreciate the fact that, we all have contributions to make towards the development of our dear country,” the NPP said in a statement signed by Mr John Boadu, the Acting General Secretary of the Party and copied to the Ghana news Agency in Accra.
“It is therefore important to remind ourselves of the need to be moderate and measured in our celebrations to avoid any unpleasant happenings that will be injurious to us, as individuals and the nation.
“More importantly, we are celebrating this year’s holidays at a time the change we had all been yearning for in the political leadership of the country has been made possible. It is our firm belief that, the benefits of the change will begin to manifest next year after the President-elect, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, has been sworn into office on January 7, 2017.
“We want to appeal to all Ghanaians to remember the President-elect and the NPP in their prayers, so that we can be well-positioned to serve the best interest of the country.
“We want to use this occasion to re-assure the nation that the incoming NPP government will seek effective partnership with all Ghanaians, individuals and groups, as we work together to ensure that the new era of change engenders the kind of progress and prosperity that will satisfy the needs and aspirations of the people.
“Once again, we wish all of you a Merry Christmas and Prosperous New Year,” the statement said.
