President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo on Saturday, August 26, 2023, granted an interview to the media after casting his vote at the New Patriotic Party’s (NPP) Super Delegates Congress.
In that interview, the President expressed his confidence in the Ghanaians’ ability to choose a leader who can navigate the country through these difficult times.
“It’s difficult, I’m the first to admit it. I have said it several times, but at the end of the day I believe when the moment comes, Ghanaians will reflect on who best to get us out of this difficulty and take us to the next stage.”
This statement has been misconstrued by some news portals as an admission of incapability in addressing the current challenges faced by the nation.
However, www.ghanatoday.gov.gh can confirm that the president’s statement was not an admission of helplessness but a candid acknowledgement of the complexities of the issues at hand.
The President’s words merely acknowledge the hardships and challenges that Ghana is currently facing. Every leader recognizes the difficulties their nation encounters, and this statement is no exception.
He expressed his faith in Ghanaians to make informed decisions when the time comes.
This is not a statement of resignation as alleged by a Private legal practitioner, Martin Kpebu on Joy FM and reported by www.thespectatoronline.com but rather a call for collective reflection and engagement in the democratic process.
We can confirm that, throughout his tenure, the President has continually worked towards finding solutions to the nation’s problems.
His administration has taken numerous measures to improve various aspects of Ghana’s economy and governance.
This statement should be seen as an encouragement for citizens to participate in the decision-making process and choose the best path forward.
The President’s remarks were an honest acknowledgement of the difficulties Ghana is experiencing, combined with a strong belief in the democratic process and the people’s ability to make informed choices for the country’s future.
Ghana’s leadership remains dedicated to addressing the nation’s challenges and guiding it toward a brighter future.
This is a call on Ghanaians to focus on constructive dialogue and collaboration to move forward as a united nation.
