The President-Elect of the Republic, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, has appealed for the unflinching support of the membership of Greater Accra Regional House of Chiefs, assuring that his doors will be open to them at all times, as he seeks to build a progressive and prosperous nation.

Ladies and gentlemen of the media, fellow Ghanaians,

A few minutes ago, at 7:51pm precisely, the President of the Republic and the NDC presidential candidate, H.E. John Dramani Mahama, called me on the phone to congratulate me on my victory in the presidential election of 7th December 2016. He wished me the best of luck and God’s blessings, and assured me of his full co-operation in organizing the transition from his administration to mine. I thanked him for this graceful gesture, which is in the finest traditions of Ghanaian statesmanship and, on my part, assured him of my cooperation for a successful transition. I also thanked him for his service to our nation and said that I felt sure that his contribution to the welfare of our Republic was by no means over. I have also received words of congratulation from my other competitors, Mr. Ivor Greenstreet, our former 1st Lady, Nana Konadu Agyeman Rawlings, Dr. Papa Kwesi Nduom, Dr. Edward Mahama, and Mr. Jacob Osei Yeboah. I am grateful to them.

This is to extend my warmest congratulations to the United Democratic Party’s presidential candidate, Adama Barrow, on his hard-fought victory in the Gambian presidential election of December 1, 2016.

Fellow Ghanaians, I am Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, the presidential candidate of the New Patriotic Party (NPP). I have come to you this evening to appeal for your support and your vote, both for me and the 275 NPP parliamentary candidates on Wednesday, December 7, in two days time.

The 2016 presidential candidate of the New Patriotic Party, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, has assured Ghanaians that victory for him and the NPP in the December 7 elections will mean that the country will be put at the forefront of the industrialization efforts of West Africa.
