President Akuffo Addo is very sure his NPP government has fulfilled many of their campaign promises made prior to the 2016 General election.
Addressing members of the Ghanaian community resident in France on Monday, 8th July, 2019, the president disclosed that his led government has implemented many of their campaign promises in the past 2½ years.
“We are 2½ years into a 4-year mandate, and what I continue to insist and tell the people of Ghana is that, by the end of my mandate, they will see that I came to tell them the truth about what I wanted to do. I didn’t come to deceive anybody,” he said.
He continued: “I know that my opponents will be saying something else, but that is their right. God willing, on the 7th December 2020, the day of accountability, we will know who is telling the truth.“
President Akufo-Addo also touched on the announcement made by the Assembly of Heads of State and Government of the African Union that Ghana has been chosen as host country for the Secretariat of the African Continental Free Trade Area (AfCFTA).
“Maybe some of the grey beards can remember 30 years ago, at the beginning of the common market, what France was like, and what it is like today… there is no doubt about the massive impact that the European Union has had on the lives of European people, in terms of increasing their economic circumstances, and we believe that the African Continental Free Trade Area is going to do the same for us,” he explained.
The president as part of his visit is currently in France.
