President Nana Addo Dankwa AKufo-Addo has pledged the government’s commitment to sustain the peace and security of the country during this post-election era.
“I will do whatever I can to ensure peace, security and unity of the country. You can count on me. I will do it. The country needs it and I also need that” he said
President Akufo-Addo gave the assurance when he met the Flagbearer of the Ghana Union Movement (GUM), Rev Christian Kwabena Andrews, at the Jubilee House in Accra yesterday.
“I am the leader of this country and if anything happens it is my name that they will mention.
All I need is for people like you (referring to Rev Andrews) to also support me through advice, encouragement and anything that will help me attain that,” he said.
On a request from Rev Andrews for the government to support political parties and the media during elections, President Akufo-Addo said such a decision required further debate and consensus of all stakeholders.
Rev Andrews congratulated the President on his re-election as President of the country and prayed to God to give him “strength and longer years to continue with the works you intend doing in the next four years to bring development to Ghana”.
He stressed the need for the post-election disputes cropping up to be resolved amicably to avoid conflicts or disturbances in the country.
“Countries around us have had disputes but we have experienced nothing like that. We pray that the country will remain peaceful because the world is watching us,” he said93
