He said that Ghana is a country of enormous potentials and urged the President to “cut out waste, cut out profligacy, cut out corruption and bring back stability to the management of our economy”.

Nana Akufo-Addo asked President Mahama to act on the various commitments he made in his address to the nation, during the independence celebration.

“We have reached a state in our history where it is… action and policy which matter. What matters is not so much the words, but the actions and policies that will follow the words,” the presidential aspirant stated.
