President Akufo-Addo

The Guantoahene of Gomoa Ajumako traditional area, Gomoaba Nana Apata Kofi V, has commended the President, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo for inviting his predecessors (former presidents) to discuss crucial issues concerning the socio-economic development of the country.

Addressing members of the Gomoa-Pomadze Town Development Committee at Pomadze, at the weekend, Nana Apata Kofi described President Akufo-Addo’s  move as, “ an excellent initiative,’’ worthy of emulation by all Ghanaians, irrespective of  their political, religious, and ethnic affiliations.

The Guantoahene who is also the Chief of Pomadze, advised leaders of various religious organisations, political groups, clans and institutions to learn useful lessons from what he further described as a divine-oriented action.

He said Nana Akufo-Addo’s initiative, the first in the history of the country’s political administration, would definitely yield fruitful results, because it would generate a higher sense of co-operation, understanding and a sense of togetherness among the citizenry and eventually pave the way for rapid development.

He expressed the hope that, level-headed Ghanaians would fully embrace, and accord President Akufo-Addo with great respect for making such an effort at bridging the gap between the NPP-led administration and the three brilliant past presidents.

Nana Apata Kofi appealed to the three past leaders, Jerry John Rawlings, John Agyekum Kufuor and John Dramani Mahama, to strive to maintain the high level of leadership and statesmanship qualities they had cultivated, which virtually influenced them to accept the sitting president’s historic invitation.

The Guantoahene stated that, by their action, the three former presidents had proved that their continued commitment towards the attainment of national goals and preparedness to inject useful suggestions and ideas to support Nana Akufo-Addo administration when the need arose.

Nana Apata Kofi extended special gratitude to the former presidents for their high sense of nationalism and prayed that, the almighty God would bless them to support the current administration for success.

Nana Apata Kofi further tasked Ghanaians to always see themselves as members of one great family fighting tirelessly for the common good of the nation and not enemies as some of them might perceive, due to partisan differences.
