The President-elect, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has promised to ensure massive improvement in the living standards of the people before the end of his first term.
He said “the next four years must see a meaningful impact on the ordinary Ghanaian.
“The Ghanaian economy has taken a hit in these last three or four years, but we believe that with discipline, hard work and the correct set of policies, we should be able to bring the country back to prosperity,” the President-elect stated when he interacted with the Governor of the Imo State in Nigeria, Owelle Rochas Anayo Okorocha, on Monday.
He was on a three-day visit to Nigeria, where he also called on the president, Muhammadu Buhari, to discuss bilateral issues of importance to the two countries.
Nana Akufo-Addo noted that Ghana was endowed with lots of human and natural resources which would have to be harnessed for the greater development of the country.
He told the Imo State Governor how important the good relationship between the two countries would be for him when sworn into office.
“We value the historic relationship between the two countries. It is important that such links are established between our people and our leaders. They give confidence to our populations that we are working to try and resolve their problems and help them progress with their lives,” he said, adding, “The stronger the relationship between the two countries is, the better it is for the West Africa region and the continent at large”.
For his part, Mr Okorocha congratulated Nana Akufo-Addo on his victory and assured him of his support.
“I think this is the right time for you to be the President of Ghana,” he said.
