The President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has assured Ghanaians of government’s commitment and determination to ensure national peace and stability in the run-up to Election 2020.
He, therefore, appealed to traditional authorities to support him to win the December 7 polls and emphasised that Ghana remained a pace-setter and beacon of democracy on the African Continent while lobbying the cooperation and collaboration of traditional authorities to maintain that feat.
President Akufo-Addo gave the assurance when he inaugurated the newly re-constituted Bono Regional House of Chiefs in Sunyani.
President Akufo-Addo indicated the chieftaincy institution remained relevant in the nation’s democratic process and though chiefs were not allowed to engage in active politics, their unparalleled contributions to nation-building could not be over-emphasised.
President Akufo-Addo told the chiefs they had enormous role to play in fighting corruption and social injustices and called on them to help curb outmoded traditional practices and customs inimical to the well being of women and children.
He used the opportunity to introduce the 12 NPP parliamentary candidates in the Region to the chiefs and appealed for their support to enable them to win the seats.
