President Nana Akufo-Addo has said he has been truthful to Ghanaians in delivering on his 2016 Campaign Promises and thus deserves another term to do greater works towards sustainable national development. The President said more than 80 percent of his promises, including the Free SHS policy, had been fulfilled.
The President was addressing the Eastern Regional House of Chiefs in Koforidua as part of his three-day tour of the Region.
President Akufo-Addo said in the area alone, his government had executed 1,481 projects with 768 completed, while 713 were ongoing.
He explained that 48 of the projects were in the health sector, 40 in road construction and 201 in the water sector, with all aimed at improving the living conditions of the people.
He announced that construction of the Eastern Railway line would commence by the close of the year.
President Akufo-Addo told the House that the chieftaincy institution remained an indispensable part of the history and development of Ghana, adding, “And I intend to strengthen it to play an integral part in national development.”
Osagyefuo Amoatia Ofori Panin, President of the Regional House of Chiefs, and the paramount chief of Akyem Abuakwa, commended the President for the measures he instituted in curbing the spread of the Coronavirus.
He appealed to the President to consider the decentralisation of Education to make communities and other stakeholders more involved in it.
