President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has reiterated his commitment to ensure prosperity for all Ghanaians, including those who voted against him in the December 7 polls.
Speaking at the New Patriotic Party’s (NPP) National Thanksgiving Service in Accra Sunday, the President assured Ghanaians he will work to improve the living conditions of all.
“It has been the constant theme of our work that the battle is the Lord’s. And so today we have the opportunity to give Him thanks for making it possible for this victory for the NPP and also for continuing to secure the peace of our country.
“I want to thank the people of Ghana for maintaining their confidence in our leadership of the country especially the over 6.7million people who voted for me. But in singling them out I also want to assure the 6.2million who did not vote for me that I will have their interest at heart and in mind in all that I do.”
The Electoral Commission on Wednesday, December 9, declared incumbent President Nana Akufo-Addo the winner of the 2020 presidential election.
