Ghana’s president-elect, Akufo Addo on Sunday, 10 January expressed gratitude to the people of Ashanteman whose massive support contributed immensely towards his December 7 victory at the polls.
President Akufo-Addo speaking at the first Akwasidae Festival for 2021 at the forecourt of the Manhyia Palace in Kumasi said he was deeply touched by the massive love and support from Asanteman during the just-ended elections.
“But for the significant support of Asanteman, in terms of votes on December 7, 2020, there is no way that I could have won the presidential elections,” President Akufo-Addo openly confessed to the crowd.
He said he would make sure to reciprocate the colossal number of votes that he and the New Patriotic Party (NPP) won in Asanteman during the December 7 elections with massive infrastructural projects.
I was at the Saint Cyprian’s Anglican Church in Kumasi this morning for a thanksgiving service and the Archbishop reminded me about the need to reciprocate Asanteman’s love and support with more projects.
“And I am stating here in the presence of the Asantehene that massive infrastructural projects are earmarked for Asanteman this year and the rest of my term,” the President said.
Historically, Akwasidae Festival is celebrated by the Ashanti people and chiefs in Ashanti, as well as the Ashanti diaspora. The festival is celebrated on a Sunday, once every six weeks. In attendance were the President of Ghana, paramount chiefs, and other prominent guests were also present.
