Don’t take government’s achievements for granted - President Kufuor

President John Agyekum Kufuor, has asked Ghanaians not to take for granted the Government's achievements over the last eight years, which had given hope to the nation and won international admiration.
     Ghana, he said, "is where it is now because of the hard work and vision of the Government."
     President Kufuor said this when he joined Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, the ruling New Patriotic Party's (NPP) Presidential Candidate to address party faithful at a rally in Brong Ahafo Region.
     He encouraged the electorate especially the youth to stand firm and not to yield to falsehood and lies by the party opponents.
     President Kufuor called on all party members and supporters to turn out in their numbers on poll day to vote massively for the NPP's presidential and parliamentary candidates.
     Nana Akufo-Addo reiterated the call on supporters to be careful with those seeking to create confusion in society.
     He told them to exercise restraint and work to sustain the unity, stability and cohesion of the country.
     What Ghana wanted, he said, is politics of unity, solidarity and reconciliation.
     He condemned tribal politics saying, that could only take the nation backwards. "We do not want to go backward in our history," he added.    
     Nana Akufo-Addo told the rally crowd that he entered into politics not personal gains but to serve the nation.
     The NPP, he said, had demonstrated that "it delivers on its promises and therefore Ghanaians should have confidence in the party."
