“In periods of great economic strife and hopelessness, it is you who come to the peoples’ rescue and provide the needed inspiration and industry to get the state back on the path of recovery,” he said.

He expressed hope that even as the country goes through a tough economic patch, “your unconquerable spirit of resilience and service will lift us out of our present gloom.”

“And this is why you remain our eternal heroes and heroines,” he concluded.

He also took the opportunity to remind Ghanaians of his Party’s manifesto promise to provide sustainable and decent jobs for all through their Edwuma Pa policy.
