President Akufo-Addo says the New Patriotic Party (NPP)’s only aim and objective in this year’s elections would be to secure a one-touch victory.
According to him, a victory in the December elections would give him four more years to advance the peace, progress and prosperity the country is experiencing now.
Speaking at the NPP’s 2020 Manifesto Launch held in Cape Coast, he said, “The NPP has, in 2020, one target and one objective only, that is to secure, with your support and the blessing of the Almighty, in free, fair, peaceful and transparent elections, another decisive victory on 7th December 2020.
“A victory that will give us a clear majority in Parliament and a first round presidential victory, and enable us to do four more years of advancing the peace, progress and prosperity of our nation for you.”
He added that he will do everything in his power to ensure that the peace and stability theb country is experiencing now is not jeopardized before, during and after the December 7elections.
“Let me use this occasion to assure Ghanaians that, as President of the Republic, I will do everything within my means to ensure the peace and stability of our country in the run-up to, during and after the polls of 7th December 2020.
He further called on all political actors to join him ensure the peace and stability in the country by conducting themselves in a manner devoid of violence and ethnocentrism.
“The struggle of our forebears in the Danquah-Dombo-Busia political tradition, to construct, at great sacrifice, a democratic, open, free system of government in Ghana, will not be jeopardised by me.
“I am calling on all actors in the political space to join me to ensure the maintenance of the peace and stability of our country, and to conduct ourselves in a manner devoid of violence and ethnocentrism. The Ghana Project can best be achieved in unity, tolerance and mutual respect,” he stated.
