‘Be citizens not spectators’-Nana Addo urges Ghanaians
The President of the republic of Ghana, His Excellency Nana Addo Dankwa Akuffo Addo has charged Ghanaians to be citizens and not just spectators of his administration.
Delivering his address after been sworn into office Saturday January 7, 2017, the president underscored the need for all hands to be on deck if the change the people are yearning for should be achieved.
“Fellow citizens you must be at the center of the change. The change we have voted for will have to start with each of us as individuals.”
“We can start with little changes in our own individual attitudes and practices. The change can and should start now and with us as individuals.” He added.
According to President Akufo Addo, the desired Ghana can be achieved if citizens are responsible enough to help in building their communities and by large the entire nation. Urging all to work towards achieving that “until the work is done.”
Nana Addo also promised to “advance my convictions with civility”, and to “serve the public interest with courage”.
He also promised justice as well as compassion for all and not just a section of Ghanaians and most importantly the newly sworn in president pledged not only to call for responsibility under his government but to live it as well.
