President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has tasked Ghanaians to continue being citizens not spectators in his 2nd term.
According to him, “Being citizens and not spectators” is the surest way Ghanaians can contribute to socio-economic development.
President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo made the disclosure during his inaugural speech in Parliament.
“The sheer can-do spirit of the Ghanaian which I have witnessed all my life is the bedrock of which we can build the Ghana of our dream.
Indeed, four years ago during my first inauguration, I urged all Ghanaians to be citizens and not spectators.
I appealed to you to be active participants in the efforts to help build the Ghana we want in a democratic, free, prosperous, and united Ghana.
This is what our forefathers say is the Black Stars of Africa.
“In my first term, I was able to count on the contribution of all citizens in an attempt to create this Ghana.
What I have seen in these last four years, is further evidence if anyone needed is that the Ghanaian will no longer accept poverty and deprivation as his or her portion.
They are rather determined to chart a path of growth and development of his or her self.”
