The President says dealing with the virus will be government’s topmost priority this year.
Speaking in a brief interview with journalists after worshipping with the Ridge Church in Accra on 31st night, President Akufo-Addo admonished Ghanaians to maintain the peace of the country.
“I hope we have a good year and then COVID-19 is finally brought under control in the country, so we are able to build our economy and secure the peace and stability of the country. That is my wish for the Ghanaian people.”
Already, the Vice President, Dr. Alhaji Mahammudu Bawumia has said Ghana will become a reference point in economic development in Africa and the sub-region in the next four-year term of the Akufo-Addo administration.
He believes the country will experience a major transformation throughout the second of President Akufo-Addo.

There is no doubt in my mind that some significant foundation has already been laid for accelerated development, and we are confident that he who has begun the good work will help us to bring it to perfect completion. I am excited about the future of Ghana. We are going to be one of the powerhouses in Africa by the grace of God. We are only just beginning and so the next four years, we will see a major transformation in Ghana”, Dr. Bawumia assured.
The Vice President also joined congregants at the St. Cyprians Anglican Cathedral where he reiterated the need for all Ghanaians to maintain the peace in the country.
