By Kweku Antwi Jnr

President Akufo-Addo says the period of stay of his administration in office has witnessed the fulfillment of many of the promises he made to the Ghanaian people in the run-up to the December 2016 elections.

 According to President Akufo-Addo, “the work that we promised to do, the promises I made during the campaign period, I believe that all Ghanaians can attest to the fact that they were not idle promises, but rather promises that I honestly believed that I could fulfill, once I won power”.

 Addressing a durbar of chiefs held in his honour at Beposo on the second day 2 of his 5-day tour of the Ashanti Region, President Akufo-Addo stressed that, amongst others, Free Senior High School Education is a reality today.

“Those who said we could not do it has been put to shame. Very soon, we will pass legislation that stipulates that every child in Ghana should go to school up to Senior High School level, at least. We don’t want dropouts. This way, everyone can find meaningful employment in this country”, the President said.

He said “we have reduced electricity tariffs as well, so as to bring relief to individual households, as well as to businesses. By so doing, business owners, especially entrepreneurs, will be energized to bring in more income. We came to visit you and to inform you that the promises we made to you here in Beposo, during the campaign period, are being fulfilled”.

“It is systematic. We are pushing for complete rural electrification and very soon, you will hear from us here in Beposo.”

Earlier in the day, President Akufo-Addo visited the Rocklands Farms in Beposo, Wontumi Farms in Asare Nkwanta, and visited Assam, in Mampong, to inspect ongoing works on the Kofiase-Mampong road, which is being constructed for the first time in the country’s history.
