Below is the statement

"We acknowledge the role played by successive generations of Ghanaians towards the liberation of our country from colonialism and imperialism. It is time we rose above partisan considerations, set the record straight, recognise the collective efforts in gaining our freedom and independence from colonial rule, and do right by our history. I wish all Ghanaians a happy Founders' Day, and, once again, I salute and pay tribute to all Senior Citizens in every part of the country today."
