10/12/2016 Press Release PAUL A. AFOKO CONGRATULATES PRESIDENT-ELECT, NANA ADDO DANKWA AKUFO-ADDO
Mr. Paul A. Afoko, the elected National Chairman of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) wishes to congratulate Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo on his election to the high office of the President of the Republic of Ghana.
The resounding victory you and the NPP chalked in last Wednesday’s Presidential and Parliamentary elections is ample testimony of the fact that, indeed, Ghanaians were really yearning for a change in the governance of our nation, and they believed in your ability to bring that change which would ultimately impact positively on our lives.
Indeed, it is heart-warming to have listened to the President-Elect in his victory speech promising to be the President for “every single Ghanaian without discrimination, malice or ill-will to any ethnic group or political or religious affiliation. Whether you supported me or not, whether you campaigned for me or not, I can promise you one thing.
I will do my best to serve your interests, and put our country back on the path of progress and prosperity.” Mr. Afoko also wishes to commend His Excellency John D. Mahama for graciously conceding defeat and promptly calling Mr. Akufo-Addo to congratulate him. Mr. Afoko further commends the President and his team for putting up such a spirited fight to maintain power but time was simply up. What has transpired so far is victory for democracy and all Ghanaians are to be commended for it.
Those of us who are celebrating the victory of the President-Elect and the NPP, do so but let us be measured in our celebrations and reach out to those who have not had the result they campaigned for. It is now time to show unity and work together in the task of nation-building.
Once again congratulations to the President-Elect, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo!
Nana Yaw Osei, Spokesperson, on behalf of Paul Awentami Afoko National Chairman, NPP.
