Ghana’s National House of Chiefs (NHC) has congratulated Nana Addo Dankwah Akufo-Addo on his election as the country’s president and pledged their unflinching support.
The country’s traditional chiefs say they are ready to partner his administration to bring progress and transform the lives of the people.
In a statement issued by their president, Togbe Afede XIV, the chiefs reminded the president-elect to appoint capable people to assist him to run an efficient government to satisfy the aspirations of the poople.
The chiefs noted that Ghanaians wanted change and therefore the need to develop policies and programmes which would meet their expectations. They said the president-elect would require men and women of great expertise and experience to help him achieve his vision as stated in his party’s manifesto.
The statement pointed out that the task ahead required all Ghanaians to stand solidly behind the President-elect and for this to happen, the House counselled that space be created for all, irrespective of political, religious or ethnic affiliation, to contribute to the political governance of the country.
The chiefs applauded outgoing President John Dramani Mahama for graciously conceding defeat and the promise to ensure a smooth transition of power come this Saturday.
