|The President-Elect of the Republic, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, has thanked Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, Asantehene, the Kumasi Traditional Council, and the people of the Ashanti Region for the massive show of support they offered him on December 7.
According to Nana Akufo-Addo, the pieces of advice, and words of encouragement from the Chiefs of Kumasi and Asanteman, coupled with the unflinching and unalloyed given to him by the people of the Region enabled him and the NPP secure a decisive victory in the presidential and parliamentary elections.
The President-Elect made this known on Wednesday, December 14, 2016, when he paid a courtesy call on Otumfuo Osei Tutu II and members of the Kumasi Traditional Council.
It will be recalled that, prior to his campaign tour of the Ashanti Region, in the run-up to the December 7 elections, Nana Akufo-Addo, on Friday, July 15, 2016, called on the Asantehene and the Asanteman Council to elicit support for his candidature.
In this regard, the President-Elect told the Council that, after emerging victorious on December 7, “I thought it proper to come here again and to thank you for your support. I am truly grateful.”
President-Elect Akufo-Addo assured Otumfuo Osei Tutu II and members of the Kumasi Traditional Council that “all the things I said I was going to do for the region in my campaign, I will fulfil it. They were not just campaign or platform talk.”
He also appealed for the continuous support of Asanteman through the course of his tenure in office, stressing that “in such an important job as this, I would need the advice of eminent persons like you. My doors are always open to you. I want all of you to help me build a progressive and prosperous Ghana.”
