The President, Nana Addo Dankwah Akufo-Akufo has once again called on Ghanaians to continue to be ‘Citizens not spectators’ in his second term.

He said that is the surest way the confidence reposed in him by the electorate will be realized to bring the socio-economic development they so desire.

Addressing Parliament today after his swearing-in, the President said “The sheer can-do spirit of the Ghanaian which I have witnessed all my life is the bedrock of which we can build the Ghana of our dream. Indeed, four years ago during my first inauguration, I urged all Ghanaians to be citizens and not spectators. I appealed to you to be active participants in the efforts to help build the Ghana we want in a democratic, free, prosperous and united Ghana. This is what our forefathers say is the Black Stars of Africa.”

He also said he has come to the realization that Ghanaians are interested in their overall progress and not to be in abject poverty.

“In my first term, I was able to count on the contribution of all citizens in an attempt to create this Ghana. What I have seen in this last four years, is further evidence if anyone needed is that the Ghanaian will no longer accept poverty and deprivation as his or her portion. They are rather determined to chart a path of growth and development of his or her self.” he added.
