He also urged them to reflect on his greatest commandment: “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind… and love your neighbor as yourself.” I, therefore, encourage all to remain committed to the cardinal principles of Christianity: love, charity and reconciliation.

The president-elect quickly focused his message on the challenges ahead of him as he prepares to assume office on January 7, 2017.

He urged Ghanaians not to see the economic challenges of today as the blueprint for 2017.

Akufo-Addo added that there are brighter days ahead, urging Ghanaians to remain united.

He said: "I am aware of the many challenges that confronted Ghanaians this year. We should not see the economic difficulties of today as the blueprint of our tomorrow. There are brighter days ahead. We should continue to stay united and focus on the things that can help us construct the road to a brighter future.

"We enhanced further our democratic credentials through the peaceful, dignified exercise of our democratic franchise. We have, once again, become the toast of the world. I, thus, urge each and every one of us not to do anything to jeopardise the peace and stability we are all enjoying.

He further urged celebrants to celebrate the season safely and responsibly, and remember to help those who are less fortunate than ourselves in this season of giving.
