Ghana’s president, Nana Akufo-Addo has promised to make Accra the cleanest city on the continent within the next four years.

“The commitment I want to make, and for all of us to make, is that by the end of my term in office, Accra will be the cleanest city on the entire African continent. That is the commitment I am making,” he said.

The president made this known on Sunday, April 23, 2017, when the president of the Ngleshie Alata Traditional Council, Oblempong Nii Kojo Ababio, together with the Chiefs and people of Jamestown, enstooled him as a Chief in Jamestown, in Accra.

The stool name “Nii Kwaku Ablade Okogyeaman 1,” which means “Royal Warrior; one who fights to redeem his people” was given to the president as part of the enstoolment on Sunday.

Speaking at the event, paramount chief of the area, Oblempong Nii Kojo Ababio, said the reason for honouring Nana Akufo-Addo with the stool was because of his sterling career as a human rights lawyer who stood for the rule of law and advocated for the rights of the ordinary Ghanaian.

The paramount chief advised the president to be impartial in the implementation of policies and programmes that will benefit every citizen of Ghana.  Oblempong Nii Kojo Ababio also appealed to the President to expedite actions to turn Jamestown into a modern city in order to bring economic activity to the area.

The first lady, Mrs Rebecca Akufo-Addo who is also a member of the Ga tribe was also honoured at the durbar.
