The President was the first to express his good wishes for Ghanaians and urged them among other things to work hard and remain determined to help revive the country’s economy from its challenges partly caused by the coronavirus.

“And we are seeing the transformation of the Ghanaian economy which will bring in its wake, jobs for our youth in our nation. We are not there yet, but there is now a much greater belief that with discipline, determination and hard work, we will make it,” the President said in an address to the nation.
He added that the fact that Ghana has once again held a successful election and remains intact, God deserves adoration.
