The vice president, Dr Mahamudu Bawumia has said that he and President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo are grateful to Ghanaians for giving them the opportunity to serve.

In a post on Facebook, Dr Bawumia said that the Akufo-Addo government is committed to fulfilling the pledge it made to Ghanaians during the 2016 election campaign.

“A year ago today, we lined up in our millions, unmindful of the Sun and rain, and took the decision to effect a change in our national fortunes.

“My boss Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, the NPP and I will be forever grateful for the opportunity to serve mother Ghana and implement destiny-changing policies and programmes.

“We will remain faithful to our pledge to the good people of Ghana, and ask for your constant prayer and support as we continue on the quest to move Ghana to her rightful place in the comity of nations. May God bless our homeland Ghana.”

Akufo-Addo beat ex-president John Mahama and five other candidates in the December 7 election by securing 53.85 per cent of valid votes cast to win the contest for the presidency.

He was sworn in on January 7, 2017, as Ghana’s 5th President of the 4th Republic.
