President Akufo-Addo has charged Ghanaians to eschew acts that tend to divide the Nation.
Addressing participants of the 2019 President’s Independence Day Awards ceremony held at the Accra International Conference Centre (AICC), President Akufo -Addo, said as the country prepares to celebrate sixty-two (62) years of independence from the British colonial power on the theme; “Celebrating Peace and Unity”, the people of Ghana ought to “eschew all acts of divisiveness and self-centered tendencies which will only retard our forward match”.
“We must have the pride to acknowledge that we are have made positive strides and we must also have the humility to appreciate that we still have a long way to go. We must have the patience to accept that just as our fight for freedom and independence was not achieved in a day, so too national prosperity will not come overnight. In peace and unity, I am certain that we can build a new Ghanaian civilisation which will attract the admiration of Africa and the world”.
Mr Akufo-Addo congratulated all the awardees and wished them well as they climb up the academic ladder in order to fulfill their future professional goals.
