I will fulfill my promises - Prez. Mahama
President John Mahama has pledged to fulfill the promises he made to the electorates during the electioneering period.
“The promises that I have made are promises that I intend to keep…and I promise I will not let you down.” he said.
Addressing the invited guests and spectators at the Independence Square in Accra on Monday, President Mahama promised saying, “I will work hard to place us on the right path and I will lead us over the hurdles and pass the obstacles that might threaten to keep us from meeting our goals.”
He appealed to the general public to maintain the faith and trust placed in him as President because, “change does not happen overnight and sometimes despite whatever progress we make, it will appear to be darkest before the dawn of a new day to make that progress visible.”
The President advised Ghanaians to “look within ourselves and choose to see the lie of our powerlessness or we can see the unlimited horizon of our own potential”, because according to him, “every society has its fair share of people who would rather talk and complain about what is wrong.
Than devote their time and effort to do what it takes to make things right.
At every opportunity, they will tell us all the things we cannot achieve and all the reasons why we should not even attempt to achieve them.
The choice is ours.
President John Dramani Mahama has been duly sworn in as the 4th President of the 4th Republic of Ghana.
The Chairman of the Electoral Commission declared President Mahama as the winner of the December 7, Presidential elections.
The election was keenly contested as he faced stiff competition from the New Patriotic Party’s (NPP) Presidential candidate, Nana Akufo-Addo and six other Presidential candidates.
Members of the oppostion NPP did not show up for the ceremony.
The leadership of the party had early on warned members against attending as doing so would undermine its case at the Supreme Court challenging the validity of the results of the 2012 elections.
