President Nana Akufo-Addo has promised to make the state capital the cleanest city on the African continent in the next four years.
The President has urged city dwellers and environmental stakeholders to support his commitment to rid Accra of filth by the end of my term in office.
“That is the commitment I am making,” he said on Sunday at a durbar held in his honour and First Lady, Rebecca Akufo-Addo, at Mantse Agboona in Accra.
The President made the remark 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 of Jamestown.
President Akufo-Addo was given the stool name “Nii Kwaku Ablade Okogyeaman”, to wit “Royal Warrior; one who fights to redeem his people”.
Explaining the rationale for the enstoolment, Oblempong Nii Kojo Ababio, stated that President Akufo-Addo’s career as a human rights lawyer and an advocate of the rule of law and multiparty democracy is indicative of a man who has the welfare of Ghana at heart.
