President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo says the forebears of the party left behind unrivaled legacies which he will ensure the party will remain faithful to that tradition.
He adds:”We are the heirs of the noblest tradition in Ghanaian politics” insisting any act by members of his administration and the party in general to change the course of the entrenched legacies of the party will be dealt with ruthlessly.
” The tradition of freedom, the tradition of progress, the tradition of development in freedom, is a precious asset and we are going to be faithful to that tradition. We’re faithful to that tradition if we recognize that , we are all in the same boat, and we are rowing towards the same destination about the upliftment of Ghana and about freedom in Ghana. It means that therefore, anybody who wants to rock that boat and capsize it, for the time being, I am the captain of the boat. I am not going to allow anybody to capsize our boat. Too much effort and sweat and sacrifice has gone into bringing us where we are here today to allow anybody to capsize it.” he said in an address during the Annual Delegates Conference at Cape Coast.
