Ghanaian President-elect Vows to Keep Campaign Promises
« on: December 16, 2016, 05:53:49 AM »

In his first 100 days in office, President-elect Nana Akufo-Addo will implement measures to improve Ghanaians' lives and restore dignity to the presidency, his spokesman said Thursday.

It's hoped that Ghanaians "would begin to see a difference," Mustapha Hamid said. Akufo-Addo will "establish the presidency as the embodiment of the spirit and soul and the values of our country."

President John Mahama, meanwhile, continued to lead his team in meetings with Akufo-Addo as part of the transition process following the December 7 election. Hamid expressed concern that the outgoing team has yet to fully comply with the Transition Act.

The act stipulates that a month before a general election, notes of all ministries are to be prepared and given to the administrator general. That person then is to give them to the incoming administration's transition team to study.

Hamid said notes had been received from eight ministries — land and forestry, transport, chieftaincy, food and agriculture, interior, defense , trade and industry, and fisheries — and "we are awaiting the rest."

Civil society groups say expectations are high as Ghanaians wait to learn whom Akufo-Addo will choose as ministers. However, he can announce his choices only after he is officially installed as president. The swearing-in ceremony is set for January 7.

Hamid said Akufo-Addo would keep his campaign promises, which included the addition of one factory per district and one dam per village.
