After SC Ruling: Nana Addo Assures Of Free Education

The 2012 Presidential candidate of the New Patriotic Party, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo Addo has reiterated his promise to the nation, assuring Ghanaians that his party will not relent in providing them with free education when they come to power.

He urged Ghanaians to repose confidence in the NPP as the party will ensure its “free education” policy is fully implemented.

He said this during his thanksgiving service today at the Church of Pentecost, Dr Wyatt Assembly in Accra.

Delivering his thanksgiving speech, Nana Addo alluded to the NPP’s election petition, it filed at the Supreme Court, saying though the rank and file of the party did not agree with the court verdict; they however accepted it to ensure peace prevails.

According to him, the petitioners in consultation with the National Executive Council of the party decided not to seek a review in the interest of the nation.

Touting the NPP leaders as “learned folks”, Nana Addo stressed that the party does not harbor any corruptible practices but put the interest of the nation first before their political ambitions.

“We don’t want any mayhem in the nation…We do not agree with the Judges but if they have said it, we accept. We won’t pursue it again. And when you send your case to the court, you accept it as a “courageous man”…So, we’ve let it go; we won’t seek a review,” he stated, adding that “before NPP and NDC was birthed, Ghana was already in place. So, in all that we do; we should remember that Ghana’s progress, peace and unity must take precedence over everything.”

He also advised the Christian community to “tell the truth at all times and also eschew corruption.”

Also, during the function, the General Secretary of the Ghana Pentecostal and Charismatic Churches, Apostle S.Y Antwi commended Nana Addo for accepting the court ruling and further advised the party to unite in order to help build the nation.

He urged Nana Addo and the party’s entire leadership to note that though their victory may tarry, they should wait on God because “it shall surely come.”

Present at the service were the 2012 Vice Presidential candidate of the party, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia and his wife, Samira Bawumia, General Secretary of the party, Lawyer Kwadwo Owusu Afriyie, Former Foreign Affairs Minister, Hackman Owusu Agyemang, Yaw Osafo Marfo, Former Finance Minister and other dignitaries.
