President-elect, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has strongly dismissed claims that he would sack Krobo farmers from Akyem lands.
Prior to the December 7 general elections, there were claims by Akufo-Addo’s opponents that should the then NPP flagbearer win the elections, all Krobo farmers working at Akyem lands or in any Akan-speaking area would be driven away because they had always voted for the National Democratic Congress.
However, speaking at Manyo Krobo on Wednesday in the Eastern region Akufo-Addo said Krobo indigenes living anywhere in the country should feel safe.
“For many years propaganda of our opponents especially among the Krobo people who are living among the Akyem areas was that if I came, they will be in jeopardy. I want to tell you before the entire Krobo people that they should all feel secured, no danger is going to come to them in Akyem because of me. Not at all.”
“I am determined to work with all the people of our counry to improve the economy of our nation and bring prosperity to all parts of Ghana. And for that to happen I need peace and unity in our nation. I am not the one coming to disturb anybody wherever they are in Ghana. The people of Krobo in Akyem are secure, safe and they will continue to be safe and live dignified lives there,” he added.
The President-elect also assured to fulfil all promises he made to Ghanaians prior to his election to the highest office.
“Let me assure you that the pledges I made, particularly the one district, one factory pledge in the course of my campaign are going to be fulfilled to the latter. I am very grateful for the confidence that Tetteh Agblezie III has reposed in me. I am grateful to you sir and I will not let you down,” Akuf-Addo said at Manya Krobo as part of his ‘Thank you Tour’ of the Eastern Region.
