The government has resumed work a day after the declaration of the general elections by the Electoral Commission Minister for Information, Kojo Oppong Nkrumah has said.
Speaking at the Minister’s Press Briefing in Accra on Thursday, December 10, 2020, the Minister emphasized that government remains determined to wrap up its mandate for the year and hence, that informs its decision to get back to work right after the declaration of the general elections
“President Akufo-Addo and his appointees are already back to work a day after the declaration of results for the Presidential election to wrap up government business for the year. The President after his declaration as President-elect by the electoral commission has been back at work today, performing his official duties at the (Jubilee House) while he continues to receive congratulatory messages from colleague heads of state from in and around the continent,” he said.
This announcement comes on the back of a closely contested election between President Nana Akufo-Addo and his opponent predecessor John Dramani Mahama with the former edging the latter to secure reelection in what was largely a free and fair contest.
According to the Minister, the renewal of the President’s mandate is a testament to the confidence Ghanaians repose in his governance, policies, and leadership style.
He said the government will in the next four years focus on bettering the lives of Ghanaians through the creation of opportunities in key sectors of the economy.
