It serves no useful purpose at this time to want to take stock of the sad and unhappy events of the outgoing year. All we ask for is that in the ensuing year every effort should be made by government, to bring about relaxation to the prevailing difficulties and to end the DUMSOR once and for all.
It is not enough to claim or chant the slogan of ‘working for you’; as a matter of fact, we have to experience it in every facet of our daily lives.
Working for you, from the perspective of the Convention People’s Party mean, surmounting the threats to the growth, prosperity and the general happiness of the masses of the Ghanaian people. It also means ending economic exploitation by multinational cooperations in Ghana by ensuring that a reasonable predetermined amount of the profit of foreign companies be retained in the country.
Fair and just prices for our export commodities. Government must ensure a fair and just distribution of our wealth in order to drastically reduce and ultimately eliminate the prevalent poverty and inequality that has bedeviled our country today. there should be cleanliness in every nook and cranny of the country, corruption and bribery and its associate tendencies must be reduced extremely, and making every Ghanaian take delight and pride in being a Ghanaian.
Our President and his NDC government have destroyed our prosperity and have significantly reduced our dear country to a cynosure of hopelessness and despair. It is therefore dangerous for us to pace our aspiration, our safety, our development and our security in the hands of a party that cannot advance the true and strategic interest of Ghana. We all have a natural duty to make our country free and beautiful.
As we have said before, as a party, for certain historic reasons, The CPP is the conscience of Ghana and we will never waiver this responsibility which posterity has placed on us. We will not be taken in by those who pay lip-service to our course and we shall remain adamant in our bid to make Ghana work again. The achievements of the Convention Peoples Party are still supreme and unequaled.
It is on this basis that we ask the good people of Ghana to repose their confidence in us, so that, together we could secure greater glories for ourselves and generations yet unborn.
Fellow Ghanaians, let us resolve in the New Year to continue the struggle against the enemies of our independence and progress- against idleness, against dishonesty, against bribery and corruption, against ethnocentrism and against all forces which militates against our aspirations and welfare.
Ghana is for Ghanaians!
