Politicians who encourage tribal, religious views should be rejected - Akufo-Addo

President Akufo-Addo has advised Ghanaians to ignore politicians who incite tribal and religious opinions.

According to him, politicians fond of inciting tribal and religious sentiments have no message, particularly to strengthen multiparty democracy, diversity, peace and unity of purpose.

"My advice to the electorate is that they reject such people as we get close to the 2024 general election."

Speaking to the chiefs and people of Bantama in Kumasi at the inauguration of an e-library project, President Akufo-Addo told the people to be cautious about their choice of leaders for the country.

"What matters most is that we give the nod to leaders whose competency, track record and integrity cannot be doubted."

"We cannot entrust the nation's destiny into the hands of incompetent leaders to the detriment of our sustainable growth," he said.

He adds that the 2024 presidential and parliamentary elections will be vital because they will determine the nation's direction in its development agenda.

President Nana Akufo-Addo said it is fair for Vice-President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia to lead the New Patriotic Party (NPP) as a presidential candidate because of his experience, expertise and track record. 

Bawumia is an honest man with substance whom Ghanaians can trust to successfully spearhead the country's affairs.

Appealing to the people of Bantama, Akufo-Addo said the NPP had shown dedication to Ghana's development and growth over the years; therefore, they should vote for the New Patriotic Party in next year's polls to ensure progress.

He applauded the Member of Parliament for Bantama and Minister of Works and Housing, Francis Asenso-Boakye, for constructing the e-library project.

While asking the people to own the project, he underscored the need for them also to give the MP another mandate in next year's elections to enable him to promote their welfare and wellbeing.

Asenso-Boakye said the project was indicative of the government's vision of improving the standard of education for the benefit of the Ghanaian youth.
