Former President John Dramani Mahama has delivered his new year message to Ghanaians via his official twitter account ahead of the 2020 elections.
He said, “Within the last 365 days, there has been joy, happiness and fulfilled dreams for a few; but pain, anguish and unfulfilled promises for the majority.
“In all things, however, let us continue to be thankful to the Almighty God because we have the most valuable gift- the gift of life.
“In our personal lives and in our family struggles, in our relationships with others, in our business commitments and in all other endeavors and engagements, we are presented with a new opportunity to change things for the better, in order to triumph over the setbacks we encountered.
“One of our nation’s foremost literally icons, the late Professor Kofi Awoonor, declared in one of his writings that, “I believe in hope, but even in its absence, I believe in the possibility of hope”.
Therefore, even in our darkest and most difficult moments, we must remember to hold on to hope. Let us hope and work for a better and prosperous Ghana in 2020 and beyond. Let us hope and work for a peaceful Ghana that offers opportunities for all, not just a few.
The world has come to expect nothing sort of inspiration from the name GHANA, so we cannot begin to see ourselves any less. The year 2020 is an election year, and the eyes of the world would continue to be fixed on us.
We need to meet the high standards set by previous Electoral Commissions and even better it.”
