Politicians are to serve the nation - President Kufuor
Accra, Jan. 4, GNA - President John Agyekum Kufuor on Tuesday said the essential work of politicians was service to the nation, a duty that is sacrificial and tasking.
He said: "This is why the nation should continue to support and encourage these first servants of the State".
In the last part of his Nation's Address to Parliament in Accra, President Kufuor said, "because of unhappy examples in the past, the general society tends to be suspicious and mistrustful of politicians". He said: "My hope is that in due course, even as society and the economy improve, the day will come when the essential role of the politician will be better appreciated to justify the little comforts that society must accord them."
