Christmas And New Year Message
We have a great deal to be thankful for as we reflect on what by every measure, has been a momentous year for our Party, the NPP, and for our beloved country Ghana!
As we join Christians all over the world to mark this Christmas, let us take a moment to remember those less fortunate, the many who will go hungry, the many without shelter, and the many who continue to suffer the scourge and ravages of war and conflict, who at this time, need that message of "love, joy, peace and goodwill to all men".
It is my abiding hope that this message of Christmas will spur us on to do what is right, to lend that helping hand, and encourage us to work together to build a nation with enduring values, a nation where we will dwell in love and brotherliness, and at peace with one another, a nation we can all be proud of!
At home in Ghana, we have seen great strides being made by the Government of His Excellency President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo Addo, to deliver on our manifesto promises to Ghanaians. Hope has been renewed. A sense of national pride has been reignited. Ghana is working again!
Ours is indeed a blessed nation. Under the visionary leadership of President Akufo Addo and Vice President Mahamudu Bawumia, we have seen a raft of social policies that will transform our nation. I am confident that the rich talents of our people, and our nations full potential will be realised. A great deal remains to be done as we look forward to 2018. We must be vigilant. We must abhor any attiudes, actions or behaviours, from within or without, that will cause us to stumble, and derail our bold endeavour to build a nation that can rid itself of corruption, a truly just and equal society, founded on our shared values that guarantee individual liberties and equality of opportunity.
Here in the UK, there is a great deal we can be proud of. Our branch has remained vibrant. Our contribution to our Party's success has been duly recognised, and many of our number, have once again been called upon to help with the task of nation building. We have collaborated with other external branches in providing leadership that has ensured that our call for us, and indeed Ghanaians in the diaspora, to continue to play key roles at all levels of leadership in our Party, and in the democratic process in Ghana, is heard.
We can look forward to 2018, inspired by our collective resolve that has, over the past year, set our Party on a path of success. We have together, laid strong foundations. We must seek to deliver in all areas as we have promised. The task ahead will be hard, but that in part is why we will forge ahead with our bold agenda, minded, and humbled by the responsibilities of government, to ensure we deliver the equal opportunities, security and prosperity, that our people deserve.
As we celebrate Christmas, with our families and loved ones, I would like to, on behalf of the executives of NPP UK, and on my own behalf, wish you all, a Merry Christmas and a Happy and Prosperous New Year!
May God richly bless you all.
Chairman, NPP UK
