At a thanksgiving service at his Kyebi hometown in the Eastern Region, the president said the wise counsel and guidance he received from close associates helped in governing the nation leading to the fulfillment of promises made to the electorate.
The president on Thursday took another oath for a second and final term.

The Okyenhene, Osagyefo Amoatia Ofori Payin, on his part, said the country is blessed to have President Akufo-Addo as President.
According to him, the government’s achievements in the first term give him assurance of greater times ahead for the country.
