Ghana’s president, His Excellency Nana Addo Dankwa Akuffo Addo delivered the State of the Nation Address on Thursday, February 21, 2019.
The president touched on a host of issues including the topic on vigilante groups in politics. Addressing vigilantism, Nana Addo told the two political parties in the country, the NPP and the NDC to fix the problem.
“I want to use the platform of this message to make a sincere, passionate appeal to the leaders of the two main political parties in our country, NPP and NDC, to come together, as soon as possible, preferably next week, to agree on appropriate measures to bring an end to this worrying and unacceptable phenomenon of vigilantism in our body politic,” Nana Addo said.
He also admonished Ghanaians to take lessons from the Menzgold saga saying:
“As the authorities try to unravel the intricacies of the Menzgold saga I admonish Ghanaians to learn the necessary lessons, even as State institutions work to bring a resolution and those who indulged in criminal activities, are brought to justice.”
One of the highlights of the president’s address to the nation was at the end when he showed millennials he still got it when it comes to being romantic with his better half.
