President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo will today November 4, 2020 begin a four-day tour of the Ashanti Region.
Akufo-Addo in September toured the region for three-days where he inspected some ongoing projects and also commissioned others in parts of the region.
The President has also inspected the new terminal which is being constructed at the Kumasi Airport.
President Akufo-Addo was met by supporters of the New Patriotic Party, including beneficiaries of the Free SHS policy, who lined up on major streets of the Kumasi metropolis.
During his visit to the region he paid a courtesy call on the Asantehene at the Manhyia Palace.
The Asantehene, Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, assured him that, going into the 7th December presidential and parliamentary elections, his record in office “will speak for him”.
Addressing a durbar held in honour of the President, the Asantehene thanked the President for his continuous visit to Manhyia, both as leader of the opposition before the 2016 elections and as President of the Republic.
To this end, he stated that “Your good works in office will speak for you going forward into the election. We, in Asanteman, remember, we do not forget. Asanteman will, therefore, remember your good works on election day. All I can offer you is prayers and blessings.”
Even though Chiefs and traditional rulers are not to engage in partisan politics vote, the Asante noted that “we vote. We will vote based on the good works of the candidate.”
