The Ghana Union of Traders’ Association (GUTA) has congratulated President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo on his reelection as President of Ghana after the 7 December polls with a call on him to maintain his virtues that endeared him to the masses.
GUTA in a congratulatory statement signed by its General Secretary, Alpha A. Shaban said it has closely observed and noticed with admiration the “humility, diligence, dexterity, hard work, integrity, sincerity, patience, tolerance and decorum, among other virtues that the president elect exhibited before, during and after the December 7 general election,” which according to the Association is “worthy of commendation.”
GUTA noted that it hopes the President will note and maintain those qualities and virtues.
The Association prayed for God to grant Mr Akufo-Addo good health, strength and “increase him in knowledge, wisdom and courage to carry out his duties, as well as guard and guide him to the right path in all his endeavours.”
