Speeches

I am very happy to be here this morning, and to be in the presence of the men and women whose toil, on a daily basis, feeds us, keeps us alive, and plays an important role towards the development of our country. Without the work of our farmers and fisherfolk, it is certain that we cannot realise the United Nations Sustainable Development Goal No.

We are met here this evening to commemorate the life of an extraordinary Ghanaian, a nationalist, selfless patriot, revered chief, eminent statesman, and one of the three founders of the Danquah-Dombo-Busia political tradition, which gave birth to the New Patriotic Party, the ruling party in Ghana. I am, of course, referring to Simon Diedong Dombo, the Duori Na, S.D Dombo of most blessed memory.

I begin with words from Holy Scripture, in Psalm 118 verse 24, and I quote, “This is the day the Lord has made; We will rejoice and be glad in it.” Today is a very happy day for me. It is a day when we begin the process of banishing the spectre of desperation, and restoring hope and dignity to our youth.
