I am Sorry, It Was A Mistake -Nana Akufo Addo Goes On His Kneels Over Cape Coast Harbour Debate After NPP’s 2020 Manifesto Showed Portion That Such Promise Was Made.
The President of Ghana, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo Addo says his promise to build a harbour at Cape Coast while campaigning in the run-up to the 2020 elections was a mistake.
According to him, he was only human and could make a mistake at any point in time, saying the initial plan was not to build a harbour at Cape Coast.
President Akufo Addo, the then Candidate for New Patriotic Party (NPP) promised to build a harbour in the Central Regional capital while campaigning in the run-up to the 2020 elections.
However, later, he said the commitment was never to build a harbour, rather, a landing site. This certainly did not go well with the people of Cape Coast after their hopes were raised. During an interview with Peacefm on Thursday, October 21, 2021, the President said,”It was a mistake and I have to apologise to the people of Cape Coast.”
