‘I Made A Mistake On The Cape Coast Habour Comment' - Akufo Addo

President Nana Akufo-Addo has admitted that he made a mistake in his comment regarding the construction of a harbour in Cape Coast.

In a recent interview on Cape Coast-based Eagle FM, he denied that the New Patriotic Party (NPP) had made any commitment to undertake the said infrastructural project in the region.

“Let me just confess it. I made a mistake,” he said on Accra-based Peace FM’s Kokrokoo on Thursday. He added, “Presidents are human after all, we are not supermen. We make mistakes.”

Justifying his statement, President Akufo-Addo referenced Page 88 of the NPP’s 2020 Manifesto, dubbed Leadership of Service: Protecting our Progress, Transforming Ghana for All.

Per the document, he outlined a few of the sites slated for the Central Region, which he said are at various stages of completion as far as Phase One is concerned.

According to him, “in looking at the manifesto – and I try to do that before I go – I saw one page which talks about the landing site but I did don’t go any further.”

In the interview, he rendered an apology to the people of the region. “I have to apologise to the people of Cape Coast and the Central region,” he added.
