On behalf of the government, the first lady, my wife Rebecca, my daughters, grandchildren and my family, I wish all Ghanaians and people the world over, a Merry Christmas and happy, prosperous New Year.
As we celebrate Christmas, with its glad tidings of great joy, let us remind ourselves of the beautiful story of the birth of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
The Prophet Isaiah summed it up when he said, “Unto us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government shall be on his shoulder and his name shall be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.”
So, let us rededicate ourselves to him, and remain committed to the cardinal principles of Christianity, which are faith, love, charity, and reconciliation.
Let also take a moment to reflect on our country, on how far God has brought us, and on the many blessings, especially of freedom, peace, and stability he continues to shower upon us.
We have good reason to be thankful to God for the modest successes we chalked over the course of 2019.
