It is an honour to be here this afternoon, and to be in the midst of brilliant boys and girls. The results of the 2016 Basic Education Certificate Examination have been described as the best so far by the Ghana Education Service. Out of 461,013 students who sat for the examination, you, present here, distinguished yourselves amongst the lot. Today, Mother Ghana celebrates you. You deserve all the commendation and recognition being accorded you today. Congratulations.

I am honoured by the invitation to be here at this year’s WASSA. This is my second WASSA since assuming the high office of the land. I much enjoyed my first, which was with the Police Service, and I know that I will enjoy this too, my maiden one at Burma Camp as Commander-in-Chief.

It is my great pleasure to welcome you all to Ghana, and to the third, 2017 Development Finance Forum. As we say in Ghana, “Akwaaba!” You are amongst a people who pride themselves on their sense of hospitality. I hope that, by the end of your visit, you will agree with this claim.

It is with considerable pleasure that I am participating in the 4th Rotary International District 9102 Conference, which is being held in our capital city of Accra. Those of you who come from beyond our shores are welcome amongst a people who pride themselves on their sense of hospitality. Akwaaba is our word of welcome, and I hope you enjoy your stay with us. 

Good evening, and let me welcome you to the seat of the Presidency of the Republic. I am here, tonight, to perform a very important duty. This is the first time, since assuming, by the grace of God and the generosity of the Ghanaian people, the high office of President of the Republic, I have the honour of presenting credentials to the first set of persons appointed by me, in accordance with Article 74(1) of the Constitution, to safeguard and promote the image and interests of our nation outside these shores.
