President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has enlightened Ghanaians on the need to maintain peace and security as the surest way to woo foreign investors.

The president, who commended the security agencies for their critical roles in maintaining peace and security in the country, has pledged to continue providing the necessary logistics and support for the personnel to facilitate their work.

Minister for the Interior, Ambrose Dery, represented President Akufo-Addo and delivered a speech at the 25th anniversary of the coronation of Torgbui Adzonugaga Amenya Fiti V, the Paramount Chief of Aflao, and the climax of the Godigbe Festival.

Mr Dery said the president was grateful for the peace in Ghana amid economic challenges and terrorism threats in neighbouring countries.

President Akufo-Addo has therefore urged all the citizenry to work effortlessly to ensure the safety of all.

According to President Akufo-Addo, peace and security are the major factors investors consider before investing in any country, and Ghana stands to gain due to many years of sustained stability.

“The existence of peace and security are necessary prerequisites for the country’s economic development. Ghana as a country has been blessed over time to remain stable and peaceful,” he said.

“For the last two consecutive years, Ghana has been noted as the second most peaceful country in Africa, behind the Island of Mauritius… I wish to, therefore, call on all of you to join hands in a collective effort to ensure that Ghana continues to be peaceful and safe for us all to achieve the goals of government”.

This year’s Godigbe festival was on the theme: “25 Years of Inspirational Leadership and the Restoration of the Rights and Privileges of the Aflawuawo.”

Former president John Dramani Mahama and other chiefs from the republics of Togo and Benin also graced the occasion.

President Akufo-Addo again urged the people of Aflao to ensure that peace and security always prevail in their jurisdictions.
