The President, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has apologized to the people of Cape Coast for saying that he never promised to build a harbour in the Central Region

He has, therefore, asked the residents of Cape Coast to forgive him for the blunder during a recent radio interview.

Some residents of Cape Coast had been waiting on the government for the construction of a new harbour because the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) promised to establish such a facility in the area during the run-up to the 2020 general elections.

But their hopes were almost dashed after President Akufo-Addo in a recent interview said his party never made such a promise.

“The commitment was never to build a harbour; it was to build a landing site,” Akufo-Addo said on Cape Coast-based Eagle FM on Monday.

The comment by the President during his tour of the Central Region earlier this week generated controversy, as videos of the Vice President reiterating the promise from the NPP manifesto resurfaced on social media.

But in an interview on Peace FM on Thursday morning, President Akufo-Addo said his earlier comments about the Cape Coast harbour was a mistake.

He said his government is already working on a harbour at Elmina, and having one at Cape Coast as well.
