President John Mahama has thanked all his followers on Facebook for helping him reach the one million milestone, saying their interactions with him on the social networking site have made him a better leader.
“We are one million already on Facebook; our community, like a seed of hope, has been growing constantly over the years and has turned into a robust tree,” he said in a video on his official page.
According to Mr Mahama, who is running for a second term in office on the ticket of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), “The ultimate objective of politics is human interaction for progress and development and Facebook offers us the opportunity to exchange views, ideas, and emotions in a direct manner. Because of this exchange, you know me better and I feel I know and understand you better too. You’ve made me a better leader and, in a sense, a better person. I hope that in turn, I have made you proud of our mother Ghana and ready to stand for what is right to bring hope to all.
“I am and forever will be one of you. And this is why as your president, I fight hard each day to make sure our dear nation moves forward. There’s a tremendous lot yet to do but our progress is undeniable, especially when it comes to development of social infrastructure which has created some decent number of jobs already. Everything I do, I do it with you in my heart, and with you, the good people of Ghana in mind. So, let us continue on this track. God bless you and many thanks to all of you for this one million milestone.”
