Daily Guide – Hard work pays.

President Akufo-Addo has stressed the need for the country to honour its sons and daughters who distinguish themselves exceptionally in the service of the nation.

He believes it is the best way to crown their efforts.

This was when he held a farewell dinner for the immediate-past Chief Justice (CJ), Georgina Theodora Wood at the presidency last Friday.

Chief Justice Georgina Wood was not just the first female CJ of the land, but was also the longest-serving leader of the country’s judiciary in recent past.

Speaking at the event, President Akufo-Addo noted that “it is important for our country that we recognize and acknowledge exceptional service to our nation; and that is what our guest of honour has rendered to our people.”
