Even Kwame Nkrumah Would Be Proud Of President Akufo-Addo
The Ashanti Regional Chairman of the New Patriotic Party, Mr. Bernard Antwi-Boasiako, has stated emphatically that Ghana’s first President would be very proud of his current successor.
Speaking on Wontumi tv and radio, the NPP Chairman stated that President Akufo-Addo has surpassed the achievements of Dr. Kwame Nkrumah and set a standard that would be used to judge all other leaders.
Mr. Antwi-Boasiako’s commendation follows President Akufo-Addo’s plea to Ghanaians to continue to rally behind him to defeat the Coronavirus pandemic.
He explained that the strategic measures of President Akufo-Addo have saved Ghana’s economy from collapsing despite the challenges the novel COVID-19 has brought.
“Even Kwame Nkrumah would be proud of President Akufo-Addo”, Chairman Wontumi said.
Chairman Wontumi maintained that even Kwame Nkrumah would be proud of President Akufo-Addo judging from the massive development his government, has introduced in Ghana.
He also praised former President Kufour for laying a solid foundation for the New Patriotic Party when it comes to proper governance.
In his 8th COVID-19 update on measures taken against the spread of the Coronavirus, President Akufo-Addi stated that “This is the time for sacrifice, so that we do not have to bear a greater cost in the future”.
President Akufo-Addo revealed that he was unhappy that despite the closure of our borders, some Ghanaians were aiding some West African nationals to enter into the country illegally.
“Even more disturbing is the fact that several of the West Africans, who have been arrested, have later tested positive for the virus,” President Akufo-Addo said.
He described such act as unpatriotic, which must be stopped.
“We cannot continue to allow a few persons, who are motivated by their own selfish, money-making interests, to endanger the lives of the rest of the population.
“Not only will persons who enter our country illegally be strictly dealt with, but so will Ghanaians who facilitate their entry. As I have said before, being a Ghanaian must mean that we look out for each other”, he cautioned.
