The newly unveiled running mate to the flagbearer of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Dr Matthew Opoku Prempeh has said that no president in the history of Ghana has helped to develop the country more than President Akufo-Addo.

According to Dr Mahamudu Bawumia’s running mate, since taking over the presidency of Ghana, President Akufo-Addo has steered affairs of the country to the admiration of all.

“I can boldly say that if the history of Ghana is told from 1957, we have never had a president that has helped Ghana more than Nana Akufo-Addo. I mean from 1957, even including your Kwame Nkrumah, none of them has protected Ghana and developed the country more than Nana Akufo-Addo,” he said in Twi at his official unveiling event at the Jubilee Park in Kumasi on July 9, 2024.

Dr Opoku Prempeh stressed that, “President Akufo-Addo has developed this country to the admiration of all. Therefore, we will not allow what happened in 2008 to repeat itself. It will be most appropriate for Nana Akufo-Addo to hand over to his junior brother, Dr Bawumia.”

Meanwhile, speaking with Alfred Ocansey on Ghana Tonight, a Political Communications Specialist, Prof Kobby Mensah said by this statement, Dr Opoku Prempeh has proven his critics right.

He added that this statement, coming few hours after his uncle, Asantehene Otumfuo Osei Tutu II had advised him to purge himself of the arrogant tag, means more work remains to be done on NAPO’s public communication.

“It is unfortunate that few hours after the eminent chief had advised him to prove his critics wrong, he goes about denigrating a Ghanaian leader of international repute. Someone who has been adjudged as a millennium leader in Africa {Dr Kwame Nkrumah}. It shows that there is some work that needs to be done with his public communication,” Prof Mensah noted.
