According to Ghanaian actor Nana Kofi Agyemang, better known by his stage as Oboy Siki, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo is the nation’s most dishonest leader.
He pointed out that despite being dubbed as “incorruptible” by the New Patriotic Party (NPP) during the campaign, President Akufo-Addo has done appallingly un the battle against corruption.
He based his claim on President Akufo-Addo’s apparent lack of concern for the situation and inability to address crises involving corruption in the administration.
On Wednesday, August 7, 2023, Oboy Siki said in an interview with GHPage TV that Akufo-Addo’s presidency had seen more corruption than the previous one.
“Nana Addo was touted by the NPP as ‘incorruptible’ but currently, since I was born into this world, he [Akufo-addo] is the only president I have seen with the highest level of corruption, but NPP lied to us that he is not corrupt.
“When he [Akufo-Addo] visited Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, he [Otumfuo] said I know you very well, and you wouldn’t need money for anything because you’ve lived your life already but leave a legacy behind. According to the current happenings, he [Akufo-Addo] did not heed his [Otumfuo] advice,” the actor said.
Oboy Siki justified his assertion by pinpointing some of the corruption-related scandals that the Akufo-Addo-led government failed to deal with.
“Initially, If you want to see Akufo-Addo at the presidency, you have to pay. The ‘cash-for-seat scandal amounting to $20,000.’ That was the moment he failed [the fight against corruption].
“Akufo-Addo has a new title called ‘clearing agent’ because he has not been able to clear himself from various government scandals, including the PDS scandal, the Galamsey scandal, and others,” he noted.
