I only have influence but not power – Gabby Otchere Darko

Contrary to popular belief among some members of the public, corporate lawyer and prominent member of the New Patriot Party (NPP), Gabby Otchere Darko, has stated that he has influence but not power.

on November 2019, the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) listed President Akufo-Addo’s cousin, Mr. Otchere Darko, as Ghana’s De Facto Prime Minister on their list of 51 relatives, friends, and cronies in government.

Many people think that despite not holding a political position, he is very powerful in government circles since he can pull strings whenever he pleases.

However, Gabby Otchere Darko responded to the matter in an interview with Bola Ray on Starr Chat on Starr FM on Thursday, stating that assertions about his immense power in government are merely the product of political rivals.

”I have influence but I don’t have any power. You’ve come to me a few times to get things done but couldn’t help you. A powerful person makes decisions, and who can make things happen. Someone with influence will try to persuade but at the end of the day, the responsibility is not with me.,  it is with the person who makes decisions. So that is the person with power.”
