‘Your’ Kwame Nkrumah didn’t develop Ghana like Akufo-Addo – NAPO

The running mate of the New Patriotic Party in the general elections of 2024, Dr. Matthew Opoku Prempeh, has praised President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo’s administration as the best in Ghana’s 67 years of independence.

Speaking to a group of party leaders and admirers on Tuesday, June 9, 2024, in Kumasi for his official unveiling, Dr. Matthew Opoku Prempeh stressed that President Akufo-Addo is the most visionary leader in Ghanaian history, surpassing even Osagyefo Dr. Kwame Nkrumah.

“It has never happened in the history of Ghana. If President Akufo-Addo retires, I can hit my chest and state that since the nation’s inception in 1957, there has not been a president who has helped the state more than Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.

“I am saying that from 1957 to now, whether you pick ‘your’ Kwame Nkrumah… there is nobody who has led Ghana and protected the country or developed Ghana more than Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo,” he stated.

The National Executive Council of the ruling NPP, led by Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, proposed Dr. Matthew Opoku Prempeh, also referred to as NAPO, as his running partner. This nomination was accepted unanimously.

President Nana Akufo-Addo spoke at the Bawumia-NAPO ticket’s launching event in Kumasi, expressing trust in it. The party’s flagbearer also defended his selection of the incumbent Manhyia South Member of Parliament and Minister for Energy as his running mate.

Speakers at the event included former flagbearer candidates as well as national and regional officers of the party. Additionally, they conveyed confidence in the party’s ability to prevail in the next election, particularly against the National Democratic Congress, which is the primary opposition.
