Napo faces backlash over Kwame Nkrumah-Akufo-Addo development comparison

Social media platforms have been abuzz following recent comments by Dr. Matthew Opoku Prempeh comparing the achievements of President Akufo-Addo to those of Ghana’s first President, Dr. Kwame Nkrumah.

Announcing the candidacy of Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, the flag bearer of the New Patriotic Party, in Kumasi on Tuesday, Dr. Opoku Prempeh, aka Napo, stated that no president, including the honorable Dr. Nkrumah, has developed Ghana as much as President Akufo-Addo.

“Since our independence in 1957 to date, we have never had a president who has helped Ghana like Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo. From 1957 to date, I say you can bring in your Kwame Nkrumah… we have never had a president who has protected Ghana and taken the country forward like Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo,” he explained.

The controversial statement sparked widespread backlash, with many users expressing anger and disbelief.

Critics on social media argue that Dr. Nkrumah’s contributions to Ghana’s independence and infrastructural development are unparalleled, and that this comparison is inappropriate and disrespectful.
