Here are some reactions after Napo's claim that Akufo-Addo's performance is better than Nkrumah

There has been varied reactions and discontent following Dr Matthew Opoku Prempeh's remarks comparing President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo's performance as president to that of Ghana's first President, Dr Kwame Nkrumah.


Dr Matthew Opoku Prempeh alias NAPO said no president in the history of Ghana has helped to develop Ghana more than President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.

NAPO praised President Akufo-Addo for his contributions to Ghana's development, drawing a comparison to the transformational leadership of Kwame Nkrumah.

He highlighted various projects initiated under President Akufo-Addo's administration, including the Free Senior High School (SHS) policy and infrastructural developments, suggesting that these achievements echo the pioneering spirit of Nkrumah's era.

Speaking at his official unveiling event at the Jubilee Park in Kumasi on Tuesday (July 9, 2024), Dr Opoku Prempeh said: Since independence in 1957, no president has helped Ghana as much as Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo. From 1957 to now, not even Kwame Nkrumah has moved Ghana forward and protected it like Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.

He disclosed that in the history of Ghana since 1957, no president has helped Ghana more than Nana Addo, even including the first President Osagyefo Kwame Nkrumah, who fought for the independence of Ghana.

The comparison has sparked widespread debate and criticism, with many citizens arguing that such a parallel is unfounded and diminishes Nkrumah's historical significance.

Prempeh's comparison has not been well received by a significant portion of the Ghanaian populace.

Critics argued that while Nana Addo has indeed implemented notable policies, equating his leadership to that of Nkrumah is an overstatement.

Many Ghanaians view Nkrumah as a towering figure in the country's history, whose legacy extends beyond national borders to his advocacy for African unity and anti-colonialism.

Below are the reactions from some Ghanaians.
