I will remain controversial as long as I’m a politician - Nana Addo

I am no dull politician - President Akufo-Addo




Ghana’s President Nana Akufo-Addo says he will remain controversial and interesting as long as he is a politician.


Responding to critics about the independence day speech he delivered, Nana Addo said without controversies, politics does not become interesting.

He opined that it is okay if his utterances generated controversy. “I made a speech to the country which I tried to speak about how Ghana became Ghana. Everything I say has ended up to be a controversy, but that is how it should be. A politician who doesn’t generate controversy is a dull politician, and that is not an interesting politics.”

Speaking at a ‘Ghana 60 years on’ dinner on Thursday, March 9, 2017, he told his critics who claim he distorted Ghana’s history on independence day that they are too young to understand him.

“…The amusing part of this is that the people who did not live through the independence era, young people who came much after, claim I distorted the history of Ghana and belittled the role of Kwame Nkrumah,” he said.

But Akufo-Addo has suggested that his critics’ allegations are misleading. He noted that, the president of Zimbabwe, aged 93, who followed Ghana’s independence journey, commended him for the speech.

“The one man who lived through the era was here in Ghana at the time, embraced me for having enhanced the image of Kwame Nkrumah. And that tells you everything about Ghanaian politics, as President Mugabe gave me a big hug.”
