Former President John Agyekum Kufuor has rated President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo and his Vice President, Dr Mahamudu Bawumia high in terms of success in political leadership.
According to him, “the hallmark of our president [Akufo-Addo] and his vice [Bawumia], is “beautifully articulated leadership.”
Addressing a National Council meeting of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) on Saturday in Accra, where President Akufo-Addo and Vice President Bawumia were outdoored as the NPP’s flagbearer and running mate respectively for the 2020 general elections, Mr Kufuor described President Akufo-Addo as a “very experienced politician.”
He expressed hope that the electorate will give him the “mandate again to continue with the work that he started so ably.”
“We thought they were promising too much in 4 years”
“Initially some of us even thought that they [Akufo-Addo and Bawumia] were promising too much for a four-year term of office but within three and half years, see what they have already achieved?…”
“I wouldn’t say we are perfect, no, I don’t believe perfection in humanity, I don’t subscribe to that but even as I admit we are not perfect, I tell you, we have…, ’’
“In human affairs, any leader that can achieve something like 70, 80 percent is almost like a saint and this leadership [Akufo-Addo and Bawumia] is really working towards realizing very high degree of success for political leadership and this is why I believe in the coming election, and I pray God will give us life and God will also touch the heart of Ghanaians across the board, so as we march towards the December election, Ghanaians will not allow pettiness to divert us from the vision, the course.
