The presidential nominee of the opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP), Nana Akufo-Addo, has described former President John Agyekum Kufuor as the most outstanding president of the fourth republic.
Nana Akufo-Addo, speaking ahead of the public lecture on the state of the economy on Thursday September 8 at the National Theatre to be delivered by his running mate Dr Mahamudu Bawumia, was full of praise for Mr Kufuor for accepting to chair the occasion.
“Let me say a big thank you especially to the outstanding statesman whom I had the privilege to serve under both as Attorney General and as Foreign Minister, John Agyekum Kufuor, who despite the passage of time is still so committed to Ghanaian welfare and good governance. We are so grateful, sir, that you’ve turned up today to chair this occasion for us. I know when I say this it causes a lot of problems for a lot of people, but there can be no doubt that he has been the most outstanding president of the fourth republic. No doubt about it,” Nana Akufo-Addo stated.
“Thank you all for appearing here today, and we are going on and we are going to win December.”
Dr Bawumia’s lecture is on the theme: ‘The State of the Economy – A Foundation of Concrete or Straw?’
