Most Rev. Prof. Daniel Yinkah Sarfo has stated that President Akuffo Addo has performed better than his predecessors and for that reason Ghanaians should be grateful.
On the above premise, he has indicated that anyone who criticizes the governance delivery of Nana Addo by saying that he has not done much as a President is an ungrateful person.
Contrasting the tenure of Dr. Nkrumah with that of Akuffo Addo, he said that the former did not do much, explaining that the amount of money Kwame Nkrumah inherited from the then colonial masters was enough money he could have used to transform the country on a much larger scale.
“Nkrumah came and met money handed over by Britain and was just dashing them out to countries like Guinea and other Africa nations. He wanted to be the head of State of the whole of Africa which even his contemporaries did not support.”
Unlike Nkrumah, the Anglican Archbishop Emeritus of Internal Province of Ghana/Anglican Bishop of Kumasi continued to indicate that President Akuffo Addo is doing the best he can even with the limited resources.
For Rev. Prof. Daniel Yinkah Sarfo, the governance under the present leadership of Nana Addo is as though Ghana has now gained independence which according to him is characterized by the speedy execution of interventions including the construction of roads, Free S.H.S, payment of electricity bills during COVID-19 lockdown period, provision of ambulances for districts among others.
“If after all these projects you speak against his leadership God may punish you.”
“…Of all the past Presidents who do you think has performed better than Akuffo Addo? I cannot support anybody who is saying that President Nana Addo has not done much for this country. Never! Such a person is not realistic or objective enough”, he added.
The Anglican Priest made the above statement in Kumasi on Monday 26th September 2022 when he was addressing church leaders on the first day of a 5-day conference.
The event was dubbed: Transformation Conference and was held under the theme “THE ROLE OF THE CHURCH IN GHANA’S TRANSFORMATION”.
