Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo Addo At The Award Ceremony Of Ghana’s Most Influential Personality For 2013 At Movenpick Hotel, Accra, On April 30 2014.

He said in a speech delivered after receiving the award:”I understand that what earned me this award is the now famous election petition and my reaction to the majority verdict of the Supreme Court, a reaction which helped reinforce the peace and stability of Ghana. Obviously, I would have preferred to get such a prestigious award under happier circumstances, but to quote Shakespeare in “As You Like It”:

“Sweet are the uses of adversity,
Which, like the toad, ugly and venomous,
Wears yet a precious jewel in his head;
And this our life, exempt from public haunt,
Finds tongues in trees, books in the running brooks,
Sermons in stones, and good in every thing.”
