Kan Dapaah: Ghana needs Akuffo-Addo now
Former Defense and Energy Minister, Albert Kan Dapaah says Nana Akufo-Addo is the only one capable of taking Ghana out of the challenges confronting the nation.
According to him, Nana Akufo-Addo has prepared himself enough to better manage this country.
“I think he is what Ghana needs now”, Mr. Kan Dapaah said Wednesday, in a chat with Mark Okraku Mantey, host of the ‘The Profiler’ Show on Hitz 103.9 FM.
Nana Akufo-Addo is one of seven candidates hoping to lead the New Patriotic Party into the 2016 presidential election despite failing to make good that opportunity twice- 2008 and 2012. Other contestants are Alan Kyerematen, Dr. Kofi Konadu Apraku, Stephen Asamoah Boateng, Kofi Osei Ameyaw and Francis Adai Nimoh.
But the former Minister, who closely worked with the lead contenders- Akufo-Addo and Alan Kyerematen- firmly believes, the former has taken time to build himself for the highest position on the land.
His preference for Akufo-Addo is also because, the former Akyem Abuakwa South MP has proven beyond measure that he will be able to stand up to all tests and issues of corruption.
“I like Nana because, I believe he can stand up to any test and corruption,” said the MP for Afigya Sekyere West who once supported the candidature of Alan Kyerematen.
Mr. Kan Dapaah was the Ashanti Regional Representative on the National Council of the NPP and member of the Finance and Economic Affairs Committee of the party from 1992-1996.
He won the Afigya-Sekyere seat at the 1996 parliamentary election and has held since seat. In 1996, he was elected as the President of the Institute of Chartered Accountants, Ghana, as well as the Vice-President, Association of Accountancy Bodies in West Africa.
He became Minister for Energy in the John Kufuor government after the NPP won power in the 2000 elections.
