Nana Addo’s governance style is the best for Africa – Nana Boakye

Accra, Sept 14, GNA – Mr Dennis Amfo-Sefah,
Constituency Chairman of the ruling New Patriotic Party in Tema West, has rated
statecraft by President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo as the best on the African
continent.

Speaking in an exclusive interview in Accra,
the Chairman who is affectionately called Nana Boakye said the exceptional
nature of the President’s style of governance was what led to exceptional
programmes and results in Ghana.

“The Bible says that by the fruit of
somebody, you shall know him. By the fruits of President Akufo-Addo, we know
him by the rule of law through which appointees accused of corruption are
suspended and asked to make themselves available to investigators,” Nana Boakye
said.

He argued that on the African continent, the
only President who was actively disciplining his own over corruption was
President Akufo-Addo, “This is why there seems to be a rampancy in corruption
scandals; the reason we are seeing more corruption issues is that the
President, unlike others on the continent, is confronting the corruption.

The President recently sacked the top brass
of the National Youth Authority over corruption and also suspended the Chief
Executive Officer of the Public Procurement Authority and asked him to make
himself available to the Special Prosecutor for investigations.

“By the fruits of Akufo-Addo, we have Free
SHS, One District One Factory, Planting for Food and Jobs and rearing for food
and jobs. Rare programmes on the African continent.

“The records are there, it’s not as if we
are making it up, last year, Ghana did not import a single grain of corn
because of the bumper harvest that resulted from the Planting for Food and Jobs
programme,” Nana Boakye said.

According to him, the exceptional leadership
that President Akufo-Addo was leading made him a star among his peers, many of
whom are trying to replicate the groundbreaking policies that President
Akufo-Addo has been implementing in Ghana.

Nana Boakye’s comments come on the heels of
a series of conferences in Ghana at which President Akufo-Addo received massive
praise from his peers for his bold policies which have resonated around the
world.

At a recent conference on food security in
Accra, participants took turns to salute the Ghanaian President for the
Planting for Food and Jobs programme, which they said was a living testament to
the fact that Africa’s potential for self-sustenance was practical and
achievable.

President Akufo-Addo also received praise
from President Donald Trump of the United States and former UK Prime Minister,
Theresa May, for the implementation of the Free SHS programme.

Nana Boakye said, the President was not
receiving similar praises from within his own country because, “a prophet is
usually not respected in his own home.”
