Former President John Agyekum Kufuor seems to be up in arms against critics of President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.

He said he was particularly upset about critics of the President, who have sarcastically named the President as “King Promise”.

According to the former President, King Promise, to his understanding, is meant for a person who only promises but fails to deliver.

He strongly argued that President Akufo-Addo had almost fulfilled all his 2016 campaign promises, for which reason “King Promise” doesn’t fit him.

Mr. Kufuor was addressing the people that witnessed a sod-cutting ceremony for the construction of a school in his honour at Dabaa in the Ashanti Region.

Setting the records straight, Mr. Kufuor said the best nickname or title for President Akufo-Addo is “Promise and Deliver King.”

The former President asked, “How can you give King Promise title to President Akufo-Addo? This name or title is unacceptable. King Promise title fits leaders who only give plenty of promises and yet they fail to fulfil them,” he insisted.

Mr. Kufuor said President Akufo-Addo had virtually fulfilled all his campaign promises and deserved commendation.

The country, he observed, had within three years been returned to the path of prosperity by the NPP government “so the President deserves Promise and Deliver King”.
