Nana Addo is the ‘worst’ president Ghana has ever had - Nii-Amasah Namoale

Former Member of Parliament (MP) for the La Dadekotopon constituency, Nii-Amasah Namoale has chided President Nana Akufo-Addo for preaching virtue to Ghanaians while he practices vice.

The former Deputy Minister of Food and Agriculture (MOFA) who is unhappy about the President’s disposition stated categorically that he has turned himself into a “walking contradiction”.

According to Mr Namoale, the President’s inability to deal with those involved in these scandals makes him a worse leader than all of his predecessors.

According to him, the President has been undertaking activities that he delightfully spoke against when he and the NPP were in opposition. After being voted for by Ghanaians and gaining power, Mr. Nii-Amasah Namoale noted the President is on a mission to operate a “family and friends” government; the very principle he preached against to win the hearts of Ghanaians during the 2016 elections,” he told Kwame Tutu on Anopa Nkomo on Accra based Kingdom FM 107.7.

“I knew his Excellency Nana Akufo Addo will be a bad president but I did not know it was going to be this bad.

According to him, “it is only under the NPP that security officers are beaten at the seat of government.”

Other cases that have emerged under Nana Addo’s administration include the sale of contaminated fuel involving the Bulk Oil Storage and Transportation Company, government’s handling of the review of the AMERI Power Deal and the accusations of cronyism levelled against the Finance Minister over the issuance of a bond.

Probes into some of these cases have been seen to be unsatisfactory by some stakeholders.

He said the wanton corruption under the current New Patriotic Party (NPP) administration has made him lose hope in Akufo-Addo.
