Akufo-Addo's inaugural speech a plagiarism of form


I understand Woodrow Wilson used those words in the 19th century, then Bill Clinton used same in his inaugural speech. The same was used by George Bush Jnr in 2001. All without making reference to the 'original' author. That to me emphasises the importance of those words. While not 'condoning' plagiarism, I guess what matters is whether or not those words are applicable in contemporary Ghanaian politics, and can consequently make a significant change to enhance progress. These NDC guys should stop these pettiness and concentrate on the 'prison terms' awaiting them.
