Apart from being the current serving President of the Republic of Ghana as well as the current African Union Champion for Gender and Development. Nana Akuffo-Addo has always been a political activist for the best interest of the people of Ghana, even before he became President.
He was also a trained lawyer and operates his Law firm with which he used to help the oppressed in the Ghanian society. With his law background and activism, he has been able to influence major positive changes through demonstrations against practices that did not suit the Ghanian people.
Nana Akuffo-Addo branded the year 2019 as the Year of Return and this in turn brought people in the diaspora especially black Americans with celebrities like Steve Harvey and Senator Nancy Pelosi to come to Ghana to connect to their roots. This inturn also increased the Ghanian yearly revenue and a 100% hotel occupancy.
Below are selected messages and quotes that I like the best:
“We know what to do to bring back our economy back to life. What we do not know how to do is to bring people back to life” – His Excellency Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.
“Majority of people who will be affected by decisions of that nature are the working people of our country. The ordinary people of Ghana. They are the ones who will be affected and it is important for us to take into account the circumstances and conditions. When we lock down Accra, what are the consequences?”
“A responsible government is required to look at all the implications before decisions are made. And that is the exercise we are currently engaged in and I am hoping that much sooner than later we will come to an agreement on what those measures are and the Ghanaian people will be informed.” -His Excellency Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo before he announced Accra and other parts of Ghana will be on lockdown during the covid-19 pandemic.
Basically, Nana Addo Dankwa Akuffo-Addo is a great man who have the masses at heart and is bent on delivering efficient services to the best interest of the Ghanian people.
