A former Ashanti Regional Chairman of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) has scored the performance of the Akufo-Addo administration higher than that of Ghana’s first President, Dr. Kwame Nkrumah

Robert Yaw Amankwah says the current NPP government has comparatively done better than the CPP administration at the break of independence.

Whilst addressing a crowd of NDC supporters in Ashaiman, last week, NDC Presidential Candidate and former President John Mahama described the Akufo-Addo administration as ‘rubbish’, compared to that of Kwame Nkrumah.

Yaw Amankwah, however, maintains that Nana Akufo-Addo is ahead of Nkrumah.

“I am telling you that when it comes to politics, Nana Addo is much much better than Kwame Nkrumah. If he should get the same years Kwame Nkrumah got, he’ll do way better than Nkrumah,” he said on Nhyira Fm’s Kuro Yi Mu Nsem.

Mr. Amankwah argued that Kwame Nkrumah had governance easy, as he had lots of money released to him during the transfer of power from the British.

“Do you know the amount of money Kwame Nkrumah was handed alongside power? Kwame Nkrumah had a lot of money to run the country unlike that of Kuffour and Akufo-Addo,” he added.

The former NPP Chair sid Dr. Kwame Nkrumah had things easy in his administration and cannot be compared to Nana Akufo-Addo.

“One unprecedented achievement by the Nana Addo administration is Free SHS; it has never happened in the history of this country,” he noted.
