NAPO justifies ‘Your Kwame Nkrumah’ comment: I only speak the truth – I’m not rude

The running mate of NPP flagbearer Dr Mahamudu Bawumia and MP for Manhyia South, Dr Matthew Opoku Prempeh, has justified his comments that no President since Independence surpasses the achievements of President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo not even your Kwame Nkrumah.

During his introduction in Kumasi on Tuesday, Opoku Prempeh popularly known as NAPO declared that President Akufo-Addo’s accomplishments surpass those of Dr Kwame Nkrumah.

During his visit to Tetrete Okuamoah Sekyim II, the Omanhene of Wasa Amenfi Traditional Area at Wassa Akropong in the Western North Region on Wednesday, NAPO justified his comments.
He also dismissed claims that he is arrogant arguing that he only speaks the truth.

NAPO indicated that politicians who speak the truth are always tagged as disrespectful while those who lie are praised.

“For us politicians, we do our politics every four years. Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, you have supported him to do what he can do in Ghana. Even when I said it they have taken it wrongly. I say ever since independence, from 1957, from Kwame Nkrumah till today, no government has worked harder than Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo”, he added.

Dr. Mathew Opoku Prempeh empathized that “the politics we do, when you speak the truth, they say you are disrespectful. When you lie then you are praised. I am your child I am your grandson. You did not raise me with lies.”
