Efia Odo lashes out at Napo for comparing Akufo-Addo to Kwame Nkrumah [Video]

Ghanaian socialite Efia Odo has criticised New Patriotic Party (NPP) Vice-presidential candidate Matthew Opoku Prempeh following comments he made during his unveiling.

During his unveiling on July 8, 2024, in Kumasi, Mathew Opoku Prempeh, known as NAPO, asserted that Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo’s achievements surpass those of all previous administrations in Ghana’s history, including Kwame Nkrumah’s.

He stated that Nkrumah’s presidency was not exceptional, claiming, since Ghana’s inception in 1957, no president has contributed more to the country’s development and protection than Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.

“It has never happened in the history of Ghana. If President Akufo-Addo retires, I can hit my chest and state that since the nation’s inception in 1957, there has not been a president who has helped the state more than Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.

“I am saying that from 1957 to now, whether you pick ‘your’ Kwame Nkrumah… there is nobody who has led Ghana and protected the country or developed Ghana more than Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo,” he stated.

His comments were not well-received by a cross-section of Ghanaians, including Efia Odo, who expressed her views on social media.

She pondered the state of the nation had Nkrumah not achieved independence for the Gold Coast, or had he not initiated key infrastructure projects.

“Imagine if Kwame Nkrumah had never led the Gold Coast to independence. Imagine if he had never constructed the motorway, built the Akosombo Dam, and Tema Harbor. What if he had never established the University of Science and Technology? Where would we have been as a people and a nation?” she questioned.

Dr. Matthew Opoku Prempeh, popularly known as NAPO, was recently nominated by Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, the flagbearer of the ruling NPP, as his running mate, a choice which received the unanimous endorsement of the party’s National Executive Council.

Speaking at the unveiling event in Kumasi, President Nana Akufo-Addo expressed confidence in the Bawumia-NAPO ticket, while the party’s flagbearer justified his choice of the current Manhyia South Member of Parliament and Minister for Energy as his running mate.

Various speakers, including the party’s national and regional officers and former flagbearer contenders, spoke at the event.

They also expressed confidence in the party’s ability to win the upcoming election, especially against the main opposition, the National Democratic Congress.
