Senior statesman and author, Asamoah Yaw has rated President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo rather poorly insisting his administration which is in its dying embers will long be remembered as the worst in Ghana’s history.

Speaking to host Julius Caesar Anadem on the Ultimate Breakfast Show, the eighty-year-old argued that President Akufo Addo’s leadership has cast a slur on the league of black leaders across the world.

“I will score him a -100 because he has no idea of what the nation consists of. He will be remembered for years for being the worst leader of this nation. The worst black leader in the whole world.

“We shall remember him for long, at least fifty years, as we remember Kwame Nkrumah and Kufuor. Akufo Addo will be remembered as the worst black leader in the whole world,” he emphasized.

Buttressing his point, Asamoah Yaw made reference to allegations of corruption and mismanagement that he opined, has tainted the Nana Addo administration.

“There is no accountability; there is no discipline in the system; corruption is everywhere; mess up of our resources is going on every second.

Recounting the headline achievements of the Akufo Addo administration including the one district one factory, one constituency one ambulance, one village one dam etc.; he inquired whether the Nana Addo led government has done any impact assessment of the funds invested in the policies.

“Are the village people telling you they are benefitting from that? They are seeing suffering out of all of these,” he argues.

In his opinion, the President has served no aspiration beyond his personal interests.

“Akufo Addo has no foresight for the populace. He is always thinking of himself. Me Akuffo Addo; arrogance, pride… When I Akuffo Addo am coming chiefs must rise to greet,” he mimicked.

Asamoah Yaw challenged presidential aspirants to provide manifestos that detail how Ghana can be self-reliant.

He contended that Ghana has no excuse relying on foreign aid for its basic needs when the country has abundance of arable lands and minerals.

“The manifesto we need is something which will guarantee that we have these resources and I am coming to make sure we use our energies and brainwork to utilize our resources. First to feed us and export the excess so we can buy what we cannot produce here,” he recommended.

Asamoah Yaw further pledged his support for the total ban of every commodity that can be produced in the country.

He called for a decisive leadership that enforces the laws of the country regardless and employed high levels of critical thinking in solving the country’s age-long challenges.
