“I’m Not Disrespectful, I Only Speak the Truth” – NAPO Justifies Kwame Nkrumah Comment

Dr. Matthew Opoku Prempeh, the running mate of NPP flagbearer Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, has defended his recent remarks comparing the achievements of President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo to those of the late President Dr. Kwame Nkrumah.

During his introduction in Kumasi on Tuesday, Opoku Prempeh declared that President Akufo-Addo’s accomplishments surpass those of Dr. Kwame Nkrumah. While visiting Tetrete Okuamoah Sekyim II, the Omanhene of Wasa Amenfi Traditional Area at Wassa Akropong in the Western North Region on Wednesday, NAPO stood by his comments and dismissed claims of arrogance, asserting that he only speaks the truth.

“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,” NAPO stated.

He further explained that politicians who speak the truth are often labeled as disrespectful, whereas those who lie are praised. “But 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,” he said.

Dr. Opoku Prempeh’s remarks have stirred significant debate, but he maintains that his statements are based on his genuine assessment of the current administration’s efforts compared to past governments.

Meanwhile, the Convention People’s Party (CPP) has issued a 24-hour ultimatum to Dr .Opoku Prempeh to apologize and retract his comments.
