Show Ghanaians You’re A Man of Peace Before Leaving Power – Gyampo Advises Akufo-Addo



Prof Ransford Gyampo, a lecturer at the University of Ghana has urged President Akufo-Addo to make peace with persons he had issues with within the New Patriotic Party before leaving power.

In a post on social media, the outspoken lecturer questioned why the President dumped Mr Kwabena Agyapong who helped his reelection bid only to dump him after victory.

He advised Akufo-Addo “not to the not listen to the hawks and hardliners around him” because “they only hero-worship him for the sake of their own stomach.”

“Mr President, you actually invited Mr. Kwabena Agyapong to help your re-election only to abandon him after your victory? This doesn’t speak well of you sir. It makes you appear overly vindictive. Given the closeness of the last election, you must be intolerant of whatever divides your party. You must not listen to the hawks and hardliners around you. They do not seek your good. They only hero-worship you for the sake of their own stomach,” he wrote.

He added: “You must be magnanimous, particularly now that you are exiting. Reach out to the Sammy Crabbes, Afokos and of course the Kwabena Agyapongs. This would make you look good in the eyes of many Ghanaians as a man of conciliation. You must exit as a statesman. You must actively deal with all cracks before exiting. Don’t be seen to be too hard on your supposed internal political enemies even after your victory. It is unchristian and politically inconsequential. This is my Xmas message to you.”
