Nii Lante Vanderpuye: If I were Akufo-Addo, I would apologize to Ghanaians


Edwin Nii Lante Vanderpuye, Member of Parliament for Odododiodoo, criticized President Akufo-Addo’s governance approach, suggesting that an apology to Ghanaians might be in order due to what he perceives as a failure to address the people’s needs adequately, leading to widespread suffering.

Vanderpuye’s comments were prompted by President Akufo-Addo’s call for Ghanaians to reject the National Democratic Congress (NDC) flagbearer in the upcoming December elections, arguing that such a decision would jeopardize the progress achieved under his leadership and pose a threat to the nation’s future.

During an interview with Umaru Sanda Amadu on Citi FM’s Eyewitness News, Vanderpuye expressed his belief that history would remember President Akufo-Addo’s tenure as one marked by disappointment, potentially labeling him as the worst president in the country’s history.

In Vanderpuye’s view, President Akufo-Addo should consider offering an apology to the millions of Ghanaians who voted for him and feel let down by his administration. He asserted, “Nana Addo will go into history as the worst president ever in the fourth republic of this country. Worst President ever because he is the most corrupt president in our history.”

Vanderpuye further accused President Akufo-Addo of presiding over the collapse of the economy, stating that Ghana’s current economic state is worse than at any other time in its history. He questioned the legacy the president aims to leave behind, implying that a correction would be necessary, potentially under the leadership of John Mahama.

The criticism from Vanderpuye reflects a broader sentiment of dissatisfaction with the current administration’s performance, particularly regarding its handling of economic challenges and alleged corruption.

President Akufo-Addo’s plea for continued support contrasts sharply with Vanderpuye’s call for reflection and accountability, highlighting the political divide and competing narratives ahead of the upcoming elections.

As the political discourse intensifies in the run-up to the elections, such exchanges underscore the importance of public accountability and the electorate’s role in shaping the country’s future trajectory.
