Asenso-Boakye, a prominent figure within the NPP, expressed his views during a recent interview, emphasizing that President Akufo-Addo’s leadership style and accomplishments set him apart from his predecessor. The minister credited Akufo-Addo’s administration with transformative policies and initiatives that have significantly impacted the nation.
Highlighting specific achievements, Asenso-Boakye commended President Akufo-Addo for his role in the successful implementation of flagship programs such as Free Senior High School (SHS), Planting for Food and Jobs, and One District, One Factory. The MP argued that these initiatives have not only uplifted the lives of Ghanaians but have also positioned Akufo-Addo as a trailblazer within the NPP’s presidential history.
In contrast to the tenure of former President Kuffour, Asenso-Boakye suggested that Akufo-Addo’s presidency exhibited a more comprehensive and impactful approach to national development. He praised the incumbent president’s commitment to infrastructure development, job creation, and economic growth.
The Bantama MP’s endorsement sparked discussions within political circles, with supporters of both leaders expressing their opinions on social media platforms.
