Ghanaian-American actress, television personality, Anderea Owusu, professionally known as Efia Odo has taken a swipe at the running mate of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) Dr. Matthew Opoku Prempeh widely known as Napo over claims that no president of Ghana since Independence has developed Ghana than President Akufo-Addo even Kwame Nkrumah, the first president of Ghana who led the Gold Coast to independence.

According to the socialite, both the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) and the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) can not compare their legacies to the late Kwame Nkrumah.

She questioned where would Ghanaians have been as a people and a nation if Kwame Nkrumah never led the Gold Coast to independence and constructed the motorway or built the Akosombo Dam and tema harbor. Adding that what if he never established the University of Science and Technology.

“Imagine if Kwame Nkrumah never led the Gold Coast to independence. Imagine if he never constructed the motorway or built the Akosombo Dam and tema harbor. What if he never established the University of Science and Technology. Where would we have been as a people and a nation?” Efia Odo quizzed.

Speaking at his outdooring ceremony as the NPP running mate in Jubilee Park, Kumasi on Tuesday, July 9, 2024, Napo stated that “if President Akufo Addo retires, I can beat my chest and say that no president has developed Ghana than President Nana Akufo-Addo. Whether your Kwame Nkruma ooo, or whosoever, nobody has protected Ghana and developed the country more than Nana Akufo-Addo.”

This statement did not go well with many Ghanaians.

Reacting to this, Efia Odo on her social media haddle lamented people talk irresponsibly about their predecessors because of money and power.

She asked what the NPP can boost under the leadership of President Akufo-Addo.

“People will get a little money and power and start talking irresponsibly about their predecessors. What monumental thing has the president done ? Building a cathedral with tax payers money ? Nothing NPP or NDC has done can be compared to what KWAME NKRUMAH has done for Ghanaians.” The actress lamented.
