Nana Addo Has Never Been A Cadet Corps, Yet People Compare Him To Buhari








An attempt by some observers to liken the destiny of Nana Akufo Addo to that of Nigeria’s president elect, Gen. Mahammadu Buhari, has been shot down by a deputy Communications Director for the ruling National Democratic Congress.

Kweku Boahen claims the New Patriotic Party’s attempt to relate the two personalities makes no logical meaning considering their dissimilar political history.

He advised the NPP not to use only the age factor to compare Nana Akufo Addo and Gen. Buhari; but should delve deeper and look at achievements as well.

From his view if the NPP had been diligent enough and conducted their research, they would have realized that the current Nigerian president had successfully organized a military coup d’├ętat a couple of years ago before legitimately returning to power.

The story is not the same with Nana Akufo Addo who he claims has never been a cadet corps since his days in primary school.   

After Gen. Buhari’s win over Goodluck Jonathan in the just ended Nigeria elections, some conclusions have been drawn by some members of the opposition NPP.

Some party members have predicted that as the wind of change for older leaders continues to blow over West Africa with Cote D'ivoire and Nigeria taking the lead, Ghanaians would follow suit during the 2016 polls.

If Nana Addo had come from a military background just like Gen. Buhari, Kweku  Boahen asserts, he would at least believed the message the NPP is desperately selling to electorates in the aftermath of Nigeria’s elections.

Nana Akufo Addo must undergo a military training before we would all say that the two (Nana Addo and Buhari) are all soldiers and have led opposition parties. Then it will also make sense if we say that Nigerians have voted Buhari to power so Ghanaians must also vote for Nana Akufo Addo”, he said on Asempa FM.
