‘Nana could be a great statesman’, lecturer says

Senior Lecturer at the Political Science Department of the University of Ghana Dr Kumi Ansah Koi has suggested that Ghana must tap into the experience of defeated 2012 New Patriotic Party (NPP) presidential candidate, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, if he refuses to contest for presidency in the future.

“Nana Addo has proven to be an experienced politician and a luminary in law and it is important the country taps from his experience if he does not pursue his presidential dreams,” Dr Koi said on TV 3 while discussing the aftermath of the 2012 General Elections.

Dr. Koi said Nana Addo’s experience in law and politics should be made good use of by any government.

While admitting it will be devastating for Nana Addo if his party does not give him the mandate to contest the 2016 Presidential Elections, the Political Science lecturer pointed out that Nana’s vast experience can be of good use to the state.

Dr. Koi also commended President John Mahama on his speech immediately after being declared the winner of the country.

He said the president’s remark that the victory is not for an individual but for Ghana is a sign that he, the president, is committed to uniting the country.
