A leading member of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Richard Amoako Baah has ranked President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo as the worst president under the Fourth Republic in terms of defending and consolidating democracy.

Amoako Baah, a political scientist, is a serial critic of the Akufo-Addo-led government and has often called out the president over his lack of action on critical national issues.

He said in terms of delivering on democracy: “Akufo-Addo’s (administration) is worse, very bad… that must is for sure.”

Asked for specifics of what has gone wrong since 2017, he responded: “(it has been) seven years of strictly vices, people steal without accountability, they offend the laws and go free, no one arrested for galamsey or breaching Auditor-General’s reports.”

In an interview on Onua FM monitored by He pointed to the case of former Auditor-General, Daniel Domelevo, to stress how “proceed on leave” orders have been issued to people who are not in the president’s good books or against his allies.

“Akufo-Addo does what he wants because he is not accountable and there are no consequences,” he added.

Jerry John Rawlings (1993 – 2001), John Agyekum Kufuor (2001 – 2009), John Atta Mills (2009 – 2012) and John Dramani Mahama (2012 – 2016) are the presidents Ghana has had under the Fourth Republic.

Akufo-Addo is the fifth president and only the third to secure a second term aside from Rawlings and Kufuor.
