Professor Ransford Gyampo of the University of Ghana has extolled President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo for his tolerance of views expressed by independent-minded critics against his policies.
According to him, if all Ghanaians can emulate Mr Akufo-Addo’s tolerance, Ghana would work.
Following a meeting between President Akufo-Addo and some civil society activists and critics, Prof Gyampo wrote on his Facebook on Wednesday, 24 October 2018 that: “We offer critique without malice and purposely to shape governance and I am happy the president of the Republic appreciates this.
“I was humbled by the invitation to join the president alongside other think tank heads to discuss pertinent issues affecting Ghana.
“We had frank discussions and the president was tolerant of the polite punches and critiques that usually would characterise such meetings with independent minds.
“If all leaders would listen to independent voices of reason beyond what party sycophants say, Ghana would work. Mr President, I commend you for this initiative.”
