President Nana Akufo-Addo

Former Deputy General Secretary of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) Koku Anyidoho has described President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo’s last State of the Nation Address (SONA) in the most charitable terms.

Mr Anyidoho has described the speech as “commendable” for certain specific features.

Mr Anyidoho who was himself a presidential speechwriter for late President Atta-Mills said he used to keep his speeches “crisp and straight-to-the-point”.

He said he saw all the above elements in the SONA as delivered by the President at Parliament.

He wrote: The brevity of President Akufo-Addo’s SONA speech yesterday, is commendable. No need for a long winding speech. As the speech writer of President Atta-Mills, I used keep his speeches crisp and straight-to-the-point. Brevity is a strong mark of a focused person.
