The president of Ghana Nana Addo Dankwa Akuffo Addo has claimed the country owes $120 million to his dad.
According to the Commander In-chief of the Ghana Armed Forces, Ghana is yet to refund the money to his family after past presidents refused to pay for the money loaned to the colonial government headed by Sir Gerald Creasy.
“At this point, I would like to state on record that our great nation is failing to progress because it owes some individuals millions of dollars and that has become a curse on Ghanaians.
And until we pay those people we will remain a sh!t hole country just like the US President Donald J. Trump described us.
As you all know my father Mr. Edward Akufo-Addo loaned us $120 million during the World War II, I have asked Ofori Atta to start paying the money else I will send him to Anota,” said the President in his address at the 62 Independence Day anniversary parade in the Northern Regional capital, Tamale on Wednesday.
Explaining why the Sir Gerald Creasy led administration borrowed from his dad who became Ghana’s ceremonial president in 1960, he stated emphatically
“His money was used to buy, gari, nkatae, panin di panin [water], the military used for soaking while at the World War II.
His money was also used to pay for prostitutes whenever the officers sleeps with them.
Not forgetting the alewa red and white our security personnel enjoyed,” he said.
The first gentleman of the land disclosed that he forgot about it but his dad ghost remembered him.
“I nearly forgot about it but thank God for my dad’s ghost he visited me last night and advised I used the money to relocate to China and put Ghana on auction and I promise to do just that” the president disclosed.
