Member of Parliament (MP) for Damango, Samuel Abu Jinapor has commended President Nana Akufo-Addo’s recognition by Forbes magazine as African personality of the year 2021 and should be seen as an honor for the nation Ghana.

According to him every Ghanaian should take pride in the recognition as it puts Ghana on the global state map and further added that the recognition is to the people and government of the Republic of Ghana.

Again the hard work done which has attracted Forbes should be seen as work done collectively for the past five years which the president has led the country. “There has been men and women who had supported him to build this enviable record, a legacy past president of the Republic who have receive such an award”.

Contributing to a statement on the floor of the House, made by MP for Kwadaso, he noted that late former president Jerry John Rawlings got the hanger award and like President Kuffour when he got an award for his contribution to the development of Ghana, all of those need to be seen as national recognition.

President  Akufo-Addo’s vision for Ghana and the African continent and his attempt to change the structure of the Ghanaian economy from the Guggisberg economy to an economy which is self-sufficient, producing economy which is  industrialized economy; that has been his  position from his days as an opposition leader through his stewardship as president for the past five years.

“Mr. Speaker, President Nana Addo  has been on the front championing the reforms in the world economic order,  the world economic order which put Africa at the disadvantage and president Akufo-Addo has been the advocating  for the change so that,  “Africa can take its true place in the world economic arrangement”
