    The New Patriotic Party (NPP) running mate and Member of Parliament for Manhyia South, Dr. Matthew Opoku Prempeh (Napo), has faced intense scrutiny and backlash following his controversial statement about Dr. Kwame Nkrumah’s achievements.

    During his acceptance speech at his unveiling rally in Kumasi, Napo compared his achievements to those of Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, claiming that under the latter’s administration, no one has experienced hunger, and the economy is thriving.

    However, Dr. Randy Abbey, host of Good Morning Ghana on Metro TV, vehemently disagreed with Napo’s claims, labeling them as “complete lies.”

    Dr. Abbey urged Napo to visit the Ghana Statistical Service to access accurate data, revealing that over 850,000 Ghanaians go to bed with empty stomachs, according to the multidimensional poverty index.

    He also cited the 2023 Global Hunger Index, which ranks Ghana 62nd out of 125 countries with a moderate hunger level (score of 13.7), and the 2024 Food Insecurity report, which indicates that 2 million people are food insecure, with 657,000 children under 5 chronically malnourished.
