He said many Ghanaians had faith in Nana Akufo-Addo till he became President of the country.

In his view, it would have served Mr Akufo-Addo better if he had remained an opposition leader rather than becoming the head of state.

Speaking in an interview on 3FM while commenting on the State of the Nation address delivered by the president on Tuesday, February 27.

He expressed disappointment in the address.


“It is such a tragedy that his excellency Nana Akufo Addo and Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia became leaders in this country”, the former broadcaster said.

Asked what advice he would give to the president if he met him, Suhuyini said: “It is too late for him to take any advice, I think it would have been better if he had stayed the opposition leader, his story in history, I am sure would have been kind and fair but as president he has destroyed every iota of confidence that people had in him.”
