A senior lecturer at the University of Ghana, Prof Ransford Gyampo has described President Nana Addo Danquah Akuffo-Addo as a “master politician” for his success at keeping Former President Jerry John Rawlings mute despite all the ills of government.
The senior lecturer who doubles as the Director of the Centre for European Studies of the University of Ghana said it is a fact that since the Akuffo-Addo won power in 2016, Rawlings hasn’t uttered a word against his government like he usually does for previous successive governments. Prof Gyampo described the situation as a political masterclass disposition by the President.

Prof Gyampo while speaking on Okay FM said, “as a master politician if you are able to identify your opponent and find ways and means of keeping your opponent at bay, they will find it difficult to oppose you in public; and will censure you in secret. It is possible that Nana Akufo-Addo is doing that and that is why Rawlings is almost literally in bed with him.”
“If I compare his relationship with the current Akufo-Addo government to the J.A Kufour’s era where he used to heavily criticised the government, there is a vast difference because he does not speak against Akufo-Addo government and it could well be that President Akufo-Addo is being a master politician . . . a master politician is one who is able to bring his political opponents closer to him,” he continued.
“when you are given power, you have the right to ignore the opposition and you have the right to also work with the opposition such that they would not worry you. One of the things that J.A Kuffour used to do in his era is that even people within his party that he knew were his key competitors, he appointed them because he knew that if he did not do that they would worry him. It is just that he could not do that with Rawlings,” he added.
