Reminiscent of the infamous Muhammadu Buhari’s speech stealing scandal, Ghana’s newly sworn in President, Dr Nana Akufo-Addo has been involved in a plagiarism scandal.
Portions of his inaugural speech at the Independence Square, Ghana on Saturday, January 7th, 2017, were lifted from inaugural speech delivered by former US presidents George Bush and Bill Clinton .
“I ask you to be citizens: citizens, not spectators; citizens, not subjects; responsible citizens building your communities and our nation. Let us work until the work is done,” was lifted from George Bush’s Inaugural speech.
Nana Akuffo Addo not done with lifting George Bush’s speech went further to steal some lines from the inaugural speech of Former US President Bill Clinton.
