- A Ugandan student studying at Harvard University has showered praises on President Akufo-Addo
- According to Innocent Taylor, he wished Uganda can replace their President Yoweri Museveni with Nana Addo due to his performance
A Ugandan student of Harvard University, Seguya Hillary Innocent Taylor, has said that citizens of his country are tired of their dictatorial leader, President Yoweri Museveni, and would like to exchange him for Ghana’s President, Nana Akufo-Addo.
He made the statement during a Q&A session at an event held at the Harvard Kennedy School of Government in, Boston, USA.
According to him, Nana Addo’s Pan-African speeches are inspiring and in line with the ideals of Dr. Kwame Nkrumah and Nelson Mandela.
He said he and other citizens of Uganda are tired of President Yoweri Museveni, who has been in power for 33 years.
Mr. Taylor added that the East African country would like to have Nana Addo in place of their current president.
“Thank you so much His Excellency Nana for that wonderful pan-African speech. I’m very sure beyond doubt that our great ancestors Kwame Nkrumah, Nelson Mandela Madiba, … are very positive about what you’ve talked about,” he said.
“My name is Seguya Hillary Innocent Taylor. I am a Ugandan and I’m doing my master’s in international relations here at Harvard. I wish we could exchange you for our Ugandan president, Dictator Yoweri Kaguta Museveni, who has been in power for 33 years and we are telling him enough is enough.”
President Akufo-Addo had delivered a speech at the university on the theme: ‘Empowering the Youth, Africa’s Golden Future’.
He appealed to African leaders to invest more in the youth using all the resources at their disposal.

He said Africa as a continent is blessed with enormous wealth and urged leaders to use them to develop their respective countries.
“I place great hope in their capacity to shape the future of Africa and make Africa the lion that it was meant to be.
“No one needs to tell us that mass unemployment in Africa, especially among her youth, is a ticking time bomb. The so-called Arab Spring showed clearly that the lack of employment opportunities can undermine social cohesion and political stability. With between 10 and 12 million youths joining the labour market every year, Africa has to pay maximum attention to job creation,” President Akufo-Addo added.
