President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has become the toast of some Nigerians on social media.
This follows a video of him shared by Nigerian comedian Basketmouth on his Instagram page.
The video is of a speech Akufo-Addo delivered during his state visit to Switzerland about one year ago.
In his speech, Akufo-Addo announced that Ghana was going to end the process of selling raw materials to trade partners for onward value addition.
"Ghana is currently Switzerland’s largest trading partner in sub-Saharan Africa, largely from the export of gold and cocoa to Switzerland and the import of chemical and pharmaceutical products…
"However, as I have stated on many occasions, Ghana no longer wants to be dependent on the production and export of raw materials, including cocoa beans. We intend to process more and more of our cocoa in our country with the aim of producing more chocolate ourselves," she said.
Akufo-Addo's delivery and the substance of his speech got Baskemouth impressed to the point of sharing the video.
Posting the video, Basketmouth asked his fans to watch the video and tell him how they feel about it.
Basketmouth's caption to the video stirred loads of reactions from his followers. Many of them praised Akufo-Addo while blasting their president, Muhammad Buhari.

effbankz said Nigeria needed a similar stance for their oil:
"We need this with our oil first and then open the domestic economy up to foster a multilateral product based growth."
isaacgeralds broke everything down in his perspective:
"First of all our president can’t speak English that they’ll understand secondly the people are not priority for our government, thirdly if it doesn’t directly make them rich or empowers the key players in their circle it’s of no interest to them!!!"
ramadan_music was impressed with Akufo-Addo's delivery:
"His delivery is so clean and clear ❤."
t_craftz was saddened by the difference he saw between the two presidents:
"I feel very sad actually. Ghana isn’t that far from us here, but we re far from having sense like them courtesy our leaders. Smh."
"I'm happy Ghanaians have a great president, unlike us wey our president want to borrow money from a dormant account."
"Ewooo...see president wey go school big to all Ghanaians for this bold step."

"Our president no fit read this thing."
