Popular Ghanaian rapper, Kwame A-Plus, has defended President Akufo Addo's decision to use excerpts taken from the 28th and 42nd US American Presidents, Woodrow Wilson and Bill Clinton's respective inauguration speeches.
Soon after President Akufo Addo's inauguration speech was through, rumor that the President's inauguration speech contained un-credited excerpts from two previous American presidential inauguration speeches.
Woodrow Wilson, who served as the 28th President of the United States, in his inauguration, "We are bound by ideals that teach us what it means to be citizens. Every child must be taught these ideals. Every citizen must uphold them…. I ask you to be citizens. Citizens, not spectators. Citizens, not subjects. Responsible citizens building communities of service and a nation of character.”

A quote that was also used by President George W. Bush in his inauguration on January 20th, 2001.
While President Akufo Addo's, "Though our challenges are fearsome, so are our strengths. Ghanaians have ever been a restless, questing, hopeful people. And we must bring to our task today the vision and will of those who came before us," line is also very similar to part of Bill Clinton's speech.
