Justin Frimpong Kodua, who beat John Boadu to become the New Patriotic Party’s General Secretary, has disclosed that Nana Akufo-Addo supported him at law school.
Known popularly as JFK, the politician who has been working behind the scenes said he entered the law school following advice from the president, then an opposition leader, in 2009.
“Candidate Akufo-Addo in 2009 advised me to go to the law school after I told him I wanted to do politics as a full-time job. He paid my first fees when I got admitted,” he said on a current affairs programme on Joy News on Wednesday, July 20, 2022.
He said the advice to go to law school was the best because it changed his life positively.

The lawyer pulled a surprise when he triumphed as General Secretary during the party’s national executives election held this month. He beat incumbent John Boadu with over 300 votes.
The Youth Employment Agency (YEA) CEO polled 2,837 votes against John Boadu’s 2,524.
JFK was once the NPP’s Ashanti Region Deputy Youth Organiser and once chaired the NPP Youth Legal Committee.
His specialisation in law is corporate and commercial litigation and arbitration. He is particularly interested in land disputes and asset management.
He obtained an LLB from the University of Ghana after graduating from the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST).
NPP's 'Break The 8' Mantra Is About Rigging 2024 Election
YEN.com.gh has reported in a separate story that Professor Raymond Atuguba, Dean of the University of Ghana School of Law, has said the popular 'Break The 8' mantra of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) is a grand plan to rig the 2024 general elections.
Delivering a lecture on the theme "Ghana at Crossroads" at the University for Development Studies (UDS) in Tamale in the Northern Region, he said the popular slogan of the governing party was a sinister plan to hold on to power at all cost.
The law professor said the NPP intends to hold on to power by setting up parallel security forces, some forcefully integrated into some regular forces, and use them for all violence.
"…culminating, some have argued, in their deployment for Election 2024, against the backdrop of real or orchestrated evidence of terrorism and violent extremism, for the purpose of restricting freedoms, terrorising the opposition and robbing the election," he said.
