Nana Akufo-Addo who comes off as the far more nimble and politically astute, even if he has also on occasion been accused of being a bit too forthright for the comfort of those who seem to prefer practiced (or theatrical) humility over competence and vigilance in Ghanaian politics. (Feature Article of Tuesday, 13 July 2010, Columnist: Okoampa-Ahoofe, Kwame, Alhaji Bature Is Only Being Facetious)

In the aftermath of the defeat of the NPP flag bearer by the NDC candidate, Professor Atta-Mills,  Gabby Ochere-Darko tried to put some spin on it:

"The political opponents of the Danquah-Dombo-Busiasts have always been better at saying, “Ghanaians don’t need a president who is arrogant and looks down on them. They need a president who stands up for them. One who feels their pain.” These words were successfully used against a man who for more than 30 years (more than any of his rivals in the 2008 contest) dedicated his time, money, energy and intellect to fighting for the cause of the masses – Nana Akufo-Addo, an Akyem aristocrat."
