I rejected ambassadorial role from Akufo Addo – Kwesi Pratt

The Managing Editor of the Insight newspaper, Kwesi Pratt Jnr, has revealed that President Akufo Addo once offered him a job but he refused on a matter of principle.

President Kufuor gave me a job but I refused. I was one of the first two people he offered appointments to after the (2000) election, but I told him the two of us cannot work together because of where we stand (ideologically). We would always fight.

You can ask Nana Akufo-Addo” he told Peace fm listeners.

According to Kwesi Pratt Jnr, President Kufuor, after failing to convince him to accept the ambassador to Cuba job, called Nana Akufo-Addo, “who was very close to me,” to try and reason with him.

“Nana Akufo-Addo invited me to his Adabraka office and I also told him the same thing, that I couldn’t work with President Kufuor because we would always fight because we see things differently,” he revealed.
