Despite the widely reported uneasiness between New Patriotic Party (NPP) flagbearer, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo and former President John Agyekum Kufuor, the former holds the latter in very high regards and even thinks of him as the most successful Ghanaian president in the Fourth Republic.

Speaking at a public lecture on Ghana's economy by his running mate, Dr Mahamudu Bawumia at the National Theatre on Thursday, Akufo-Addo said "I thank the outstanding statesman, John Agyekum Kufuor, under who I served as a minister. There is no doubt that he is the most outstanding president of the fourth Republic" 

"Despite the passage of time, Kufuor is committed to the welfare of the Ghanaian", he added.

Former President Kufuor chaired the lecture which was under the theme, “The State of the Ghanaian Economy – A Foundation of Concrete or Straw".
