Upper Regional Chairman of NPP, S.B Kangberee
The Upper West Regional Chairman of The New Patriotic Party, Saanbaye Basilde Sitalde Kangberee has been spotted in a video referring to President Akufo-Addo as a Benevolent dictator, in the statement, he called the audience to support the president in getting an overwhelming margin so as to be able to push all proposals through Parliament successfully.
“I am a believer in benevolent dictatorship, and in this modern era, the way we can get that is to first of all have a benevolent person as a thug which fortunately we have in president Akufo-Addo, the only thing left now is for us to give him the weapon of dictatorship, he has the heart, he has the will to help us and that weapon is to get an overwhelming majority in Parliament so that what ever policy he brings on board, whether you like it or not, it will go through, so we’re not looking for a slim margin, we are looking for an overwhelming margin so we’re rest assured that what ever policy he brings will sail through Parliament and make it easier for him to help us and bring more policies”
The Chairman was recorded in a secret video putting up these statements in a close door meeting.
Wikipedia’s Definition of ‘Benevolent Dictator’:
Hear it out for yourselves. This is the Upper West Regional chairman of the NPP speaking.
According to wikipedia: “A benevolent dictatorship is a government in which an authoritarian leader exercises absolute political power over the state but is perceived to do so with regard for benefit of the population as a whole, standing in contrast to the decidedly malevolent stereotype of a dictator who focuses on their and their supporters’ self-interests.”
