My Favourite Personality-A poem by Daniel Asamoah Acquah (assisted)

My favourite personality
Is the first gentleman of Ghana my country;
His Excellency
Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.
A man noted for his decency
Not to even talk of his bravado;
Akyem Kyebi is marked as his origin
Situated near the center of the Eastern Region.

In 2018, he turned 74 years old;
As President over the land of gold.
Oh, Heavenly Father, grant him grace to be bold
So that by Your will this office he will hold
And my motherland prosper from her gold.

He won the elections in December Twenty-Sixteen
And came into office January Twenty-Seventeen
He made possible the Free SHS
Without which students at home would have been in excess;
In health he restored the allowance for trainees
Not forgetting that of my teacher trainees.

He is ready to fight corruption
A canker eating up my dear nation;
So he appointed the Special Prosecutor
To go after anyone seen to be a nation looter.

I like him because of his determination
To rid Ghana of corruption;
And to turn it into a prosperous nation
As God has destined from the dawn of creation.
