President on the spot for plagiarising speech

Nana Akufo-Addo inauguration

Accra, Ghana – President Nana Akufo-Addo of Ghana has found himself in an embarrassing position after plagiarising the speeches of former US Presidents.
The President is accused of plagiarising parts of speeches delivered by presidents Bill Clinton and George Bush during his inauguration Saturday.
Nana used part of a speech by Clinton that read: “Though our challenges are fearsome, so are our strengths. Americans have ever been a restless, questing, hopeful people. And we must bring to our task today the vision and will of those who came before us,” replacing Americans with Ghanaians.
He added: “I ask you to be citizens, citizens not spectators; citizens not subjects; responsible citizens building communities of service and a nation of character,” which first appeared in a speech by Bush.
The 72-year-old President is not the first leader to be accused of plagiarism.
President Muhammadu Buhari of Nigeria, and the US President-elect’s wife, Melania Trump have also found themselves in a similar situation in the past.
