The Communications director at the Presidency Eugene Arhin has apologized over the parts of the inaugural speech delivered by the President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo during his swearing-in on December 7, 2017, which was plagiarized.

Akufo-Addo made an embarrassing mistake yesterday after he plagiarized a speech by the former US President George Bush in January 2001, when he assumed office which read: “I ask you to be citizens: Citizens, not spectators; citizens, not subjects; responsible citizens building communities of service and a nation of character”.

While giving his own speech yesterday, he said: “I ask you to be citizens: citizens, not spectators; citizens, not subjects; responsible citizens building your communities and our nation’


He also plagiarized Bill Clinton’s inaugural speech to the chagrin of all. Mr. Arhin described this as an oversight saying it was not deliberate.


‘APOLOGY- Plagiarism Eugene Arhin, Communication Director at Golden Jubilee House writes.



‘My attention has been drawn to references being made to a statement in the speech delivered by the President of the Republic, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, at his swearing in on Saturday, January 7, 2017, which was not duly acknowledged.


‘I unreservedly apologize for the non-acknowledgement of this quote to the original author. It was a complete oversight, and never deliberate.



‘It is insightful to note that in the same speech were quotes from J.B Danquah, Dr. K.A. Busia, Dr. Kwame Nkrumah and the Bible which were all duly attributed and acknowledged,’ he wrote on his Facebook page.
