Wherever Kwadwo Addeah Prempeh comes, he proudly introduces himself as the President of the Ghana Readers Club. But what kind of entity is this, what role does it play in public life in Ghana, and is Addeah Prempeh really the acting President as he claims?
When his Dutch host summoned Addeah to pay his outstanding bill, Addeah showed him a hardcopy of this article in Ghanaian newspaper Daily Graphic, dated August 29, 2017. His host asked: “Why do you show me this article; what is your message? That you don’t have to pay your bill because you’re the President of the Ghana Readers Club and therefore are entitled to have things your way?”
The anecdote illustrates not just Addeah’s strong sense of entitlement, but also how important the Ghana Readers Club is for his alleged reputation.
