Although President Mahama has pledged not to use the perceived ailing health of New Patriotic Party (NPP) presidential aspirant, Nana Addo Dankwah Akufo-Addo, other party members aren’t so constrained.
Vice Chairman of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Samuel Ofosu Ampofo has called on Ghanaians to be guarded lest they later regret giving the state to an infirm man in body and mind.
“Nana Akufo Addo has become very desperate; he’s 72 years… by Ghana’s laws when you’re sixty years you go on pension because your strength reduces. Nana is 72 years, still, he wants to contest for the presidency. Now, if you ask of his whereabouts…he campaigns for a week, then he goes abroad for two weeks. Ghanaians want a President who has the physical and mental capacity to govern the nation. Governance is a very strenuous exercise, and you need a very strong personality who has enough strength to do the work. We don’t want to vote for a President who stays in Ghana for one week and spend the next two weeks in London. Why, is he building an annex of the Flagstaff House in London?” Ofosu Ampofo asked.
Mr. Ofosu Ampofo made the claims at Asamankese in Upper West Akyem District of the Eastern Region while addressing NDC sympathisers at the campaign launch of the party’s Parliamentary Candidate.
The Africa Watch Magazine also contends Nana Akufo-Addo has cancer but has been untruthful about his condition.
John Dramani Mahama is 58 years old as against Nana Akufo-Addo’s 72.
