Prez Akufo-Addo 'Degrading' Presidency By Carrying His 'Special' Chair Everywhere’ He Goes . . .

A member of the Communication team of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Alhaji Halidu Haruna has described as degrading President Akufo-Addo's act of carrying his chair around.

Nana Addo started trending with his chair when he had a one-on-one interview on Wontumi TV in Kumasi.

He recently used this chair which some have described as 'special' when he visited the family of the late Former Presiding Bishop of Methodist Church of Ghana, Most Rev. Dr Samuel Asante Antwi.

The former NDC Presidential candidate for the Ablekuma Central Constituency speaking in a discussion on Neat FM's 'Me Man Nti' programme recalled when the President was campaigning for votes in 2016 'walking around Kwame Nkrumah Circle and pretending to relate to the ordinary person'.

"I have noticed that even if he is going to someone's house he carries his own chair; why? Even when he was going to visit the family of Rev Asante Antwi, I realised he went with his own chair. why couldn't he use the chairs in the house?

"In 2016 was he not the same person walking through Circle portraying to be an ordinary person; now he is the President so he carries his own chair. It's kind of degrading . . . if I were him to show to the ordinary person that I have not changed, I will use the chairs everybody is using," he indicated adding; "you can't pretend for long; your real character will be known once you get power . . . "

However, Executive Director for Danquah Institute (DI), a public policy analysis and research centre, Mr Richard Ahiagbah has a different opinion.

Speaking on the same platform, he said there are more important issues to dwell on than the President's chair.

"What's wrong with that; moreover this is not important because it's not a bread and butter issue; there are better things to talk about," he replied.
