Queen Mother of Bechem, Nana Adwoapo Dwamena Serwaa II welcoming Nana Akufo-Addo to the funeral grounds with a hug
PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo’s huge popularity in Kumasi was once again showcased on Saturday.
The NPP guru was accorded a rousing welcome when he stormed the Heroes Park to mourn with the Apagya family following the death of three outstanding members.
The loud shouts of joy that greeted Nana Akufo-Addo and his entourage including his wife Rebecca nearly turned the venue upside down.
Interestingly, those who were vociferous in welcoming Nana Akufo-Addo to the funeral venue were women, who have voting rights.
They started with shouts of the NPP leader’s name immediately Nana Akufo-Addo’s delegation arrived.
The excited women, who were speaking Twi, then changed their chorus into ‘Nana Wo Krom’, to wit Nana is in town.
Nana Akufo-Addo, from the look on his face, seemed to be enjoying the massive support the crowd offered him.
The security personnel of the NPP leader did a yeoman’s job clearing the way for Nana Akufo-Addo to move.
This did not deter the women from continuing to show their strong support for the NPP presidential candidate.
These women were later seen using their mobile phones to snap pictures of Nana Akufo-Addo after he took his seat at the funeral grounds.
