Scores of supporters of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) have started a social media campaign in solidarity with its flagbearer, Nana Akufo-Addo after he was mocked by some supporters of the governing National Democratic Congress (NDC) for drinking a local fruit drink, Kalyppo, while on a campaign tour.
Some NDC supporters took on the flagbearer earlier this week after a photo of him sipping the drink went viral on social media.
The supporters said, they wondered why the NPP flagbearer would sip an inexpensive fruit juice predominantly enjoyed by school pupils.
But some supporters of the NPP chastised the NDC supporters for what they described as “irrelevant” comments.
They argued that Nana Addo’s act was not out of place and that it demonstrated his commitment to the use of Made-in-Ghana products to promote the local economy.
The supporters shared selfies of themselves sipping Kalyppo and nominated friends to do same as a means of turning the development into a positive drive for the consumption of local products.
