Ghanaian media personality, Afia Pokua aka Vim Lady, is asking if president Akufo-Addo would survive four more years should Ghanaians decide to vote for him again as president in the 2020 elections.
Speaking on her show ‘Egya so Egya so’ on Okay FM, Vim Lady said people who use the age of the president in their prediction for the 2020 elections, might be disappointed.
According to Vim lady, age does not matter, this is because a young and energetic Ebony for instance is no more whiles the 75-year-old Nana Addo is still alive.
“Nana Addo wants us to give him 4 more years, but the question is can he survive?…If you don’t know and you calculate that Nana Addo is old man, he won’t leave for 4 more years, he might die…Ebony is dead whiles Nana Addo is still alive. Nana Addo in 2016 whiles campaigning at Legon looked very sick but he has survived. People said Nana Addo was dying but…like joke like joke, the old man is still alive,” Vim Lady said.
The president last year debunked social media rumours that he was rushed to the 37th Military Hospital for emergency treatment after a critical ailment.
He said his presence at the health facility had nothing to do with those speculations, but that he had gone there to visit his brother-in-law who had been hospitalized pending a hip surgery.
“All I can say is that… those whose political fortunes depend on my ill health and degeneration, all I can say is that we are all in the hands of the Almighty…Amen,” he added.
