Some supporters of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), on Saturday, converged on the Sunyani Coronation Park for the party’s manifesto launch, but had various objects to showcase, including a coffin, embossed with the pictures of the NPP Flagbearer, Nana Akufo-Addo.
It is unclear what message the supporters were seeking to communicate, particularly when some persons in the ruling party, have attempted to use the health status of Nana Addo as a campaign tool. The party has also said they will retire Nana Addo this year, to kill his dreams of leading the country.
Although President Mahama has stated categorically that he will not campaign on anybody’s health status, some supporters of his party, have suggested that Nana Addo is not healthy to prosecute a vigorous campaign, let alone lead the country.
The speculations deepened when the Africa Watch Magazine recently published a report alleging that Nana Addo has caner. Nana Addo’s personal physician has however denied the report and described it as malicious.
