Akufo-Addo finally claps back at critics who used his height against him

President Akufo-Addo has finally replied his critics who for close to a decade held the erroneous impression that Ghana’s presidency is meant for only tall people.

The height of President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo became a major campaign tool for the current opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) in the build up to the 2008, 2012 and 2016 general elections

Responding to the claims over his height, the president who was at Sawla during his two-day tour of the Savannah Region, urged students who gathered to follow their ambition irrespective of the criticisms from their opponents.

“Follow your ambition. You remember what they used to say about me? Akufo-Addo can never be President he is too short…they say he is too short, you remember that,” he asked

Determined as he was, he soldiered on and won the 2016 elections with a wide margin and was sworn into office as the Commander-In-Chief of the Ghana Armed Forces on January 7, 2017.
