Pictures showing Nana Akufo-Addo, the New Patriotic Party (NPP) falgbearer, playing cards with some residents of La in the Greater Accra region are trending online.
In the picture, Akufo-Addo is seen seated and busily playing the cards with the residents as part of his campaign tour of the region.
It has, however, elicited condemnation from some social media users.
“Hmmm, instead of advising those lazy men to find some work doing, he joined them to play Chacha, all cos of power,” one Peter Agbovi said.
“Playing cards with able young men when they were supposed to be working.........what a wonderful leader.,” Joseph Ahorsu also said.
However, there were also words of support for Akufo-Addo, with some users commending him for, according to them, understanding the plight of ordinary Ghanaians.
“That's a good leader who [has] sympathy for young graduate youth who [don’t] have jobs to consolidate them and also listen what they think towards the 7 November elections,” Joseph Wonemi stated.
“This the kind of friendship leaders must have with the people. Just like couples who were friends before they got married this enables them to stay Peacefully because they share their problems as friends,” Emmanuel Opoku Junior added.
