The minister for sports, Nii Lantey Vaderpuije, stirred the hornet's nest when he stated on Sunday that the presidency of Ghana is not for short people.
The remark was interpreted as a dig at opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP) flagbearer Nana Akuf0-Addo.
It did not take long for netizens to point out that are several short men occupying high-profile positions within the governing National Democratic Congress (NDC).
Here we go:
1. Julius Debrah
Here is the chief of staff at the office of the president.
2. Samson Ahi
He is the deputy minister for works and housing and member of parliament for the Bodi Constituency in the Western Region.
3. Felix Kwakye Ofosu
He is the deputy minister for communications.
4. James Agalga
He is the deputy interior minister.
5. Victor Bampoe
He is the deputy health minister.
