A new photo posted by the wife of flagbearer of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Mrs. Rebecca Akufo-Addo has raised a number of eyebrows among observers.

The photo which was taken during one of the campaign tours of the NPP in the Hohoe and Buem constituencies with Mrs. Akufo-Addo speaking to a crowd was shared on her Twitter page on Monday.

The suggested reasons behind Mrs. Akufo-Addo not holding the megaphone could be one of these: It was too heavy to hold; the kind gentleman offered to hold it for her; or maybe she is just too posh to hold it.

This is not the first time a powerful woman has been criticised for certain (in)actions. In the past, the First Lady of the republic of Ghana, Mrs. Lordina Mahama was criticised  for not holding her own handbag during an international meeting she had with the First lady of China.
