Turning the Banku shows I have leadership skills- Okoe Vanderpuije

Last week, the news was flooded with images of the Accra mayor, Alfred Oko Vanderpuije on his door-to-door campaign in the Korle-Gorno district. The mayor added some creativity to his campaign tactics, by braiding some people's hair and cooking Banku over a local stove.

On Monday, the mayor explained his campaign tactics in an interview on GHOne News, stating that as a leader, he needed to prove he had the appropriate leadership skills. He added that for anyone aspiring to be an MP, such a person must prove that he can identify with the people, and showing the people the skills one has, is the way to prove that one has the leadership potential.
