Akufo-Addo is the man of the moment. He lost two elections - in 2008 and 2012. He also lost an election petition hearing.
However, he picked himself up to win the 2016 presidential election.
But it was not easy, Akufo-Addo went through some tough times.
Here are seven pictures that prove he suffered in his quest to become president.
1. Akufo-Addo drank sachet water and chewed groundnut in public
2. He played cards with the youth in Accra
3. He took a potentially dangerous walk across a lagoon in Accra
4. He went to Jerusalem for prayers
5. Akufo-Addo drank Kalyppo like no man's business
6. And yet another cards game with the youth
7. Akufo-Addo ate Kenkey in pubic with other top leaders of the party
And in case you are wondering what his then running-mate, Bawumia, did, well:
8. He pounded fufu on the campaign trail
9. He lent a hand in the flour mill
