Akufo-Addo Endorses NDC’s Nii Lante Vanderpuye – A pretty off-kilter and maybe funny moment was seen at the NPP’s last rally at Mantse Agbonaa in Accra as President Akufo-Addo presented the NPP’s parliamentary up-and-comer of the zone as Nii Lante Vandepuye rather than Nii Lante Bannerman.
“In Odododiodio, if you are voting for me, then you are also voting for Nii Lante Vanderpuye”, the president said as he held the hand of Nii Lante Bannerman.
Having been advised that he had caused a bumble, President Akufo-Addo immediately referenced Nii Lante Bannerman. In the midst of chuckling, he was sorry and asked individuals to pick Bannerman over Vanderpuye.
“I didn’t speak well at all. I have a made mistake. What am I going to do with Nii Lante Vanderpuye. I meant Nii Lante Bannerman and I want you all to vote him”, Nana Akufo-Addo said as the crowd cheered and applauded.
