Presidency not about ‘shortness, wearing glasses’ – Vanderpuye
The race to the Flagstaff House in the 2016 elections will not be determined by “how short one is” or “the kind of spectacles” any presidential aspirant wears, Youth and Sports Minister Nii Lante Vanderpuye has said.
The Member of Parliament (MP) for Odododiodio, who was addressing a gathering at the official campaign launch of the governing National Democratic Congress (NDC) on Sunday, 14 August, in Cape Coast, the capital of the Central Region, explained that God had ordained President John Mahama to lead and develop Ghana.
Without specifically mentioning names, he indicated: “Being a president is not about being tall. It is not about how short a person is. Being a president is not about the spectacles that one wears but the love for one’s country and its people and finding solutions that will benefit citizens.”
This, he said, Mr Mahama had demonstrated by “eradicating the plight of citizens” in his first tenure.
Mr Vanderpuije said Mr Mahama had demonstrated the ability to solve the problems of the country and with humility, God would install him as president again this year to move Ghana forward.
