Founder and leader of the Ghana Freedom Party (GFP) says her running mate, Patricia Asante is 42 not 32-year-old as it is being speculated in the media.
According to Akua Donkor, the uneducated farmer made a mistake when writing her date of birth on the nomination forms at the Electoral Commission (EC).
The presidential aspirant on Monday, October 3, 2016 named Mr.s Asante as her running mate for the December 7 presidential and parliamentary elections.
The Junior High School (JHS) dropout said she is 32-years-old and ready to partner Akua Donkor to contribute her quota to change Ghana.
But her age has sparked controversy since her age does not qualify her to occupy the position.
In a rebuttal, Akua Donkor on Adom News said her running mate cannot be blamed for the gaffe since she cannot read or write.
She explained that, her [Patricia] father died very early so does not know her actual date of birth “but I can tell you she is more than 40 years”.
Akua Donkor said her running mate could not complete her basic education, but maintained that, it will not hinder her from delivering as a future vice president of Ghana.
