He Was The First Person To Believe That I Could Be President- Nana Addo Breaks Down As He Reads Tribute At Sir John’s Funeral
Nana Addo has broken down at Sir John’s funeral.
According to him, Sir John is the first person who made him believe that he actually could be a president.
According to him, it all came about after the 2012 election petition when Sir John uplifted him with beautiful words.
Speaking at the funeral at Sir John’s hometown at Sakra Wonoo in the Ashanti Region, he said;
“…Make no mistake, Nana will lead NPP even if he is in a wheelchair…. Indeed, while few and the NPP could believe in me again, he had over-declared me as presidential candidate for the party for the 2016 elections three clear years ahead of time. Perhaps he had seen something others have not. For me, that statement in 2013 reinforced my belief that I can always count on Sir John as a true and true Akufo-Addo loyalist and someone I could call a good friend.”
Sir John finally went home yesterday after being in the morgue for a year.
Before his death, he served as the general secretary for the NPP and passed away as the CEO of the forestry commission.
May his soul find rest.
