The Flag bearer of the opposition New Patriotic Party, Nana Akufo-Addo has dismissed claims that he drove a Mercedes Benz while he studied in the university.
According to him, several stories have been told about his childhood by his detractors which are untrue just to create an image of him which is totally different from his personality.
Speaking to Kasapa FM’s Fiifi Banson at his Nima residence in Accra, Nana Akufo-Addo who comes from an influential family stated that he is proud of his father who did very well to lay a good foundation for him and his siblings.
“I never drove a Mercedes , I rather sometimes went for my mum’s Volks Wagon car and will occasionally pick one or two young girls out during the weekends. People say all manner of things about me most of which are not true. My father was a very successful man, one of the most successful lawyers of his time and I’m very proud of him. If that is why people say I was born with a golden spoon in my mouth then I don’t have a problem with that. He did very well to provide for his children, he did what any of us will like to do for his children given the opportunity.”
