Blakk Rasta, a media personality, musician, who currently runs a radio show on Zylofon FM has asserted that President Nana Akufo-Addo will continue to sleep at public events.
Blakk Rasta asserted in an interview that is yet-to-be aired.
According to Blakk Rasta, Akufo-Addo’s age and the kind of pressure he deals with will always cause him to sleep at public events.
“In Africa, we believe that old men have wise counsel. But if you elect some as President at the age of 75, his Senior Minister is 77 years. And they are the ones running left, right, center, trying to fix the economy…they will end up sleeping…
“They will sleep because old men, old women, in fact, they easily get tired and they will fall asleep. If it is a young man who falls asleep, people will ask whether or not he is sick. But if an old man is asleep, you tell people not to disturb him; the old man is asleep,” He said.
“You see, that’s the sense behind it. If you love the old man, let him relax. Why do we have the Council of Elders? We have Council of Elders to have elderly people who are brainy, to be there and give wise counsel,”.
Blakk Rasta further lambasted the electoral body in Ghana for selecting old men to run the country.
“At the helm of the nation’s duty, if you put an old man there, who retired fifteen years ago from the normal public service age, to be President, you are doing Africa a disservice. It is not good. We have to think about it. It is a no-no. That’s it!”
