President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has said he considers himself ‘lucky’ for marrying a woman who understands his busy schedules.
According to Nana Akufo-Addo, his wife, Rebecca Akufo-Addo, is understanding and accommodates his long stay away from home.
“I can stay away from home for a whole week and when I happen to be home, too, I leave early for work and return late, sometimes between 10 pm and 11 pm”.
“Some woman will not understand but I’m lucky my wife does”.
“I’m very fortified and I don’t have too much worries about what’s happening in my house”.
“She is also a very busy woman”.
“So, I’m saying when you get an understanding woman like that, it helps”, Nana Akufo-Addo said on Kessben FM in the Ashanti region”.
The President is in the Ashanti region on a three-day tour.
At a courtesy call on the Asantehene on Monday, 28 September 2020, Nana Akufo-Addo noted that development, under his tenure of office, has been distributed equitably to all parts of the country.
