PRESIDENT OF THE REPUBLIC
19TH APRIL , 2022.”
Surprised by the illegible handwriting, some Ghanaians expressed their reactions.
Someone said, “This handwriting needs a special decoding o. But I thought President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo is a lawyer. How then does his handwriting resembles that of a medical doctor so much that I read the characters can’t?”
“If you strain your eyes and yet still you can’t read the letter, go see your optometrist because you need eye glasses. Besides the message isn’t meant for you so what you are trying to do is tantamount to konkonsa,” one of the socialites who commented said.
Another person commented, “All of those who are complaining about the handwriting, was the message directed to you? The one to whom the message is meant to be sent can read and understand it so what’s your problem here?” He asked.
