A Flagbearer Aspirant of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Stephen Atubiga, has said that any ‘stupid person’ or a ‘lunatic’ can be a President of Ghana.
According to him, one does not need any special skill to become a President insisting the success or otherwise of a President is dependent on the people he elects into various positions in his administration.
“Excuse me to say, any stupid person or any lunatic can be President but it is the kinds of people that you surround yourself with that makes you a successful President or not…,” he said on Asempa FM’s Ekosii Sen as monitored by GhanaNewsPage.Com.
To him, it is his appointees who will make his a successful President because there is ‘perfect President anywhere’.
