With a little over a month to the crucial Presidential and Parliamentary elections on December 7, politicians contesting in the upcoming polls have intensified their campaign activities.
Especially for the Presidential candidates, they are embarking on a vigorous campaign touring the whole country selling their messaging with the hope of convincing the electorate to vote them into power.
The strenuous nature of such campaigns requires that a candidate is in the best state of health to undertake such an exercise.
Maverick counselor, George Lutterodt in an exclusive interview with Kasapa FM‘s Yaa Serwah Akoto stated that the arduous nature of the campaigning could even affect the sexual performance of the candidates.
“President John Dramani Mahama, Nana Akufo Addo and the two other qualified Presidential candidates also need psychologists and counselors in this stressful campaign period. This is because during this time of stress, they can even lose erection because the stress is too high.”
Meanwhile, Counselor George Lutterodt has emphasized the need for the 13 Presidential Candidates who have been disqualified from contesting the December 7 election to undergo psychological counseling.
According to him, the state in which the affected Flagbearers find themselves after their shock disqualification which is a great lose to them is close to madness, adding that there’s the need for them to be assisted to go through the five stages of grieving, which include denial, anger, bargaining, depression and acceptance.
The Electoral Commission after the close of nominations announced the disqualification of the 13 Presidential candidates including Dr Papa Kwesi Nduom, Nana Konadu Agyemang Rawlings, Hassan Ayariga, Dr Edward Mahama among others, following some anomalies found on their nomination forms such as fraudulent signatures and absence of a required number of signatures.
