Ghanaians are unhappy with Mrs. Rebecca Akuffo-Addo, the wife of the president of Ghana for disregarding COVID-19 rules to hold a birthday party.
The First Lady turned 70 years old yesterday and celebrated it in a grand style. She threw a party which was attended by close family and friends. In a video that was taken from the party grounds, the First Lady was spotted in a gold-themed dress while the attendees wore white.
As seen in the video, none of the attendees was seen in a face mask/shield neither did they observe social distancing as proposed by the president. She was seen walking hand in hand with family and surrounded while she danced her heart out.
This sparked a huge deliberation on social media where Ghanaians voiced their displeasure. According to them, the First Lady failed as a leader since she couldn’t follow the rules given by her own husband. What seemed to irritate them the most is the idea of throwing a party when the president has banned all social gatherings and also inviting over 25 people.
