The flagbearer of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) Nana Addo Dankwah Akufo-Addo weeks ago was spotted in a picture drinking the natural fruit juice brand mostly for kids.
According to the photo that went viral on various media platforms, the NPP nominee for the December polls was seen in a vehicle in white attire enjoying his Kalypo.
His supporters subsequently, NPP supporters started a challenge posing with the drink and taking ‘selfies’ to counter attempts by his political opponents to make mockery of him.
