Nana Akufo Addo's Team Deny He Uses Artificial Teeth

By palaver

...But close associate dispute their claim

Members of the Nana Akufo Addo's campaign team say when one has artificial teeth or tooth arch (Kaka, as it is called the local language), is no sickness but why would one go to see a Doctor if he or she is not sick?
Over the last few days, Nana Akufo Addo's boys are all over the radio stations fighting very hard to wade off any suggestion that their role model, the Presidential aspirant, has no teeth and is using artificial ones.
Two Cuban trained Doctors, since the former Foreign Minister's debacle at Takoradi, have been working on him at the Ridge Hospital and he is also paying them handsomely for their services all in the hope that his artificial teeth would be properly fixed so he does not suffer the kind of humiliation that befell him at the Takoradi rally.
Early this month, the Abuakwa Member of Parliament and NPP Presidential aspirant was on a campaign tour of the Western Region during which he addressed a rally at Takoradi.
His artificial teeth fell out of his mouth during his address of party supporters and had to quickly pick it up and try to fix it back in his mouth but try as he did, the artificial teeth would not fix.
Nana Akufo Addo had to abandon his speech mid way and go back stage to fix his teeth before coming back to finish his speech.
His campaign team have tried very hard to cover up their boss's embarrassment but when they did not succeed and the news broke, they have invaded almost all the Radio stations in the capital to get them not to read anything on the former Attorney General and Minister of Justice.
Now their slogan is tooth ache or using artificial teeth is no sickness but Ghanaians would like them to answer just one question. Why is Nana Akufo Addo paying the two Cuban trained Doctor so much money to treat him if he is not sick?
