President Akuffo-Addo will be 80 years old by the time his turner of office expires. Hence, he is going to be on record as Ghana's currently most advanced-in-age Head-of-State, whilst in office.
Notwithstanding his age, H.E. Akuffo-Addo has proven beyond doubts, some may have their reservations though, that advancement in age is not really a limitation for one to be productive.
Prior to assuming office as president, there were some flagship policies he championed through the electioneering campaigns of 2008, 2012, and finally 2016; where he won and became the 5th President of the 4th Republic of Ghana.

Notable among some of such promises through which he has so far proven to Ghanaians that he can be trust is the implementation of the Free-SHS policy.

Although, some Ghanaians have some misgivings of how issues such as, corruption and 'galamsey' have been handled by Nana Addo's government, in my opinion, I believe Ghana is better-off under Nana Addo than the previous administration.
Moreover, others who seem not to be satisfied with Nana Addo's style of governing the country dwell on the fact that he is advanced in age and for that matter, there is the need for Ghana to set a retirement age for future presidential candidates.
Do you think Ghana must set a retirement age for presidential candidates?
