9 times Ghana's president didn't look overweight as reported by New York Times

Photos so damn cute

The article sought to look at the causes of obesity and based their research on Ghana’s own franchise of America’s Kentucky Fried Chicken (KFC).

The piece titled “Obesity Was Rising as Ghana Embraced Fast Food described Nana Akufo Addo as “round-faced overweight”

This description got lots of Ghanaians roasting the American News agency on social media.


People believe that in NY Times' quest to highlight the effects of the sprouting fast food joints on the health of Ghanaians, they abandoned the ethics of journalism by describing our president in such a demeaning and respectful manner.

Maybe they aren't wrong!

Interestingly, NY Times argued from looks perspective rather than the president's health statistics.

Business Insider sub-SaharanAfrica is treating you with 9 cute photos of the Ghanaian president that he didn't look overweight.
