A picture of President Akufo-Addo in a group photograph with his college soccer team mates has popped up and is going viral quite fast. The picture was taken in Lancing College.
Last year, Lancing College in a report on its website on December 22 shared a picture to congratulate Akufo-Addo for winning the presidency of the Republic of Ghana.
Akufo-Addo attended the college between 1957–1961 before proceeding to New College, Oxford, to study Philosophy, Politics and Economics.
He left in 1962 and returned to Ghana to teach at the Accra Academy.
The Lancing College report noted that Akufo-Addo was called “Billy” when he was at the school, noting that our President was an “outstanding sportsman”, “a talented all-rounder”, and a “gifted debater” who stimulated many political discussions.
His full name was W.A.D Akufo-Addo, and his nickname was Billy, for William.
