Saturday, December 8, was the birthday of Ghana’s former President, John Agyekum Kufuor.

The former president, who governed Ghana between 2001 to 2009, was celebrating his 80th birthday.

He organised a bash at his residence where bigwigs of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) were heavily represented to wish him well and mark the day with him.

Present at the function was the ousted former chairman of the NPP, Paul Afoko, who prior to the 2016 election suggested Akufo-Addo could not be president.

The president and Afoko met for the first time in three years and had a brief discussion.

The President who returned from Tamale on the 34th National Farmers Day Celebration is reported to have said “Chairman, how are you? Longtime”.

In response, Mr Afoko replied “Mr President, I am ok. I hear of you every day”.

Below are photos of the birthday and the rare encounter between the President and his party’s former chairman.
