Presidential aspirants

In Ghana, attending high school was always a major affair. Later in life, most people flaunt and associate with their schools in all aspects of their lives.

This includes Ghanaians in a variety of occupations such as medical doctors, engineers, football players, financiers, and politicians.

Despite the fact that the 2024 general election is more than two years away, some well-known and intriguing names have begun to emerge as potential contenders for President.
