New Patriotic Party(NPP) flagbearer hopeful, Dr. Afriyie Akoto, has revealed how a heartbreak he experienced from a lady during his prime age as a man nearly jeopardized his future.

Dr. Akoto shares that one hasn’t truly matured unless one has undergone that specific experience, as it’s a fundamental part of the adult experience for everyone.

The former Minister of Food and Agriculture revealed that he experienced heartbreak from a lady many years ago, which was particularly challenging for him as a young man who had not yet settled down for marriage.

Speaking in an interview with Starr FM on the Starr Chat show which GhanaWeb, Dr. Afriyie Akoto emphasized that it is normal for a man to suffer heartbreak because it is part of the maturity process for an individual.

Bola Ray: How did you take that?

Dr. Afriyie Akoto: Well, very hard.

Bola Ray: Is the lady still around?

Bola Ray: So what would you tell young men going through this phase?

Dr. Akoto Afriyie: They shouldn’t worry it’s part of life. If you don’t go through those kinds of experiences then it means you’re still not mature.
