'You can’t cheat nature' - Says minister after dozing off at event

“You cannot deceive nature,” Gt. Accra regional Minister , Nii Laryea Afotey Agbo gave this explanation for sleeping off at a public event.

Social media was awash with some video that captured the Minister sleeping off at one of the gathering during the President’s “Accounting to the people’s” tour in the Gt Accra region.

The iconic politician popularly referred to as “Lion”, could not live up to his accolade as he was struggling to stay awake while the President was addressing the people.

Reacting to his video circulating in the media Mr. Afotey told host Fiifi Banson on Anopa Kasapa on Kasapa 102.5 FM, that he’d been fronting the President’s tour, hence he was fatigued by the enormous work in his role during the ongoing tour in the region.

However he feels the fuss about him dozing off was needless since he was not the one being talked to by the President.

“It would have been quite worrying if the President was talking to me directly and I happened to doze off. For me I already know the message that was being churned out so it can be considered; but I was very tired at the time and I can’t cheat nature.”
