Pete Edochie, who according to many, bears a resemblance to the late former President, also shared a strong connection with him.

The veteran actor said prior to his first meeting with Mr. Rawlings, countless Ghanaians had approached him saying, he reminds them of their former president to the extent that his own daughters joined in the fray.

“I agree with people who say we have the resemblance because I know how I look and seeing him here I have no doubt they are right. It appears we have a lot in common”.
