Ghanaian actress, Matilda Asare has said that she had no doubt about Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo winning the 2016 presidential elections.
Speaking to OneCharles on Otec FM’s Anokyekrom, she explained that her decision to join the campaign for change came after she realized that the country was heading towards the wrong direction and needed a change in leadership.
“I never had second thoughts or doubts endorsing Nana Addo because I knew from the first day that Ghanaians were going to vote for him, considering the mess created by President Mahama and the NDC.
According to her, though they could not secure the 57% of votes they promised Nana Addo, they are happy to be a part of the success story of Nana Addo and the NPP.
Touching on the vilification that characterized the campaign of celebrities who endorsed political parties, she denied ever casting any aspersions on political opponents but recounted many hurtfull things that were said about her.
“A colleague who endorsed and campaigned for the NDC called me empty-headed because I followed Nana’s campaign trail with my pregnancy” she said.
She however entreated her colleagues in the creative arts industry who have been attacked, threatened, cursed, vilified and called all sorts of names to forgive, forget and focus on the future of the creative arts industry.
She implored her colleagues make their arguments devoid of insults and focus on issues that will bring progress into the industry and country at large.
