Nana Quame endorses Akufo-Addo
Popular Ghanaian highlife artiste, Nana Quame has endorsed the NPP flagbearer, saying he would vote for Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo if he were a registered voter in Ghana.
Speaking on ‘The Zone’, Tuesday, the ‘Odo Shock’ hitmaker said “the truth of the matter is, I haven’t got a vote because I wasn’t around when the registration was done but if I got a vote…I will vote for the NPP for one or two reasons.”
He added that “I was touched when Nana Addo said he left everything in the hands of God after the 2012 election petition, and not everyone will do that. Imagine what would have happened if Nana didn’t accept the outcome because there were people who were ready to do crazy things.”
Nana Quame added that he sees nothing wrong with celebrities endorsing presidential candidates.
“I think it’s good to endorse presidential candidates because it’s a practice that is common in the US and U.K and I don’t see anything wrong with it so if I have to endorse NPP why not, but in the meantime it’s a team work and I don’t take decisions alone.”
Nana Quame, who was involved in a near-fatal accident on the Kwahu-Accra road on Easter Monday, said it was only by the hands of God he survived.
“I will seek eye care or fly to the UK as soon as possible to get my eyes checked because particles of the broken windscreen may have entered them,” he added.
