Comedienne and on-air-personality Afia Schwarzenegger has declared that she will vote for President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo in the 2020 elections.
President Akufo-Addo will seek for a second term in the December 7 polls with former President John Mahama of the NDC, as his main contender.
While Afia Schwar openly campaigned for Mahama in the 2016 elections which he lost to Akufo-Addo, she thinks the current president deserves a second term more than the former she often describes as her father.
In a new video on social media, Afia Schwar explained her decision saying that Akufo-Addo had done very well and thus deserves a second term.
According to her, she would have loved to give her vote to her ‘father’ John Mahama but looking at the fact that her twin sons, James and John, are beneficiaries of Akufo-Addo’s flagship Free SHS policy, she will vote for him.
She added that just as her kids had benefited from the programme, she wanted other parents to also enjoy it, therefore, her campaign message for Akufo-Addo and the NPP.
Afia Schwar also touched on the fact that the Akufo-Addo-led administration was giving free water and also free electricity to the citizens which was a plus to them.
Still on reasons to vote for NPP come December 2020, she stated that the government had fulfilled so many promises and had ensured that things were running smoothly.
