Ghanaian actress Yvonne Nelson has warned the NDC against the use of her name and a post she recently made about dumsor for campaign.
Yvonne also denied speculations that she had endorsed the NDC with her post saying that she has never endorsed any political party since she was born.
She had earlier made a post on Twitter in which she wrote in part that: “….Dumsor, which Mahama fixed…”
She was reacting to a post by a Twitter user who accused her of campaigning for Akufo-Addo with her dumsor vigil only for him to come and make Ghanaians suffer.
Yvonne then hit back at the user calling him “dumb” and explained that she only led that vigil to impress on the NDC government then to restore electricity to Ghanaians, and not to campaign for the NDC.
Her post went haywire on social media with many NDC supporters hailing her for believing that she was singing Mahama’s praises and campaigning for him in disguise.
However, Yvonne has said that is far from it and warned the NDC to stop misquoting her on campaign platforms.
Her post has received massive reactions from fans.

Yvonne was in the news following her graduation from the Ghana Institute of Management and Public Administration (GIMPA).
She also trended in the news for cutting her hair low and wearing a new look.
