Popular Ghanaian actor, Van Vicker, has campaigned for President Akufo-Addo and his free SHS policy in less than a week to the 2020 General Elections.
In a post he made on Instagram and sighted by YEN.com.gh, Vicker highlighted the achievement of the policy, and though he did not state, encouraged Ghanaians to vote for Akufo-Addo in order for free SHS to keep running.
Sharing his own experience, the actor said he had dreams of becoming a gynecologist in the future as a young boy. And that if the free SHS policy had existed then, his dream would have been realised.
According to him, his mother depleted her savings on his senior high school education and so he could not go to the university then to pursue his dream.
The actor noted that if the Free SHS policy had been in existence then, his mother would have saved that money to help him further his education.
Many people have reacted to Vicker's post with many praising him.
Joseph, for instance, is one of them:
josephineeffieogoe: "Spot on V.V, its credit to our country.️"
Kusi also wrote that Van Vicker is very honest:
kusi204: "You are very honest, the other u called the minister of foreign affairs out for speaking ill of actors, u are very fair minded, we need people of your ilk in our society."
Gilbert, and Shirley, prayed God's blessing for Van Vicker:
gilbertbroni25: "God bless you."
shirleyopoku1: "God bless you."
Afia could not agree more with Van Vicker more:
i_am_afia_boat: "The truth has been told. It’s about time we do away with politics and accept this policy to help grow the nation."
Hanno had a similar view:
hannokohbea: "This is very true. Most of us, though we are in the university now, wouldn't have to see our parents who have retired (pensioners) still working to provide my tertiary fees cos he would have saved enough from what he spent during my SHS years. I totally agree with you."
Meanwhile, Van Vicker's post comes at a time that some celebrities have publicly endorsed various political parties, particularly the NPP.
Dancehall star, Samini, for instance, has publicly thrown his weight behind President Akufo-Addo and the New Patriotic Party (NPP).
So far, it appears just three celebrities have declared their support for former president John Mahama.
