TV personality Leo Mensah, popularly known as “Ntoatoahene” has joined the growing list of Ghanaian entertainment persons who have come out to declare their choice of political parties and presidential candidates they want to win the upcoming 2016 election.
Mensah in a chat with Zionfelix.net openly endorsed NPP’s Nana Akuffo-Addo by claiming that he does not celebrate mediocrity and therefore would want to see NPP come to power.
He condemned president Mahama’s administration when he said: “First of all I am a Ghanaian. We gave the mandate to Mahama in 2012 but looking at his performance I believe my people deserve better.
I do not celebrate mediocrity so then the only choice the masses are calling for is Akuffo Addo.
I am with the people and the people want Change so I also want Change.”
He called on Ghanaians to vote out the Mahama administration since he was not performing as expected of him.
Mensah said he has vowed to make sure president Mahama and his party loses this year’s election due to what he perceives as high cost of living, high inflationary rate and the erratic power supply.
He said: “What annoys me is their continuous blaming of this “Dumsor” issue on their predecessors … After 8 years of being in power and they still can’t find a lasting solution? Their profligate spending and level of corruption, misuse of the public purse with impunity, 3.6 bus branding, SADA GYEEDA and many other things.”
“I am vigorously going to do everything within my power to contribute my quota to discourse development of my nation and the quota is making sure this government is booted out of office.
I am going to my village and I will campaign from village to village, Bomfa to Achiase to it’s neighboring towns and villages to make sure Mahama gets nothing there”
He said he was against the notion that entertainers who declare their support for political parties were bribed before they supported them.
The comic character added:“Most a times people think when you endorse a candidate then your pocket has been filled. I’ve not received anything from anybody. I will not receive anything from anybody but I will use my resources to campaign for Nana Addo.”
He promised not to demand money from the opposition party should they approach him for talks.
