Actor Van Vicker has rebuked the governing National Democratic Congress (NDC) for using his image for campaign purposes without his consent.
According to the popular Ghanaian actor, the move by the NDC is a breach of his privacy and injurious to his career.
“The use of my image in connection with the support of NDC is unauthorised,” he said on his Instagram account.
A pro-NDC group, Transforming Ghana shared on social media a picture of the actor and two of his colleagues namely, Majid Michel, and John Dumelo, a known NDC supporter.
Mr Vicker said the picture sort to create the impression that the persons in the photo have endorsed a second term bid of the NDC flagbearer, President John Dramani Mahama.
But he explained in a post on his social media handle that picture was taken when the three of them were supporting victims of the June 3, 2015, disaster in which hundreds of Ghanaians lost their lives.
“Please do not view this photo as my endorsement of the NDC party,” he added.
He noted that he might consider legal action against the pro-NDC group. “I am obviously taking legal advice about this matter as I view this as a serious breach of my human rights,” he said.
