Ghanaian actor, Clement Bonney who is popularly known as Mr. Beautiful says he is yet to come to terms with the fact that the National Democratic Congress (NDC) lost brutally to the opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP) in the 2016 general elections.
Speaking on Kasapa FM, he said he was shocked at the loss considering the positive feedback they received from the constituents during their campaigns.
In attempts to recover, he said he will avoid commenting on what has been lost and focus on the next election year (2020) while a special committee set up by party executives, investigates the cause of President Mahama’s defeat in the December polls.
“I’m yet to recover from the loss that is why I dislike talking about it and that is why a committee has been set up to investigate the reasons why we (NDC) lost the elections….We’re yet to discover why we lost the election.”
When asked about his opinions about the utterances of certain celebrities and their alleged influence on the outcome of the elections, the actor insisted they had nothing to do with the results.
“Those analysis that we lost the elections because of the actions of these celebrities in the NDC aren’t grounded… for me I don’t buy into such analysis,” he said.
Mr. Beautiful and other Ghanaian actors and musicians like John Dumelo, Tracey Boakye, Amandzeba Nat Brew, Rex Omar, Mzbel, Papa Nii, campaigned vigorously for President John Mahama to be retained in power.
