In light of the current economic crisis in Ghana, Shatta Wale urges young people to put their lives first and disregard the opinions of politicians.
The Reggae Dancehall megastar says that the polarization of Ghanaian politics between the New Patriotic Party and the National Democratic Congress has led to a loss of rationality and an impoverished understanding of events.
Thursday, November 3, 2022, during an interview with Captain Smart on Onua TV/Maakye FM, Charles Nii Armah Mensah Jnr. said that it was important for young people to recognize the intent of both Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo and John Dramani Mahama.
“If we can form lines to vote for someone to come to power in Ghana, then they arrive and make these blunders… I was in the Mahama administration when people said he wasn’t doing anything. Now you’ve brought Akufo-Addo, and you’re claiming he’s doing nothing. If you can go and stand in line to vote for a president this time with the circumstances you are experiencing, it shows you are the issue.
“So let us rise and advise ourselves and find a proper leader for this country because people are dying in this country because of these fuel prices and dollar prices, and I believe you guys need to decide for yourselves because me, I don’t think I’d even have that time to vote for a politician that I know wouldn’t do anything for me, so I do things for myself, and so advise yourselves Ghanaians, and I love you,” he advised.
