The Deputy Communication Director of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Maame Afia Akoto, has jumped on critics of some public figures who campaigned for Madam Lydia Seyram Alhassan at the Ayawaso West Wuogon Constituency.
The likes of Prince David Osei, Kalybos, Bismark The Joke, Cwesi Oteng, Bibi Bright, Jessica Williams and others were heavily chastised after they campaigned in favour of the Incumbent MP against their colleague John Dumelo who is also vying for the same position but under the NDC party. TV presenter Bridget Otoo even described their actions as a daft move.
However reacting to this, Maame Afia Akoto in a post on Instagram stated that the critics of these public figures have the weakest understanding of democracy.
She gave an instance of which the Vice President, Dr Mahamdu Bawumia campaigned against his brother-in-law, Ramadan Adamu Muhammed at Adenta.
Madam Akoto wrote: “Those chastising the artists that went to Ayawaso West Wuogon to campaign with Maa Lydia Alhassan have the weakest understanding of democracy and should focus where their strength is. The sitting Vice President Dr. Mahamadu Bawumia @mbawumia was in Adenta to campaign for Hon. Yaw Buabeng Asamoah against His Own Brother-in-law, Ramadan Adamu Muhammed Yes! Direct Younger brother to his beloved wife @sbawumia. But there is peace in their home and family. Let’s get serious on this street and allow people to be. Respect to Actress @bibibright @jessicawilliamsgh @princedavidosei @kalybos_1 @bismarkthejoke @peterritchiegh @cwesiotengofficial & all who believes politics isn’t enmity but ideology.
