Actress Lydia Forson has advised Ghanaians to go out and vote in their numbers in order to make an informed choice of who becomes their political leaders in the next four years.
To her best knowledge and experience in the game, “if you don’t vote as a citizen, you empower people who vote with their stomachs”.
To avoid the rants on social media about incompetence and mismanagement of the country’s resources, she advised that Ghanaians must make it a responsibility to take part in today’s polls
The actress who made this known in a tweet said it’s imperative that as citizens, you’ll join the change that you have always been yearning for.
“If you don’t vote, you’re empowering people who vote with their stomach to choose a leader on your behalf. And the cycle will continue with you ranting on social media all day. Be part of the change you seek.”
As a reminder, Lydia Forson is a Ghanaian actress, writer, and producer. In 2010 she won the African Movie Academy Award for Best Actress in a Leading Role.
