Ghanaian Filmmaker, Leila Djansi has, on the eve of election day in Ghana, urged her mother, 75, not to vote in this year’s election as according to her, the mother has nothing to gain from any of the parties seeking power.
Sharing a quote by Nigerian playwright Wole Soyinka, Leila Djansi who is known for being quite a controversial figure, asked her mother not to leave her sick sister at home to go and queue to elect anyone who she says would just come and line their pockets. “Hell To The No!”, she exclaimed.
“It’s voting day in Ghana and My 75-year-old momma wanted to go vote. Leave my sick sister and go queue to elect selfish folks who come go line their pockets every 4 years, hell to the no! Stay home momma. You have nothing to gain from voting either party,” her post read.
Leila Djansi, who knows so well about human rights and has been quite an advocate, for women, in particular, is just asking someone not to exercise their right because she thinks our leaders are selfish.
