Ghanaian gospel musician, Cwesi Oteng, has said the late President Evans Atta-Mills, would have loved to hand over power to the New Patriotic Party (NPP) flagbearer, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo. According to him, Nana Akufo-Addo’s achievements and contributions to the country’s democracy are relevant, and that the country’s history cannot be written without mention of him.
Cwesi Oteng, who paid a courtesy call on the NPP flagbearer on Friday, September 23, said, “I said somewhere that, if the history of Ghana is being written, it cannot be complete without your name in it.
I even told someone that Former President Atta-Mills would have loved to hand over power to your presidency.”
The gospel artiste last week declared his support for the NPP candidate via a Twitter handle when he posted, “I would like to show my support for @NAkufoAddo and to fully endorse him to be our next POGH. I believe Ghana needs a breath of fresh air.”
Cwesi Oteng said he believes Ghana could do much better than it is doing now, but needs to have its leadership “outside political colours” so that Ghanaians can choose a right leader for President. “Ghana was promised a better Ghana and now everybody has seen how a better Ghana is like; and so we can believe in change and dare it,” he said.
‘Other endorsements’ Cwesi Oteng is among a tall list of other Ghanaian entertainers who have declared their support for the NPP flagbearer ahead of the December polls. Others include, Agya Koo Lucky Mensah, Wisa Greid, Dada KD, Kwabena Kwabena, Barima Sidney, Leo Mensah, Daddy Lumba and Nana Quame.
The National Democratic Congress (NDC) candidate, President John Mahama has also received the endorsement of showbiz personalities such as Selasie Ibrahim, Mr. Beautiful, John Dumelo, Mzbel, Bukom Banku, Ayitey Powers and Papa Nii.
