Popular Kumawood movie star, Agya Koo, has declared support for NPP flagbearer, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo Addo saying he would be a more reliable choice compared to the “disappointing” sitting president, John Mahama.
Agya Koo who called on Nana Addo at his Nima residence in Accra today, Thursday September 22, 2016, to formally announce his decision to use his celebrity to amass votes for him, said he wants “to help bring Ghana back on track economically”.
On Wednesday, the actor held a press conference in which he said his decision to align himself with the NPP flagbearer is largely informed the retardation his acting career has suffered since John Mahama became president.
“For five years now, no producer has featured me in a movie because they claim there is no money, even the band that I have, no one comes to hire us, they prefer the spinners…,” he told the press.
He said the NPP did better when President Kufuor was in power and he believes Nana Addo will be as effective too.
“Now the ordinary Ghanaian cannot afford basic items like Milk, Sugar, Rice, Bread and other household commodities. We have taken the trouble to do a thorough research of prices of goods and services on the market and compared them to the time of the NPP administration.
Agya Koo was with colleague actress Matilda, and a group of individuals in his publicity team.
