Veteran Ghanaian actress Grace Omaboe, popularly known as Maame Dokono, says she regrets campaigning for Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo and his New Patriotic Party (NPP).
She stated that engaging in partisan politics and campaigning for President Akufo-Addo is one of her biggest mistakes.
Maame Dokono revealed that she recently fell sick and surprisingly, none of the leadership of the NPP including President Akufo-Addo showed up to check on her.
“Recently I felt sick very seriously. Nana even didn’t come to my house. He was aware I was sick but there was no sign of him. Meanwhile, he could have even sent somebody, but he didn’t. However, I’m not disturbed. That is why I’m advising that you (celebrities) to always be in the middle so that you can take opportunities from both sides.”
“Just the politics. If it is possible to turn back the clock, I would never venture into it. Now I have quit and I’m a neutral person now waiting to take an opportunity. But I won’t come out to show where I belong”, she said on TV XYZ.
The veteran actress campaigned for Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo and the NPP in 2008.
In the past, the veteran actress complained about being a victim of political targeting after campaigning once for the NDC and another time for the NPP.
