Gospel musician, Cwesi Oteng, in an interview revealed that people hate him because he campaigned for the President, Nana Akufo Addo and the New Patriotic Party (NPP) during the 2016 elections.
When asked by KOD on The Zone on Starr 103.5FM why he endorsed Akufo-Addo, since he also believed president Mahama did well, he said “It’s one of the decisions that I sometimes regret making because I realized people hate you for no reason.
That’s the reason I regretted, not because I endorsed him. People frown for no reason. And I thought per my knowledge and understanding of the Ghanaian. So I felt that I had an independent human right to make a choice.
“Any government that takes over a sitting government, you look at the presidency of John Mahama, it was an amazing presidency, I don’t care what anybody thinks. Look at the stuff he did,” he said.
Cwesi Oteng further said, “Ghana doesn’t have any sitting money to do those things, he has to borrow money to do them. Any person who takes up a government like that is not going to find it easy. Because there’s a lot of pressure.
“I think Nana is rising. Of course we’re looking at the next two years and possibly his next term of four years, but otherwise, I think that by the end of his presidency then we can judge him.
“People go silent on who they’re voting for, but I think that for democracy and for peace and for Africa not to see wars, I have to be able to know your political party and love you than for you to hide your political party for me to love you.”
