Veteran Ghanaian actress, Grace Omaboe, well known as Maame Dokono, has said she has regretted campaigning for Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo and the New Patriotic Party.
She bemoaned in a recent interview that President Akufo-Addo and the party neglected her when she was sick after campaigning for them during the 2008 electioneering campaign.
Based on what she has experienced, Maame Dokono has vowed not to openly campaign for any political again.
“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,” she told Agyemang Prempeh on TV XYZ’s ‘The Legends’ programme.
Maame Dokono added: “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.”
