Despite his initial enthusiasm and dedication, Wayoosi expressed profound disappointment in the aftermath.

For Wayoosi, this neglect and lack of communication amounted to betrayal.

He stressed that he felt used and discarded after having played a pivotal role in NAPO’s political success and as such, he stopped supporting the political party.

Ahead of the 2024 general election, Wayoosi has announced his intention to cast his vote for the former President of Ghana, John Dramani Mahama.

For him, this endorsement simply shows a desire to see a change in leadership and a return to what he perceives as a more responsive and accountable governance.
