A week after endorsing Nana Akufo-Addo for the 2016 presidential elections, Ghanaian Gospel musician Cwesi Oteng has gone a step further to explain his decision and campaign for him.

The multiple award-winning singer, on September 10, 2016 declared his support for the three-time presidential aspirant of the opposition New Patriotic Party via Twitter. He tweeted: “I would like to show my support for Nana Akufo Addo and to fully endorse him to be our next POGH. I believe Ghana needs a breath of fresh air.”

Speaking on Accra FM on Sunday (September 18), a week after the public endorsement, Cwesi Oteng,who maintained he doesn't belong to any political party, reiterated his support for Nana Akufo-Addo saying he had made the decision as a “citizen” and a “millennial” after his assessment of the Better Ghana agenda promised by the governing National Democratic Congress (NDC).

“I am a citizen of Ghana; I am not a politician. Ghana was promised a Better Ghana. As a Ghanaian citizen, I’ve studied the system and I’ve said that: ‘OK, if this is the Better Ghana, eight years is enough; I’m voting for the NPP,” he stated.

Asked why he had settled on the presidential aspirant when there were several opposition candidates to pick from, Cwesi Oteng, certain Nana Akufo-Addo was best placed to challenge John Mahama for the presidency. “I do not want to waste [my] vote. It is good to support others but I do not want to waste [my] vote, so Nana is going [to be my choice],” he said.

Cwesi further noted that though Akufo-Addo had never led Ghana, the country’s history could not be written without reference to his relentless efforts as a “forerunner” to restore it to democratic governance during the years of military rule.

He explained: “Nana has not been president of Ghana yet, but write the history of Ghana. If you can remove him from [it], it’s not correct history, because Ghana used to be a military-ruled country before we came [under] constitutional rule. I do not remember any of the current faces fighting for Ghana to come out of military rule.

“My point is that if a person who without political authority as president of the state has been able to etch himself into the history books of our country, what will this person do if he is the president of the state?”
