Barima Sidney is really angry with a newspaper report which sought to create the impression that he had regretted supporting Nana Akuffo Addo in this year’s election. The newspaper (name withheld) published a story titled ‘’Sidney, Kwabena Kwabena, Great Ampong and Ken Kuranchie Regret Supporting NPP and Beg for Forgiveness’’.
‘’First and foremost, I speak for myself. It is a total fabrication and a big lie concocted from their own imagination (referring to the newspaper).It is never true and I will never ever regret backing Nana Addo and the NPP for Election 2012.It is my civic right under the freedom of association bill enshrined in the 1992 Constitution of Ghana to belong to any group of my choice.
I still believe in the Free SHS.Ghana has come a long way in our democratic process, celebrity endorsements of PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATES should not be taken too personal. I leave ANDY KANKAM (editor of the newspaper) and their intelligence desk in the hands of the Omnipotent .The battle is the Lord’s’’.
Barima Sidney is the second celebrity who supported Nana Akuffo Addo during the election with his hit song ‘’bye bye love’’ and s till supports the NPP Presidential Candidate even though he has not been declared winner of the elections.Socrate Safo quite recently also reaffirmed his support for Nana Akuffo Addo despite his loss.
