Veteran actress and media Personality, Grace Omaboe is popularly known as Maame Dokono has gone hard on President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo and the New Patriotic Party (NPP)
According to her, engaging in active politics and campaigning for President Akufo- Addo is her biggest mistake after she was abandoned on her sickbed.
Telling her story on TV XYZ on the programme the Legends with host Agyemang Prempeh, she revealed that she recently fell very ill and surprisingly, none of the leadership of the NPP including President Akufo-Addo showed up to check on her
“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 recounted during her interview.
When asked if there is anything if given a second chance she may wish not to repeat, Maame Dokono insisted saying; “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 to”.
Maame Dokono in the 2008 general election was seen strongly showing massive support to the then-candidate Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo and also vied for Parliamentary seat but lost the election eventually.
She also revealed that her support for Nana Addo made her lose her acting career as many film directors refused to cast her in the movies just for the reasons of her political affiliation.
