Actor Wayoosi Ditches NPP for NDC Over NAPO’s Disloyalty

Wayoosi has since shifted his support to the National Democratic Congress (NDC) and its presidential candidate, John Dramani Mahama

Kumahood actor, Joseph Osei, popularly known as Wayoosi, has publicly renounced his affiliation with the National Patriotic Party (NPP) and declared his support for the National Democratic Congress (NDC).

In a candid interview with blogger ZionFelix, Wayoosi revealed that his decision to switch allegiance was prompted by his disappointing experience with the Minister of Energy, Dr. Matthew Opoku Prempeh (NAPO).

The actor claimed that he had actively supported NAPO’s campaign for the Manhyia South constituency MP seat by mobilizing delegates to vote for him, but felt unappreciated and unrewarded for his efforts.

“I got to know NPP through NAPO, and he needed my assistance for his MP campaign. He handed me a list of delegates who might oppose him, and I reached out to each one to persuade them to vote for us,” he said.

The actor stated that after the successful election, the minister barely made time to talk to him, giving him one excuse after the other. It dawned on him that NAPO no longer required his services.

“Since he was elected MP, our conversations haven’t lasted more than 30 seconds. Nearly every time I called, he was occupied with a meeting. I realised that he no longer needed my help after achieving his goal. This realisation caused me to lose interest in the party,” Wayoosi stated in Twi.

His sentiments follow the selection of Opoku Prempeh as the Vice-Presidential candidate of the ruling party. 

Wayoosi has since shifted his support to the National Democratic Congress (NDC) and its presidential candidate, John Dramani Mahama.
