“I Regret Campaigning for John Mahama” – Leila Djansi


Popular movie producer and director, Leila Djansi has taken to the social media, her facebook page precisely, to express her deep regrets for campaigning for Mahama’s team under the umbrella of the National Democratic Congress(NDC) during the 2012 elections.

Leila Afua Djansi in her Facebook post published on Tuesday morning disclosed some of the difficulties she experienced when she publicly worked in an organized and active way, to canvass for votes for the party.

She said her decision to campaign for President Mahama in 2012 had not been worth it, especially because it drew animosity against her from some members of the public. She went on to say that although she lives outside Ghana, she greatly feels the impact of the untold hardship prevalent in her home country.

In the said post on Facebook, she lashed the government for their incompetence in relation to the branded buses by Smarty’s Management, a company owned by actress Selase Ibrahim. According to the post, she has lost interest in the party and has been wondering why the party would allow themselves to be used by unqualified individuals.

Her post reads thus:

Good morning from John Mahama’s Ghana!! Multiple days without water. Last week we had to call the company head to have taps opened.

I so regret campaigning for NDC although I have no vote in Ghana. I lost friends, someone threatened to burn down my office in Ghana cos I was NDC. After all the sacrifices made to campaign and have faith in this party, Ghana has been faced with so much incompetence from this team! Even not living in Ghana, you feel the hardship. But they have money to give to a less qualified individual to brand buses.

Buses we brand at no less than 5000ghc per bus were branded for 30,000. That money could have been used to improve the water-flow system in the country. Beds for hospitals.

This is the Ghana you get when selfish people thrive. When they give only to their family members. Clothe themselves in material things so they can be worshipped.

So shameful! And everyone has forgotten that the young woman in question hasn’t returned the money and hasn’t even been prosecuted.
