Kofi Okyere Darko, commonly known as KOD, an award-winning broadcast journalist and Creative President of Nineteen57, has stated which political party he would vote for in the 2024 general election.
Previously, the media celebrity stated he was a member of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) after supporting the party’s campaign ahead of the 2016 elections.
KOD, on the other hand, has declared his desire to vote for the National Democratic Congress (NDC) in 2024. He expresses his dissatisfaction with the NPP for failing to meet their commitments.
He shared these comments during the ‘Big Interview’ segment with host Roselyn Felli on Joy Prime’s morning show on Wednesday.
“I think Mahama was an amazing and wonderful president. He did amazingly well for this country, but when he lost the election and Nana Akufo-Addo became president, I thought, well, Nana has been trying for all these years.
“If he had never become president, it would have been like the best man we never had, and especially now that the narrative we hear is that the next person is going to do what I was not able to finish; no, that’s not Nana Akufo-Addo.”
Asked if he was disappointed by the president’s failure, he said, “I am. I’m highly disappointed.”
Again, when he was asked, ‘So come 2024, will you still vote for the NPP?’ He answered “No”.
Asked about the NDC, he said “Yes”.
Despite this, he believes that John Dramani Mahama, the former president and NDC candidate, is good and has the ability to improve Ghana’s economy.
The presenter said that he supported the NPP because of his hopes for a better Ghana under Nana Akufo-Addo’s leadership, which did not materialize.
Although he applauded the NPP administration for starting the free SHS program, he believes it was poorly carried out since they were unable to pay the caterers.
In addition, the fashion designer thinks the Akufo-Addo administration should have done a better job.
Ghanaians have criticized KOD for breaking journalistic standards by endorsing the NPP while working as a journalist. He clarified, though, “I’m just someone who is very passionate about Ghana.”
