The award-winning actor and comedian Kofi Adu, aka Agya Koo, and his team have launched a 57% win campaign for the flagbearer of the opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP), Nana Addo Dankwah Akufo-Addo.
At a press conference on Wednesday at his private office near Sofoline alignment a suburb of the Kumasi Metropolis, the Kumawood star and his colleague actors pledged their unflinching support to the NPP torch bearer.
According to Agya Koo, Ghanaians are faced with unprecedented precarious economic hardships which have consequently led to job losses and high unemployment rate, poor healthcare provision and cut-throat utility bills.
He disclosed that aside his movies which is currently not doing well as a result of the poor economic conditions, he is a parent and know how expensive it is to give his children quality education in this country.
“Now the ordinary Ghanaian cannot afford basic items like Milk, Sugar, Rice, Bread and other household commodities. We have taken the trouble to do a thorough research of prices of goods and services on the market and compared them to the time of the NPP administration.
I challenge anyone who disagrees with me to do his or her own checks from the markets to ascertain the veracity or otherwise of this sad situation.
Apart from being a movie star as many Ghanaians know to be, I am also a parent and know how expensive it is to give your children quality education in this country”
This and many others he observed, has informed his decision to join the change team and sing in the chorus and declare his support for the NPP torch bearer as well launch the AGYA KOO AGENDA 57% FOR NANA ADDO” to support the campaign of the NPP in order to effect the needed change at the December 7 polls.
