It’s been exactly two years since President Akufo-Addo and the New Patriotic Party (NPP) came into office as the ruling government.
The NPP won the 2016 elections by a landslide margin, polling 53% of the total votes cast to the National Democratic Congress’ (NDC) 44.4%.
The Nana Addo government has since embarked on a number of developmental projects and policies, but it appears not everyone is happy.
In fact, for some celebrities, it has not been all rosy since they voted or campaigned for the NPP in the lead up to the 2016 elections.

Below are three celebs who may have regretted voting or campaigning for Nana Addo and the NPP:
1. Nana Appiah Mensah Perhaps the most talked about man in the country right now, Nana Appiah Mensah has had a tough last few months.
The Menzgold CEO has been in the news recently following his company’s stretching troubles with the state institutions. Currently, NAM 1 has been declared wanted after a warrant was issued for his arrest on Wednesday.
Meanwhile, his company has also been closed down with aggrieved customers fighting to get their locked up investments refunded. Just over a year ago, NAM 1 was in the ‘good books’ of the President, but with the recent controversies surrounding Menzgold, it is easy to see why he may have regretted ever having that association.
2. A Plus Comedian Kwame Asare Obeng, popularly known as A Plus, has been a constant critic of the Nana Addo government. This is despite the fact that A Plus is well known to be a card-bearing member of the New Patriotic Party (NPP).
He maintains that he will always be a critic of bad governance, pointing to the fact that he criticised the NDC whiles they were in government and will continue to do so to the ruling NPP.
A Plus believes President Akufo-Addo has not been firm enough when it comes to fighting corruption and once accused some government appointees of using their positions to perpetrate untoward acts at the Jubilee House.
3. Cwesi Oteng Gospel musician Cwesi Oteng also recently revealed that he sometimes regrets endorsing Nana Addo and the NPP. Contrary to the reasons given by others, the singer says he regrets because it has caused some people to dislike him.
According to him, there are some people who see him and frown or get angry just because he endorsed Akufo-Addo. Although his reasons are not related to the performance of the government, Cwesi Oteng suggested he will not endorse any political party or candidate anymore.
