Chief Executive Officer of Event Republic, Mel Kwasi
Davis has vehemently criticized the decision by
Lucky Mensah to ditch the ruling National
Democratic Congress (NDC) for the opposition New
Patriotic Party (NPP)
saying it is the biggest
mistake the highlife musician has made in his
Lucky Mensah in an interview with Abrantepa on
Radio Univers’ mid-morning show, Brunch2Lunch
explained that he has cut ties with NDC because
the party has driven the country into a ditch.
The musician who recorded a song to canvass
votes for NDC in the 2008 elections said the party
is retrogressing at the progressive rate, a reason
he has taken a U-turn and recorded a campaign
song for the NPP.
He expressed optimism that NPP and its
flagbearer, Nana Akufo-Addo will be the solution to
Ghana’s ailing economy.
But Mel Kwasi Davis has opined that it was a
wrong decision for the musician to have made. He
believes Lucky Mensah should have rather made
his reservations known to NDC than publicly
announcing his support for NPP.
Speaking on Hitz FM’s Daybreak Hitz, Mel likened
Lucky Mensah’s posture to a man who divorces
his wife because of an issue he never made any
attempt to find solutions to.
“When you go into politics, credibility is key.
You’ve stayed with the party and now what you are
telling the whole world is, if you’re married and
you have problems with your wife, you’ll leave her
and go marry another woman because you don’t
have the balls to face it. This is politics we’re
talking about. You’re supporting an ideology, there
is something wrong and you’re leaving, really?
That is the biggest mistake he’s done in his entire
career. This will hand him in that grey area where
when you’re coming into a party, they see you as
a snitch,” he told host, KMJ.
Mel further questioned what makes Lucky Mensah
believe that untested policies by NPP are
“Has Ghana all of a sudden become some haven
under Nana Akufo-Addo’s policies that haven’t
been implemented? If he is moving to NPP, we
don’t have a problem… he’s actually shot himself
in the foot. It’s going to affect him,” he noted.
Meanwhile Lucky Mensah has indicated that his
decision will win NPP more votes.
