Ghana’s ‘King of Comedy’, Derrick Kobina Bonney, popularly known as DKB, has vowed to stay away from his polling station on election day, December 7.
DKB made the disclosure a day after the Electoral Commission disqualified Madam Akua Donkor’s Ghana Freedom Party (GFP) and 13 others from contesting in the upcoming December 7 polls.
The EC cited, among other things, that Madam Akua Donkor signed three different signatures on the form, and also failed to present a qualified running mate for the GFP. According to the EC, the GFP running mate did not meet the age requirement by law.
Madam Akua Donkor and Mrs Patricia Asante, her running mate But commenting on the issue, a disappointed DKB said he had planned to vote for the GFP because she had great ideas to make Ghana a “fantastic” country. He is therefore not going to vote in the upcoming elections.
“If Akua Donkor has been disqualified, I am not voting this year”. He further explained by saying “Checking the manifestos of all the candidates, Madam Akua Donkor is my favorite because everything she is giving is free. She is going to reduce prices of almost everything meaning the country will be fantastic.
“I planned to vote for her so that as a nation we would enjoy Free Port, Free Education, Free Transportation, free Farm Produce etc. Who doesn’t like free things? I am very upset by the action the EC has taken”.
DKB who over the weekend thrilled fans in Kumasi at the “Pure Comedy” show with his excellent performance, would be in action again later this month as host of the RTP Awards.
