Shatta Wale has moved away from supporting and throwing his weight behind political parties to the supporting of laudable policies.
This is precisely what he has done after speaking well of government’s One District One Factory (1D1F) policy on his social media timeline a few days to the election.
In the post, Shatta Wale said the 1D1F policy has made it possible for the Juaben Oil Mill to process palm oil for consumption, export and electricity.
According to him, this policy has made it possible for women in the palm oil sector who hitherto had no employment, to be gainfully employed.
Remember all the foods and products made from Palm Oil back in the day? Can you name some? Juaben Oil Mill, which is proudly funded by Ghana Exim Bank under 1D1F, is processing palm oil for consumption, export and electricity! The factory has made this possible through innovation and the support of its dedicated women employees. #Gexim #MadeInGhana
Do you remember the news item where it was reported that Shatta Wale was paid GHC2M by the government to serve as the brand ambassador for the Ghana Export and Import Bank?
Well, Shatta Wale may just be doing his work as an ambassador and may not have any motive of promoting the government or subtly endorsing the NPP ahead of the elections.
Shatta Wale has said he is not going to endorse any political party ahead of the election this year; a contrary statement to what he did in 2016 when he was on the campaign trail with then-President Mahama.
Some of the mixed reactions his post received are as follows:
