“Use your common sense; 2020 polls won’t change your life” – Yvonne Nelson to Ghanaians

Yvonne Nelson

Actress Yvonne Nelson has called on Ghanaians to prioritise their health and safety over the electoral process because the December 7 polls will not “change anything” in their lives.

In furtherance, she said that queuing to register in order to exercise the right to vote will put the lives of Ghanaians at risk.

According to the actress, the upcoming election will not cause any improvement in the lives of the ordinary Ghanaians because politicians do not care.

She tweeted: “Politician: Stay home, stay safe. People: OK. Politician: Go out and register. People: OK. Me: The politician doesn't care about you. Use your common sense. This election won't change anything in your life. Joining crowded queues endangers your life.”

Yvonne Nelson is known for her excellent acting and strong activism for issues of national interest.

She led the famous #DumsorMustStop Vigil in 2015 together with some of her colleagues in the entertainment industry and other like-minded citizens, which sought to address the issue of erratic power supply during the John Mahama-Amissah Arthur administration.
