Leila Djansi regrets campaigning for John Mahama 


​US-based Ghanaian film director Leila Djansi has slammed the John Mahama-led government for making Ghana a difficult place to live.

The award-winning director believes that Ghanaians were living in much better conditions eight years ago than they are doing today.

Leila, speaking in an interview on Daybreak Hitz on Hitz FM with KMJ, lamented that she had high hopes for the NDC but their performance is nothing to write home about.

“I actually have [regretted] because I had high hopes. I am a leader myself [and] on set, a lot of things happen that you do not know about and you only find out… it’s already become a problem.

“I do not know whether it’s a John Mahama thing or if it’s the people around him.

 I do not know what it is but all I know is Ghana eight years ago, is not Ghana today and it’s not a good thing. I think we should be in a better place right now,” she said.

This won’t be the first time the Sinking Sands director is expressing her reservations about the NDC government.

In January this year, she said in a post that she had regretted campaigning for the party to win the 2012 elections.

Good morning from John Mahama’s Ghana!! Multiple days without water. Last week we had to call the company head to have taps opened.

I so regret campaigning for NDC although I have no vote in Ghana.

I lost friends, someone threatened to burn down my office in Ghana because I was NDC.

After all the sacrifices made to campaign and have faith in this party, Ghana has been faced with so much incompetence from this team! Even not living in Ghana, you feel the hardship. But they have money to give to a less qualified individual to brand buses.

Buses we brand at no more than Ghc 5000 per bus were branded for GhC 30,000.

 That money could have been used to improve the water- flow system in the country. Beds for hospitals… This is the

Ghana you get when selfish people thrive. When they give only to their family members. Clothe themselves in material things so they can be worshiped.

So shameful! And everyone has forgotten that the young woman in question hasn’t returned the money and hasn’t even been prosecuted.
