Actress Vicky Zugah has told political parties that they should offer cash for her and other creative arts players to help them canvass for votes in the upcoming general elections in December.
According to her, she would only be willing to campaign for any political party if she got a good offer financially.
“By campaigning for a political party, you are creating enemies for yourself because you don’t know which political parties your fans belong to. You can lose all your fans but that won’t be my problem if the money is good.
“Money is everything now and If any political party offers me a good amount, I will publicly come out to endorse that party,” she told Graphic Showbiz in an interview.
Vicky Zugah explained that politicians could not be trusted because they promised all sort of things just to come to power and then they delivered virtually nothing.
“Check the history, none of the political parties has been able to fulfill at least 80 per cent of its promises when they come to power. They will say everything to convince you to vote for them and disappoint you at the end.
“Gone are the days when I looked into the campaign messages of political parties before voting for them but I have now realised they all tell the same lies,” she said.
Vicky advised the youth not to kill themselves for a political party simply because they had been offered something good.
“I want to tell the youth to desist from engaging in any sort of riots during this election. If you are paid to create any form of commotion, have it at the back of your mind that you have a family. When you die, the politician will always get the next person to do the job he offered you,” she said.
