Kofi Okyere Darko, popularly known as KOD, is a distinguished broadcast journalist and the Creative President of Nineteen57. He just disclosed which political party he will support in the 2024 presidential race.

The television star had previously admitted that he was a supporter of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), having backed the group throughout its election-year 2016 campaign.

The situation has changed, however, since KOD has declared his desire to support the National Democratic Congress (NDC) in the 2024 election. He claims that because the NPP broke their promises, he is dissatisfied in them.

On Wednesday’s Joy Prime morning show, he made these remarks in the ‘Big Interview’ portion with presenter Roselyn Felli.

“I think Mahama was an amazing and wonderful president. He did amazingly well for this country, but when he lost the election and Nana Akufo-Addo became president, I thought, well, Nana has been trying for all these years.

“If he had never become president, it would have been like the best man we never had, and especially now that the narrative we hear is that the next person is going to do what I was not able to finish; no, that’s not Nana Akufo-Addo.”

When asked if the president’s failure disappointed him, he responded, “I am. I’m highly  disappointed.

When asked once again, “So, in 2024, will you still vote for the NPP?” He gave the “No” response.

He said “Yes” when asked about the NDC.

Despite this, he believes that John Dramani Mahama, the former president and NDC candidate, is good and has the ability to improve Ghana’s economy.

The presenter said that he supported the NPP because of his hopes for a better Ghana under Nana Akufo-Addo’s leadership, which did not materialize.

Although he applauded the NPP administration for starting the free SHS program, he believes it was poorly carried out since they were unable to pay the caterers.

In addition, the fashion designer thinks the Akufo-Addo administration should have done a better job.

Ghanaians have criticized KOD for breaking journalistic standards by endorsing the NPP while working as a journalist. He clarified, though, “I’m just someone who is very passionate about Ghana.”
