Highlife musician Rex Omar has openly declared his support for the governing Natoinal Democratic Congress (NDC) and its flagbearer President John Dramani Mahama.
According to him, he has received lots of insults and attacks for endorsing the second term big for President John Dramani Mahama and the NDC.
Speaking to Kafui Dey on GHOne TV’s morning show GH Today, Rex Omar said people must “understand the system of governance we have chosen for ourselves” and must show tolerance when their favourite stars endorse political parties they do not support.
“We decided to go into the multi-party democracy. And multi-party democracy means that everybody has a right to express his opinion,” he added.
“We are one people sitting in one car; other people say let Kwasi Manu drive the car I believe he is a better driver; another section says let Kwaku Mensah drive the car, I believe he is a better driver. Why should you fight and insult somebody who says Kwasi Manu or Kwaku Mensah should drive the car? Let the supremacy of the argument win the case.”
“It is our backwardness that is making people to insult others who endorse other candidates. At the end of the day do you think your insult can calm me into submission? No,” he said.
“The only thing I’ve suffered is people insulting me but I don’t care because they insult the Presidents themselves. People have laid down their lives and died for this country so if I see that somebody has the potential to help this country, and I endorse him and you decide to insult me, I really don’t care. I will say it as it is because where your right ends is where my right starts,” Rex Omar added.
