Expressing one’s political affiliation is seemed to be weird and awkward in our society due to victimizations and political maliciousness that happen when people come out to support political parties.
Governance system in Ghana has caused this to happen. When a party wins, they become the sole managers of the country. Anything, anyone, and everything that is not theirs all of a sudden becomes negative.
Also, the enmity between the two largest political parties make people shove their political support publicly. A bold and a public announcement leads to all kinds of attacks.
A typical example are musicians and movie stars who declare their support for political parties during elections. A downward spiraling is seen in their careers after pledging their support to a party.
When the former coach of Asante Kotoko, Isaac Opeele Boateng, was tagged on social media to be a NDC person, he was forced to declare the party he supports in a tweet.
Other posts that allude to being tagged as an NDC person.
