Actress Bibi Bright says she is appalled at the turn of events following an interview she granted. According to her, she has been misconstrued to the very latter and she finds that sickening.
According to her, what she said about not getting a dime from the ruling NPP is so true and she would say it over and over again because she did not get into politics for material gains and her campaign for the party was a selfless one. She adds that following the interview, the media have taken her out of context making it seem like she is one bitter woman waiting to receive something as a token of appreciation from the party.
She wrote; “I didn’t go into politics with a heart and a head full of what I would gain materially. I have in so many ways been acknowledged for my part played in supporting the NPP. I am the administrator and executive secretary of the CREATIVE ARTS COUNCIL, a position I appreciate because I can use my voice, passion, efforts and putting in the hard work in decision making that will be to the benefit of the industry I am a part of and ultimately to the benefit of Ghana. “

I campaigned for New patriotic party in 2016 because i believed in the visions of His excellency, Nana Addo Dankwah Akuffo Addo, for the people of Ghana and I like I said in the interview that I will do it over again. I granted an interview which was aired last saturday and i woke up to read some twisted headlines and articles flying around the place. Totally misconstrued Yes i did say i have not received any money from the NPP. Like i said in the interview, It was a selfless campaign with a vision and i will affiliate myself and support any party i believe has a progressive vision for Ghanaians, as NPP does. I didn’t go into politics with a heart and a head full of what i would gain materially. I have in so many ways been acknowledged for my part played in supporting the NPP. I am the administrator and executive secretary of the CREATIVE ARTS COUNCIL, a position i appreciate because i can use my voice, passion, efforts and putting in the hardwork in decision making that will be to the benefit of an industry i am a part of and ultimately to the benefit of Ghana. It is very unfortunate that the tv show hosted by Mzgee edited my full interview leaving a said part only, that will draw traffic. Like i said in the interview and i quote “my reward for the 2016 campaign is when i see children benefit from free SHS programs or for my sister who happens to be a nurse receive her nursing allowance. My reward is when i see social interventions from the NPP party”……. and this was all edited out of the broadcasted interview. I am also shocked at how the headlines and stories have been twisted to make it look and seem like i am a bitter person complaining and criticizing the NPP for selfish reasons. Ignore these stories. I am still hopeful that the president and his government will continue to do the best for Ghanaians. Signed BiBi Bright
