Veteran actor Paa George has reveled that he together with other veteran actors and their families are surviving on the benevolence of former President John Dramani Mahama.
According to him, Mr. Mahama got to know about the poor state of living conditions of the veterans when he attended the funeral of actor and comedian Asonaba Kwaku Darko (Super OD) in early 2018.
He explained that although he has not set eyes on the former president nor been to his house, he, together with others get foodstuff and money every three months from Mr. Mahama.
“I didn’t come to do politics but Mahama is part of the reason I still have strength and good health. When OD died and we attended the funeral together. He saw how the elderly who used to be actors are struggling and have been providing for us every three months,” Paa George said in an interview on TV XYZ.
“We meet at Mr. Mensah’s house in Adabraka and then we are given rice, oil tin fish and money even now that he is not president. He takes care of me. I cannot deny. I haven’t met him. I don’t know his house but all the things come through Mr. Beautiful. So he takes care of us the elderly and the families of those who have died,” he added.
