The star actress has never been shy to voice out her opinions when it comes to national issues.
In a series of Twitter posts, she said she was disappointed by the fact that the country had not seen any significant development since Ghana became free from colonial rule in 1957.
In her view, boycotting elections would send a strong message to politicians not to take citizens for granted.
“I am waiting for the day no one goes out to vote just to send a strong message across, because it’s been the same from 1957 to me.
“Cape Coast, Takoradi, Accra High Street look [the] same and even worse in some places. [I] don’t think seeing a KFC is development,” she tweeted.
The actress added: “As for Cape Coast, my heart breaks when I go there, the capital of the Gold Coast where tourists troop to, we should be ashamed.
“We need to stop spending so much money on these celebrations, they are pointless, the money can be used for development.”
It will be recalled that some years ago, Yvonne Nelson led a vigil to protest against the then National Democratic Congress (NDC) government when the country was experiencing erratic power supply.
