Ghanaian international comedian Michael Blankson has rejected calls to become Ghana’s next President.
The Hollywood star has recently extended his charitable deeds to his community in Central Region, Agona Nsabaa, by constructing a basic school that will be open to all for free.
On that note, some Ghanaian youths began urging him to form a political party and run in Ghana’s next general election (2024).
“Bro! Freaking start a political party or stand independent for next year’s election and can bet you can easily win cause the youth in Ghana want a young leader who understands what’s happening around the world and can help empower us to achieve our goals and you seem to be that guy. Just try and see. You would be surprised. We’d seriously vote for you. Hope this finds you,” a netizen wrote in the comedian’s DM on Twitter.
In response, Michael Blankson, who in 2022 revealed his desire to become Ghana’s president one day and fix the country, appreciated the advice but rejected it.
According to him, though he is from Ghana, he is still not familiar with the different parts of the country and what each has or not, so it would be a bad decision to jump on the idea now.
“Ghana I appreciate this but not right now, I don’t even know all the 16 regions in Ghana lol,” he wrote.
