Michael Blankson, a Ghanaian international comedian, has been urged to form a political party to become Ghana’s next President.
Some youths of the country believe the comedian, being an international figure, understands and knows how to tackle issues with his understanding of governance in the US.
A certain netizen is urging him to form a political party or run as an independent candidate 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.
This comes after the Hollywood star extended his charitable deeds to his community in the Central Region, Agona Nsabaa, by constructing a basic school that will be free to all.
However, 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 issues in different parts of the country and what each has or not, so it would be a bad decision to jump on the idea.
“Ghana I appreciate this but not right now, I don’t even know all the 16 regions in Ghana lol,” he wrote.
