- Afia Schwarzenegger is known to tap the funny side of issues so it is not clear if she is serious
- The entertainer said she was moved by the grassroots of NDC to contest
Fresh off blasting Vice President Mahamudu Bawumia for what she says is the poor management of Ghana's economy, controversial Ghanaian entertainer Afia Schwarzenegger has in an Instagram spoken of her intention to contest for the presidency.
Afia Schwar, as she is known in abbreviation, is not one to hide her thoughts about politics. She has alsways confessed her admiration for former head of state, John Mahama.
Now, Schwar looks like she wants the top job for herself. She posted that she intends to inform the National Democratic Congress of her ambition to lead the party.
She wrote: After carefully listening to the grassroots,the people of this nation are wailing for a savior,this country needs a president that won’t be mislead
Therefore I have instructed my campaign team to submit a letter to the general secretary of National Democratic Congress confirming my decision to contest for the leadership of the party,with the clear view on victory in 2020 with the support of the intelligent thinking Youth of Ghana!
The old men are wasting our resources Becos they know they are dying,Arise the youth of this nation arise!!!!
As someone who is also famous for her comedic prowess, it is not quite clear if this statement is to be taken seriously. Another thing that we do not know is if she has attained the 40 years required by the Ghana constitution to contest the presidency.
YEN.com.gh will keep you posted on the details regarding Afia Schwar's ambition, if we can call it that.
