Ghanaian-American actor, Michael Blackson wants to succeed President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo when his term ends in 2024.
On October 9, 2020, YEN.com.gh reported that Blackson had shared that he was building a school for the children in his village. That act he said was a prelude to his plan to contest for Ghana's highest office.
"I’m going to clean up my act and run for president of Ghana in 4 yrs. No joke I’m too passionate about my people" reads a tweet by Blackson.
"Who will vote for me? Let me know now so I won’t waste my time," Michael tweeted.
Kenneth Lee Lewis advised against the decision saying Blackson will be sabotaged: "They gonna do you like our dear brother & Malcom X, save your time & energy bro. This world doesn’t appreciate the heroic effort, of real African leaders now"
King Faisel think it's a good idea: "You Will Be The Best President To Have To Put Jokes Aside You Will Improve The Country More Than The Corrupt Leaders We Have Today .U Got My Vote"
