Politics has become a popular mantra in Ghana because it seems to be one of the avenues to get rich quick if only you are recognized by a political party— and you are lucky to be handed a leadership position.
Mere party communicators or what they term as Serial Callers are being paid; and most of them take home monthly salaries which are far more higher than what a hardworking Ghanaian earns at the end of the month.
It appears doing politics in Ghana has become so cheap that everybody wakes up to venture into it. And of course you don’t need any certificate to join.
Is joining politics the only way to help one’s community? A host of Ghanaian media personalities/entertainers have declared their intentions to venture into politics; in the name of helping their communities.
The latest to join the list is Jacqueline Akweley, the Second Runner Up in the 2011 edition of Ghana Most Beautiful, a Beauty Pageant show which aired on TV3.
“The 2nd Runner Up in the 2011 edition of TV3’s Ghana Most Beautiful pageant Jacqueline Akweley, is contesting the Ablekuma West Constituency seat of the ruling National Democratic Congress.
Akweley has made her intentions known, and has put in place the necessary behind-the-scene works..
Constituency executives have told Kasapafmonline.com her decision hasn’t come as a surprise to them.
“She’s been actively involved in the politics here,” a source said.
An ambition nursed over some years, she faces opposition from the incumbent Member of Parliament, Ursula Owusu, of the New Patriotic Party (NPP).”
