Dr. Nduom Tells Kumawood Actor – Salinko – to Return His Nomination Form ‘Cos He’s Not Fit to Be An MP
This year’s general election will be one of the most entertaining elections ever to be held in the country as entertainers like Ebi Bright and Kwame Dzokoto have joined the political race.
Last week, Kumawood actor, Abraham Kofi Essuman Davis, popularly known in showbiz as Salinko expressed interest in becoming a parliamentarian, representing the people of Atwima Kwanwoma in the Ashanti region on the ticket of Progressive People’s Party (PPP).
The actor who shocked his constituents and fans for not knowing the name of his Party’s National Chairman has been asked by the founder of the political party, Dr. Paa Kwesi Nduom, to return his nomination form.
Speaking at the party’s headquarters in Accra Wednesday evening, Dr. Nduom said Salinko should concentrate on his acting career rather than forcing himself into politics. According to him, politics is for serious-minded people, not those who do not even know the names of their national chairmen.
“My attention has been drawn to a very serious issue going on in our party. I’ve been informed that Salinko has picked up a nomination form to contest for the Atwima Kwanwoma seat on the ticket of our highly reputable party, PPP. Let me please use this opportunity to advise him to return the form so he can concentrate on making people laugh through movies.”
“PPP is there for serious people and for Salinko not been able to mention the name of his National Chairman, it shows how unserious he is. Like I said, I would advise him to return the nomination form and focus on his movies. If he still wants to be a politician, I think he can join Akua Donkor’s Ghana Freedom Party (GFP), not my reputable PPP,” Dr. Nduom said.
