“And why not, at the end of the day, he’s Ghanaian and he’s of the right age. Its really up to the voters in that constituency to vote for him. And John is funny, he’ll make people laugh.” the bubbly actress added
Citing former actor, Arnold Schwarzenegger as an example, the mother of one rubbished claims that an actor can not excel in politics.
” There are the likes of Arnold Schwarzenegger who was a governor of California and from what I was told he was very successful. I think people think that maybe when you’re an actor then it means you are not capable but that’s not true. So I wish him all the best.” She said
