Kumawood actor and comedian, Abraham Kofi Davies aka Salinko has revealed that he is vying to be a Member of Parliament on the ticket of the Progressive People Party (PPP) because of his love for the flagbearer of the party Dr Paa Kwesi Nduom.
The actor recently picked his forms to contest for the PPP’s Parliamentary Primaries at Atwima Kwawoma Constituency in Ashanti Region.
Speaking to KMJ on Daybreak Hitz (Showbiz Review) on Hitz FM, Salinko said he has been a fan of Dr Nduom since childhood.
He said “being a good patriotic person, I followed Dr. Nduom since the 4th Republic of Ghana, even though he has lost elections several times, he still pays his dues to the country and I have loved him since my infancy and now I have the chance to stand for him as an MP”.
The comedian admitted that he did not have enough idea of how parliament operates but promised to learn on the job saying “When you go to Rome, you do what the romans do.”
He disclosed that, the people in his constituency were happy with news of his intention to run for parliament.
The actor promised to develop his constituency as well as his community and above all be a leader of peace if he makes it to parliament.
Posters of Salinko eying a seat in parliament on the ticket of the PPP have gone viral on social media.
