Fred Nuamah, a well-known Ghanaian actor, is vying for the National Democratic Party’s (NDC) ticket to represent Ayawaso West Wuogon in parliament. However, his candidacy has not been welcomed by everyone, as fellow Ghanaian socialite-turned-artist, Andrea Owusu, better known as Efia Odo, has publicly criticized him.
In an appearance on United Showbiz, Efia Odo was asked about her thoughts on Fred Nuamah and John Dumelo’s political campaigns.
She responded by expressing her opinion that Nuamah is not qualified for the position of representing Ayawaso West Wuogon. She went on to say that if Nuamah could not handle a simple award ceremony, she did not believe he could handle the responsibility of leading the people of Ayawaso.

While some may dismiss Efia Odo’s comments as merely an opinion, it does raise the question of what qualifications are necessary to become a successful politician. While charisma and public speaking skills are important, it takes more than just popularity to effectively represent a constituency in parliament.
Fred Nuamah’s candidacy is a sign of the changing face of politics in Ghana. More and more celebrities are getting involved in politics, using their fame and popularity to appeal to voters. However, it remains to be seen whether or not they have the necessary skills and experience to effectively lead their constituencies.
