Independent film producer, OAP, and entertainment pundit Ola Michaels has expressed a strong opinion that Vice President Mahamudu Bawumia will not win the presidency in the 2024 general elections in Ghana.
He believes that the outcome of the 2024 polls will lead to Vice President Bawumia retiring from politics.
Ola Michaels discussed the political situation during an appearance on UTV’s Showbiz Night. He stated that the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) is directing major resources and support toward pushing Mr. Bawumia as their preferred presidential candidate, a move he termed as unjust.
Ola Michaels was concerned about the role of money in politics, which she referred to as “monecracy,” and believed it was harmful to democracy.
He contended that such methods could harm regular citizens and advocated for an end to the power of money in politics.
“We should stop this monecracy being introduced in politics, it’s a bad practice for democracy, and those who will suffer it are the people at the bottom”
“Just like my brother Kwaku said, a lot of people are suffering yet many are also filthy rich and you don’t know how they make the money. how can someone who had nothing back in 2016 now own a building in East Legon. These are people I meet and talk to, When I ask I am told his a consultant for the government, and within six months he owns an East Legon apartment.
Ola Michaels criticized what he perceived as silence and reluctance to address certain issues within the NPP.
“We are all in this country and quiet for the bad things the NPP is doing, It’s like people are scared to talk but when it was Mr. Mahama he was castigated without measure
“Those in support of Kennedy, they know his weakness that when you push him too hard you get his emotions out of him and they are going to do that. everything to get Bawumia to win but Insha Allahu with all the money they push behind Bawumia, he will still not win in 2024 and that will be his retirement”
It’s important to note that political opinions can vary widely, and the outcome of elections is determined by voters’ choices and the political landscape at the time of the election.
