Video: "I may be Ghana's 1st lady President"

Actress Yvonne

Ghanaian actress and film producer, Yvonne Nelson, has disclosed that she may consider playing an active role in politics and will not rule out the possibility of becoming the first female President of the country.

Ms Nelson, who is set to premiere her latest movie titled: ‘Fix Us’, told Natalia Andoh on Class91.3FM’s 'Touch of Class' that she is educating herself some more through a master's programme in preparation for the top job.

Responding to social media comments about her involvement in politics, the multiple award-winning actress said: “Maybe, I will, I will do some politics; it is 50-50, that is why I am back in school doing International Relations”.

Ms Nelson, who produced ‘Single and Married’ in 2012 and ‘House of Gold’ in 2013, articulated that she loves human rights and gender activism as well as tourism. For her, she would like to play an active role in the tourism sector and would not mind spearheading a tourism campaign.

Asked by the host if she was looking forward to being a Tourism Minister by 2028, she remarked: “I don’t know, maybe the President, you never know, the first female President of Ghana … God just is guiding me, so, I am taking it slowly”.

Pressed by the host to confirm her interest in the highest office of the land, Ms Nelson said: “Maybe, you never know, one day”.

“Fix Us’ premiers at the Silverbird Cinema on 6 December 2019.

The film has superstars such as Yvonne Okoro, Tobi from Big Brother Nigeria, Michelle Attoh, Hajia4real, Irene Logan and Prince David Osei.
