Popular Ghanaian actor cum radio personality George Nii Armah Quaye has expressed his political ambition to occupy a political high office in service to Ghana.

According to him, he would want to serve as the first gentleman of the land (president of the republic).

Speaking on Accra-based Joy FM, the Showbiz A to Z programme, host Kwame Dadzie asked if Quaye had political ambitions.

“I don’t know if it is political ambitions but if there is an opportunity to serve this country, I will not turn it down,” the movie and PR star answered.

Dadzie wondered if he would take up a post at the Ministry of Tourism, Arts and Culture (MoTAC) or Creative Arts Agency (CAA).

In response, Quaye intimated those offices pale in comparison with what he truly desires, the presidency.

He asked: “Why should I drink from a teacup when I can drink from the river? Make me president of the country.”
