What are you talking about, President Mahama’s seat. Anybody can stand and everybody can stand, provided you have what it takes so in the capacity, you can say that.”
According to Samini, his presidential ambition is for 2026. Asked on which political party’s ticket he will be contesting, Samini said “When it gets there, I will know whose flag to bear. Yea, when it gets there.”
He added, “Definitely you would have to go on the ticket of a political party. You gotto build your political career to the top. You gotto serve the state and in that you gonna know whose policies fall within yours and whose dreams you share and you gonna move towards that direction.
