LilWin will run as an independent candidate for the Afigya Kwabre South parliamentary seat.

Popular Kumawood actor Kwadwo Nkansah LilWin has declared his intention to run as an independent for the Afigya Kwabre South parliamentary seat in the Ashanti Region.

Liwin made the decision to enter politics after being persuaded to do so by the chiefs and traditional leaders of the area.

Liwin asserted in an interview with Okay FM that the Chiefs had contacted him the year before and encouraged him to run as an independent. He claims that the Chiefs pledged to help him and ensure his victory.

“I was in a situation where several elders approached me around October of last year. They stated that a discussion about my potential candidature as an independent candidate to become their MP had already taken place. They promised to put in a lot of effort to make sure I won the election.

“Mr. President,” my most recent movie, recently heightened their anxiety. After viewing the movie they came back and informed me that I had to run for office as an MP despite what they had discussed with my mother, my uncle Wofa Atta, and many other family members,” he said.

The well-known actor also disclosed that despite having no interest in running for office, local chiefs and leaders convinced him to do so by promising to be impartial in order to avoid alienating his supporters.

“Even though I initially said I was not interested, they persisted in pressuring me to run as an independent so I would not alienate any of my supporters—NPP, NDC, or CPP—and do so.

They also mentioned that I would be given an English tutor to help me communicate and express myself more effectively.

Liwin explained his plans for the region as follows:

“In our region, many of the youth face hardships stemming from drug and alcohol issues. So, I think if I come, I will focus on jobs. Because there are no jobs, they are engaging in all kinds of deviant behaviours.”
