The popular vicar/inventor/philanthropist Apostle Dr. Kwadwo Safo has reportedly announced intentions to run for the 2016 presidential elections, a move that could see the head of Kristo Asafo Mission become Ghana’s first white president.
The announcement comes only a day after Guy Scott of Zambia became the first white democratic head of state in sub-Saharan Africa. Unlike Zambia’s Guy Scott whose parents were European immigrants, Apostle Safo is of full African parentage but somehow managed to acquire a lighter skin tone and jet black long flowing hair somewhere along the way. Explaining Apostle Safo’s apparent Caucasian look, a spokesman revealed that the inventor of Kantanka Onantefuo- Ghana’s first locally manufactured four wheel drive “acquired his white man look with a little help from dubious body lotions and hair relaxers.”
The man nicknamed ‘star of Africa,’ by his followers will however be campaigning not on the issue of race but the use of technology to uplift people from poverty. “Apostle Safo didn’t get the name ‘star of Africa’ because of shinny skin but because of his bright ideas and numerous technological feats,” said the spokesman.
