I’m ready to serve in the next NDC government because I’m of age– says Rex Omar

Ghanaian musician and politician, Rex Omar, has expressed his willingness to accede a political position if he is given the opportunity.


Rex Omar, a staunch member of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), explained that he would gladly accept the appointment if the task falls within his ambit in a recent interview with Joy FM. 

“I will [accept a political appointment] because now I think I am of age and I think if I am given any appointment that is within my capacity, I will be able to contribute positively to the development of this country,” he said. 

Asked if he would want to hold a position at the Ministry of Tourism, Arts and Culture, he answered that "when we get to that road, we will cross it because at the end of the day all these positions are political appointments and so long as you are smart and intelligent and you know what is going on in this country, wherever they put you, you can deliver if you really want to."

Expressing his opinion on the state of Ghana's democracy, the 'Abiba' hitmaker said governance of the country will be better if the term for the presidency is reviewed to six years. 

He said the current 4-year term is not enough for any government to make a meaningful impact on the economy. (Read I don’t believe in flashy weddings, love is the ultimate– Broda Shaggi)

“Because America does elections every four years, we also jump on the bandwagon but the question is, America’s democracy is over 200 years. We just started, okay. So look at our situation,” he said.

Rex Omar rose to prominence in 1989 with the Aware Pa album which also included the track, Wodofo Ne Hwan? Following this, in 1992 he formed Nakorex together with fellow highlife artistes Nat Brew (now Amandzeba) and Akosua Agyapong, the group's name being an acronym made up of the first letters of each member's name.

He later pursued a solo career, released great albums, performed in and outside Ghana, won a number of awards and earned nomination in Kora Awards in 2004.
