Mark Okraku-Mantey, Showbiz personality who is contending for the position of Deputy Minister for Tourism, Culture and Arts has received some opposition from his own friends. and industry leaders. However, he is even more shocked that his own friend and brother, Ola Michaels is opposing his appointment.
“The one that I saw (opposing the campaigns) and I was surprised is Ola Michael who said I’m not fit for the deputy ministerial position because I haven’t delivered at the Creative Arts Council. [Do] you know why I’m surprised? Because we eat together and we do a lot together but it is nothing. When I saw a shot (of his comment), I said it is all good because Ola is one person we did a lot of things with at the council and he knows, so if he says the council didn’t do anything, I’m wondering if the bill wasn’t passed.
“But as you take the leadership space, you should train yourself to see a lot of Judases around you. People you roll with will disagree with you and it is part of leadership. You must accept them and see them as another side of motivating you. And also realize that people are watching you to do the right to change the narrative,” Mark Okraku-Mantey stated.
Although Mark seems to be in the lead for the position, personalities such a Shatta Wale have passed comments of disapproval. Mark has however developed thick skin and feels that opposition is an essential aspect of leadership.
