Michael Blackson

Comedian Michael Blackson has called on qualified people to apply for the position of principal in his school located at Nsaba near Swedro in the Central Region.

In a post on Twitter, the popular comedian stated that the position comes with accommodation.

Michael Blackson noted that he was ready to pay double the amount the principal is being paid currently.

He called on his followers to spread the word to ensure qualified people get in touch with him.

In October, 2021, Michael Blackson announced on Instagram that he was planning to open a school in the village he grew up in.

In February, 2022, the comedian revealed that the school is expected to begin operations in September, 2022.

He told JoyNews’ Doreen Avio that he has been in Ghana more often in the past year because he wants to keep an eye on the construction – mostly to ensure the school reopens as planned.

“In fact, I got a bigger construction company to take over the project. I have a timeline. It has to be done within six months because in September, I want the kids to go to school,” Michael Blackson added.

Meanwhile, he has revealed that First Lady, Rebecca Akufo-Addo, has promised to be at the opening ceremony of the school.

According to him, the First Lady had told him during a meeting that she is proud of the work he was doing at Nsaba and excited about the opportunities the school presents to children there.

He said, “even though it is free for the kids, you pay for the teachers, this and that. She (First lady) was very proud of me and she says she wants to be there to cut the ribbon when the school opens.”
