Rex Omar, a Ghanaian musician and politician affiliated with the National Democratic Congress (NDC), has expressed his readiness to accept a political role if given the opportunity. During an interview on Joy FM’s Showbiz A-Z on Saturday, March 3, 2024, he stated his willingness to contribute positively to the country’s development within his capabilities.

“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 told the host Kwame Dadzie.

Commenting on Ghana’s democracy, Rex Omar proposed a review of the presidential term, suggesting that a six-year term would allow for more substantial government impact on the economy. He argued that the current four-year term is insufficient, especially considering the time required to establish a new government after elections.

“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.

“I would have wished if we can go six years in one term. Because if you are given six years you use one year or one and half years to set up your government. If four years, five years you are not able to do anything it means you can’t do anything. There is no need for you to go for a second term.

The whole situation is, look at our scenario. After election, the first year is now that the government is being formed, the appointments and all these things. By the time the government settles to actually start to roll out its programme, you are getting to two years,” he added.

Regarding the possibility of a position at the Ministry of Tourism, Arts, and Culture, he asserted that he would consider it along with any other role, emphasizing the importance of intelligence and awareness in fulfilling political appointments.

Rex Omar’s career in music dates back to 1989 when he gained recognition with the Aware Pa album, featuring the popular track “Wodofo Ne Hwan?” He later formed the group Nakorex in 1992 before pursuing a successful solo career. He has been active in advocating for the music industry and intellectual property rights administration, earning numerous awards and nominations, including recognition at the Kora Awards in 2004.
