New Patriotic Party (NPP) flagbearer hopeful, Alan Kwadwo Kyerematen, has said Gas will feature prominently in his government if he is elected president of Ghana in future.
Speaking to the Ga Mantse, King Tackie Teiko Tsuru II today, Monday, 13 March 2023 when he paid a courtesy call on the King, Mr Kyerematen lured the traditional leader to convince his subjects within the NPP to vote for him as the party’s next flagbearer.
“If it is God’s will that I lead this party and I become President, I’ll make sure that Gas feature very prominently in the government that I will run and I do so also for very strategic reasons because Greater Accra is the capital of our country and it is the entry point into our country and first impressions are important and, so, it is our own interest as a government to lift up the Ga state,” Mr Kyerematen stated.
According to him, the Ga state is important because it is the entry point into the country.
Mr Kyerematen told the chief: “In our party, our symbol is the elephant and we know that it is the symbol of the Ga State.”
“All Gas, naturally belong to the NPP and there is a spiritual connectivity between our symbols…”
“The role that the Ga community has played in bringing us to power must be appreciated by our party”, he noted.
He promised: “And, so, if it is God’s will that I lead this party and I become president, I will make sure that Ga’s feature very prominently in government.”
