One of the leading contenders in the New Patriotic Party's flagbearership race, Alan John Kyerematen saysgovernment must revisit the industrial based programme initiated by former President John Kufuor.
According to him: "Ghana cannot have it any other way but develop…and to do so through industrialisation and diversification of other sectors of productivity. This drive must begin from those with who we have entrusted our collective political will. We cannot go on thinking like borrowers."
Mr. Kyerematen made the remark Monday, at Danyame in the Ashanti Regional capital, Kumasi, while addressing a gathering of party faithful including Regional Executives and Members of Parliament, ahead of Sunday's super delegates' conference, which will see the seven candidates pruned to five for the national delegates' congress on October 18.
"Like I have mentioned before we have a country which indulges in too much talk but our propensity for NATO – no action, talk only – must taper off and give way to a spirited effort at all levels in the government and the private sector for more action towards national growth and prosperity."
He said in the name of such industrialisation efforts as the Presidential Special Initiatives- which represents the biggest drive yet, in Ghana's recent history, led by any government- was to vary Ghana's exports and expand its foreign exchange earners.
These projects were in the long term supposed to ease the country's over-dependence on cocoa and vastly improve foreign inflows to guard against certain economic difficulties; the like of which we find ourselves in today, he said.
He added that, this is only the harbinger of the capabilities of our country and the potential of its most valuable assets, the Ghanaian people.
Mr Alan John Kyerematen made an appeal to the party delegate and Ghanaian voters to look at his personal and professional qualities; to be informed by his demonstrated organisational and leadership qualities, and choose him to lead the NPP to win in 2016 and then to lead the country into greater heights of growth and development.
"The New Patriotic Party (NPP) seeks in two years to lead the country into that bright future we all desire. I am as of now seeking the delegates mandate to choose me to lead in the campaign to ask the good people of Ghana to bring the NPP into power once more.
“Because our party is all about bringing solutions to our economic crises; creating jobs, improving our education, health, energy supply and creating the basic comforts that Ghanaian's, like all others around the world, are entitled to and must be provided for by their elected government."
In accordance with Article 12 of the party's constitution, NPP-USA went to the polls to vote on candidates aspiring to lead the New Patriotic Party into 2016 elections.
