Mr Hackman Kwame Owusu-Agyemang, a presidential aspirant of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), says he is the biggest single investor in the party.

Barely two months to the crucial special national delegates congress of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP),

“My commitment to the principles and ideals of the party led me to procure the first national head office at Kokomlemle and purchased the first car for our general secretary and sold my house at Ashaley Botwe, a suburb of Accra, to support the party.

“I put my house at Ridge at the disposal of the party as a clubhouse for social interaction. As one of the original three principal foundation members of the party, I have invested materially and financially in the party at great cost to my immediate family,” Mr Owusu-Agyemang said at Asamankese, barely two months to the crucial special national delegates congress of the Party.

This was when he was interacting with 10 constituency executive, polling station chairmen, ward officials, and opinion leaders from 22 out of the 28 constituencies in the Eastern Region as part of the first phase of his tour of the various zones, to campaign for support. 

Mr Owusu-Agyemang, who is one of the 19 presidential aspirants of the NPP, reiterated his pledge to form an all-inclusive bi-partisan national development think tank that would generate results-oriented ideas for the acceleration of Ghana's economic growth and ultimately reduce poverty.

According to the former Foreign Affairs Minister, the think tank would compose of individuals drawn from the government, the private sector, industry, academia, the youth, trade unions and across the political divide.

He said the think thank will brainstorm, troubleshoot and ensure that our agenda as a nation is home-grown with all political formations supporting it.”

Mr Owusu-Agyemang who is also the MP for New Juaben North, and formerly, Minister of Water Resources, Works and Housing, tagged within NPP cycles as the "Action Man, Proven and Tested," said the presidency of Hackman would strengthen the country's financial system for accelerated growth with "abundant and cheap credit."

"We will continue rebuilding the nation's economic and social infrastructure to support accelerated growth that puts cash into the pockets of the average worker," he told the cheering gathering.

He urged the delegates to assess him based on his track record as an individual, Member of Parliament, Minister of State, his international and local exposure and contribution to the development of the party and vote massively for him on December 22.

Mr Owusu-Agyemang said he had acquired enough experience both as a party man and on the global scale to deal with the challenges of Ghana.

He contended, "I believe that my credentials assume gargantuan proportions in this regard."
