The New Patriotic Party (NPP) aspiring Member of Parliament for Ejisu, Lawyer John Ampontuah Kumah says his entry into politics is to show the youth that they can lead to bring change in the lives of others.
Speaking to the Ghanaian Observer Newspaper in Kumasi over the weekend, Lawyer Kumah said there was so much potential in the youth of this country and in particular those at the Ejisu constituency to start a transformation of their lives.
His task, he noted, was to provide the kind of leadership so that the youth of the town can believe in themselves and the capabilities God had given them.
The youthful aspirant pledged his commitment to leading efforts in lobbying for development in all sectors of the economy of Ejisu in Parliament when he gets the chance to represent the people after the December 7polls.
‘’My aim of seeking political office is to use my knowledge and experiences to partner the people of Ejius in charting our own development so that collectively our people will lead successful lives’’, the youthful NPP aspirant posited.
JOB CREATION EFFORTS:
Lawyer Kumah said having been at the helm of affairs as the Chief Executive of the National Entrepreneurial Initiatives Program (NEIP), he discovered that the youth could become world class when they get the opportunity to train.
He noted that many of the youth who were trained in various entrepreneurial skills programs had displayed competence and knowledge beyond compare.
Many others who needed start-up capital to begin projects of their choice had been able to access the same in both the presidential pitch program and also the NEIP support scheme.
The NPP government, Lawyer Kumah stressed, was committed to investing into the lives of the youth to make them resourceful to the point that they too can become owners of jobs to employ others.
‘’The second term mandate that Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo and the NPP are seeking for is to begin a vigorous transformational agenda where job creation would take center stage so that the youth and the unemployed would find gainful avenues to put their talents into good use’’, Lawyer Kumah calmly noted.
The NPP MP aspirant has however called for the support of residents at the Ejisu community to enable him win the upcoming parliamentary election in the area.
A win in the polls, he posited, would mean the start of a partnership between him and the people to bring development projects into the community of Ejisu.
‘’A win for me at the upcoming parliamentary election in Ejisu would mean the commitment of yourselves as well as mine to start a new project of seeking the proper development of this Ejisu constituency’’, Lawyer Kumah passionately stressed.
