Ghana’s High Commissioner to South Africa, George Ayisi Boateng says his priority will be to look out for the interest of members of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP), before other considerations.
He is convinced the only way to bolster the confidence of party members will be to satisfy them before other Ghanaians.
Addressing the NPP student wing, Tertiary Students’ Confederacy Network (TESCON) at the Kumasi Technical University over the weekend, he said the government is doing its best to create jobs for the youth.
“This government is doing its best to create job opportunities and me for instance, I told my people over there [that], it is because of NPP that I’m here, so the NPP man is my priority,” he said.
He said when the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) was in power, it was Kwesi Ahwoi who served the interest of the past government as the country’s South Africa High Commissioner.
“Now we are in power, so Ayisi-Boateng is here with you. My topmost priority is the problems of an NPP person before any other Ghanaian, take it or leave it,” he said.
He said he has been meeting the party’s youth groups since his appointment to speak to them about how to make use of the opportunities that will be provided by the government.
“If I had my way, every job opportunity that will come will go to a TESCON member before any other person,” he said.
“And I know my colleague appointees also have the same feeling except that because of IMF we cannot do anything now,” he added.
