Independent Prez aspirant congratulates Dr. Bawumia

Independent presidential aspirant Kwesi Amoafo-Yeboah has acknowledged that the presence of successful professionals in Ghana's politics is an indication of the changing phase of the whole political terrain.

In a congratulatory message to Dr Mahamudu Bawumia on his selection as the running mate to the Flagbearer of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) Nana Akufo-Addo, Amoafo-Yeboah noted that such a choice is a clear signal that the political terrain of our country is progressively changing where successful professionals from other fields of endeavours must play active roles in the frontline towards the transformation of this country.

"It is time those of us who had been sitting on the fence and complaining about the politics in this country realize that, that has not brought us any dividend .We therefore have to take active part in effecting all the changes we as professionals deem necessary for national development making Ghanaians aware that politics is not a do or die affair", he noted. According Mr. Amoafo-Yeboah, with the presence of such personalities who are self made and not reliant on political power or favours of Ghana's politics to succeed, this will greatly influence the way we as a nation do our politics changing the tag 'dirty politics' or 'politricks'.

"Indeed, I am looking forward to the time when Political debates will become an arena for level headed deliberations where real issues are dealt with, on basis of facts and figures and not rumours and insults", stated Mr. Amoafo-Yeboah
