Prez Rawlings Was Very Instrumental In Our Win-Alan Kyeremteng Reveals.

The fomer president of the Republic of Ghana, His Excellency Flt. Jerry John Rawlings has involved himself in soo many affiars of the NPP over the years. As a former president, he has conspicuously been seen on various occasions with the incumbent president, Nana Akuffo Addo. His constant exposure and participation in the affairs of the NPP has made his own party members keep wondering what might have accounted for his active participation in the affairs of the NPP.

As a founder of the NDC party, many have queried his deafening silence towards the party’s activities. Even at the just ended Manifesto launch of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) , he was absent.

Speaking on Wontumi Tv earlier today, the Minister for Trade and Industry, Hon. Alan Kojo Kyremateng disclosed that, Ghana has achieved a great feat across Africa. According to him, the headquarters of the African Continental free Trade has been agreed upon to be situated in Ghana, after constant deliberations with other member countries. According to him, there were laid down criterias every African country who was contesting for a bid had to meet. From the ability to put up an ultra modern edifice for the director who will oversee the works of the African Continetal free Trade, among other things, Mr. Alan Kyeremanteng revealed that having the headquarters finally situated in Ghana wasn’t that easy.
He said it took the intervention of the President, Nana Akuffo Addo, and the two former presidents, Kuffuor and Rawlings who had to set in to convince leaders of the AU to agree on having the headquarters of the free Trade area to be situated in Accra. He said Mr Rawlings had to fly to the AU offices to constantly convince the leaders to consider Ghana.

Thanks to the influence of the two former presidents, Ghana can now sucessfully boast of having the headquarters of the free trade area situated here in Accra. Explaining what this free trade area agenda was about, the Hon. Minister revealed that, the initiative will enable African countries sell across Ghana without hustle. Thus, supposing an indigen produces soap, and then decides to transport to say South Africa, such a producer wouldn’t pay any taxes when he arrives in SA.
