Ghana’s Ambassador to South Africa says members of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) and its student wing, the Tertiary Students’ Confederacy Network (TESCON), are his priority in his dealings at his duty post.
George Ayisi Boateng explained that it is by dint of the hard work party loyalists put in that saw the party recapture power so it will be the right thing to do.
Addressing some TESCON members at a ceremony to usher in fresh students of Kumasi Technical University into the network over the weekend, he urged other government appointees to do same.
The Ambassador said it is important to ensure that party members are satisfied before other citizens.
“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.
“I told them when NDC was in power it was Kwesi Ahwoi who was there, 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.
“Indeed I’m not boasting, but I’ve started meeting the NPP groups. Every weekend I meet some group members and I tell you if I had my way, every job opportunity that will come will go to a TESCON member before any other person.
“And I know my colleague appointees also have the same feeling except that because of IMF we cannot do anything now…,” he added.
