Dr. Nana Kofi Amoah Apraku II, The omanhene of Odumase No.1 traditional council (USA), the Citizens of Odumase in the Brong Ahafo Region of Ghana, residing in Europe and USA are hereby expressing our appreciation and overwhelming support for the nomination of Nana Obiri Boahen, as Minister of state at the Ministry of Interior by HE President J.A. Kuffour, and subsequent approval by the Appointments Committee of Parliament.
Congratulations Nana! However, remember unlike your previous position (Regional Chairman of NPP), you are now a Minister of State for all Ghanaians irrespective of their believe, ethnicity, political affiliation and others.The value of progressive politics-solidarity, justice for all have never been more relevant; and their application never more in need in the modernisation of our country.It is a great privilege and more challenging to serve as a minister of state at the Ministry of Interior in this era of our history, however, every man is at his/her best when at his/her boldest. Therefore you will excel when you are bold enough with this toughest position in Government of Ghana in this era of modernisation of our politics and history.Nana, here you are at the crossroads: Party, Government, turning point in your political career, and above all Ghana and all its citizens.
Your service to mother Ghana will be measured not by just your efforts to serve group of people and their interest but to the whole nation and its citizens at the end of the day.
We pray to God almighty to guide and give you wisdom of King Solomon and boldness of David to excel in your service to Ghana-our beloved nation in a capacity as Minister of state at the Ministry of Interior.Do not forget the motto of old time Odumase Students Union: To serve and not to be served.
We support you in prayers and all your endeavour to deliver your best. Once again congratulations!
Long Live Ghana and God bless Ghana.
