“His leadership experience in both industry and governance as astute, sagacious and a results-oriented person can be tracked from his roles at management level in top tier mining firm at age 23 in Gold Fields Ghana Ltd, his distinguished delivery of major transformational projects in the mining industry, and his creditably discharged oversight responsibility on the Board of a key state-owned enterprise in the mining sector; Ghana Integrated Iron & Steel Development Corporation (GIISDEC) as the Acting Board Chairman,” parts of the statement read.

The statement continued: “Hon Ntim Fordjour’s academic credentials as the only Mining Engineer in the 7th and 8th Parliament and higher qualifications in governance and economic policy make him the preferred candidate to represent Assinman in the development agenda of H.E Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo’s second term.”
