Deputy Minister of Energy, Dr Mohammed Amin Adam has urged people from northern Ghana to assess leaders based on revolutionary projects such as those embarked upon by the New Patriotic Party (NPP) and not on “tokenist” interventions such as building schools and roads, appealing to Ghanaians in general to renew the mandate of President Akufo-Addo and the NPP.

The parliamentary candidate for the Karaga Constituency in the Northern Region described President Akufo-Addo as a transformational leader who has put in place long-lasting legacy projects for the total transformation of the country.

“We the people from the north of Ghana must judge our leaders not on “tokenist” interventions, but on revolutionary projects that can turn round our fortunes in a sustainable manner,” he argued.

“Every President,” he continued, “has done schools, some roads, drainage systems and some health facilities; but our President is doing more through unique and long lasting legacy projects that can transform generations, like linking the north and south with a railway system, leveraging our natural resources like Bauxite and Iron Ore to put our country’s development beyond aid, and a nationwide free senior high school program. This is why we must give President Akufo-Addo another 4 years to get these projects fully implemented,” he expatiate to the people of Karaga after celebrating Christmas with them.

He eulogised President Akufo-Addo as a determinedly bold leader who embarks upon projects that several other leaders shy away from due to high costs and longer durations which render such projects politically not expedient.

Dr Amin Adam was confident that he would win the Karaga Parliamentary seat so as to better serve the people of the constituency and help the President fully implement his policies and programmes.
