Kofi was raised in a family that was proud of Ghana by parents who had great hopes for the future prosperity of the country and their children. His parents were both raised in the Eastern Region in the town of Akropong Akuapim, where hard work and tradition was prized by its people. Most of the towns people of Akropong Akuapim worked long hours harvesting snails and producing palm oil.

The town of Akropong Akuapim, home to the Adowa dance and the Odwira festival, instilled in Kofi’s parents a love and respect for the history of their nation. Elizabeth and Reynolds came of age in a time of great change during the independence of Ghana. A time that offered a new promise of freedom, opportunity, prosperity and personal happiness for all Ghanaians.

Kofi Koranteng is running as an Independent candidate for President in 2020 because he fears for the future of our Nation. He believes that it is time to take back our country from the entrenched corrupt politicians.

He is not a career politician. He is an entrepreneur who understands how sound business decisions and capital infusions lead to successful ventures. Dismayed by the powers that have taken over the government of Ghana for personal gain, Kofi has spoken out and fought them to do the right thing for the people of Ghana.

The wait is over, the future is now. Understanding that the country cannot change under the current two-party structure, Kofi Koranteng is casting aside his personal endeavors to run for President of Ghana as an independent representative of the people in Election 2020 guided by the Platform of Agenda 2020.

Children are the great blessing that springs from the commitment of love between husband and wife. Together with his wife, Kofi enjoys the blessings of their two children who remind them that their obligation to grow and prosper are the humble duty of loving parents.

As a Father supported by the love of his wife, a husband learns to be a teacher, an inspiration, a counselor, a guide, and also a laborer ready to dig in the garden, make home repairs, even cook pancakes to allow the children to grow and prosper.

Finding a soulmate in the love of a wife is one of life’s greatest blessings. Kofi has enjoyed the love and bond of a wife that provides hope in times of doubt, strength in times of adversity, perspective during moments of surrender and support in dreams of the future. The fountain of love that springs from the soul of his wife washes over the trials and tribulations of parenthood, offering a comforting refuge for the Family.

As the CEO of Progressive Alliance Movement, Mr. Koranteng and his team fought the Electoral Commission to implement voting rights for Ghanaians Living Abroad (GLAs). They challenged their failure to implement the Representation of the Peoples Amendment Act (ROPAA) by charging them in the Accra High Court with failure to act with due diligence on behalf of Ghana’s citizens.

He is a dedicated fighter for human rights, fighting complex housing issues that affected Ghanaians living in the US. His commitment to the current Presidential campaign is a culmination of his steadfast beliefs that Ghana is a Nation destined for greatness held hostage by corruption, bribery, and the quest for limitless power at the expense of the people by the current ruling class and their special interest parties the NDC and NPP.
