The Ashanti Regional Minister, Hon. Simon Osei-Mensah, has offered advice to a flagbearer aspirant of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Kennedy Agyapong, cautioning him against assuming that his wealth alone qualifies him to become the President of Ghana.
Mr Osei-Mensah used the examples of Bill Gates and Aliko Dangote to illustrate his point, emphasizing that Kennedy Agyapong’s wealth is not comparable to that of these two global billionaires.
Speaking to the media he sated that “he should remember that Bill Gate has money but is not the President of USA. Dangote is a rich man but he is not the President of Nigeria.”
Instead, he urged Kennedy Agyapong to utilize his resources to help the NPP win seats in the Central region, specifically Assin North, after the November 4th elections.
“After November 4th go and win the Assin North and Central region seats for the NPP so that we can see what he is capable of doing”, the Ashanti regional minister said.
