Yeah, judging by his victory speech, we are in for some positive change in this city…pretty hard to believe for this region that voted massively against the party in power. Still hope springs eternal….

Here’s the item as it appeared on the Ghana Web internet news service site:

And my comments:

1. Loved “open door policy”-I know one private sector association that would like to meet with him regarding exorbitant hikes in the business operating licenses despite assurances that rises would be “moderate”.

2. And as for “all-inclusive government” …hope this includes the citizenry.

3. Priorities sanitation and security…important yes in the light of recent incidents..but long term the focus must be on jobs, jobs and more jobs….which will mean fewer situations involving disaffected youth.

BUT OH TO READ THAT HE WOULD PUSH FOR THE UPGRADE OF THE STATUS OF KUMASI’S AIRPORT TO AN INTERNATIONAL ONE….IT’S BEEN A LONG TIME COMING SINCE THIS PROJECT HAS BEEN ON THE BOOKS…SO GOOD LUCK MR. MAYOR!

And oh the rhetoric….let’s see if there will be action behind the words…well, we won’t have to wait too long…we’re supposed to be seeing a different Kumasi in the next three months.

of course, I’ll keep you posted…

Conjecture….maybe Kumasi’s being a Millennium City will produce dividends more than just a new website

One thing for sure, I’ll be looking forward to attending the planned investment day in June or July…..
