The flagbearer aspirant of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP), Joe Ghartey, has observed that his desire to lead Ghana as President is not for personal gain but rather to be a blessing to Ghanaians, especially ordinary men, women and youth from all over the country.
The long-standing Essikado-Ketan Constituency Member of Parliament said this after filing his nomination form on Saturday, June 24, 2023, to contest the Presidential primaries of the NPP.
Addressing thousands of supporters at the party headquarters in Accra, the experienced politician and lawyer said politics is not about what one will get but rather about what one can do for humanity.
Mr. Ghartey, a man who is well known for his compassion and kindness, says leadership should be about “blessing people so God can bless you.”
He said he was not desperate to become the next President of Ghana but noted that if it’s the will of God, he will be the next President of Ghana.
“If it’s God’s will I will be the president of Ghana. I will not force things,” says Hon. Ghartey, a devoted Christian and a man who sees selfless service to mankind and God as a noble cause.
