Horrace Ekow Ewusi donates 23 computers to C/R NPP
An Industrialist and philanthropist has decided to inject what he described as modernity into the body politics by establishing ‘business’ centres in all 23 constituencies in the Central Region of the New Patriotic Party (NPP).
Mr Horrace Ekow Ewusi, told Graphic Online, when he donated 23 computers and accessories and 23 motor bikes to various constituencies that “we want to be independent of ourselves to enhance democracy.”
He said his vision was to ensure that the constituencies were ran as business entities with delegates as board of directors or trustees of the company.
“The idea to donate these items is to discourage a practice where delegates solely rely on Members of Parliament (MPs) and other government officials to function” he said.
Mr Ewusi, who is the aspiring Regional First Vice-Chairman of NPP, said “we want to make politics cleaner and more enjoyable. We don’t want to put pressure on the government any longer.”
The philantropist is of the view that the initiative, the first of its kind, would inspire the branches and the constituency delegates to spontaneously campaign in the 2020 elections because they were motivated.
Mr Ewusi used the occasion to commend President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, for fulfilling his policies aimed at improving the lives of Ghanaians, stressing “we are prepared to support the good cause.”
The NPP constituency chairman for Abura-Asebu-Kwamankese (AAK, Mr Phealias Kweku-Baah Ewudzie, who received the items on behalf of his colleagues, thanked Mr Ewusi for the gesture and expressed the hope that the items would greatly enhance work in the constituencies.
