Queens celebrate former president John Agyekum Diawuo Kufour

Ex-President John Agyekum Kufour

A group by the name Queens, women advocating for good governance and aligned to the governing New Patriotic Party(NPP) has heaped praise on former president John Agyekum Kufour on the day of his eighty-third birthday.

According to the group, they are celebrating him for his role in the development of the country and for that matter women during his reign as president of the republic.

Below is the statement the group issued in Accra;  

We agree with you when you said our party should focus on electing a unifier, a leader who can bring us all together irrespective of our internal fractions. 

We celebrate a hero and a patriotic statesman today.

A leader who against all odds, charted a path for our country’s democracy and on whose shoulders our core tenets and tradition as a political party (NPP) rests.

Especially in implementing our principles and defining our ideologies as a center-right liberal democratic party. 

Ex-President Kufour had a vision for our beloved country.

He understood the importance of liberating the entire citizenry when he said “Never again should Ghanaians have to resort to dubious means to get to, or live in, foreign lands, simply to make a living” hence his focus on executing public policies which benefitted all Ghanaians. 

Ex-President Kufour’s reign as a leader influenced our economy greatly.

With his background as a conservative Liberal, one would have thought that he would consider private sector solutions for public services but on the contrary, he adopted a socialist approach where the government is charged with the responsibility for providing services and access to basic infrastructure and amenities to the citizenry. 

Ex-President Kufour created a blueprint for our country by controlling our fiscal discipline and tightening our monetary policy to attract donors and investors.

And this revamped our economy in the 2000s. 

As a leader of our beloved nation, Ex-President Kuffour promoted and developed a short and medium-term policy framework that captured the entire citizenry irrespective of their social groupings and backgrounds for economic transformation.

Key among these strategies include; health insurance, promotion of agro-processing and modernizing agriculture, the building of good and accessible roads, provision of energy, and building of model schools in each district and municipal.

Your excellency, as the entire country celebrates your birthday today, Queens: A women’s group which advocates for good governance and development equally want to join in and add our voice to re-echo your great strides and phenomenal exploits in protecting our party’s tradition and lineage.

We agree with you when you said our party should focus on electing a unifier, a leader who can bring us all together irrespective of our internal fractions. 

Your Excellency, we cherish you dearly, and we wish for more years of your life to enable us to tap into your impeccable knowledge and wisdom.

We pray the good Lord to bless and watch over your path. 

Happy Birthday Ex-Prez John Agyekum Diawuo Kufour
