Businessman and politician, Dr Papa Kwesi Nduom has described the month of April as one of the difficult months for him as an entrepreneur and his family.

His comments come on the back of last Saturday’s fire incident at the Coconut Grove Regency Hotel which destroyed several properties.

Earlier this month, a heavy downpour in Cape Coast accompanied by thunderstorm, ripped off the roofing of the Nduom Sports Stadium.

In a statement to express his appreciation to all those who sympathised with him during the Saturday fire, Dr Nduom said: "As far as my faith will take me, I give thanks to God. This has been one of the most difficult months for me as an entrepreneur ever and for my family.

"Still we stand ready to keep moving on, positively. We owe our ability to do this to many, many well-wishers from near and far who encourage us and support our enterprises. I am thankful for our loyal customers and business partners who have gone beyond their personal interests to stand by us no matter what."

Below is the full statement:

Tons of Gratitude, with a Heavy Heart.

As far as my faith will take me, I give thanks to God. This has been one of the most difficult months for me as an entrepreneur ever and for my family.

Still we stand ready to keep moving on, positively. We owe our ability to do this to many, many well-wishers from near and far who encourage us and support our enterprises. I am thankful for our loyal customers and business partners who have gone beyond their personal interests to stand by us no matter what.

We have an amazing team of management and staff. The teamwork they have demonstrated to ensure that the Regency Hotel fire challenge is overcome quickly has been wonderful to observe. They are living the Spiritual Guidance we teach all our employees:

2 Timothy 1:7

“For the Spirit God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us power, love and self-discipline.”

Jeremiah 29:11

“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”

I am grateful to government officials, friends, politicians from all political parties, religious leaders, business men and women and others for their encouragement and concerns.

I have a heavy heart because though accidents do happen, this fire should not have caused so much damage and destruction. We have a lot to do to reform our state institutions and attitude to working with urgency when we are confronted with problems. 

First Digital TV is back on air and ATV and BTA are broadcasting. The affected GN Bank and Gold Coast Fund Management branches will be open today for business next door. Our customers’ funds and data are safe. Our disaster recovery procedures have worked well. We are awake to the need to continuously take preventive measures to protect life and property.

Our Groupe Nduom spirit is well and alive.

I am grateful for the prayers, good wishes and encouragement. 

God bless all of us.

Dr. Papa Kwesi Nduom
