The Chairman of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Freddie Blay, has called on other political parties to learn from them instead of criticising the business ventures of the governing party.
In an interview with Accra-based Joy FM, Mr Blay said that they are starting businesses to keep the Danquah-Busia-Dombo family viable and vibrant, especially at the grassroots level.

Critics say he used the buses to get more votes since they arrived just in time ahead of the NPP’s recently-held National Delegates’ Conference in Koforidua on Saturday, 7 July.
“We want to generate revenue for the party and we want to encourage them; it’s not a dash, it’s to be used to work for money to be made to help the party. It might not be the end.”
“As I told you, we are going into the hospitality industry [and] a few other things that we are thinking about,” he added.
Mr Blay said the opposition parties should rather emulate them instead of criticising the industriousness.
“I would rather suggest that other political parties do the same. The class of politicians that we are, we should not give the impression that we only get money when we are in power, we shouldn’t give the impression that we only depend on government and find ways and means and people accept it that all politicians are corrupt,” he said.
