He commended the government for the support to Ghanaian businesses and the President's vision of moving Ghana beyond aid.

According to him, contrary to the general perception that private business men and women are only profit driven individuals who seek to enrich themselves, his company is founded on sound Christian principles and operates within the laws of the country.

"I say this with reverence to our Almighty God that First Sky Group since its inception to date has never been involved in any scandalous or corrupt practices that seek to short-change this nation. That is not to say we have not been exposed to such temptation but for the love of our nation, the fear of the Lord and our salvation has kept us away from such evil practices and we give all glory to God.

"Four years ago, during such similar occasion I made the same statement that we have a stainless record on corruption; this attracted the attention of one of the anti-corruption agencies in Ghana, and the revenue agency which investigated my company’s activities for five years, and thanks be to God, nothing untoward was found about us. We will continue to uphold sound Christian principles in all our business ventures and operate within the laws of the Republic of Ghana," he added.
