Ghana's High Commissioner to South Africa has said that the problems of members of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) will be his priority in South Africa before any other Ghanaian.
Mr George Ayisi-Boateng said he was appointed by the governing NPP and so its members will be his topmost priority.
“This government is doing its best to create job opportunities and me for instance, I told my people over there [that] it is because of NPP that I’m here so the NPP man is my priority. I told them when NDC was in power it was Kwesi Ahwoi who was there, now we are in power, so Ayisi-Boateng is here with you. My topmost priority is the problems of an NPP person before any other Ghanaian, take it or leave it,” he said.
Mr Ayisi-Boateng was speaking at a ceremony to usher in fresh students of Kumasi Technical University into the Tertiary Students Confederacy Network (TESCON) of the governing New Patriotic Party on Sunday, October 29, 2017 in Kumasi.
“Indeed I’m not boasting but I’ve started meeting the NPP groups. Every weekend I meet some group members and I tell you if I had my way, every job opportunity that will come will go to a TESCON member before any other person. And I know my colleague appointees also have the same feeling except that because of IMF we cannot do anything now…,” he added.
But his comments have not gone down well with many Ghanaians. Some have even asked him to resign.
TV show host, KSM, has also added his voice to the matter, describing Mr Ayisi Mensah’s comments as immature.
