Presidential candidate hopeful for the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Dr. Owusu Afriyie Akoto, has promised to serve the country even if it costs him an arm and a leg.
The former Food and Agriculture Minister disputed assertions that he is an arrogant person.
According to him, he is passionate about seeing the economy grow and will not relent on his efforts in serving Ghana.
He made their remarks while addressing a gathering at the University of Professioanl Studies (UPSA) when he spoke on the economy.
He noted that his level of confidence is usually misconstrued as being arrogant.
“I’m passionate to serve my mother Ghana with all that is within me even if it costs me an arm and a leg. For those who know me, I’m known to be confident, very passionate and have very strong views on many subjects. Frequently I have been often being perceived as arrogant and too serious, but that is far from the reality. In fact, I’m a very friendly person, very open,” he stated.
“I’m moved by the immense support that I have received so far, ever since I announced my intentions to contest the flagbearership race of the NPP. I never knew there were so many people who have quietly followed my political progress over the years and continue to believe in me” Dr. Afriyie Akoto,
