THE Personal/Political Assistant to the Member of Parliament (MP) for Old Tafo/Pankrono, Mr J.K. Owusu-Boakye, has stated that the major strides being made by waste management giants, Zoomlion Ghana Limited, in the management of waste in the country has vindicated the government’s effort, at making the private sector the engine of growth.
He has consequently congratulated the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the company, Mr Joseph Siaw Agyapong, for effectively steering the company to greater heights, which had eventually caught the eyes of the international community as some African countries were seeking their services.
In a statement to the Daily Graphic in Kumasi, Mr Owusu-Boakye said as the government was eager to do more to push the private sector to deliver effectively, the future looked very bright for the nation.
Mr Owusu-Boakye said it was not for nothing that the New Patriotic Party (NPP) government, on assuming office in 2001, moved to support Ghanaian business people to develop their potential.
He said within a short span of three years, Zoomlion had become a successful business entity, which every Ghanaian was proud of.
Mr Owusu-Boakye said by its performance, the company had activated the essence of Golden Age of Business under the NPP government.
He said the CEO had demonstrated that given all the necessary support and encouragement, the Ghanaian could rise to the top in various fields of national development.
He stated that it was not surprising that Mr Agyapong was a proud recipient of national award at the recent national awards ceremony in Accra.
Mr Owusu-Boakye also commended Ambassador D.K. Osei, the Secretary to the President, for his dedicated services to the state, which resulted in his award at the National Awards Day.
He said the youth were looking for principled and dedicated people such as Mr Osei to learn from them, so that they could also grow to serve their nation better.
