The Head of NPP’s Legal and Constitutional Committee, Prof Mike Ocquaye has shoved aside NDC’s propaganda towards the NPP, intimating that the party is rather focused on putting its programmes together on how to better manage the country when voted into power.
Prof. Ocquaye was reacting to comments by some leading members of the governing National Democratic Congress that the NPP cannot govern Ghana because it is even unable to put its own house in order.
He disclosed that the government under the NPP would be manned by the youth, who are being groomed by the party.
“Our youthful, up and coming people who are going to be ministers, not people of my category anymore. They are there. We are screening them, we are normalizing them…
“We want competent men and women, who when they go (to) abroad to negotiate for Ghana, people will give them real regard.”
He shared an experience whilst in China negotiating for the construction of the Bui Dam and how his side wowed their Chinese counterparts.
“I believe they were so impressed with the delegation that they came to announce they will continue with us in the afternoon. When we came, the leader of the delegation had been demoted to number three… ”
He noted that the person in question was the second highest person in the Chinese Communist party at the time.
This was because the Chinese conceded that the delegation from Ghana was serious which helped in facilitating the negotiation, he claimed.
This is what the NPP is preparing for, Prof. Mike Ocquaye asserted.
