The banker and economist posited that he remain “the right leader at the right time” to lead the largest opposition party to power and turn around the country’s economy.

According to him, his “research and experience-based assertion” that though the economy has been plunged into a very bad shape by the New Patriotic Party (NPP) government, it is possible to revive and put it on the road to recovery.


“We have done it before in 2009 and we can do it again, we should be able to create more jobs,’’ he added.

He said his decision to put himself up for the election was to serve the collective interest of Ghanaians and help build a strong party with a focus on the grassroots.
