The founder and leader of the Movement for Change, Alan John Kwadwo Kyerematen, has called on Ghanaians not to vote on party lines but rather choose leaders based on their vision and integrity.
Mr. Kyerematen believes what Ghana needs most at the moment is a transformational leader rather than a new political party, the reason his Movement for Change seeks to mobilise the over 6 million floating voters who identify with his vision to transform Ghana.
He has advised Ghanaians to choose his Great Transformational Plan (GTP) ahead of anything NPP, NDC to propel Ghana to a greater heights.
What his Movement for Change seeks to do, according to him, is to form a unionised government and engage stakeholders across board to bring his transformational agenda to fruition for the benefit of the youth.
He noted most of his ministers would be youth which will see a balanced gender.
“We are in a period of transformation”, he said adding that “Ghana is about to experience the next major change after Ghana’s political independence in 1957,” he said on Kumasi-based Angel FM.
The former Trade and Industry Minister said his proposed GTP hinges on 15 thematic areas whose pillars include a stable economy, industrialization, agriculture, energy, Health and Education.
Mr. Kyerematen pointed to industrialization as the basis of his approach to job creation to match with advanced countries like America, China, Japan, Germany, France, South Korea and India that focused on industrialization to move their countries forward.
He, however, noted that the economy must at all times be strong to support industrialization and agriculture hence the need to promote industrialization through adequate funding.
The Movement for Change founder cited the “One District, One Factory (1D1F) policy as the greatest achievement to take Ghana to places.”
According to him, the Ashanti region benefited from 55 projects under the 1D1F programme with 26 being operational and 13 under construction.
He promised to make the Ashanti region, currently the commercial hub of Ghana, the manufacturing hub for Africa to grow the economy.
