K’si newspaper vendors chair wants Bawumia to assist Ibrahim Mahama

The chairman of the Ashanti Regional New Patriotic Party (NPP) Newspaper Vendors Association, Bismark Ayensu, has lauded the Vice President and NPP’s flagbearer, Dr. Mahamadu Bawumia, for his proposed private sector agenda to grow the economy.


Dr. Bawumia is on record to have declared his desire to facilitate private sector growth through incentives and reduce government expenditure.He said during his tour of the Ashanti region recently while  addressing professional bodies that his  government  would  give tax amnesty to all businesses  and introduce  flat tax system  as  part of major  reforms  to transform Ghana.


As a result of the flagbearer’s position, Mr. Ayensu has recommended for the consideration of Ibrahim Mahama, the Ghanaian businessman and founder of Engineers and Planners, a West African indigenous-owned mining company, to be involved in this private sector growth agenda.


The chief vendor also suggested  that the next  NPP administration under Dr Bawumia’s leadership must  assist Mr Mahama  to  grow his businesses  to enable  him  absorb  the youth in  employment.


According to him, the NPP must see Ibrahim Mahama first, as a Ghanaian capable of contributing to the growth of the economy and not a blood relation of NDC’s flagbearer, John Dramani Mahama.


Mr. Ayensu said Mr. Ibrahim Mahama owns several other businesses in Ghana, including Dzata Cement Limited and must be given the required push to help grow the economy and promote Corporate Ghana.


“It is time Ghana also encouraged businesses to grow and create the likes of Aliko Dangote locally”, he said.

Mr. Ayensu’s recommendation comes from his admiration for Ibrahim Mahama, as a role model who needs support to augment capacity to employ a sizable number of the unemployed youth and thus lessen the burden on the government.
