Former Trades and Industry Minister Alan Kyerematen has vowed to work closely with the leadership of the clergy if elected as the flagbearer of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) and eventually President of Ghana.
The noble gentleman made this pronouncement at a private breakfast meeting with the leaders of the Christian community in Accra on Tuesday.
Describing politics and religion as ‘two sides of the same coin’, at the meeting, Mr. Kyerematen said the bond between politics and religion is interwoven, adding that they are ‘two varied ways of leadership’.
“Both politics and religion revolve around leadership and followership, while politicians take care of the physical wellbeing of the people, the clergy takes care of their spiritual wellbeing,” he said.
He cited his Great Transformational Plan (GTP), recently launched in his national broadcast, as one of many prospects to steer the affairs of the nation to prosperity.
“When Ghana prospers, the people of Ghana will also prosper,” the former Trade and Industry Minister said.
He promised to continually exhibit humility and leadership of service to the people, which has always been his hallmark.
Mr. Kyerematen was accompanied by his wife, Patricia Christabel Kyerematen, and their two sons.
