An Independent Presidential Candidate Mr. George Twum-Barimah-Adu has pledge to be a servant and serve the good people of Ghana with efficient and effective leadership.
He underscored the need to exhibit a honesty, transparency, accountability, incorruptible, and respect leadership for the benefit of all Ghanaians. He stressed that using one’s position for the benefit of small group of family and friends is unaccessible and undemocratic. He encourages Leadership that focuses on today’s demands but plans for the future growth and development.

Mr. George Twum-Barimah made this known, when announcing his intention to contest as an Independent Presidential Candidate in the fourth coming 2024 general elections at Osu Presby in Accra.
“l am of the firm belief that the time has come, for us to seize our destiny to take the bull by the horns, and beat our own path to rapid development”.
According to him if Ghanaians give him nod as President of Ghana, he would ensure that no government entity sign contract or memorandum with any party without government review, input and approval.


Again, would cut down all unnecessary public expenditure, by operating within the constitutionally approved number of 19 Cabinet Ministers, with a total Ministerial count of 63.

Reviewing all key government policies and programs within the first 100 days of his government, with the view of; Re-imaging them; Re-defining them; and Re-purposing them to serve Ghanaians and be beneficial to the citizenry.
Instituting a cap on the value of state vehicles used by all government officials including SOE’s.
Suspend all government and SOE’s travels pending a review, unless essential travels carefully vetted to deliver value for money.
Mr. George Adu expressed his intention to sell all non-profitable state enterprises and, scrutinized Public Procurement and strictly reviewing contracts to guarantee value for money, while downsizing government as much as possible among other measures.
He however, pledged to institute a policy to ensure that District contracts that are not complicated and are to be executed by government through the MMDAs, are awarded to qualified youths who either live in the districts or hail from the district; with the condition that, unskilled workers who would execute the job must live in the district for at least three months.
“My government will fight the menace of galamsey without fear or favour, with enforcement of existing laws, passing new laws where necessary, tightening loopholes in existing laws, and providing alternative livelihoods such as: Carbon Credit harvesting and a legal Industrial Hemp industry to the youth in galamsey and other Ghanaians who want to venture into those areas”.
He pointed out that, whilst Foreign Direct Investments (FDI) is fashioned to attract and promote foreign investments in the country; DDI does the opposite, attracting anyone who lives in Ghana to invest their money in Ghana by creating jobs and producing products that uses raw materials sourced in Ghana.
He added that, businesses that qualify as DDI companies will enjoy lower tax regimes,
“This is my genuine pledge to you all: to serve you in honesty and dignity, that God may be glorified, and that Ghana and Ghanaians shall be truly free and enjoy the abundant resources the Good Lord has so generously bestowed upon us”.
