Mr Apkpaloo in his speech said “in the world today, when properly harnessed and utilized, human resource is the most important resource than all other natural resources. We have failed as a country because we have refused to invest in our people.”
He went on “while on the other hand, countries like Hong Kong, Israel and a lot to mention with very limited resources have been able to make economic and scientific leads, this is my vision for Ghana, we will make university education free.”
“My government will finance the world’s largest chocolate manufacturing company. It is my promise that after two years of my government, we will not export a single raw bean of cocoa out of this country. Its my promise to create 200,00 jobs in the cocoa industry,” he added.
