“John Peter Amewu my brother, will succeed“. He said
Hon Joe Ghartey said he is sure people are wondering why a man whose mother is from Western Region and whose father is from Central Region and also who has ancestry to Greater Accra and the Ashanti Region will call a full blooded Voltarian his brother. Indeed he says he is a Voltarian choice but not by birth.
He made a statement about his early days when he used to visit his mother's brother, William Cornelius Daniels, who was working in Hohoe and he fell in love with the place, the people and the Volta Region in general. Where he stayed from 1983 to 1993 was with Phillip Kudji (Coujay), in the house at Hohoe behind the statue of General Kotoka, on the way to St Francis. We were with Lawrence Gborgblor (Family Man), Wisdom Akoto, Marlon Anipa, John’s older cousin Walter Amewu, Ativor and his brother Coujay and others.
He said to Hon John Peter Amewu that he remembers he attended his vetting with him in Parliament in 2006 when he was being vetted for Attorney General.
They have laid a strong foundation for NPP at its formation and today his brothers and sisters in Hohoe are still strong in NPP.
Is it not amazing that many years later he should serve in Cabinet with his brother John Peter who like him also hails from Hohoe.
“Is it not even more amazing that today John Peter Amewu is going to become the second Minister of Railways Development.“ Hon Joe Ghartey reiterated
He said when he became a Minister he went to church in Prampram and the Reverend Minister asked Madam Joyce Aryee to pray for him. She prayed for support from the President, patience from the people of Ghana and interest in the sector from investors. He said in his release that, he can say without any equivocation that her prayer for the four years he was in Office came to pass. He prays the same prayer for Hon John Peter Amewo. Today the railway sector is at the same place that the petroleum sector was, a few years ago. Your experience in your previous portfolios will stand you in good stead. My Brother, you will succeed to the glory of God, the people of Ghana and beyond.
