The Director-General of the State Interest and Governance Authority (SIGA) Stephen Asamoah Boateng has called on Ghanaians to adopt an attitude and mentality that enhances national development. Mr. Asamoah Boateng explained that until Ghanaians re-orient themselves and directly position themselves towards helping the country grow, as is the case in Singapore, Ghana will continue to lag behind its peers.

He said this when he spoke on A1 Radio’s Day Break Upper East today, December 8, 2021. He was speaking about his interest in the National Chairmanship position of the NPP. He said the time is right for him to bring his experience gathered over the years to bear and lead the NPP to further heights.

Recounting his time as Minister for Information and National Orientation under Former President John Agyekum-Kufuor’s administration, Mr. Asamoah Boateng stated that the portfolio was important to help Ghanaians understand that development could be led by themselves.

“He [John Agyekum Kufuor] moved me to [Ministry of ] Information [and National Orientation] just before elections. The idea was that we needed national orientation. The problem with Ghana is our state of mind. If we can understand how things work, it is easier to implement. Because our mindset sometimes does not follow how the development of the nation is going that is why there are differences”.

“It was similar to Singapore. In Singapore, their orientation is very correct. Nobody will throw anything out of a moving car. They cannot even dare do it. They have been trained not to do so from infancy. That is the National Orientation he explained,” he explained.

Mr. Asamoah is expected to resign from his position as the Director-General of the State Interest and Governance Authority (SIGA) to enable him vie for the National Chairmanship slot.
