“Everybody had hope in the current president and leadership, and yet he has been a disaster.” Presidential Candidate George Twum-Barimah-Adu made this statement when he spoke to Mark Smith on A1 Radio’s Day Break Upper East Show.

Mr. Barimah-Adu was speaking about how the dashed hopes of Ghanaians in the current administration and the previous administration have paved the way for third-party candidates to become front-runners in the December 7 general election.

The Presidential Candidate added that young people have become more discerning because of the wealth of information available to them, and as such, have fallen out of love with the duopoly of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) and the New Patriotic Party (NPP).

When asked what makes him confident he will win the election despite the fact that other candidates outside of the NDC and NPP have performed poorly, Mr. Barimah-Adu, who has toured the country once before to garner support for his presidential bid, said, “I can tell when they are party people but are speaking as if they support you. I can tell from the questions they ask. I can tell from those who genuinely want to see a change. The question they ask is, ‘We want the change now, but who is it?'”

The Presidential candidate said he is the answer to the question that many Ghanaians have on their minds.

Mr. Barimah-Adu was born on August 18, 1963, as the third child of the late Frank Brako Adu Snr, a public servant, and the late Beatrice Mariam Ama Acheampong, a government school teacher.

He is the nephew of the late Kwaku Boateng Esq, a former government Minister in Dr. Kwame Nkrumah’s government. After attending various primary schools, he studied at Presbyterian Boys’ Secondary School (PRESEC, Legon) from 1975 to 1980. Mr. Barimah-Adu then pursued a bachelor’s degree in International Relations and a Master of Arts in International Studies at Florida International University (FIU), Miami, where he held several leadership positions.

Mr. Barimah-Adu returned to Ghana in 1993 and worked with the National Insurance Commission until 2000. In 2001, he became an Executive Director of Cypress Investments Limited until April 2023.

He authored the book “Behaviour Brings Success” in 2006 and developed several educational games, including the Road User Playing Cards and Nudu Board Game. Mr. Barimah-Adu is a practicing Christian, married to Winifred Twum-Barimah-Adu, and they have three children: Nana Afia, Kweku Nhyira, and Kwadwo Odoi.
