Dr Prince Armah

The Executive Director of the National Council for Curriculum and Assessment (NaCCA), Dr Prince Hamid Armah has joined the New Patriotic Party (NPP) parliamentary race.

He is set to pick his nomination to contest the Kwesimintsim Constituency in the Western region Thursday.

An elated Dr. Armah said his decision to contest is borne out of his passion to inspire the youth and improve the living standards of the people in the constituency.

“On Thursday, February 6, I will formally enter the contest for the New Patriotic Party Primaries in the Kwesimintsim constituency. This decision is the culmination of prayer and introspection, engagement with various stakeholders and the agitation of my fellow party members in the constituency. 

“I am taking this step because I believe that Kwesimintsim has tremendous potential and that the right kind of leadership will unleash this potential, improve lives and give the next generation hope for a much better future.

A lecturer and a consummate academic, Dr Armah enters the fray of party politics knowing too well the rigours of the job and the controversies that could come with it.

“I am fully aware of the gravity of the challenge and the toll it will exact on me but it is not in my nature to run from challenges,” he stated.

Below is the full statement released by Dr Prince Armah:

On Thursday, February 6, 2020, I will formally enter the contest for the New Patriotic Party Primaries in the Kwesimintsim constituency.

This decision is the culmination of prayer and introspection, engagement with various stakeholders and the agitation of my fellow party members in the constituency. 

I am taking this step because I believe that Kwesimintsim has tremendous potential and that the right kind of leadership will unleash this potential, improve lives and give the next generation hope for a much better future.

I am fully aware of the gravity of the challenge and the toll it will exact on me but it is not in my nature to run from challenges. 

Politics can – and indeed should – be the vehicle through which we deliver the massive change that our country needs. In my travels, I have seen how a nation’s best and brightest can, driven by patriotism rather than personal interest, can make lives better for all their people.

I think Ghana has the people, the resources and the potential to do the same for it’s people. And I think those of us who have been lucky to gain education, experience and expertise should place ourselves at the disposal of the nation and for the benefit of the especially the next generation. 

Kwesimintsim and indeed this country will be well served if more of its young people take up the challenge of building it. Today, I join the many thousands of patriots who have given their all to this country, that the rest of us may have a better life. May success crown our efforts. 

God bless NPP
God bless Kwesimintsim
God bless Ghana
