A Presidential hopeful of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Kojo Opoku Nsafoah says Ghana’s economic difficulties could be resolved if reforms were made to address the challenges facing both the local government and educational sector.

He said this when he joined other Presidential hopefuls of the party to pick nomination forms at the party’s head quarters yesterday in Accra.

According to him, the country has not given the needed attention to transform the local government as well as the educational sector especially early child hood education.

He said he will make these and many other challenges a priority when elected as the flag bearer of the party and subsequently become the President of Ghana.

“As part of my plans, I will ensure that early child hood education become a key part of my agenda to put in place strategic reforms that will improve learning outcome.

He said though, he has not held any position in government as a Minister neither has he occupied any position at the constituency  level, he was a qualified to contest as member in good standing and known by the grass root members of the party.

He asked Ghanaians not to be moved by the popularity of other Presidential hopefuls who have held some positions in the party and  already known by members of the party but should consider what he sought to do for the party and the country as a whole.
