Hon. Henry Quartey Wins Most Engaged Government Official In An Online Poll

0 53

In a recent online poll of 1,680 respondents, Greater Accra Regional Minister Henry Quartey emerged as the most engaged government official.

The Regional Minister received 68.51 percent of the vote, with 1,151 people out of 1,680 voting for him. Vice President Mahamudu Bawumia came in second with 471 votes, or 28.04 percent.

Ken Ofori Atta, the Finance Minister, received 58 votes, or 3.45% of the vote.

Even before the election, the Greater Accra Regional Minister, who is also the Member of Parliament for Ayawaso Central in the Greater Accra Region, had captured the hearts of many people both inside and outside the region.

His leadership in relocating onion merchants from Agbogbloshie to their current position at Adjen Kotoku in the Ga West District earned him national renown, even though all prior attempts had failed.

The onion merchants who first opposed their relocation to their current site have not stopped praising him now that they have seen the benefits of the move.

The ‘Let Accra Work’ and ‘Operation Clean Your Frontage’ campaigns have also received widespread support from both political parties.

Before starting his campaigns, the minister met with people on both sides of the political aisle, an approach that has led to his success and national renown.

Mr. Quartey meets with a small group of media professionals on a regular basis to discuss his regional agenda.

He held the deputy Interior Minister role until his appointment as Greater Accra Regional Minister, after which he was transferred to the National Security Ministry.

His win as the ‘Most Active Government Official’ did not surprise many who have followed the activities of government appointees. He is affectionately known as the ‘Gentle Giant’ by his many admirers.
