- President Kufuor has encouraged youth in the country to emulate the entrepreneurial spirits of Jospong and co
- The Former President intimated that these individuals have excelled in their various fields and created wealth and employment which has given opportunity to hundreds of people
Former president John Agyekum Kufuor has urged Ghanaians and businessmen to learn from the CEO of Jospong Group of Companies, Dr Joseph Siaw Agyepong.
According to the former president even though the Zoomlion man is facing allegations of corruption he is one of the best examples of businessmen to emulate.
“Mr Agyepong organized and employed lots of people (to rid the country of filth) and now Zoomlion is a household name,” Mr Kufuor said at the inauguration of the Ghana Bank Job.
He opined that Mr Agyepong is simply an example of a successful entrepreneur.
“Saying this is not saying we are blind to some of the drawbacks, no! The law should be there to deal with people who really go astray. We are a nation or government of rule of law…but we are talking about the creativity of industry, wealth and employment,” he noted.
The Jospong Group of Companies is being investigated for inflating costs of some contracts it executed under the erstwhile John Dramani Mahama administration.
