Businessman Nana Kwame Bediako, popularly known as Freedom Jacob Caesar or Cheddar, has boldly promised to create a seaport in Kumasi should he become the president of Ghana.

Highlighting his extensive global travels and observations of other countries, the New Force founder stated that his vision was to turn Kumasi into a modern city by opening up business opportunities.

One of the ways he sought to do this was to expand maritime networks inland to increase the transportation of goods.

Drawing parallels to Dubai's transformation from desert to coastal city, Cheddar articulated his vision for the Ashanti Region, envisioning a future where dredging efforts would bring the sea closer to Kumasi, enabling ships to dock directly in the region.

“I have travelled far and wide. I have seen many countries do that. Even Dubai, which was a typical desert now has the sea. That is the kind of vision I have for the Ashanti Region. When we dredge the sea to the region, ships can dock in Kumasi,” he explained.
