Announcing the milestone on his Facebook wall, Samuel Apea-Danquah urged Ghanaians to support his political party to transform the nation.

He noted that it was time to increase the party’s efforts in mobilising grassroots support for the party and narrowing down on the youth.

He said the party's work in the past two years of mobilisation had placed in pole position to win the upcoming 2024 elections.

Apea-Danquah expressed his heartfelt gratitude to those who have supported his dream and have assured the party’s commitment to rescue Ghana from its predicament.

He also extended an open invitation to citizens of legal age interested in occupying positions within the party and those willing to run for parliamentary seats via his party to reach out and apply.

He said interested persons should register via the party’s website (www.yellowghana.com) and be automatically added to their constituency’s WhatsApp group where meetings would be held.

Yellow Ghana launches manifesto

Meanwhile, Yellow Ghana has launched its 330-page manifesto.

Samuel Apea-Danquah believes his message will transform the country if elected into office.

In an interview with YEN.com.gh, Samuel Apea-Danquah said Yellow Ghana, through its manifesto, is seeking to offer what both the NPP and NDC have failed to deliver.

"Genuine transformation and accountability," he said.

He noted that the party's main focus is to reform the country's tax system to make it fairer, expand its reach, reduce the burden on Ghanaians, and increase the country's domestic revenue.

"This will significantly reduce the cost of goods and services nationwide, while ensuring Ghana becomes a financially self-sufficient nation," he said.
"My goal is also to combat corruption with stringent measures, reform our welfare policies, invest heavily in infrastructure, and implement sound economic policies to control inflation." he added.

Yellow Ghana’s slogan is “Freedom, Justice and Prosperity”.
