Barely a week after receiving its Provisional Party Certificate, Yellow Ghana, a new political party, has elected substantive regional chairpersons and their deputies to steer the affairs of the party at the grassroots level in time for the 2024 presidential and parliamentary elections.

In a statement issued and signed by the party’s interim Public Relations Director, Edwin Yeboah Takyi on June 3, the party said, “The election for these crucial positions was held on Sunday, 2nd June 2024, across all regions.

“On behalf of the party founder, Samuel Apea-Danquah, and the interim executives, I would like to say congratulations to all those who won in their various regions. We can’t wait to begin working with you in implementing the vision of Yellow Ghana. Kindly ensure that you continuously cooperate with each other to ensure that the vision of Yellow Ghana and its values spread across each and every region and constituency” the statement noted.

With its motto, Freedom, Justice, and Prosperity, the dynamic political movement committed to finding lasting solutions to the myriad challenges facing the nation, has been officially recognised by Ghana’s Electoral Commission.

Founded in October 2020, Yellow Ghana, whose ultimate aim is to unite the African continent into a seamless and borderless economy, received its provisional certificate from the Commission on May 30th, 2024 in Accra.

This was achieved under section 8 (2) of the Political Parties Act 2000 (ACT 574), which permits Yellow Ghana to mobilise itself as a political party in compliance with the country’s electoral laws, based on which it will receive the full certification.

Independent Presidential aspirant and interim leader of Yellow Ghana, Samuel Apea-Danquah, told the media that “the process effectively makes us a political party and allows us to rally like-minded Ghanaians from all over the country. We have now transitioned from Yellow Ghana – the movement to Yellow Ghana – the political party.”

He expressed his heartfelt gratitude to all those who contributed to this achievement and pledged to work with all members, executives, and citizens to improve Ghana for everyone, not just a select few.

He also extended an open invitation to any citizen with a sincere interest in occupying positions within the party, including parliamentary roles, to reach out and apply. Yellow Ghana remains dedicated to creating a brighter future for all Ghanaians through leadership, equality, and prosperity.

Colours and Symbolism: A Beacon of Hope

Adorned with the colour yellow and symbolised by a black anchor, Yellow Ghana firmly believes in Ghana’s potential to achieve greatness.

Its distinctive yellow represents the core values it holds dear: optimism, hope, youth, and boundless energy. It encapsulates its unwavering belief in a brighter future for Ghana and Africa as a whole. Complementing this is its symbol, a black anchor, signifying stability, strength, and the unyielding endurance required to navigate through challenges.

A Manifesto for Progress

Mr Samuel Apea-Danquah’s comprehensive 330-page manifesto outlines a transformative plan to revolutionize Ghana through common-sense reforms and full digitalization of the Ghanaian economy.

The manifesto includes initiatives to drive development and create wealth through a revolution in jobs, technology, and infrastructure. It covers critical areas such as governance, justice, labour, social welfare, education, land and natural resources, finance, procurement, commerce, human capital, safety and security, utilities, and infrastructure.

Speaking after the release of the manifesto, Mr Apea-Danquah said, “Inspired by the Parable of the Talents, I believe Ghana is our portion to nurture and develop, and we must account for our stewardship. I urge the youth of Ghana to join me in this transformative journey, taking inspiration from Dr Kwame Nkrumah, who, at 42 and with no prior government experience, led our nation to independence. It is time to save Ghana. It is possible to save Ghana, but it requires the support of every Ghanaian. Together, we can change the fortunes of our beloved country.”
