The Paramount Chief of Suhum Traditional Area, Osabarimah Ayeh Kofi and his queenmother, Nana Yaa Sakyibea last Sunday called on the Chief Executive of Chocho Industries, Alhaji Mustapha Oti Boateng to commend him for emerging as the Best Entrepreneur for 2013.

The traditional rulers were accompanied by an entourage comprising about 40 people, as well as the MP for the area Fred Opare Ansah.

Alhaji Chocho, as he is popularly referred to, was adjudged the overall winner in the recent prestigious award ceremony, which rewards outstanding Ghanaian businessmen.

To the Suhum chief, the feat has brought great honour to the entire township, which should be highly applauded.

‘You have done the people of Suhum proud by winning this prestigious award, we salute you and we urge you to continue the good work.’

As a result, the Suhum traditional leader presented a rich ‘Kente’ cloth to the Chocho boss for his immense contribution to the development of the area through his regular Corporate Social Responsibility.

The Chocho Chief Executive, with close to 200 staff, added his voice to President Mahama’s campaign for made in Ghana goods, saying, ‘I am in total support of the president’s crusade for made in Ghana products.   When the product is genuine, you do less talking, the product will speak for itself.

‘Emerging as the overall winner has really humbled me and taught me that when you hard work, you will be recognized.

‘We are also convinced that whatever the whiteman can do, we can do it too. We only have to make sure what we put on the market will be of great benefit to the user.’

Alhahi Choco, together with Osabarima, appealed to government to complete the untarred stretch of road which they said affect productivity to a large extent.

Hon Ansah also commended the award winner for his efforts, and joined the Suhum chief and Alhaji to call for the completion of the road.

‘I see no point in constructing an overpass at Nkrumah Circle and neglect an uncompleted one close to Suhum. I prefer getting stuck in a traffic at Circle to the untarred stretch leading to Suhum where I could be attacked by robbers,’ said the MP.

He therefore threatened to lead a demonstration if nothing is done about the road after holding a press conference.
