CU System
Ghana presidential candidate to promote CUs
ANUM APAPAM, Ghana (11/21/07)--A Ghana presidential candidate says he will promote credit unions as a way of easing poverty if he is elected president. The assertion by Hackman Owusu Agyeman of the New Patriot Party was in a speech read Saturday on his behalf by James Appiah, a member of his campaign team, at the first Annual General Meeting of the Anum Apapam Community Cooperative CU (Modern Ghana News Nov. 19). In the wake of the Second World War, citizens in European countries ravished by the war were able to reorganize their economic lives using the credit union system, and today many lead more fruitful lives because of its influence, Agyeman said. Joe Boadu, training officer of the Credit Union Association (CUA) of Ghana, called on attendees to save and invest in credit unions.
