It is the maxim that leaders in Africa are elected or appointed to be served by the citizenry and not the other way round.
But the Bono East Regional Minister, Mr. Kwesi Adu Gyan has proven that that maxim is personality specific and cannot apply to every leader.
Whilst en-route to monitor some rice farms in the Pru East District as part of efforts towards making the region the rice hub in the country, one of the pickups in the convoy got stuck in the mud.
After several failed attempts to get it out, Mr. Kwesi Adu Gyan, the Regional Minister jumped in and stayed in the mud to help the team get the truck out.
Two other government appointees, the Pru East District Chief Executive, Joshua Kwaku Abonkrah, and the Techiman North District Chief Executive, Peter Mensah also joined in pushing the truck out.
Leadership is indeed service to the people.
