Ningo Prampram Member of Parliament, Sam Nartey George has described the Communications Director of the governing New Patriotic Party, Yaw Buaben Asamoa as a great mentor who impacted his life positively.
Showing his admiration for Buaben Asamoa and how privileged he was to work under him, Sam George said he learnt a lot from the NPP Communications Director.
According to Mr. George, he still has huge respect for the lawyer devoid of their political differences.
“I had the opportunity to serve under quite a number of people and it’s one of the reasons why until today I still have a huge amount of respect for Buaben Asamoah. I may disagree with him on several issues but when it comes to workspace experience I learnt a lot from Yaw Buaben Asamoah,” he said.
The Ningo Prampram MP worked under Buaben Asamoa during his national service days at the Office of the late Vice President, Alhaji Aliu Mahama.
According to Sam George, lawyer Buaben Asamoa was his first real boss whom he learnt a lot from.
He described Buaben Asamoa as an ethical person who doesn’t joke with his work and always made sure the job is done right.
Due to the training he got from the NPP Communications Director, his style of leadership was influenced and that has helped him shape the lives of people working under him too.
“In fact, he was actually my first real boss. I learnt work ethics…We worked long hours and not necessarily 8 to 5; you needed to get the job done. He gives timelines when you’re assigned to work on a project and any delay gets him angry because he also has to report to his boss…and it’s one of the reasons why for me I respect him.”
He added that “today if you ask the boys who work for me in my constituency, they will tell you. When I give you a job, I give you the terms and references for what it is. I won’t give you something I Sam George can’t do. So when you joke with the work I give you, I’ll do it myself.”
Sam George further reiterated that though he has great admiration for him, politically their differences will always remain.
“Administratively, I learnt a lot from him, politically it’s a different discussion we can have. For me, I learnt a lot from him as my boss but when it comes to politics, people at times put away everything that they professionally know to serve a partisan parochial interest,” he disclosed.
