"I am not in politics because I want to enrich myself which is a side issue but to help humanity, my political ambition is to be the ladder for my people to achieve their prosperity in what they do".
The Managing Director was speaking to his constituents, family and friends in the Afram Plains South during his 44th birthday celebration held at his residence at Ekye Amanfrom in the Afram Plains South Constituency last Monday.
The one time parliamentary candidate of the NPP in the 2016 elections asked how much he can spend on himself if he acquire all the worth in the word.
"How much will I spend on myself after acquiring all the worth, money, building mansions, buying luxurious cars, wearing expensive clothes, shoes among others" he asked.
He noted that "I believe in the proverb which say a good name is better than riches and that is what my life is all about, I wish to one day become one of the highest employers who brings happiness and smiles on the face of his employees in this country Ghana".
The Managing Director who is also the Chief Executive Officer of Willie Hor Pharmacy then disclosed the Former President of the United States of America His Excellency Barack Obama as the person he takes his inspirations from after he became President of the United States at age 44.
"I take inspirations from the Former President of the United States of America Barack Obama, he became the President of this great nation at the age 44, we all saw what he did to help his people and the world at large in his governance. I told myself at age 44, I should at least be able to put smiles on the face of my people by helping to employ most youth into good earning jobs and also supporting the needy and poor in the society" he stressed.
William Hor who is currently lacing his boots to stage a comeback to contest the 2020 parliamentary seat for the people of Afram Plains South on the ticket of the ruling New Patriotic Party added that "even though I have not been able to reach where I wish to be, I think I am on course leading to achieving my objectives as I have been able to help enrolled most of our youth into the security, education, health, giving out scholarships, paying of school fees of the brilliant but needy students who are not beneficiaries of the government's free Senior High School policy, supporting the poor and needy in our society and have also in my own little way employed some youth to manage my shops".
He then called on politicians to prioritise the welfare of the people around them rather than lust for money.
As part of his birthday celebration, William Hor visited the Forifori Prisons Camp in the District to donate some items to the inmates which includes medicine, shoes, second hand clothings, toothpaste and brush among other things to fulfil the biblical demand of caring for others in need, and also to encourage them to remain focus after serving their sentence since all is not lost.
Per the observations made at the Prison Camp which serves as the last camp for prisoners in the country who are left with some few months sentence to be released, the MD proposed that government should put up a fence wall around the prisons yard for safety sake and also to complete the workshop building which has been abandoned for years to help train the inmate on skill employment such as carpentry, welding, tailoring, hairdressing etc to keep them busy from involving themselves in any other things that will probably bring them back to prisons.
