Ghana is notable for diverse amazing things. Not only is the country known for its large production of gold, its citizens are also quite amazing in terms of how far they’ve gone in impacting lives and making things happen.  The Ghana Most Influential Awards is an annual event organized by E.TV Ghana to recognize Ghanaians who have made great impact in terms of having the power to impact positively and effect change in their area of expertise in the Ghanaian society during the year under review.

The station, after giving the public the opportunity to nominate and submit names of individuals who they think influenced them positively, has finally released its final list of the Most Influential Personalities for the year 2014.

As expected, the list has in it some notable citizens like Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, the prominent politician who first ran for the Presidential seat in 2008 and 2012, under the New Patriotic Party (NPP), but was defeated on both occasions by the National Democratic (NDC) candidates John Atta Mills in 2008 and John Dramani Mahama in 2012.

The list also includes Martin Amidu and Prince Kofi Amoabeng. While the former was the Attorney-General and Minister for Justice from January 2011 until January 2012 the later is a Bososo-born business guru and founder of UT Ban. He is also a three times Ghana’s Most Respected CEO for 2008,2010 and 2012.
