A post on his official Facebook wall was released by the President of Ghana, Nana Addo-Danquah Akuffo-Addo, suggesting it to many as a way to mock former President John Mahama.

The statement published on Friday 8 January 2021 tried to recognize how exalted Ghanaians have conferred on him for the second term of office.

“I follow in the exalted footsteps of two of my predecessors, the 4th Republic’s 1st and 2nd Presidents, their Excellencies Jerry John Rawlings and John Agyekum Kufuor, who served two terms in office in succession…” the statement noted.

It could be considered that John Dramani Mahama was absent in the statement because of the name of the former president, and the fact that there was no observance Nana could identify from the footsteps of Mahama. It could be taken as a way to tease the former president. He also used the opportunity to thank the Almighty God and the people of Ghana for renewing his office mandate for another four years.

“Therefore, I cannot take lightly this honor and privilege bestowed upon my modest self, and I thank the Almighty God and the people of Ghana, who, by an emphatic margin, renewed my term of office for another four years in the elections of 7 December,” he concluded.

The Ghana Education Service has disclosed that 2020 School Placement will be released on February 3rd, 2021. The 2020 BECE School Placement is expected to create a new chapter in the education of BECE graduates.

The release of the placement status will offer BECE graduates an opportunity to know the Free SHS they have been placed in based on their raw scores.

What time will the 2020 School Placement be released?

The GES often releases the school placements down between 11:30 pm and 12 midnight. This is because the release is timed and once the release date and time ticks on the clock, the portal goes live.

When the 2020 BECE School Placement portal is opened, students can access their placements. Expect one of the following three outcomes.

a. You may be placed in one of the five schools you chose.

b. You may not qualify for any of the schools, in this case, you may qualify for self-placement

c. You may not be placed at all due to poor results, for example, if you obtain grade 9 in Mathematics or integrated science.

Apart from the above, you may have to contact the regional centres for any assistance. However, per the new placement system, GES has made it possible for those who do self-placement to go back into the system to change their school, accommodation, etc.

“I Can’t Take This Anymore”-Angry Mahama Finally Speaks Over Election Petition

Published

mahama and akufo angry 1

After a comment he made in an interview with journalists after the court proceedings today, John Dramani Mahama is causing huge stir. John Mahama has made it to the Supreme Court alongside his legal team and Tsatsu Tsikata and are seriously challenging their political opponents, the Npp.

The Supreme Court dismissed multiple motions submitted by the former President, His Excellency John Dramani Mahama, and this sparked questions as individuals began to tag the judges or panelists of the Supreme Court as bias.

When hearing the case in court today, a total of about 9 panelists dismissed another petition filed by Mahama and his legal team to prolong the court proceedings.

This was a proposal to prolong the court proceedings by the Ndc and its legal team, but it was rejected, and they were bent on denying this motion despite Tsatsu Tsikata’s attempt to persuade them.

 

After the legal blows thrown in court, John Mahama spoke to the media and journalists saying: I can no longer bear it, the court has dismissed multiple motions that were on the same road with the law and I do not know why this is happening.

He was puzzled by his team’s many denied motions and was curious why such treatment could be offered to them in court when their only purpose is to ensure that the right thing is done.

We Cannot Continue Anymore: They Have Not Being Fair To Us- NDC Legal Team Speaks

The National Democratic Congress has raised a variety of issues about the Supreme Court of Ghana hearing the pending election petition case.

When the Supreme Court judges sitting on the case set out the rules for the start of the trial, there was drama.

Tsatsu Tsikata, the lead counsel for Mr. John Dramani Mahama, urged the court to hear their applications.

He also advised the judges that in violation of fairness, the timelines for the case could not be served.

 

The judges had previously rejected some interrogations submitted by Tsatsu Tsikata.

As of Thursday, 21 January 2021, Mr. John Dramani Mahama‘s legal team has submitted an application to stay the 2020 election petition proceedings. They are calling on the court to abolish the trial plans for the main case before the request for review is approved.

Speaking in an interview on Asempa FM’s Ekosii Sen political program, Lawyer Edudzi Tamakloe, a member of the legal team of the National Democratic Congress, suggested that justice must be served on all Ghanaians fairly.

He states that the NDC can no longer continue to look at what is happening in the situation.

He suggests that the statement implying that John Mahama’s legal team is blocking the procedure is neither here nor there.

People on the other side just build the feeling that we’re playing the court with delay tactics.

What they’re talking about, we don’t know.

It’s only been a few days since the case was called, but they are telling us the time has been delayed.

 

It is expected to be five days for case management. This is only the initial phases, and it is not possible to identify three court sitting phases as delay.

We are all Ghanaians, at least, and justice has to be done fairly.

We can’t keep silent anymore. Not only that, but we’re going to make sure that the right things are done. Lawyer Edudzi Tamakloe suggested that

He says that for over forty-five years, lawyer Tsatsu Tsikatsa has studied law and must be treated with respect.
