Johnson Asiedu Nketia, General Secretary of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) has been slammed for claiming Majority Leader, Osei Kyei-Mensah Bonsu is afraid of issues of his past life could be brought to open when he offers himself for ministerial appointment, therefore, settling for Parliamentary leadership.
According to Asiedu Nketia, he was in parliament with Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu when issues surrounding how he changed his name from Lawrence Addae to Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu came up.
He further noted that the Suame lawmaker knows “we know everything”, hence he settles for parliamentary leadership where there is no vetting.
Reacting to these claims, Dr. Nana Ayew Afriyie, NPP MP for Effiduase-Asokore noted that Johnson Asiedu Nketia as a former MP should know better and stop making baseless claims.
He stated that Kyei-Mensah has been vetted twice; one in 2007 and the other in 2017 to be appointed as Minister of State and Minister of Parliamentary Affairs respectively.
“It is also [trite] knowledge that as [the] minister for parliamentary affairs nominee, he was vetted in 2017. Asiedu Nketia should grow up. He has been a Member of Parliament before, and I expected him to have had all these facts on his fingertips,” Dr. Ayew Afriye charged. “Going too pedestrian on a former colleague just for political expediency is needless,” he said.
“He should know better and make assertions grounded on reasonable thinking.”
President Akufo Addo, Stop The Madness At Audit Service – Franklin Cudjoe Blast Akufo-Addo
This comes after the Audit Service released a letter accusing Domelevo of falsifying documents.
“Records at the Social Security and National Insurance Trust (SSNIT) completed and signed by you indicate your date of birth as 1 June 1960 when you joined the scheme on 1 October 1978. The records show that you stated your tribe as Togolese and a non-Ghanaian. That your home town is Agbatofe.
“On 25 October 1992, you completed and signed a SSNIT Change of Beneficiary Nomination form, stating your nationality as a Ghanaian and your home town as Ada in the Greater Accra Region. The date of birth on your Ghanaian passport number A45800, issued on 28 February 1996 is 1 June 1961. That place of birth is stated as Kumasi, Ashanti Region,” the letter said.
Domelevo in response said “either my father wrongly mentioned Agbatofe in Togo as his hometown to me, or I misconstrued it at the time… My mother is also a Ghanaian.
“The register has Yaw as part of my name and also provides my date of birth as 1 June 1961 – this corresponds with Thursday or Yaw- the day of the week on which I was born.”
Reacting to the ongoing friction, Franklin Cudjoe urged the President to come through.
“Mr President, please stop the madness going on at the Audit Service. Haba!!”, he wrote on twitter
You Better Stop Them Before They Disgrace You – Afia Pokua Vim Lady Warns Akufo-Addo
He had, however, been content with his leave until the Audit Service Board questioned his retirement date and nationality.
Daniel Yao Domelevo is a Togolese who was born on June 1, 1960, according to the Audit Service Board.
As a result, the Auditor General was set to step down on June 1, 2020.
However, Afia Pokuwaa, better known as Vhim Lady, a well-known television and radio hostess, has expressed her displeasure with the Audit Service Board’s deliberate machiavellian tactics in removing Daniel Yao Domelevo from his position.
She believes that the Audit Service Board, led by Professor Edward Dua Agyeman, should do the right thing and leave the Auditor General alone, despite their efforts to uncover flaws in Domelevo’s records.
He urged Ghana’s President to summon the Audit Service’s board of directors if they do not resolve their legal dispute with Daniel Yao Domelevo amicably.
(VIDEO)He Was Determined To Jail Me But He Failed-Lawyer Tsatsu Tsikata Reveals
According to him, there was a plot from the beginning to undo the gains made by the Rawlings administration in the oil and gas field, and because he was the head of the commission, he knew he would be persecuted soon.
Tsatsu, speaking on Pan African TV’s KSM show, claimed that the Kufuor government was “determined” to find fault with Rawlings’ handling of the GNPC, and that he knew it would come down to him.
“I was involved in the GNPC under President Rawlings and was considered a close associate of Rawlings. His interest in establishing GNPC at the time deserves a lot of credit.”
“Unfortunately, when a new government came into power in this country, they wanted to toss everything he had done overboard. I was the head of GNPC at the time, and I became a target. They had to come up with something. By the beginning of 2001, I could see the determination to find something against me, by any means necessary. That’s how all these interesting cases against me came about, he explained.
Tsatsu also discussed the court proceedings that led to his detention at Nsawam Prison.
“I took the Fast Track Court to the Supreme Court, and it was declared unconstitutional. To form the review, they changed the panel and added two more panels. People were criticizing the judges’ decision in my favor at the time. You should listen to what then-Attorney-General, President Akufo-Addo, had to say about the judges. There was a strong desire to reverse the decision. “Justice Afreh was appointed, and another judge was appointed as well, so it went from 5-4 in my favor to 6-5 against me,” he explained.
When Tsatsu Tsikata was the head of the GNPC, he was imprisoned in 2008 for wilfully causing financial loss to the state.
After eight years, the Court of Appeal ruled that the High Court had wrongfully imprisoned Mr Tsikata and cleared him of all charges.
