A very good friend of the late former President Jerry John Rawlings, Captain Richard Fordjour (Rtd), has finally shared what killed his good friend and colleague.
In Group Captain Richard Fordjour’s view, the late former President Jerry John Rawlings in his last days on earth felt betrayed by those he had worked with within the past.
Speaking at a vigil held in his memory at Air Force Mess in Accra, group captain Fordjour (Rtd) stated that the publication of the book by Kwamena Ahwoi, who was highly critical of Rawlings, was the last nail in the coffin of Rawlings.
” Working With Rawlings” , a book written by Professor Kwamena Ahwoi, who served as a local government secretary and later local government minister, tells details of the experiences of people who worked with the late military leader who later became chief of elected state.
The book described the former leader of Ghana as someone who always bullied his subordinates. Professor Ahwoi described the former president as ” a divisive leader who is unable to keep and keep friends. ”
” Often he would pretend disinterest and look out the window or play with his toy planes, ” the former minister wrote on page 232 of his book ” Working With Rawlings. ”
Professor Ahwoi also on the same page said that the former president ” did not understand many of the very technical issues” raised in cabinet meetings, a weakness that led him to engage in activities that were not part of such discussions.
Reflecting on those matters, Group Captain Richard Fordjour (Rtd) said as he recalled his last meeting with Rawlings: ” In his last days, he [Rawlings] died betrayed.
That book, that was it, and the response that came from those that he worked with really hit him hard. We did our best to keep him from responding, but it was a huge blow to him. ”
He further claimed that the release of Ahwoi’ s controversial book, along with the death of Rawlings’ mother, Madame Victoria Agbotui, both events occurring close to each other in 2020, were a major blow to Rawlings. ” Given the benefit of hindsight, his last days [were not] the best, apart from the deteriorating medical condition, ” emphasized Group Captain Fordjour.
Meanwhile, Flt. Lt. Jerry John Rawlings (Rtd. ) Passed away on Thursday, November 12, 2020, at Korle Bu University Hospital after a brief illness.
He left behind his wife, former first lady Nana Konadu Agyeman- Rawlings, and four children.
Requirements For Registering Your MTN SIM Card In Ghana
There are certain conditions you must fulfill before you can register your MTN SIM card in Ghana. Your SIM will not be registered for you if you do not meet any of these conditions.
Some criteria for registering your MTN SIM card in Ghana are listed below:
- National Photo Identification Card (Ghana Card, Voter’s ID, Driver’s License, or Ghana Passport)
- A new MTN SIM card
- Your address of residence (you can include the Ghana Post GPS code (GE-XXX-XXXX))
How To Register Your MTN SIM Card By Yourself
When you buy a new MTN SIM card from a reputable Ghanaian retailer, your SIM will be registered for you. However, there will be times when you are unable to register your SIM at that time. If this occurs, you must return home and register the new MTN SIM on your own. As a result, I wrote this article to demonstrate how to register your MTN SIM card in Ghana.
MTN Ghana is one of (if not the) country’s largest and most widely used telecommunications platforms. MTN (formerly Areeba) has been in the Ghanaian telecommunications sector for over two decades (2).
After they rebranded from Areeba to MTN, most Ghanaians were of the view that this business was going to collapse soon. Over two (2) decades on, Ghanaians have now realized that MTN Ghana has gained a market in Ghana and has indeed come to stay for good.
Almost every village in Ghana has now been connected to the MTN Ghana network. Thus, it is no news that MTN is the biggest telecommunication platform in Ghana.
In terms of mobile money, even uneducated Ghanaians from both the rural and urban areas are now active on MTN Mobile Money. In my village alone, somewhere in the Eastern Region of Ghana, there are more than ten (10) MTN Mobile Money (MoMo) operators.
How to Register Your MTN SIM Card in Ghana
Before you can use a SIM card in Ghana, you must first register it with the appropriate network provider. You can’t register your MTN SIM card with Vodafone or vice versa, for example. Otherwise, the SIM card will not function until you have completed your due diligence.
- Visit any MTN authorized vendor or office in the country
- Give your SIM card to the merchant
- Provide the merchant with your ID document
- In a few minutes, the merchant will register your SIM card for and get you registered on the MTN Ghana subscriber’s database
- Upon successful completion, the merchant will hand over your registered SIM and ID document to you
- Afterward, insert the SIM card into your mobile phone and enjoy all the MTN Ghana services.
‘I Foresee A Doom Before Him’- Popular NDC Man Warns Sammy Gyamfi
Recent comments made by the NDC’s National Communications Officer, Samuel ‘Sammy’ Gyamfi, according to economist and columnist Isaac ‘Coach Opeele’ Boateng, are likely to exacerbate the party’s already precarious situation.
According to him, the party’s inability to properly present its case, causing disappointment among its members and well-wishers, is a storm that is still passing, “and the party is already in trouble” because of Sammy Gyamfi’s outburst.
He pointed out that the present situation in the NDC is a repeat of what occurred in the NPP in 2012. “A storm is brewing in the NDC, with Sammy Gyamfi accusing the party’s leadership in parliament of being disloyal and calling for their expulsion. This is the same thing that happened in the NPP, resulting in internal problems.”
Coach Opeele believes the NDC will face more internal strife in the future, particularly because they currently lack a unifying leader. “The NDC is behaving in the same way as the NPP did in opposition a few years ago. I assume the party no longer has a leader who can summon the party’s members to order.”
This was mentioned by the Social Analyst as part of his contribution to a panel discussion on Happy 98.9 FM’s Epa Hoa Daben political talk show.
The NDC’s election petition, which claimed that no party received the legal 50 percent plus one needed to win the Presidency, was dismissed by a seven-member Supreme Court bench. The court has ruled that the case is without substance.
In other news, the NDC’s National Communication Officer, Sammy Gyamfi, has accused the party’s leadership in Parliament, as well as the Speaker, Alban Bagbin, of betraying the party, which is assumed to be exacerbating the party’s woes.
Sammy Gyamfi said Haruna Iddrisu, MP for Tamale South, and Muntaka Mubarak, MP for Asawase, “brazenly defied the party leadership and betrayed the public good for their selfish interest.”
“We must not allow them to succeed in their narrow-minded attempt to delegitimize the NDC, the party that has done so much for them and all of us. In a Facebook post, he said, “The embarrassment they have brought on the group will forever hang like an albatross around their necks.”
His claim comes after NDC MPs on Parliament’s Appointments Committee approved Dominic Nitiwul, the Defence Minister-designate, and later approved three others rejected Minister-designates when they were brought before the House.
Dr. Afriyie Akoto, the Food and Agriculture Minister-designate, received 53.96 percent of the vote with 143 votes out of 265 ballots cast, with one spoilt ballot.
Mavis Hawa Koomson received 60.75 percent of the vote with 161 votes, and Oppong Nkrumah received 58.65 percent of the vote with 155 votes.
With 137 NPP MPs, 137 NDC MPs, and one independent candidate remaining in Ghana’s Parliament, it appears that some NDC MPs voted to support the Minister-designates.
