Mr. Ofori Atta was approved yesterday after a consensus was reached by both the majority and the minority.
Mr Ofori-Atta was unable to be vetted sooner due to ill health caused by complications from Covid-19 treatment last year.
As a result of the contentious Agyapa deal and others, his vetting drew a lot of attention from the public.
However, after two days of questioning, the Appointments Committee unanimously approved his appointment.
Earlier reports suggested that the Minority was planning to reject and abstain from voting on Mr Ofori-Atta after their party members chastised them for voting on some nominees.
However, this clearly did not occur.
In seconding the motion for Mr. Ofori Atta’s approval, the honorable minority leader, Haruna Iddrisu, stated that his side’s support does not necessarily imply that they are satisfied with the finance minister’s work.
He believes that the minister should bear his own cross because he has mismanaged the economy for the past four years.
Doom Hangs Around Nana Akufo Addo -As Woman Invokes Death Curses On Him
Barely days after the controversial preacher, Nigel Gasie prophesied to the effect that Akufo-Addo will die before the end of his second term, a video has emerged of a woman cursing the President of Ghana to death at a voodoo shrine.
The woman who has since been identified as Attaa Magali is also captured in the video invoking Akufo-Addo’s name with incantations while stabbing him together with others at the shrine over his meddlesomeness in the Okuapeman chieftaincy disagreement.
“…It is me Attaa sister to Kwasi Akufo who is being denied the Okuapehene stool. I am the one putting this photo into the coffin. Anyone who is part of this grand scheme from the family must be killed and summoned to the wilderness to answer,” the woman is heard invoking in a part of the video.
The video which is believed to have been leaked from the shrine of Togbe Shitor, a fetish Priest who plies his Spiritism in Akyem Kukurantumi of the Eastern Region, captures Attaa Magali at a point stripping naked to curse Akufo-Addo and others.
One of the people who was cursed along with the President was the late Victor Newman, Director of Research at the Presidency. As Mr. Newman had died suddenly in December 2020, many are fearing that he probably was cut short by the curse of Ataa Magali.
Other names she mentioned as targets of her curse include one Sammy Mfum, Nana Ofei and the Akuapem Baamuhene.
The woman is brother to Kwasi Akuffo, a claimant to the Okuapeman stool.
It would be recalled that since 2017, there has been dispute over whose turn it is to ascend the stool which is also called the Ofori Kuma Stool.
The Akropong stool has three ruling houses – Nketia, Amogyaa, and Sakyibea. whose turn was in season to produce the next chief after the death of Oseadeeyo Addo Dankwah III, Okuapemhene who reigned for 41 years .
However, while Odehye Kwasi Akuffo was nominated by the Queen mother -Nana Afua Nketia Obuo for installation, the Abrewatia (sapient granny) of the Sakyeabea Royal family , Lillian Nana Agyemang, also nominated Odehye Kwadwo Kese for the same stool.
The Abrewatia subsequently petitioned the Regional House Chiefs challenging the traditional capacity of the Paramount Queen mother in nominating and installing Odehye Kwasi Akuffo to ascend the stool.
The Judicial Committee of the Eastern Regional House of Chiefs on Thursday, April 30, 2020, nullified the nomination of Odehye Kwasi Akuffo.
In an April 30, 2020, judgment, the Eastern Regional House of Chiefs upheld that selection of a legible royal to be enstooled as Paramount Chief is the prerogative of the Abrewatia of the ruling family whose turn it is to select a candidate and submit the name of the chosen royal to Asonahene to be sent to the Queen mother.
The House upheld that the Queen-mother failed to provide evidence that the right traditional procedures were followed before initiating processes to install Odehye Kwasi Akuffo as Okuapemhene.
It stated that the Queen mother alone cannot select a candidate from the Royal Family without the involvement of the Abrewatia, adding that, the involvement of the Abrewatia and the elderly female is an aged-custom.
Odehye Kwadwo Kese was subsequently enstooled and outdoored on Sunday, May 3, 2020 with the stool name Oseadeeyo Kwasi Akuffo II.
Late last year, the faction against which the ruling was made had gone to court and as part of its case alleged that President Akufo-Addo had attempted to bribe him with money so that he would stand down his claim to the throne.
Allegedly, the bribe had been passed through former Chieftaincy Affairs Minister, Kofi Dzamesi. And allegedly, all of this was part of the Akufo-Addo Jubilee House’ machination to ensure that the rightful heir to the throne is not installed.
Reportedly, it is in response of the alleged devious injustice that Kwasi Akuffo’s sister went to Togbe Shitor’s shrine to curse Akufo-Addo and his alleged collaborators with death.
“Those who have tied our souls in the middle of the Akropong so that we don’t get the support of the subjects must be dealt with -Sammy Mfum, Nana Ofei, Baamuhene, Victor Newman, President Akufo Addo are all included. Nananom deal with them and also protect our family. Now, I bath this concoction to cancel any death on our family and send it back to them”, Attaa Magali chanted.
In another part of the video, the fetish priest is seen directing Attaa Magali to inform his brother, Odehye Kwasi Akuffo not to eat any food prepared with palm oil. He also instructs her to warn Odehye Kwesi Akufo not to get closer or sit on the stool because a god was going to sit on it for a while to work and therefore anyone who sat on the stool would die.
After undressing, a naked Attaa Magali is made to open the entrance to another shrine. She is then directed to bath in a liquid concoction in a locally weaved basket and chant for goodwill upon her brother Odehye Kwasi Akuffo but wish evil for his opponents including President Akufo Addo.
The videos come just days after Prophet Nigel Gaizie is seen in another video prophesying that Vice President Bawumia will replace Akufo-Addo before the end of the President’s second term.
Battle Grounds: You Are A Very Stupid Man– Reverend Owusu Bempah Heavily Insults NDC’s Baba Jamal
On Wednesday, April 7, Okay FM became a battleground as the founder of Glorious Word Power Ministry, Isaac Owusu Bempah, and Baba Jamal, the former Member of Parliament for Akwatia, traded jabs.
In response to Owusu Bempah’s prophecy, Baba Jabal warned that members of the NDC would be forced to attack his pastoral works if he did not stop attacking former President John Dramani Mahama.
An enraged Baba Jamal dismissed Owusu Bempah’s prophecy that the former president is cursed and will be unable to run for re-election in the future unless the spell is broken.
“I have told him several times that if he doesn’t stop mentioning John Mahama’s name, we will also force our way into his pastoral work. All I want to tell him is that he should take his prophecy and we will focus on our politics.
Reacting to the comment by Baba Jamal on the same programme, Owusu Bempah reprimanded the ex-MP for attacking his prophecies.
He noted that Baba Jamal has developed a habit of attacking him and cautioned that he is not the only person allowed to criticise politicians.
“I want him (Baba Jamal) to understand that the country does not belong to him. If he can express his opinion on any president then everyone can. Is he saying we cannot say anything about the former president? I haven’t said that he (John Mahama) has been cursed. I’m just saying there are certain things he must perform to ensure that he wins the election.
“There is something called ancestral curse. Some people are suffering from curses from their grandparents. What is wrong if I say this. I don’t know what I have done to warrant insult from people.
“Baba Jamal, If you are a Muslim, focus on your Islam. Don’t bring it into my pastoral activities. What power do you have to veer into my pastoral life. You have no such power. You have attacked me so many times and I have ignored you but be careful? If you insult me, I will respond. Is there something wrong with your brain? You are a stupid man,” he blurted.
