PRESS STATEMENT BY THE NATIONAL DEMOCRATIC CONGRESS ON THE MURDER OF YOUNG ISHMAEL MENSAH ABDALLAH AT KASOA.
It is with extreme shock and disbelief that the National Democratic Congress received news of the gruesome murder of a ten-year-old boy called Ishmael Mensah Abdallah at Kasoa in the Central Region by his own teenaged acquaintances for ritual purposes.
The Leadership, as well as the entire rank and file of the NDC, join the family and friends and, indeed, the entire nation, in mourning the loss of this young and promising boy much beloved by his family and community.
It is the expectation of the National Democratic Congress that the appropriate authorities will ensure that the bereaved family are comforted by the swiftness of the application of the law to punish the perpetrators and all who may be behind this dastardly murder.
The NDC has taken due notice of the fact that there appears to be a fashionable craze toward the acquisition of quick wealth by many of our countrymen and women and the youth in particular, without the attendant hard, morally sound and lawful means of obtaining the same.
We deem this development as a dangerous trend that has to be condemned and discouraged by all and sundry.
It is a development that the NDC is unquestionably opposed to, or else we risk bequeathing to the youth, a practice and a lifestyle that cannot build this nation.
We further wish to draw the attention of the Akufo-Addo government to the plethora of crimes whose resolution has dragged on interminably, thus, encouraging the perpetuation of the culture of impunity.
We encourage the youth to look out for honest, hardworking, and accomplished persons as their role models.
The wealth that has been improperly obtained, should never be an attraction for the upcoming youth of this great nation.
In this regard, we call on the Akufo-Addo government to speed up investigations and crank the wheels of justice so that the country can rid itself of the odious reminder of this unfortunate event.
May the soul of young Ishmael Mensah Abdallah rest in peace.

- Headmistress of school where JHS student, Leticia Kyere Pinaman, took her life narrates what she saw
A 14-year-old final year student of Miracle Junior High School at Sunyani in the Bono Region, Leticia Kyere Pinaman, is believed to have died by suicide.
She is suspected to have hung herself on Monday evening at the school’s dining hall.
It is not yet clear what might have accounted for the incident.
The 31-year-old talks about his form this season for both club and country.
Ghana captain Andre Ayew believes his stay in the English second-tier with Swansea City is not in any way an indication of his quality.
The 31-year-old has been in fine form in the Championship this season, having so far racked up 17 goals in 44 total (play-off inclusive) outings.
On Monday, he made all the difference when the Jack Army faced Barnsley in the promotion play-off first leg where his first-half goal ensured a 1-0 win.
“Some people will say maybe my career has dwindled because I’m playing in the championship and let me say there were offers to go and play in the Premier and I could have jumped at the first offer that came in, but no,” Ayew, who was highly linked to Premier League side West Bromwich Albion and Brighton & Hove Albion in summer last year, told BBC Sport Africa.
The immediate past Ashanti Regional Security Coordinator, Mr Kwaku Ayesu Opare-Addo, who is a retired Deputy Commissioner of Police has been advised to proceed to court if he was unhappy with his removal from office and the circumstances surrounding it.
The Ashanti Regional Minister, Mr Simon Osei Mensah who gave the advise also urged Mr Opare-Addo to desist from the media utterances in relation to the matter.
To him, Mr Opare-Addo distinguished himself whilst in office and therefore the media utterances he was currently engaged in was likely to erode the good works he did.
In a radio interview monitored by Graphic Online on Accra based Okay FM Tuesday morning, Mr Osei Mensah said Mr Opare-Addo tried to ignore the notice to him to vacate the office.
Seasoned Journalist, Kwesi Pratt Jnr. has called on government to put all mining activities in Ghana on hold for half a year.
A joint team of Ghana Armed Forces, Ghana Navy and Ghana Air Forces have commenced an operation dubbed ‘Operation Halt’ aimed at ending galamsey.
Their operation has been sanctioned by the Lands and Natural Resources Minister, Samuel Abu Jinapor and Defence Minister, Dominic Nitiwul.
Sad Video: A Beautiful16-Year Old Girl Found Hanging Dead At School Dining Hall – Mother Alleges Murder

There was also a note found on the deceased’s body that read, “there is so much sorrow and pain in my heart.”
Some of the students who spoke to reporters stated that their colleague had been moody all day but they had no idea what was wrong with her.
However, in a video circulating online, a woman believed to be the deceased’s mother claims that the deceased was murdered and hanged to cover up the crime.

You Are Part Of Those Who Destroying Our Party,Abronye DC Exposes Top NPP Official Over Galamsey Sagga
Kwame Baffoe, Bono Region Chairman of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) and popularly known as Abronye, has accused the Head of Monitoring and Evaluation at the Ministry of Lands and Natural Resources of being involved in illegal mining.
The Ghanaian government is currently fighting illegal mining in the country in order to protect the country’s forest reserves and water bodies, which have been destroyed as a result of illegal mining.
Speaking on Kumasi-based Wontumi FM, Abronye indicated that the Head of Monitoring and Evaluation at the Ministry of Lands and Natural Resources is engaged in the act which the government is fighting so hard to end.
He indicated that his concession is at the Adamso Forest at Obuasi.
What beats his imagination is the fact that he does not only engage in mining but also chops down the trees in the forest and sell them.
“The Ministry of Lands and Natural Resources’ Head of Monitoring and Evaluation is deeply involved in galamsey. A ministry fighting galamsey includes monitoring and evaluation in the act they are fighting. He does the galamsey with some big man in Obuasi’s Adamso forest.”
Abronye stated that the big man working with the Head of Monitoring and Evaluation is a New Patriotic Party National Executive and that he will expose those who are sabotaging the President’s work.
