Akufo Addo Is Raping Ama Ghana On This – NDC’s Sammy Gyamfi Boldly Fires

Let's Wait Patiently To See If The NPP Are Going To Organize A Press Conference On This Issue - Sammy Gyamfi

National Communications Director for the National Democratic Congress (NDC) Sammy Gyamfi has accused President of Ghana Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo is raping the public purse.

Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo prior to the 2016 elections told the Ghanaian people that the John Dramani Mahama government was corrupt and therefore he was coming to power to protect that public purse.

But with recent happenings and the expose by the North Tongu Member of Parliament Okudzeto Ablakwa on the expenses made on hiring of a jet for the President’s travels, Sammy Gyamfi believes the President is rather raping the public purse.

In a tweet, he said “Ghanaians can no longer finance the opulent lifestyle of @NAkufoAddo who has chosen to live like a Russian oligarch in this difficult time of economic hardships, joblessness, and hopelessness. Enough of the rape of the Public Purse”.

We Are Sorry: You Can’t Be A President This Time: John Mahama’s 2024 Ambition In Limbo

We Are Sorry: You Can’t Be A President This Time: John Mahama’s 2024 Ambition In Limbo

His name rings a bell. He came onto the throne as the youngest of all presidents who have governed the country Ghana post-independence.

He was first sworn in as president after the demise of Ghana’s first-ever president to have died whilst on the seat of the presidency, His Excellency professor John Fiifi Atta Mills.

John Dramani Mahama’s ascendancy to the throne was as dramatic as anything could ever be, going to work one morning as the Vice-President and returning home as a President of the Republic of Ghana the same day in June 2012.

He gave hope to the youth for the fact that once, a young person has been given the opportunity to rule, and maybe, this is a time for the young people to prove that they can also administer this country better than the old age people have done over the years.

Alas, many of his policies and programs targeted at developing this country rather led to the numerous challenges that this country witnessed during his time. There were rampant cases of corruption everywhere in the spheres of government; corruption of higher magnitude such that there were calls for deep investigation against many government officials.

One can name GYEEDA, the almighty RLG, and the Hope City amongst others. All of these projects failed to materialize. Anger grew, and people expressed serious outbursts against the once darling boy of many Ghanaians, John Dramani Mahama.

His government was characterized by mudslinging, pettiness, and bootlicking. This led to a lot of bickering within the circles of government and the NDC as a whole. There was gargantuan agitation against the government of the day led by John Dramani Mahama.

So in the lead-up to the 2016 elections, most of the polls that were conducted pointed out the fact that John Dramani Mahama will become Ghana’s first President to have lost after the first 4-year of ruling the country, and indeed it came to pass that in the 2016 elections.

Ghanaians chose the older Nana Addo Danquah Akufo Addo over the younger John Dramani Mahama.

It was a resounding voice and oneness from the people of Ghana to discard corruption and to welcome what was described as a future because the NPP promised jobs and most of all free Senior high school.

So to wake up to the news that Mahama says it is likely he will contest the 2024 elections is quite interesting. The headlines have been all over the news that he is likely to come back in 2024.

Will he ever make it despite everything that is happening? From a lot of things, it may be difficult for him.

President Mahama may think he has a chance because of the current outcry of Ghanaians on the Akufo Addo government. He should know that Ghanaians have a different reaction to his recent announcement.

It is shocking, but the reality; Ghanaians may never allow John Dramani Mahama to ever ascend the throne as President of Ghana again. We are sorry, Mr. Mahama, we can’t let this happen. You cannot have our support again.

”Say Hi To Medikal For Me” – Sam George Boldly Mocks Sister Derby On Twitter Over LGBTQ+ Bill

Musician and LGBTQ+ activist, Sister Derby, and lawmaker for Ningo-Prampram, Sam George have been exchanging words on twitter following the latter’s championing of a bill that seeks to criminalize LGBTQ+ activities in Ghana.

The bill since yesterday has got social media talking with some Ghanaians in support whule others disagree.

In a tweet, Sam George expressed contentment with the bill noting that he’s happy with the support it has received so far.

According to him, homosexuality is not a human right and cannot be entertained in Ghana.

However, Sister Derby, who is also a LGBTQ advocate, tweeted back, calling the legislator a backward thinker.

“You are only doing this to score political points forgetting the harm you are causing queer folk. Tell us what else you will personally gain from passing this bill if not political points??? Shame on you!” Sister Derby replied to Sam George’s tweet.

In another tweet, she wrote “You are rather full of perversion. So obsessed with people’s sexual orientation. Shame on you, you backward thinker!!!”

 

In a clap back, Sam George wrote: “Hopefully, when you figure out what genre of music you can succeed at, we can have a forward looking conversation. Until then, say hi to @AmgMedikal for me. Cheers,.”

Sister Derby replied saying the lawmaker is endangering the lives of Ghanaians with the bill; adding that she considers herself more successful than him.

“Just by fighting for Ghanaians whose lives YOU are endangering, I consider myself far more successful than you.”

Show Him The Exit Point Now Or You Face The Consequences Allotey Jacobs Tells Akufo-Addo

Show Him The Exit Point Now Or You Face The Consequences Allotey Jacobs Tells Akufo-Addo

Bernard Allotey Jacobs, a social commentator, has called on President Nana Akufo-Addo to fire Health Minister Kwaku Agyeman-Manu.

This follows the Minister’s admission that he erred in handling the entire Sputnik V Covid-19 vaccine transaction.

The Minister reached an agreement with a middleman to obtain the vaccines from Russia, but the transaction took place without parliamentary approval.

The Minister is said to have violated Article 181(5) of the 1992 Constitution with his actions.

Answering questions from a bipartisan Parliamentary Committee investigating the contract on Monday, July 19, the minister stated that he did not seek approval because he was “seriously in a situation that could not make me think properly.”

“I was in a desperate and helpless situation with the covid numbers management. In February, there were 78 deaths; by March, there were 56 deaths, and these were the figures that compelled me to act… If you were the Health Minister, I believe you would have made decisions that, in retrospect, you should not have made. The country was not in normal times…this was the environment I found myself in, full of desperation, frustration, and so many other emotions.

Following these admissions, the public has reacted in a variety of ways, with some calling for his resignation.

Mr Jacobs, who believes the Health Minister should be fired, questioned why Mr Agyeman-Manu did not notify Parliament before the transaction.

“You are a member of Parliament. When it comes to international transactions, you are well-versed in the etiquette. So, why are you unable to inform Parliament?”

According to him, the Minister has caused collateral damage to the government and thus does not deserve to remain in office.

“I know the President values friendship and relationships, but when it comes to the point where the old man says I didn’t think properly, the President can also find a way to tell him that, like him, I’m not thinking properly, so go home. “It’s as easy as ABCD,” he said on Peace FM.
