Police Had To Question Lordina For Splashing £30K On A Handbag And £100K On A Shopping Spree- Chairman Wontumi

The Ashanti Regional Chairman for the New Patriotic Party, Mr. Bernard Antwi-Boasiako, has challenged Mr. John Mahama to answer questions over the £100K shopping spree his wife engaged in when he was President.

According to Mr. Bernard Antwi-Boasiako popularly known as Chairman Wontumi, a shop owner in the UK had to call in the Police because Lordina Mahama had stormed his shop and spent £30,000 an equivalent of GHC 245,891.70 on a designer handbag.

She didn’t end there but spent a total of £100K (GHC 819,639) in the store which raised eyebrows, Chairman Wontumi revealed.

The Police according to Chairman Wontumi were called in and upon interrogation, they got to know she was the first lady of Ghana.

Former President John Dramani Mahama has waded into controversies surrounding the payment of salaries for the wives of the President and Vice President.

In an article on his Facebook page, he described as ‘problematic’ “an attempt to sneak the First and Second Ladies into the article 71 office holders’ group”

According to him, the challenge is that the spouses of the President and Vice President are not captured among Article 71 Office Holders and, therefore, there is no legal or constitutional basis for it.

But in an interview with Wontumionline.com, Chairman Wontumi called on former President Mahama to explain to Ghanaians how his wife wasted such an amount of shopping if she wasn’t getting any form of salary or allowance from the state.

He opined that the spouses of Presidents and Vice Presidents play a vital role for Ghana and it wouldn’t be out of place to place their salary because they deserve it.

He, therefore, warned Mr. Mahama to stop the double standards and rather offer to enlighten others who are not privy about the role Presidential spouses play in developing the country.

Captain Smart Calls President Akufo Addo's Answers To Sefa Kayi 'Useless'

Captain Smart Calls President Akufo Addo’s Answers To Sefa Kayi ‘Useless’

Godsbrain Captain Smart, host of Onua TV’s morning show has jumped to the defense of fellow journalist, Kwami Sefa Kayi following his interview with President Akufo-Addo.

During the interview, Sefa Kayi sought to know the president’s reaction to the paramount Chief of the Aflao Traditional Area, Torgbui Adzonugaga Amenya Fiti who had given the government an ultimatum to complete and open the E-block in his area for use.

The President, however, asked the chief to open the E-block himself if he was going to give an ultimatum.

This has sparked controversy with some wondering how Kwami Sefa Kayi allowed President Akufo-Addo to pass such comment on his show.

Reacting to it, Captain Smart said Sefa Kayi asked the right questions and cannot be blamed for the president’s responses.

According to him, there are no useless questions but always stupid answers.

“Kwami asked the right question, it’s the president who did not understand the question. He was careful asking that question. A white man taught us that there is no useless question but there is always a stupid answer. I’m not insulting the president, I’m only quoting what I was taught,” he said.

Okudzeto Ablakwa Brilliantly Schools President Akufo Addo After Disrespecting Chief Of Aflao

Member of Parliament (MP) for North Tongu Constituency in the Volta Region on the ticket of the largest opposition, National Democratic Congress (NDC), Honourable Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa has brilliantly schooled President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.

It could be recalled that in a video that has since gone viral, President Akufo Addo was seen in the studios of Peace FM responding to a complaint that was sent to the host Kwame Sefa Kayi in a manner that calls for public ridicule.

According to Honourable Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa, the president’s comment is very disrespectful and should be condemned.

He wrote on his Facebook page as gathered by GhanaCNN.com:

“Our revered chiefs and custodians of our proud traditions deserve utmost respect at all times regardless of which part of the country they exercise their authority.

The venerable Torgbui Adzongaga Amenya Fiti V and the people of Aflao deserve an immediate retraction and apology from President Akufo-Addo.

No chief anywhere in Ghana should be spoken to with such derision, disrespect, and condescension.
Torgbui Fiti V rather deserves commendation for his courage in speaking out against the reckless wasteful culture of abandoning inherited projects.

We are one people united in our collective successes and challenges; intemperate language from the President who ordinarily should be strengthening national cohesion with his pronouncements ought to be condemned by all well meaning Ghanaians.”

Stop Misbehaving Like A Serial Caller – Nana Akomea Boldly Warns John Mahama

Managing Director of State Transport Corporation, Nana Akomea has told former president John Dramani Mahama to leave the propaganda in the hands of the NDC serial callers.

Nana Akomea was reacting to Mr. Mahama’s claims that the Electoral Commission were forced by the military to declare the results of the 2020 polls.

Mahama had also claimed that there was massive ballot stuffing in favour of the NPP during the elections. He made this known on Global FM during his thank-you tour.

Reacting to it on Peace FM’s morning show, Nana Akomea said these unfounded allegations are not befitting of a former president and must be done by serial callers.

“. . if you say soldiers forced Electoral Commission to declare results in favour of NPP without presenting evidence or you say the Electoral Commission printed 1 million ballots without substantiating it, you have to leave this for serial callers . . . For a whole former President to be saying these things is worrying. And you’ve accused the Electoral Commission of printing 1 million ballot papers, if you do that, then you’re inciting your followers against the Electoral Commission without any basis. That’s how unfair it is,” he said on Peace FM’s ”Kokrokoo”.
