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.

‘Prez Akufo Addo and Bawumia Have A PhD In Lies And Deceit’ – NDC national organizer

Joshua Hamidu Akamba, national organizer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), has claimed that President Akufo Addo and Bawumia are experts at deceiving Ghanaians.
According to Akamba, his description of Ghana’s first and second gentlemen as dishonest men is appropriate given the NPP government’s failure to deliver on its promises to the electorate.

His remarks follow the President’s refund of GH238,000 to the Controller and Accountant General’s Department.

The funds represent his salary increase as a result of the recommendations of the Presidential Emoluments Committee, which is chaired by Prof. Yaa Ntiamoa-Baidu.

Following the constant lies of Ghana’s incumbent president and his right-hand man, Bawumia, Joshua Akamba made the above-mentioned assertion in an interview on Accra-based Neat FM.

They are “specialists in deception and lies.”

“How long did he [President Nana Addo] take to refund that money? Was it [Money] not showing up in his account?” he inquired.
