CPP Gives Government A 3-week Ultimatum To Refund Monies Collected From Ghanaians

The Convention People’s Party (CPP) has given the government a three-week ultimatum to refund monies collected from Ghanaians, who purchased application forms, to be employed in state-owned agencies.

This comes as several security agencies, including the Ghana Police Service, begins mass recruitment of staff across the country and eligible applicants are required to purchase a form at GH¢100.00.

Addressing the media at the party’s headquarters in Accra, the Chairperson of the Party, Nana Akosua Frimpomaa said the CPP will go to court, should the government fail to heed to the call.

“I am giving the institutions up to the 21st of September to refund the monies to the applicants,” she said.

“If it doesn’t happen, they will see the anger of the youth and those of us who are committed to following the dreams and aspirations of Dr Kwame Nkrumah, we will explore every means legally possible, to drive home our concerns,” she added.

Questioning why a citizen will have to pay to serve the state, Nana Akosua Frimpomaa indicated that the government is encouraging corruption by extorting monies from the youth.

“Why am I expected to pay 100 cedis to apply for a job as a youth in this country, this is extortion at its peak.

“I am appealing to the President to immediately look into it. For the state to ask the youth of this country to pay, just to find a job is unacceptable,” she said.

She observed that the government “will not be able to get patriotic Ghanaians to fight corruption if this mode of application is institutionalised.”

The Party is, therefore, demanding that the government accounts for monies collected in the past.

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”.
