Akufo-Addo Started Out Drinking Kalypo But Now Showing Ghanaians His True Colors – Blakk Rasta

The 2016 presidential candidate for the opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP), Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, won the heart of Ghanaians when a photo of him humbly sipping on Kalypo fruit juice went viral ahead of the 2016 general elections.

This single move by the politician touched the hearts of electorates with several others joining the #KalypoChallenge on social media.

To them, it proved that Nana Addo was a man for all, ready to serve his people.

Fast forward to May 2022, outspoken musician and radio personality, Blakk Rasta has called out the man who came begging for power over his woeful performance in his second term in office as the president of Ghana.

Blakk in an interview with Captain Smart on Onua TV noted that all the cries and pleas of citizens in the current hardship have fallen on deaf ears because the president no longer prioritizes the nation.

“You are blowing our money, we are talking to you and you are not listening. Who are you? When he (Akufo-Addo) came he pretended he was very humble. He will sit in trotro, collect Kalypo and drink nicely and talk to the people beautifully and beg us to let him be the president to serve us.

“Today we are serving him. His dreams have come true but he has shattered ours,” said the disappointed singer who has called out the current NPP administration.

Blakk Rasta again likened the attitude of Mr Akufo-Addo to Satan whom the Holy Bible describes as arrogant.

“You expect me to like a man who is more arrogant than Satan. You are spending our money and flying around aimlessly. When we ask him to account for the monies spent on travels he comes to say it hinges on security so he can’t disclose it,” the singer stated.

Bawumia Launches Employable Skills Programme To Benefit Young People In Ahafo

The Vice President, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia on Wednesday launched a youth development employable skills programme that seeks to create jobs for more than 1,200 young people in the Ahafo Region.

Dubbed “Promoting Youth Employment through Employable Skills Training and Entrepreneurship”, the Newmont Ghana Gold Limited (NGGL) and the German Development Cooperation (GIZ) are sponsoring the programme.

The beneficiaries would be engaged in welding and fabrication, barbering, fashion design, hair dressing and dressmaking, bakery, masonry, wood technology, vulcanizing, general spraying and auto mechanics.

Speaking at the ceremony held at Goaso, the Ahafo Regional capital, Dr. Bawumia said about 72 per cent of the nation’s population were young people below 35 years, and thus commended the Ahafo Regional Coordinating Council for the initiative.

The Vice President noted “this is the first regional-led youth employment and skills training initiative in the country” and promised the government’s support for the programme to yield positive outcomes.

Dr. Bawumia, therefore, stressed the government’s commitment to transform Technical and Vocational Education Training (TVET) to make the sector more attractive for the youth.

Mr George Yaw Boakye, the Ahafo Regional Minister, said the programme’s implementation would well position the beneficiaries to create jobs for themselves to reduce youth unemployment in the region.

“This would also economically empower young people and help to end the issues of illegal mining and logging in the region,” he added.

Mr Boakye said the Management of NGGL had set aside GhC1 million for the procurement of training equipment and start up tools, and applauded the company for that assistance.

He said an amount of GhC25,000 has been set aside for each of the six politically-administrative districts and municipalities for the implementation of the programme.

2023 Budget: Minority Vows to Resist 2.5% Increment In VAT

The Minority in Parliament has vowed to resist any attempt by the government to revise the rate of Value Added Tax (VAT) upwards in the 2023 budget.

Government has given an indication VAT rate will be increased from the current 17.5% to 20%.

Speaking to the media in parliament, MP for Asuogyaman, Thomas Ampem Nyarko argued such a move will further exacerbate the current hardship in the country.

The NDC MPs rather want the government to cut down expenditure especially from the presidency vault.

“In fact the information we are picking up doesn’t look good for our dear country. The budget that is due to be read tomorrow promises to be a budget full of taxes. What we are hearing is that this government intends to increase VAT by 2.8 percent. They intend to increase income taxes and they intend to remove a lot of exemptions to Mobile Money (MoMo). So even merchants are going to be subjected to taxes.

“We have known this government to be insensitive but we never knew that their level of insensitivity would be this high. Because in this time of serious hardship in this country with inflation so high none of us expected that they would be increasing taxes to this level,” the Member of the Finance Committee stated.

He continued: “Our (Minority) posture is that we are willing to support the government in these difficult times. Because they need help if we don’t help this economy will crash. However, the government must come clear to show they are going to reduce expenditure drastically.”
