Autopsy Report: Mills Was President Of Ghana, Koku’s Daughter Wasn’t- Chairman Wontumi Fires Samuel Atta Mills

The Ashanti regional Chairman for the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Mr. Bernard Antwi-Boasiako, has fired Hon. Samuel Atta Mills for his “unintelligent” request for Mr. Koku Andyidoho to produce an autopsy report of his daughter before the family of the late former President Mills would release his.

The NPP Chairman popularly known as Chairman Wontumi in an interview with Wontumionline.com, stated that the demand being made by Hon. Samuel Atta Mills, shows how “shallow” he thinks and a clear indication that he doesn’t cherish the memory of his own blood brother, the late John Evans Atta Mills.

Mr. Koku Anyidoho has come under attack from Hon. Samuel Atta Mills because he (Anyidoho) has made strides to get his former boss, the late Mills a befitting resting place.

Hon. Samuel Atta Mills who is the MP for KEEA, has shifted the conversation from getting his own brother a secured resting place to Mr. Anyidoho producing the autopsy report of his late daughter.

It is on this note that Chairman Wontumi has fired him for “comparing apples to oranges” noting that “Koku’s daughter wasn’t the President of Ghana but Mills was. It is therefore right for Ghanaians to know what led to Mills’ death than that of Koku’s daughter”.

JB Danquah Wanted To Name The Newly Independent Gold Coast ‘Akan Land’ – Kwesi Pratt Jnr

Published

on


Managing editor of the Insight Newspaper, Kwesi Pratt Jnr, has debunked claims by adherents of the Danquah-Busia tradition that Joseph Boakye (JB) Danquah suggested the name ‘Ghana’ to be given to the newly independent Gold Coast Colony.

Speaking on his television station, Pan African TV, Kwesi Pratt said J.B Danquah actually wanted to name the country ‘Akan Land’!

“The name J.B. Danquah suggested for the Gold Coast was Akan Land. Can you imagine that we were struggling for independence one of the people said after independence, we should call this place Akan Land?” he said.

Pratt said the name ‘Ghana’ was suggested by a priest and historian who made the connection between the historical Ghana empire and the Gold Coast.

He also added that whilst the Danquah-led faction wanted a fragmented nation, Kwame Nkrumah was the one who fought for a united nation and even brought in Transvolta Togoland.

“There is this argument that he [J.B Danquah] is the one who actually suggested the name Ghana, it is not true. The historical record is there and clear. Lord Lugard and his wife, even before then there was a priest who had traced the link between the Gold Coast and the new Ghanaian empire. The record is there and clear.

“The name J.B. Danquah suggested for the Gold Coast was Akan Land…The referendum which led to the inclusion of British Togoland, the campaign was led by Osagyefo Dr. Kwame Nkrumah. There is no dispute about it. Ghana has always not been like this. Something went into bringing Trans-Volta Togoland, consolidating Ashanti space in Ghana, and bringing the Northern Territory to Ghana. What did J.B. Danquah do to bring Trans-Volta Togoland to Ghana? What did he do?” he queried.

The journalist called for the claims that J.B Danquah was the founder of Ghana to be set aside and Osagyefo Dr. Kwame Nkrumah recognised as Ghana’s true founder.

Speaker of Parliament, Alban Bagbin Quits Ghana Bar Association -Wild Details Drop

Speaker of Parliament, Rt Hon. Alban Sumana Kingsford Bagbin has withdrawn his membership from the Ghana Bar Association (GBA).

Mr Bagbin said the conduct of the renowned lawyers association is problematic and people are worried about its position on matters of national interest.

The Speaker of Parliament made this revelation when a delegation from a newly created association of lawyers: the Law Society of Ghana (LSG) paid a courtesy call to him at his office.

The LSG delegation which was led by its Acting President and MP for South Dayi, Hon. Rockson-Nelson Dafeamekpor, was at the Speaker’s office to congratulate him on his new position as the President of the Commonwealth Leaders Association.

They used the opportunity to inform the Speaker about the inception of LSG and its contribution to nation-building.

The LSG is an association for lawyers and law students who seek to shape national discourse and fight against injustice in all forms.

To Mr Dafeamekpor, the group has realized that the GBA has deviated from its core mandate in terms of fairness and inclusiveness.

He also observed that the GBA has sidelined some of its members and added that a lot of things done by the association are discharged with partisan colours.

The primary aim of LSG, Dafeamekpor stressed, is to cater for “the welfare of lawyers” and “push for reforms in the Ghana Legal system, for instance the Judicial System control on the training of legal professionals.”

As part of LSG structures, the MP said, there is the intention to affiliate with a lot of globally recognized Lawyer Associations such as the West African lawyers Association, Pan African Lawyers Association, African Lawyers Association, and Commonwealth lawyers amongst others.

Speaker’s Concerns About GBA

Reacting to the vision of the LSG, Speaker Bagbin stated the Society is good for the country as it is going to throw a global light on Ghana, especially with the global affiliations.

To him, a lot of people were worried at the state of GBA and their actions.

” I am no longer a member of GBA,” he disclosed and explained that he did not seem to benefit from the association.

Speaker Bagbin said the GBA has now become an association of elites, stressing that he used to pay his dues “religiously” but got to know that any lawyer that attended the public tribunal was not recognized and thus his interest in GBA diminished.

“I will support the LSG wholeheartedly and with the right opportunities irrespective of the numbers of members so long as we are focused and committed, we can make tremendous waves,” he assured.

Speaker Bagbin said Ghanaians have the brain power to capitalize on “for our benefit” hence “the quest for value and what is right always takes us to places and I believe LSG will be one of the pillars of such a culture to take us to places as a country.”

He also advised LSG to come up with reasoned opinions and critique law reports and publish them in journals.
