Fire 4 Fire: I’m Deeply Offended And Nothing Can Save Captain Smart From My Lawsuit – Joe Wise

It is no longer a piece of news for one to point out that Onua TV’s morning show host, Captain Smart makes name for himself by ‘barking’ at allegations he has no knowledge of.

1st Deputy Speaker of Parliament, Joseph Osei Owusu has served notice that he’ll be suing broadcast journalist, Captain Smart for defamation.

Speaking on Ultimate FM in Kumasi, the Right Honorable Joseph Osei Owusu expressed utter disappointment the vociferous broadcaster failed to retract his claims that the legislator was deceiving chiefs in his constituency by presenting them with Dud Cheques.

He explained, “The chief of the community himself held a press conference to say you are lying. The lawyer gave out a hundred thousand cedis and that is what we are using to do this so please apologize to him. He went on to repeat it and I am deeply offended.”

He said he would fight for his integrity and would go to court to have his name cleared.

Until You Sack Wontumi, You Can Never Fight Galamsey – Captain Smart Boldly Tells Akufo-Addo

Host of Maakye on Onua TV/FM, Blessed Godsbrain Captain Smart has said until President Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo sacks Chairman Wontumi, his fight against galamsey would forever be a figment of his imagination.

Captain Smart was commenting on the President’s visit to the Ashanti Region over the increasing galamsey and other projects halted in the garden city after Onua TV/Akoma FM jointly held a Peoples’ Assembly which brought to bear several issues confronting the residents.

Captain Smart, who has mentioned Bernard Antwi Bosiako, a.k.a. Wontumi, a regional Chairman of the ruling New Patriotic Party, as a kingpin in the illegal mining business said the President’s visit to discuss among other things, the increasing galamsey in the region would yield no result until Wontumi is ousted.

“There is only one media house in this country that can go to the Ashanti region and in less than a week, the president has to go there. Because the issues popping up are many. But Nana Addo, sack Wontumi before you can fight galamsey. Until you sack him, you can never fight galamsey,” he said.

NDC Name Top Officials Involved In Galamsey In Ashanti Region

The Ashanti Region Communications Bureau of the major opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) is alleging top executives of their archrivals are neck-deep in the growing galamsey menace.

The NDC specifically pointed fingers at New Patriotic Party (NPP) Ashanti Region Communication Director Dennis Kwakwa as “deeply involved in the galamsey menace including other top executives in the region”.

When probed by host of Akoma FM‘s GhanAkoma Aduanaba Kofi Asante Ennin to withdraw his comment because his platform has no evidence to his claims, Director of Communication for NDC in Ashanti Region Abass Nurudeen insisted that “I know what I’m saying Kofi. You can disassociate yourself from what I’m saying but it’s not mere allegation”.

Mr Nurudeen while speaking on the show Tuesday, October 4, explained that he is aware and has reliable information that almost all the national and regional executives of the NPP have concessions and are assiduously digging into the Earth’s belly for the precious metal at the expense of the ecology.

Reacting to the NDC allegations was member of the NPP communication team, Baafour Asaase Gyimah.

He explained that “though Mr Nurudeen is just making empty allegations, I will advise him to be careful because such insinuations can really cost you your political career but I can categorically say none of the NPP executives I know are legitimately involved in small-scale mining but galamsey I doubt any of my executives will have himself involved”.

The issue of galamsey has been topical in recent times especially when the Asantehene Otumfuo Osei Tutu II waded into the topic and quizzed why government’s numerous fights on galamsey have proven futile.

Ghanaians Are Suffering Everyday Under Our Economic Situation Worse – John Mahama

Former President, John Dramani Mahama who also doubles as the leader of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) has once again lamented the country’s economic woes.

Mr. Mahama in a Twitter post on Tuesday noted that the economic situation is “distressing” and getting worse by the day.

The NDC flagbearer for the 2020 elections called on the government to, promptly and with eagerness, secure a programme from the IMF to stabilize the country’s economy.

“Distressing! Every passing day makes our economic situation worse. Gov’t must work with greater alacrity to lock in a programme with the Fund in order to create a more predictable economic outlook,” John Mahama tweeted on Tuesday.

Meanwhile, Rating agency, Moody’s has downgraded Ghana’s long-term issuer and senior unsecured debt ratings to CAA2 from CAA1 and placed the ratings on review for downgrade.

The rating downgrade to CAA2, it said, reflects the recent macroeconomic deterioration, further heightening the government’s liquidity and debt sustainability difficulties and increasing the risk of default.

This follows the recent downgrade of Ghana’s credit rating to ‘CC’ from ‘CCC’ by Fitch.
