He Must Be Removed Else I Will Stop Following You-Angry Kelvin Taylor Tells NDC

Published

on

Politics in Ghana was one of the most talked about topics that took center stage day and day out. The results of the general elections and the election of the new Speaker of Parliament during the dissolution of the 7th and the beginning of the 8th Parliament have given rise to many reports. It was a night of drama, confusion, and unexpected Parliament House incidents, and Ghanaians have condemned many of these incidents.

An effort by an NPP Member of Parliament for Tema West, Honorable Carlos Ahenkorah, to steal an uncounted ballot paper to mar the elections, was one issue that put Ghanaians in disbelief. Many public figures in Ghana, including John Dramani Mahama and other officials, have given outright condemnation of his actions and have called for a swift investigation and punishment.

Kelvin Ekow Taylor, a Ghanaian-based American investigative journalist, has also increased pressure on the NDC Caucus in Parliament and the Speaker of Parliament over the actions of Carlos Ahenkorah. He called upon the NDC MPs to disallow the MP from entering Parliament in what he described as a disappointing development. He has argued that his behavior is a gross misconduct and discredits the name of the August Estate.

Speaking last night on his televised With All Due Respect Show, he clarified that Ghanaians are watching the reactions of the NDC to the case to pass a final judgment on the legitimacy of the Parliament’s NDC Caucus. He would stop following the NDC and Mahama if they fail to fight for the expulsion of Carlos from the 8th Parliament, according to Kelvin Taylor.

“Carlos Ahenkorah has disappointed Ghanaians and his constituency. What he did was totally lawlessness, and it must be condemned with immediate action. How can Lawmakers flout the same law they made? This is becoming apparent in Ghana. He must be sanctioned to serve as a deterrent to others.”

He added, “Even his constituents do not him as their leader because he has disappointed them how much more do you think Ghanaians need his services as a Parliamentarian. Haruna Iddrisu, Okudzeto Ablakwa, Hon. Muntaka you must stand up and teach him the law. I will stop following you if you allow him to enter Parliament. Carlos Ahenkorah must be removed else I will stop following you.”

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.”
