My Core Message Is That NDC Is Winning 2024 Elections – Elvis Afriyie Ankrah

National Democratic Congress (NDC) General Secretary Aspirant, Elvis Afriyie Ankrah, says he believes he has the leadership skills and qualities needed to unite and motivate party members towards victory in the 2024 General Elections.

According to him, his campaign’s core message is that the NDC is winning the 2024 elections and he is prepared to deliver that victory with the support of party members.

Speaking on JoyNews’ PM Express on his tactic to win the 2024 General Elections, he mentioned that he would do so by actively motivating party members through structuring and restructuring and through programmes to prepare them towards the elections.

“I do motivation, you know that. That’s what I do. And there are principles in leadership, and it’s called synergy. I’ve been at the forefront of every single election. For you to win an election you need to get majority of the people 90, 95% of the people ready and willing and hungry to die a little for the party.

“Now in 2020 we were up there, very very energized that we were going to win. After the elections, after the results people became demotivated, people became depressed, demoralized.

“There’s a way in which you must get all those people re-ernegised and give them hope that come 2024 we’re going to cross the mark and you need somebody who can pull everybody together ‘come on let’s go, don’t sit on the fence, don’t be tired. Let’s go and get it. Let’s go and finish what we started’ so that is it,” he said.

Afriyie Ankrah says he is very much convinced that victory will come to the NDC in the 2024 elections and that the opportunity is his to lead the party to that victory.

“With the evolution of time, I look at the circumstances and I work a lot based on conviction. I am very convinced that this 2024 is a must-win for us.

“And if the opportunity has come for me to offer myself based on my track record, my experience, my ability to work with people, you know all kinds of people that’s one of my biggest strengths. I am able to work with everybody, pull everybody along and get them on a trajectory for success and victory why not?” he said.

Denounce Akamba; He Does Not Deserve To Be National Organizer – Blakk Rasta To NDC

Denounce Akamba; He Does Not Deserve To Be National Organizer – Blakk Rasta To NDC

Popular Radio Host and Musician, Blakk Rasta has tasked the National Democratic Congress (NDC) to disown pronouncement by its National Organizer, Joshua Akamba.

His call is as a result of comments made by Mr. Akamba suggesting the NDC made a mistake in firing Victoria Hamah for allegedly seeking to amass wealth.

Speaking on Kumasi based Ultimate FM Mr. Akamba said the party on hindsight would have retained the deputy minister and not acted on the pressure from the NPP.

“I think she was not given a fair treatment; I know Vicky as an honest woman, everybody aspires to make some money, she didn’t say I have made or there was no evidence that I have stolen, yet again we listened to the NPP and took that action.

“It was the NPP that pushed this action, directed our action, today I can tell you that Vicky cannot be a corrupt person, I know her. She is still an active member; I think she even contested Kintampo North or West.” He said.

But Blakk Rasta is least pleased about the comments of the National Organizer.

According to him, such comments should not be encouraged and could cost the party and its possible flagbearer John Dramani Mahama.

He predicts that the comment from Joshua Akamba could work against the fortunes of John Mahama and the NDC in the 2024 elections.

“These are the people who will make sure Mahama will not become president again. For this guy alone, Mahama will lose a million votes in the next elections. If I were the NDC, I would kick out this guy called Akamba right now.

Adding that, “the reason for which Victoria Hamah was kicked out, this guy is endorsing the same. You are in government and heard on tape saying that all you want is one million dollars and that is it. It’s not about the people you promised to serve, it is no more about the nation. It has nothing to do with the nation but your ego and selfishness of enriching yourself.

“You sit here and tell me Victoria Hamah was offered a raw deal. Such a fool. This guy is supposed to be who? National Organizer? The NDC should come out and denounced this guy and distance itself from his comments. I’m angry at this thing that I’m reading.” Blakk Rasta fumed on his show.

Ghana Will Not Recognize Any Ukraine Territory Annexed By Russia : Foreign Affairs Minister

Ghana Will Not Recognize Any Ukraine Territory Annexed By Russia : Foreign Affairs Minister

Minister for Foreign Affairs and Regional Integration, Shirley Ayorkor Botchwey, says Ghana will not recognize any annexation of Ukrainian territories by the Russian Federation.

Addressing a special meeting of the United Nations (UN) Security Council on the maintenance of the peace and security of Ukraine in New York City today Thursday 22 September 2022, Shirley Ayorkor Botchwey noted that Ghana remains committed to its position that the Russian invasion of Ukraine is in breach of international law and unjustified.

“We have expressed several times our principled position against the aggression on Ukraine which we consider to be a disregard for the rules of international law and the principles of the charter (UN Charter).
Ukraine as a sovereign state and a member of this organization (UN) has every right, we believe, and indeed a responsibility to defend its territorial integrity and political independence,” Foreign Minister Shirley Ayorkor Botchwey said.

“Ghana does not, and will not recognize any territory that is unilaterally and forcefully acquired as dismembered from a sovereign entity,” Miss Botchwey added.

Cease fire

In her statement, the Minister for Foreign Affairs and Regional Integration reiterated Ghana’s call on the Russian Federation, to “immediately and unconditionally cease its operations, withdraw its troops from the internationally recognized borders of Ukraine”, and respect its western neighbour’s “sovereignty and political independence.”

“The need for a credible pathway for a genuine diplomatic process is urgent. The barrel of the gun does not provide such a pathway. It only leads to needless loss of lives and destruction on both sides. Indeed, the cost of the war has been high, not only for the parties, but also for the rest of the world,” Shirley Ayorkor Botchwey said.

Proposed referenda

After stunning battlefield setbacks in the last two weeks, Russia moved to cement its grip on territory it occupies in eastern and southern Ukraine (Zaporizhzhia, Kherson, Donetsk and Luhansk) as Kremlin proxies and associates announced plans on Tuesday 21 September 2022, for referendums on annexation to Russia, indicating a possible escalation of the seven-month-old war.

The Kremlin signaled that if Russia were to go forward with annexation, even if no other country recognized it, any further military action by Ukraine in those regions would be seen as an attack on Russia itself, justifying any military response by the nation with the world’s largest nuclear arsenal.

Partial mobilization

In what is seen by several international law experts as an escalation of Russia’s war in Ukraine, President Vladimir Putin, announced on Tuesday 21 September 2022, a “partial mobilization” of Russian citizens in what would see 300,000 reservists called up, according to the Defence Minister of Russia, Sergei Shoigu.

Putin in his announcement said those with military experience would be subject to conscription, and stressed that the decree, which was already signed, was necessary to “protect our homeland, its sovereignty and its territorial integrity.” The announcement by Putin has been received with widespread protests in Russia as some have sought to flee the country to escape the impending conscription.
