‘Prez Akufo Addo and Bawumia Have A PhD In Lies And Deceit’ – NDC national organizer

Published

on

Joshua Hamidu Akamba, national organizer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), has claimed that President Akufo Addo and Bawumia are experts at deceiving Ghanaians.
According to Akamba, his description of Ghana’s first and second gentlemen as dishonest men is appropriate given the NPP government’s failure to deliver on its promises to the electorate.

His remarks follow the President’s refund of GH238,000 to the Controller and Accountant General’s Department.

The funds represent his salary increase as a result of the recommendations of the Presidential Emoluments Committee, which is chaired by Prof. Yaa Ntiamoa-Baidu.

Following the constant lies of Ghana’s incumbent president and his right-hand man, Bawumia, Joshua Akamba made the above-mentioned assertion in an interview on Accra-based Neat FM.

They are “specialists in deception and lies.”

“How long did he [President Nana Addo] take to refund that money? Was it [Money] not showing up in his account?” he inquired.

She explained further that her outfit was opened to help address the concerns of the general public and their inability to register their SIM cards.

“We acknowledge that there are some people who actually did the stage where they actually linked the sim to the Ghana card but unfortunately, after doing that their Ghana card were either lost, damaged or through no fault of theirs, they could not proceed to do stage two.

“So, for these people, we have actually asked that they should engage the NCA by calling our toll-free number. After we do an investigation and verify the issue, these people will also be put on the exclusion list pending them getting their Ghana cards reissued to them,” she told the host.

Meanwhile, AirtelTigo has announced that all SIM cards that are not fully registered on its network as of November 30 2022, will be blocked from accessing all services.

He stated that the current transportation fares would remain unchanged.

“We are aware that the cost of fuel has decreased. We would desire to reduce transportation fares, but we are not prepared to do so. We will not even lower fares by one pesewa. There has been no change. As a result, we are unwilling to lower transportation fares.”

“If a thief steals from you and you chase him down and he gives you back some of what he stole from you, do you celebrate and clap for him?” he asked.

Hopeson Adorye Recounts How He Was Sacked From National Security

Published

on


A one-time parliamentary aspirant of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) for Kpone Katamanso, Hopeson Adorye, has refuted news publications that his removal from the National Security Secretariat was because he was not supposed to be working there after he was fired in 2017.

Hopeson Adorye

Speaking in an Okay FM interview, Hopeson Adorye said that the sack letter he received was dated November 17, 2022.

Adorye, who was previously the Deputy National Security Coordinator in Charge of Airports, added that the reasons for his sacking were not stated in the letter because it was President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo who ordered his dismissal.

“The news publication is wrong. Why will someone be sacked and leave his post after 4 years? What happened was that in 2017, I had to leave my post at the airport and go back to the ‘blue gate’ because the security at the VIP section of the airport, which the National Security was in charge of, was being taken over by the Foreign Affairs Ministry. I was never sacked; what ‘The Herald’ is saying is false,” he explained in Twi.

“How can one person be sacked from the same job twice? Tomorrow will be exactly two weeks since I received the letter indicating my appointment had been terminated with immediate effect. The letter was dated 17th November 2022 and I received the letter on 21st November, a day after my birthday,” he added.

He added that many elders of the NPP have advised him not to talk about the circumstances surrounding his dismissal, and he will for now heed their advice.
Hopeson Adorye had previously announced on live radio this week that he had been fired from his government job.

He said during a discussion on Oman FM’s Boiling Point programme, on which he is a regular guest, that he had been fired purposefully because of his support for Alan Kyerematen.

Adorye is a vocal supporter of the Trade and Industry Minister in respect of the minister’s rumoured bid to lead the NPP as flagbearer when elections take place next year.

“God will cater for us; we will eat, Uncle (referring to the show host); God has got us. How we toiled in opposition for Akufo-Addo to come to power, we will do same for Alan Kwadwo Kyerematen to come.

“I’m not a zombie, uncle, I was told that my support is not towards a particular camp, so I should be dismissed. I have been dismissed. ‘Your appointment has been terminated with immediate effect.’ That is why I am stressing that God will cater for us; we will never die,” he stressed.
