Refunding The Money Alone Is Not Enough,She Must Face The Court – Asiedu Nkatia Boldly Speaks

Published

on

Johnson Asiedu Nketiah, General Secretary of the NDC, has revealed that First Lady Rebecca Akufo-Addo may face court action for taking illegal payments if the money she has refunded is what the Ntiamoah Baido’s Committee recommended.

Asiedu Nketiah made this statement on ‘THE GUMBE SHOW’ on XYZ television yesterday, July 13th, 2021, when he discussed Rebecca Akufo-refunded Addo’s salaries.

According to him, we need to ask Rebecca Akufo-Addo if the money she refunded is the same as the money Kojo Oppong Nkrumah mentioned or if it is different money because Kojo Oppong Nkrumah told us they would pay her and backdate it from 2017.

“She has paid a refund that dates back to 2017.” Is her refund different from what Kojo Oppong Nkrumah said? We need her to explain herself. What did the Minister say? He stated that the government will pay their salaries and backdate them to 2017. This means that the money mentioned by the minister has not yet been paid.

So, how much money has Rebecca Akufo-Addo refunded? If the refund matches what Kojo Oppong Nkrumah told us, she received illegal money, and if it is illegal money, the refund is insufficient, and she must face the court.”

He also stated that she has been receiving that payment for the past five years. Would she have refunded the money if she hadn’t been publicly chastised for it?

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.
