Trouble As Special Prosecutor Asked To Arrest John Mahama

Special prosecutor Lawyer Kissi Agyebeng has been asked to arrest former president John Mahama. This call was placed by a popular Ghanaian chief in the Eastern region called Nana Ateaoso Kokobeng II.

The member of the regional house of chiefs made the urgent call after the special prosecutor fined Labianca Company Limited to refund to the sate an amount of one million Ghana Cedis being tax evasion on the part of the company.

It will be recalled that the special prosecutor has been in the news both traditional and social media of late following a report he released on above subject. According to the report, Labianca company owned by Miss Eunice Jacqueline Buah Asomah, who is a member of the council of state representing the Western Region under declared it’s imported frozen chicken for five years. In addition to the fine, the special prosecutor started thorough investigation into the activities of Labianca at the ports between 2017 and 2022 for possible criminal prosecution.

But Nana Ateaoso Kokobeng ll surprisingly got offended at the action of the special prosecutor. According to him Lawyer Agyabeng is deliberately targeting NPP appointees while those in NDC are walking. He said John Mahamaa looted the state yet the special prosecutor is afraid to go after him. He challenged the lawyer to do the needful by arresting and prosecuting the former president before he takes him serious. Until then wherever the special prosecutor does will be considered a witch hunt to this chief.

I am very disappointed in the Special Prosecutor for chasing Labianca. Instead of him to arrest John Mahama for stealing a lot of Ghana’s monies he has left him and he is walking freely. If the SP has made up his mind that he will only attack NPP members then he will not succeed because the real criminals of the NDC are still walking free. I challenge him to arrest John Mahama. This is what he ought to do and not to go after the government that appointed him”, Nana Kokobeng stated in Twi on Wontumi radio.

Reactions

But the chief has been sweating after making that unpopular comment. Social Media is not taking it kindly with him at all. According individuals who reacted to the post, the chief is a disgrace to the chieftaincy institution. Some even called for his removal from the stool. Check some comments below.

Michael Nii Nortey: “A whole chief came out and spoke like this? I am highly disappointed in those who enstoled him as chief and he is a disgrace to where he comes from.

How can those we follow talk like this? He should resign from the stool or be removed immediately” 

Christopher Astu Gawuga: “I reserve my comment until further research into this matter. I am surprised if a chief can speak and make such utterances in that manner. So I will investigate this before any comment.”

Kingdavid Zisah: “Some of these men are stomach and uneducated selfish politicians. I think he need more education and advise so he can coil in his comments regarding the former president. Criminal Syndicators.”

Abdu Zango: “He’s part of those people that connived with the Akyem sakawa mother serpent and the ‘mate meho’ miscreants and let foreign mercenaries to train NPP vigilante fool soldiers in our forests together with some chiefs and the security agencies.”

Baba Omar: “Eeeeei Ghana where are we going as a country? Hmmmm. But I am not surprised because even a Supreme Court Judge campaigned for president re-election

In a related development, the owner of Loudsilence TV, Kelvin Tailor has alleged that the report from the special prosecutor is nothing but a cover up for the NPP government. He said the syndicate at the port goes beyond Labianca and that the chief of staff and other stakeholders are involved. The special prosecutor singled out Labianca in order to protect the Jubilee House.

He made these allegations on his ‘with all due respect’ show on LSTV monitored by CitizenOne. According to Kelvin, the amount the Special Prosecutor claimed to has retrieved is laughable. He disclosed that Labianca imports up to 30 containers of frozen chicken into the country every month. “But per the amount reportedly retrieved, the special prosecutor is telling us that between 2017 and now, Labianca imported just 10 containers”, he stated. Kelvin called on the CEO of Labianca to resign from council of state so she can come out with the whole truth.

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.
