Agayapa Deal: NPP Will One Day Sell Ghana If Not Booted Out In 2020 Polls — Sammy Gyamfi

Published

on


The National Communication Officer of the NDC, Sammy Gyamfi has wade into the Agyapa Royalties deal.

According to him in a statement, ‘the Special Prosecutor found out what the NDC and many patriotic CSOs have always known about the stinking Agyapa Deal”.

He went on to say that Ghanaians cannot give the NPP another four more years to steal more from the state. He went ahead to mention some of the scandals of the NPP including BostGate, PDS, AMERI among others.

He warned that if this criminal enterprise [NPP] will one day sell Ghana itself hence the need to boot them out coming December 7th.

Below is his full statement;

Folks, the Special Prosecutor, Martin Amidu has only found out what we in the NDC, and many patriotic CSOs like IMANI, ISODEC, PIAC, ASEPA, GII, IDEG, and others, have always known about the stinking “Agyapa” Deal.

The NDC has maintained throughout, that the “Agyapa” deal is laden with illegalities, greed, corruption, cronyism and state-capture. This is why the NDC minority boycotted the approval of the deal in Parliament. And this is why, our leader, H.E John Dramani Mahama and the party have vehemently opposed the deal right from the outset.

The fact that President Akufo-Addo has affirmed his confidence in his cousin the Finance Minister, even in the face of overwhelming evidence of corruption against him, confirms his complicity in this whole “Agyapa” heist. We in the NDC are not in the least surprised by this, because this is exactly what nepotism does to a country. It weakens the will and ability of leaders to crack the whip on their errant and corrupt appointees. Fact is, nepotism and corruption are inseparable bed-fellows. The former will always breed the latter.

What we should be interested in as a country at this stage, is for President Akufo-Addo to first and foremost, retrieve for the state, the billions of taxpayers monies that have been paid to Databank, which is owned by his cousin and Finance Minister, Ken Ofori Atta and African Legal Associates, which is owned by another cousin of his, Gabby Otchere Darko and their cronies under the “Agyapa” transaction. Since the deal is null and void for illegality, all payments made under same to Databank, African legal associates and their cronies are void and must be refunded to the state. You cannot put something on nothing and expect it to stand (nemo dat quod non habet). We need our money now!

Secondly, if President Akufo-Addo has any integrity left, he must suspend with immediate effect, the Finance Minister, Ken Ofori Atta, his Deputy, Charles Adu Boahen and all his officials who are directly or indirectly involved in the stinking “Agyapa” heist, pending criminal investigations into the scandal. Procurement rigging and money laundering are serious crimes which cannot be addressed by Parliament but rather, our criminal justice system. That is what any truly incorruptible President will do under the circumstances. Don’t forget, that some people are currently languishing in jail for similar procurement breaches.

In fact, I wonder why the OSP has not charged the finance minister and his deputy for their violation of the Public Procurement Law yet? The OSP is mandated by law to investigate and prosecute among other offenses, procurement breaches. So What is Martin Amidu waiting for?

Friends, there is no gainsaying the fact that, the “Agyapa” deal is a serious indictment on the integrity and judgment of President Akufo-Addo, his government, the NPP and all their surrogates who supported the deal, in spite of the existence of overwhelming evidence that showed that the deal was fraught with illegalities, cronyism, greed, thievery and corruption.

The call by President Akufo-Addo to have this matter deferred until after the elections clearly shows that he has no interest in safeguarding the resources of this country and has not given up on this “Agyapa” heist yet. All he dreams of is four more years to steal more and advance his family’s rape of the nation’s resources.

Certainly, Akufo Addo and the NPP cannot be trusted with another mandate to protect and manage the resources of this country. We cannot give them four more years, to steal more from the state. First, it was the BOSTGATE scandal, then the AMERI novation scandal, then came PDS scam, then PPA Contracts for sale scandal, and now Agyapa. This criminal enterprise will one day sell Ghana itself if they are not booted out of office on 7th December, 2020.

May God bless the NDC Minority and all CSOs and media personalities who courageously stood against this broad-daylight “Agyapa” heist. Future generations will salute our diligence and patriotism.

(National Communication Officer, NDC)

Full Story: Asantehene Destools Dompoasehene Over Financial Impropriety, Other Charges

Published

on


Okofo Sobin Kan II, Dompoasehene– Adansi; was destooled yesterday, Thursday December 3, 2020, by Otumfoɔ Osɛi Tutu II, Asantehene.

The charges brought against Nana Dompoasehene were numerous and damaging. They included charges of financial impropriety, and embezzlement of Stool Revenue.

Nana Dompoasehene was also charged with misuse of Funds raised through special fundraising efforts such as community ‘harvests,’ which were then deposited in a Bank under agreed-upon Dompoase account, intended for specific community projects.

The Chief is said to have surreptitiously removed the money into his own personal bank account, without the knowledge or approval of the people. He was charged with misrule and tyranny; he did not consult his sub-Chiefs in taking decisions and did not respect their opinion. He was therefore accused of being tyrannical towards his counsellors and people.

Even more damaging was the accusation of engaging in sexual improprieties with the wives of a sub-Chief, and wives of his subjects. More disturbing was that he did so ‘by physically overpowering’ the women.

In the Twi words; “Na ɔto mɔnaa”. This is a serious charge that constitutes a flagrant crime, that potentially could lead to an uprising. Significantly, it is one of Ɔkomfo Anokye’s laws. It was one of the charges, among many that were levelled against then Asantehene Mensa Bonsu in his destoolment hearing in 1883 which led to his destoolment as occupant of the golden stool.

The Dompoasehene’s sub-Chiefs, therefore, concluded that they could no longer serve him as their Chief. As a result, all the Kumase Traditional divisions (FEKUO) (e.g. Konti; Akwamu; Gyaase; Nifa, Benkum); all agreed with the decision made by the Dompoase sub-Chiefs.

Otumfuo Santehene, in summation, agreed with the decision. The chief linguist of the Asantehene, Okyeame Kantankrankyi then ordered Otumfoɔ Brempɔn, Okofo Sobin Kan II’s Sandals to be removed. That signalled his ignominious end. He was thenceforth no longer Ɔbrempɔn Dompoasehene.

Dompoase is among a number of towns in Adansi that owe direct allegiance to Kumase, and therefore serve Kumaseman as Otumfuo Abrempon.

After Ntim Gyakari, Dankyirahene laid Adansi to waste, Abu Bonsra, Adansihene fled to Akyem with dozens of his Chiefs and their people. Following the defeat of Dankyira in 1701 by the “ASANTE” fighters, Osei Tutu Ɔpemsoɔ, who became the first Asantehene, asked all those who had fled from the tyranny of Bɔ Amponsem and Ntim Gyakari of Dankyira, to return, and rebuild their States and towns.

In the case of Adansi, Osɛi Tutu gave the name “Afriyie”, meaning one who had arrived at an opportune, propitious moment. Osei Tutu Beyɛɛman had given Adansiman its Freedom. So the Adansihene became known as Bonsra Afriyie.

Muslim Women ‘Attack’ Samira Bawumia Over What They Call “Her Inappropriate Dressing”

Published

on


A group of Muslim women known as Hijabbis have expressed their displeasure with the mode of dressing of the second lady, Mrs Samira Bawumia.

According to the group, the second lady, by virtue of her position, is supposed to be a role model of young Islamic ladies, however, her mode of dressing does the direct opposite.

Speaking at a press conference, the leader of the group, Hajia Mariam Abubakar explained that out of more than 6, 000 verses in the Quran, about half a dozen refer specifically to the way a woman should dress or walk in the public.

According to Hajia Abubakar, the clearest verse on the requirement of modest dress is Surah 24:31, telling women to guard their private parts and draw their Khimar over their bosom.

“As Muslims, the rule of dress for women is modest; the word HIJAB means “ Cover” and refers to a specific form of veil worn by some Muslim women”. She said.

“H.E Hajia Samira Bawumia who is supposed to be a role model to our Muslim youth have decided to dress like a model and a fashion Icon exposing her feminine attractions to men which have influenced their Muslim girls and women to do same. She added”.

The group also expressed disappointment in the second lady and her husband for what they term as failing to uphold the principles of Islam, even though this was what informed the decision of the Islam constituency to vote for the NPP in 2016.

Flashback 2017: How Islamic Cleric Predicted That Donald Trump And Akufo-Addo Will Be One Term Presidents

Published

on


An Islamic cleric and numerologist, Mallam Sham Una Ustaz Jibril prophesied in 2017 that Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo and his US counterpart, Donald Trump will be one-term presidents.

In a Ghanaweb publication in 2017, Mallam Sham Una also said that Akufo-Addo and Donald Trump securing second terms as presidents depended on the fortunes of Nigerian president, Muhamadu Buhari because the three have the same star and also share the same spiritual destiny in the spiritual world.

He also predicted amongst other things, an abrupt end to Buhari’s first term in office through resignation, coup d’etat, or loss of the 2019 election.

His prediction about the Nigerian President did not come to pass though as President Muhamadu Buhari retained his seat in the 2019 Nigerian Elections.

However, his prediction about US President Donald Trump appears to have come to pass, barring any extreme judicial review.

It remains to be seen what will happen with President Akufo-Addo as Ghana heads to the polls on December 7th.
