Charlotte Osei Criticizes Ghana’s Politics, Describes It As ‘Extremely Petty’

Published

on


Former Chairperson of the Electoral Commission, Charlotte Osei has criticized the state of Ghana’s politics, saying it is dominated by pettiness.

Speaking on the KSM Show on Metro TV, Mrs Osei said she is worried about the situation because pettiness in politics kills the national purpose and is an “unworthy distraction”.

“It’s always this one has done this, and this one said that, and 20 years ago this one…oh…I can’t [deal with this]…

“It is not for the want of knowledge. We know better. We don’t need advice. It is a choice we have made,” she said.

She noted that “rabid partisanship” in Ghana’s politics is getting toxic for the future of the country’s democracy.

“We are all drowning in the waters of this toxic partisanship but for some reason, we still continue. Leaders and followers alike,” she observed.

According to her, she is baffled that the partisanship in Ghana’s politics has continued for so long because it really does not benefit any particular person or group of persons.

“Really who enjoys this? Because we are avoiding the big issues and the big decisions and when everything is reduced to the level of partisan politics then we are even unsure of the decisions that are being taken because we don’t know what the basis is…and it is worrying,” she stated.

“I think we should be concerned. Especially for future generations,” she added.

She is convinced, however, that all is not lost.

“But I do still see a glimmer of hope. With the younger ones, I see hope. I try and follow their debates on social media and I think they are less partisan,” she noted.

Voter’s Register: Timely Intervention Of Muntaka Saves 7 ‘NPP Minors’ From Severe Beatings In Asawase

Published

on


Seven JHS Students who were allegedly bused by a tutor Bismark Okyere to register in the Asawase Constituency have been arrested after protests from NDC polling agents.

One student was first arrested when he was spotted in a queue attempting to register. The student upon sensing danger following the anger of the NDC supporters at the registration center attempted to run but luck eluded him when he was apprehended.

The timely intervention of the Incumbent NDC MP for the Area, Muntaka Mubarak prevented what would have been an unfortunate lynching by the vigilant NDC agents.

The student then confessed he was bused to the registration center by his teacher with 20 other final year students. He quickly pointed 6 other students who were already in queue to register. They were also arrested.

Carlos Ahenkorah Must Be Prosecuted – Asiedu Nketia Spits More Fire

Published

on


The General Secretary of the opposition National Democratic Congress, Johnson Asiedu Nketia has laughed off President Akufo-Addo’s decision to let MP for Tema West, Carlos Ahenkorah off the hook because he has resigned.

According to General Mosquito, the resignation of the Member of Parliament for Tema West is not punitive enough for the harm he allegedly caused.

Carlos Ahenkorah resigned from his deputy ministerial position following severe backlash after admitting he breached COVID-19 protocols by visiting a registration centre despite being aware that he had tested positive for the virus.

In a Citi News interview during his tour of Voter Registration Exercise in the Volta Region, Johnson Asiedu Nketia said the prosecution of the former Deputy Minister is the only way to show the government’s commitment to evenhandedly deal with offenders of the Coronavirus safety rules.

“There are positive cases identified at the Presidency, but nothing is happening. There have been positive cases identified in the house of Parliament, but Parliament is still sitting. Even when one case was identified in a factory, they close the factory down. You go to the hospitals, and when one case is identified, they close the ward down. Now in the House of Parliament where all these laws are made, they identified more than 13 cases in Parliament, and they are still sitting because they have to wait to pass laws to make Nana Akufo-Addo continue as President.” He said.

OccupyGhana Calls For Prosecution Against Carlos Ahenkorah

Published

on


Pressure group, OccupyGhana has called on the Ghana Police to launch an investigation into Carlos Ahenkorah’s Covid-19 gaffe and prosecute him if found guilty.

In a statement issued on Friday July 3, 2020, the group expressed their disappointment with Mr Ahenkorah for abandoning isolation and coming out to public space knowing very well he has the Coronavirus.

“He has admitted that after testing positive for COVID-19, and before obtaining a subsequent negative test, he recklessly and callously put himself in the public space, visiting registration centres in the Tema West Constituency.

“By this, he put his fellow citizens at such high risk of contracting the coronavirus disease. As a minister of state of a government that is battling hard against this pandemic, he has shown a remarkable lack of good sense on the social and physical distancing that is required by law, on the pain of criminal prosecution,” the statement read.

Aside his resignation, the group wants an investigation and possible prosecution if found guilty.

It further asked the New Patriotic Party to make him stand down as their Parliamentary candidate.

“We also call on the New Patriotic Party to withdraw him as their candidate for the upcoming parliamentary elections,” the group demanded.
