#Fixthecountry: You’re Behaving Like Drunkards – Ghana Gas PRO Fumes At Celebrities Involved In Ongoing Protest

Published

on


Head of Communication at Ghana National Gas Company, Ernest Owusu Bempah has launched a verbal attack on celebrities involved in the ongoing #fixthecountry online protest.

The protest which has seen some celebrity endorsements, is calling on government to as a matter of urgency address the rising cost of live and other social issues in the country.

Commenting on the development in a Facebook post, Ernest Kofi Bempah said: “the politics of attrition and patronage isn’t gonna help these social misfits and their backers. ”

“I have been holding myself back from getting into the gutter with these self-styled comedians who dabbles in social media politicking. Why do these “entertainers” think anybody really gives a crap about what they think?” Mr Bempah wrote.

He furthered: “The noise being generated by these so-called celebrities is akin to a drunken behaviour.”

Below is his full post

The temerity with which some so-called celebrities dabble in politics in this country amazes me at times. I just can’t get my head around it.

I have been holding myself back from getting into the gutter with these self-styled comedians who dabbles in social media politicking.
Why do these “entertainers” think anybody really gives a crap about what they think?

Of course this is the downside to social media; where below-average intelligence folks who can’t read and understand English want to teach the president how to govern.

The politics of attrition and patronage isn’t gonna help these social misfits and their backers.

President Akufo-Addo’s resilience, dynamism, organizational acumen and political astuteness is changing the game, and he is fixing both a pandemic and a country. Covid-19 has continue to devastate our beloved country like many other nations the world over. It is a process and the president is delivering on his mandate in the midst of the challenges facing us as a country.

The noise being generated by these so-called celebrities is akin to a drunken behaviour.

What exactly has these celebrities fixed by themselves apart from their fake social media lifestyle and living on borrowed glory?

Some of them can’t even fend for themselves let alone fix their boring life. They go about borrowing from people to support their fakery and some are in debts and can’t manage their lives and yet they are yelling at politicians?

These guys need to fix their backward lifestyle and build something for themselves and get a life.

Elsewhere in civilized countries, celebrities uses their leverage to embark on social responsibility projects to help their communities. We can talk of Madonna, Naomi Campbell, Iddris Elba who are using their status to support their communities and even here in Africa.

Let’s move away from these wretched comedians who call themselves celebrities and deal with the NDC politicians fueling this agitation.
Isn’t it even farcical to note that John Mahama who recklessly and irresponsibly ran a budget deficit of 12% GDP in 2012, and left an economy with a growth rate of 3.7%, the lowest ever in recent times is enabling these celebrities to yell about economic mismanagement?
Jesus Christ!

It took John Mahama administration three good years to recover from a mere budget overrun/deficit, culminating in the decision to run to the IMF for policy credibility. Akufo-Addo on other hand is dealing with worldwide pandemic and its ravaging effects. Even at that, Akufo-Addo’s management of the economy has been superb so far. The economy which hitherto had high inflation, a high budget deficit, a depreciating cedi and depleting gross international reserves has been totally turned around for the better. The Macroeconomic indices attest to this feat with several indicators showing fantastic results never achieved in Ghana’s history.
According to the revised GDP estimate released by the Ghana Statistical Service, the economy is also growing steadily.

Prudent fiscal measures by the Akufo-Addo regime have resulted in a sustainable inflation rate for over 15 months. Ghana is being adjudged by rating agencies as a global best performer in access to credit and also the best place to do business in West Africa. Ghana investment promotion council (GIPC) figures released shows an increase in projects registered at the GIPC amounting to over $7billion in foreign direct investment.

Until we begin to collectively fix ourselves, nothing will ever change in this country. Indeed, before we can fix the country, we have to fix ourselves. Our stinking attitude and mindset has generally contributed to our problems as a country.

Everything stops with us as the citizenry including the so-called celebrities.

If the politician is to fix the country we the citizenry have a lot of issues that need fixing.

Let’s fix our attitudes. Let’s fix the country and let all of us get a firm grip on ourselves.
I shall return.

Published

on


Social media users have lambasted First Lady, Rebecca Akufo-Addo after she posted a goodwill message on Father’s day to her husband, President Akufo-Addo claiming he has ‘sleepless’ nights because of the country.

Madam Rebecca wrote, “Over the last four years having watched and prayed for my husband as father of the nation, I have had a close view of the sleepless nights, the countless overstretches and the physical strain to make this country work.”

She added, “President Akufo-Addo remains a father we all would be proud of.”

However, Ghanaians on social media did not take the goodwill message lightly as they questioned why cost of living continue to inflate amidst the President’s so called sleepless nights.

IMPRESSIVE: Ghanaian University Students Build AI Traffic Light With Cameras To Help Tackle Crime

Published

on


Some students of the Mechatronics and Cybersecurity Department of the Koforidua Technical University have successfully installed a locally manufactured traffic light with Artificial Intelligence (AI) to help boost security and mitigate against crime on campus.

This came to the fore when the Vice Chancellor of the University called on the government to pay more attention and invest in the country’s technical universities to help them develop modern technological tools to help security agencies in fighting against crime.

In an interview with Citinews, Professor David Kofi Essuman explained the technology and rationale behind the new innovation.

“As part of requirements for final year students in the university, they take on projects which are normally supervised by their lecturers and some of these students came out with this project which is a locally built traffic light with cameras which is able to monitor everything within its scope and transfers live signals to the cybersecurity room on campus. The traffic has successfully been installed on campus and it is currently being used to check our security on campus”.

He continued, “Already, we have installed CCTV cameras and yet still, the robberies are going on so it means that we need to do more and advance more on that, to be able to pick up individuals who are involved in all these kinds of activities.”

“So it is our mission that, we are going to work in that direction to reduce crime in this country, and so we have just begun, and hope that as we travel along, we want to accept challenges. As a country, we need to ask ourselves where we want to be in the next five years, and what do we want to do with artificial intelligence?”.

“Once we have those concepts clear, it will guide us into how our research should go and how we can reduce the problems in this country. Crime is an issue, so we are going to focus on crime research and see how we can all help together to reduce and minimize the armed robbery that is happening in this country,” he concluded.
