Government Deliberately Sponsoring Attacks On John Mahama – Joyce Bawa

Published

on


The President Akufo-Addo administration has launched an attack against former president John Dramani Mahama in a bid to destroy his persona, Joyce Bawa Mogtari, aide to the former president has alleged.

According to her, the Daily Statesman and Daily Guide Newspaper publications alleging that John Mahama has partnered some officials of the Ghana Education Service, the Bureau of National Investigations and faceless South Africans to frustrate government’s effort to implement the free SHS policy cannot be true.

She wrote on Facebook, “How is it possible, for a person who does not control government’s kitty to make it impossible for the government to implement its policy initiative?”

Read the full statement below:

A government-sponsored attack has been launched on HE John Dramani Mahama, former President of the Republic of Ghana, based on a deliberately concocted lie, that the former president is working to scuttle the government’s free secondary education policy.

Two pro-government and pro-NPP newspapers, Daily Statesman and Daily Guide, together with sponsored leaflets in circulation in the Ashanti Region claim that Mr. Mahama is working with some officials of the Ghana Education Service (GES), the Bureau of National Investigations (BNI) and some faceless South Africans to make it impossible for the Nana Akufo-Addo Government to implement its free SHS promise.

How is it possible, for a person who does not control government’s kitty to make it impossible for the government to implement its policy initiative?

It is obviously evident, as previously noted by the National Democratic Congress (NDC) Minority in Parliament, that government has no plans and has outlined none on how it is going to fulfil the many promises it made to the people of Ghana.

The publication and circulation of this syndicated story, which has no merit, is concocted, and which also debases the intelligence and character of officials of the GES and BNI, is nothing but a diversionary tactic.

Government has huge challenges with implementing a campaign promise to make education at the Senior High School level free for all students, both day and boarders, and starting from the next academic year.

But this attempt to begin a careful process of accusing the former President and hopefully blame him for what was a clear deceit of the Ghanaian Voter, SHS students and their parents will not succeed.

Did government make adequate budgetary allocations in its 2017 Budget for the implementation of the promise, and the many others it made during the campaign period?

How can it be HE John Mahama’s fault that government has failed woefully to align its lofty promises with practice and adequate financial allocation?

Will all Ghanaian students in SHS and those who will be entering SHS One in September enjoy free education? Government should boldly answer that question and find answers for parents instead of plotting and sponsoring attacks on the former President.

As President, HE John Mahama demonstrated his commitment to the accelerated and multi-faceted development of our nation.

He had a clear focus on expanding the country’s economic and social infrastructure and also worked to actualise his vision of expanding access to secondary education and also to quality healthcare across the country.

The start of work on 200 Community Day Senior High Schools, implementation of a $156 million Secondary Education Improvement Programme (SEIP), implementation of a Progressively Free S.H.S. Programme in 2015, start of work to expand infrastructure in our technical and vocational institutions among others are evidence of his work.

These critical interventions in access, quality and affordability ensured both increased enrolment and enhanced performance in the West African Senior Secondary Certificate Examinations (WASSCE) results.

I will not want to delve into concerns that President Nana Akufo-Addo may have embarked on a deliberate game of deception and actually lacks commitment to the things he said during the campaign.

The government-sponsored syndication of this concocted story by two newspapers aligned to President Nana Akufo-Addo as a person, coming just days after his meeting with all living former Presidents of Ghana is yet another demonstration of a betrayal of trust by the President.

Like every good leader, H.E John Dramani Mahama remains a true Ghanaian and will support any efforts towards the growth of our country.

The John Mahama legacy of rapid economic and social development, gradual transformation of the economy, the impressive and massive revamping, and expansion of infrastructure across the country, is solid, has been proven and recognized by all Ghanaians and many outside our country.

NPP Finally Reinstates Kwabena Agyepong As Member

Published

on


The National Executive Council of the New Patriotic Party has reinstated former General Secretary, Mr. Kwabena Agyepong who had been suspended as a member of the party for about six years.

This decision was made by the NPP after Mr Agyepong wrote to the Executive Council, pleading with them to reconsider their decision to suspend him.

Mr Kwabena Agyepong, together with then party chairman, Paul Afoko, and National Vice Chairman, Sammy Crabbe were suspended in the run-up to the 2016 elections on claims of working against party interest.

Of all the three who were suspended, Mr Kwabena Agyepong is clearly the one who has demonstrated utmost commitment to the cause of the Party as he was seen campaigning for the Party in the 2020 elections.

There have been rumours that President Akufo-Addo intends to appoint Mr Agyepong into his government.

Akufo-Addo Is Worst Than ‘Intolerant’ Idi Amin – NDC’s Joshua Akamba

Published

on


National Organizer of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Joshua Akamba has branded President Akufo-Addo as the most intolerant leader, surpassing Ugandan dictator, Idi Amin.

Citing the Ayawaso West Wuogon violence, he questioned why the President refused to implement the recommendations made afterwards and have been silent on other violent situations in the country.

“President Akufo-Addo is going to leave a legacy of dictatorship. He is worst off than Idi Amin. Idi Amin was a military ruler, but we have a civilian rule in Ghana, and yet, what kind of human rights lawyer do we have as a leader? We witnessed the Ayawaso West Wuogon saga, and yet the President failed to implement the recommendations. In a modern democracy, if we have a leader preventing people from expressing their views; we have journalists killed, and if we have others sacked for expressing their views, then we can say he is worst off than Idi Amin and Sadam Hussein,” Akamba was quoted by rainbowradioonline.

Gov’t Telling Ghanaians To Fix Themselves Because They Rigged The Elections – Apaak

Published

on


Lawmaker for Builsa South, Clement Apaak says although the ruling government managed to rig the 2020 polls to remain in power, they remain largely aggrieved that Ghanaians outrightly rejected them.

For this reason, according to him, the government keeps telling the people to fix themselves after several calls on them to fix the country amidst rising cost of living and other societal issues.

He said President Akufo-Addo is not a legitimate leader because the 2020 polls was rigged in his favour.

”#FixTheCountry Ghanaians say. The President and his government say #Fixyourself! Why should anyone be surprised, the President knows the power he holds is illegitimate, it was procured fraudulently. Ghanaians didn’t vote for him, hence #Fixyourself!,” he said.
