Gov’t Denies Minority’s Claims of Secretly Recruiting Into Security Services

Published

on


 Minister of Interior, Ambrose Dery has refuted claims by the Minority that government is recruiting some 1,800 persons into the Ghana Police, Armed Forces and Immigration Services.

According to the minister, training schools have only asked recruits who passed to report after facilities were shut down due to the Covid-19.

There is no ongoing recruitment. There was recruitment where the processes were complied with before the Covid-19 pandemic. So what happened at the time was that some of the trainees had reported to school whole others were on the way but because of the pandemic the schools were closed down,” he said.

He explained that, “recently under the auspices of the Presidential taskforce for Covid-19, there has been a roadmap on the reopening of schools starting with final years in the universities. Subsequently, it came to senior high schools and now junior high schools. In that programme, the training schools for the security agencies were involved. So those successful candidates from the recruitment which took place before the pandemic were asked to start reporting.”

The Minority in Parliament had alleged that government had recruited 1,800 NPP supporters in the security agencies.

 “The last time the public witnessed a public advert in accordance with the constitution and the public services requirements and regulation was in 2017. So we are asking how come in 2018, 2019 and 2020 there is no official public recruitment advertised giving notice to Ghanaian citizens to prepare themselves for recruitment into these important state institutions and agencies,” Minority leader Haruna Iddrisu told the press.

I Laugh When NDC’s Running Mate Says Her Voter’s ID Was Duplicated, Is She More Important Than Rawlings? Koku Anyidoho Fires Again

Published

on


Former Deputy General Secretary of the opposition National Democratic Congress, Koku Anyidoho has fired another ‘missile’ at his party, this time directed at the Party’s running mate, Prof. Jane Naana Opoku Agyemang.

Koku Anyidoho, who has for some time now been virtually ostracized from the NDC, has consistently fired direct and indirect jabs at some of the Party’s leaders who he claims are trying to take over the party.

His latest jab, in the form of a Tweet read, “I laugh when I hear that the Running Mate of the Umbrella says her Voter ID was duplicated: Is she more important than the FOUNDER of the NDC?”.

His post comes a day after the NDC flagbearer, John Mahama addressed a press conference, in which he revealed that the Party’s running mate is among the thousands of people whose names have allegedly been taken out of the voter’s register, or have had their voter’s ID numbers duplicated.

It is unclear why Mr. Anyidoho roped in the name of the NDC founder to make his comparison.

‘There Is A Grand Scheme To Rig The Elections’ – Suhuyini Alleges

Published

on


Member of Parliament for Tamale North Constituency, Alhassan Sayibu Suhuyini has accused the Electoral Commission of deliberately scheming to rig the December 2020 polls in favour of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP).

According to him, the consistent flaws that have been associated with the work of the EC from the voters’ registration to exhibition exercise, is a clear indication that they are conspiring to rig the elections.

According to him, the short code that has been instituted by the EC to aid electorates verify their names is inaccurate, citing instances where people who had their names confirmed via the short code could not find their names when they went to verify in person.

“Do not rely on that short code because I know people who have checked with the short code and got feedback that their names were on the register but when they went to the polling station their names were not on the register.

“They got feedback using the short code that confirmed that they were on the register but they got to the polling stations itself and their names were not on the register. So let nobody rely on those short codes. Please make the time even if you do not have it to go and check to be sure that your name is on the register,” he said.

He added “All of these feed into the wieldy held perception that there is a grand scheme to rig the elections . On is major be an accident, two is a coincidence but you cannot tell me that three is not deliberate . When you begin to have so many reflags that are not dismissible , you cant easily dismiss them you don’t just continue to describe them as red flags .

“If you have a pattern of unexplainable happening especially around an election it will be fair for you to assume and conclude that there must be a deliberate attempt to either frustrate , to suppress of to rig.”

EC Has Given You Chances, Be Patient – CDD Tells Political Parties

Published

on


Head of Research at the Ghana Centre for Democratic Development (CDD-Ghana), Mr Mawuse Domevu has urged political parties to exercise patience as the Electoral Commission deals with anomalies cited in the voter exhibition roll.

Speaking on TV3’s The New Day, he noted that the commission has given assurances that they’ll fix the anomalies therefore it beholds on the parties to have patience.

“I think there are various opportunities that have been provided through the process that are set in motion by the EC. So I think I will urge the political parties that have issues to be patient. We will also urge the EC to also engage the political parties and try and bring all the parties involved.”

He added “The issue are a bit worrying. The missing names from a register is something that happens from time to time but given the magnitude of the cases that have been poured out of this particular exercise , it is a bit worrying.

“The EC has gone a step further by engaging the various stakeholders at the IPAC. They have given the assurance the issues in there will be fixed.

But we think that once they are given that assurance and they are working on getting these things fixed, it will be incumbent on them to from time to time give an update on what has actually transpired or the extent to which they have been able to get these issues resolved.”
