‘Hypocrite’ Chief Justice Should Rather Be Dragged To Disciplinary Committee, Not Ayine – NDC MP

Published

on


Lawmaker for Tamale Central, Ibrahim Murtala Mohammed has slammed the Chief Justice for dragging Bolgatanga East MP, Dominic Ayine to the disciplinary committee of the Ghana Legal Council for some comments made.

Speaking to Citi TV, Murtala Mohammed said the Chief Justice, Kwasi Anin Yeboah is guilty for the same purpose of which he had dragged Ayine to the GLC.

According to him, the Chief Justice had also participated in programmes that sought to attack a decision made by Justices of the Supreme Court on a specific case.

“The hypocrisy of the Chief Justice is telling. Just a few weeks before this petition, the Chief Justice participated in a similar political programme that was considered to be attacking a decision made by the Justices of the Supreme Court. The purpose [of the programme] was to challenge the decision of the Supreme Court. I am just exposing the hypocrisy- that he participated in a programme that sought to attack the decision of the Supreme Court in the Re: Akoto case,” Murtala Muhammed explained.

Dr Ayine at a CDD roundtable discussion on ‘Presidential Election Petitions and their Impact on Africa’s Democracy’ reportedly questioned the independence of Ghana’s judiciary.

Dr Ayine said: “I expected the Supreme Court to apply faithfully the rules of procedure to – in terms of adducing evidence – prove the petitioner’s case and so on. What we saw was a Supreme Court that was constantly putting hurdles in the way of the petitioner in terms of adducing evidence to prove the petitioner’s case.

However, the statement did not go down well with the Chief Justice, Anin-Yeboah who referred to the General Legal Council for investigation comments made by the former deputy Attorney General.

Apply Wisdom In Your Borrowing And Stop Burdening Our Kids With Debts – NDC To Government

Published

on


The opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) has charged the government to prudently use monies they borrow.

Speaking at the Policy dialogue on the economy held in Accra on Monday, Dr. Cassiel Ato Forson said the ruling NPP is in a business of burdening the next generation with debt because they’re not investing wisely.

“Everyone borrows but please when you borrow, borrow smartly. Borrow not for chop chop but pay for things that can repay for itself. Even advanced countries borrow. When they borrow, they build infrastructure. They do things that can repay itself. They don’t borrow for chop chop and it is important we make that point.”

“What the NPP is seeking to do now is to actually give all of us, our kids, our generations a burden of carrying a public debt. A debt that when we are not careful, we cannot pay,” he added.

Mahama Should Have Been Jailed Like Jacob Zuma – Kofi Akpaloo

Published

on


Leader of the Liberal Party of Ghana, Percival Kofi Akpaloo has said that Former President Mahama should have been in jail by now.

According to him, if the former special prosecutor, Martin Amidu had balls, John Mahama would be in jail like former South African President, Jacob Zuma.

Jacob Zuma, served as South Africa’s President from 2009 to 2018, when he resigned under growing pressure from his party, the African National Congress (ANC), amid declining electoral support and public anger at corruption allegations during his tenure.

On June 29, the constitutional court sentenced Zuma to 15 months in jail for defying an instruction earlier in February to give evidence at an inquiry examining allegations of high-level corruption during his time in office.

It will be recalled that prior to election 2020, flagbearer of the NDC, and former President Mahama was cited in the infamous Airbus saga in which some persons were accused of bribes and kickbacks in the sale of aircrafts.

However, then special prosecutor, Martin Amidu said he could not investigate the former President because it was an election year and tensions were high.

According to Mr Akpaloo, “Martin Amidu was lying to have said that because it was an election year he couldn’t prosecute Mahama…It’s a lie …he just can’t do the job”.

“Is the ANC not the government in Power in South Africa? Why didn’t they say jailing Jacob Zuma would ignite chaos in the country? Mahama should’ve been jailed like Jacob Zuma”. Akpaloo emphasised.

The Bole MP said; “former President John Dramani Mahama who is from Bole has asked me to tell the good people of Bole-Bamboi Constituency that, he has not forgotten of the good things they have done for him over the years and that Inshah Allah (God willing) he is likely to come back to contest elections in his party and so they should use this special Eid-ul-Adha day to thank God and to ask for good health, success and victory for him.”

The former President has been silence on a return since his defeat in the 2020 polls to president Akufo-Addo. With this message, supporters of Mr Mahama can have a renewed sense of hope to see him come back to lead the NDC in 2024.
