I Support Galamsey, It Feeds My People – DCE Brags

Published

on


President Akufo Addo, since he was sworn in, have been fighting illegal mining, popularly known as galamsey which has been destroying water bodies depriving many communities of good drinking water in the country.

However, a viral video of one of his DCE appointees suggests the President’s efforts to stop the menace does not have the backing of all his appointees.

District Chief Executive of Amansie West, William Asante Bediako was recorded on tape insisting galamsey feeds his people and therefore has all his support.

He can be heard saying, “One thing that has brought me a lot criticism is that I support galamsey. Why won’t I support galamsey. But for galamsey, there would be no storey building in Manso. But for galamsey, no son of this land would have bought a car worth 1billion. So if some people who are educated are pained that a galamseyer is making money, as for me Bediako this is what my town folks do to survive.”

 “That’s why sometime ago I gave my backing to plans by some people to sell some stones belonging to the mines. Even the one in the soil, the whites have come for it so what’s wrong with you taking the ones that have been processed. I have been insulted on radio but I will not stop.”

Meanwhile Member of Parliament for Amensie West Constituency Manso Adubia, Yaw Frimpong has insisted that the type of mining done in his area is a licensed small scale mining.

“If you are a stranger to the constituency or the district, and you see these people, you will think that it is galamsey but averagely, they are working around legal small scale mining. The president has also introduced community mining because you have to create jobs for the communities”, he noted.

This EC Is Very Strange, I Sense Election Day Chaos – Mahama

Published

on


National Democratic Congress (NDC) flagbearer, John Dramani Mahama has bemoaned the work of the current Electoral Commission leadership.

Speaking in an interview on Woezor TV, the former president noted that the current EC Boss, Mrs Jean Mensah runs the electoral processes very strangely which could breed chaos on the election day.

He said, “I’m prepared to give her the benefit of the doubt that she has no malicious intent to rig the election but the degree of efficiency of giving us a credible voter register, is what we’re talking about”.

“I’m not talking about whether she has an evil intention or what. I know she is a Christian and I’m sure that in her own mind, she knows that she must do the right thing but the point is, the steps that they are taking are so inefficient and incompetent that we don’t know what is happening.

“We’ve had ECs, we’ve gone through registration exercises; this is the most disorderly and chaotic registration exercise we’ve ever seen and I’m worried about the election day because those new BVRs they’ve brought, we don’t know whether they work; people are going to try and they are going to be rejected but their names are going to be on the register and it’s going to create a lot of chaos.

“They’ve brought a new system where the presiding officer can override both the fingerprint and the facial recognition and do a manual. Meanwhile, my thought was that – and what they said was that – this new system is more efficient and is going to reduce the number of manual verifications that we do. It seems likely that it is rather going to increase it because we’ve not tested it, we’ve not done test runs, and, so, I fear for the chaos that will occur on election day”, Mahama stated.

Cut Off My Head If NPP’s Votes In Ashanti Region Does Not Reduce In Gargantuan Proportions – Prophet Declares

Published

on


Prophet Johnson Adu Boahen, the host of ‘Ogyie Mmere’ on Accra-based Angel 102.9 FM, has made a shocking and bold declaration that his head should be cut off if the NPP’s votes in it’s ‘world bank’, the Ashanti Region does not reduce in gargantuan proportions.

According to the Prophet, who claims to have done the majority of the spiritual work that ushered the NPP into government in 2016, the revelation he has received from God concerning this year’s election is quite different.

In an interview with Kumasi-based Angel 96.1 FM, the Prophet claimed that the current happenings in the Spiritual realm do not in any way favour the ruling Party.

The Prophet also claimed that he had a vision in which he saw a man nicely adorned with NPP colours, and with a massive following suddenly turning into a goat after his followers had asked him to remove his face covering.

According to him, in his vision, the large following disappeared immediately the nicely dressed man in NPP apparel turned into a goat.

Explaining the meaning of the vision, the Prophet narrated that the people in the Ashanti Region will for the first time refrain from voting for the NPP in a manner that will ensure that the ruling party will lose votes in epic proportions.
