I’ll Create More Than 100,000 Jobs With Tree Planting Initiative – Mahama Promises



The flagbearer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), John Mahama has promised that the next NDC government under his leadership will create over 100,000 new jobs for the youth through a new tree planting program if he is elected during the December 2020 polls.

This is part of the NDC’s grand plan to create over a million jobs for young people within the first term in office if given the nod.

According to Mr. Mahama, the NDC government if elected will tap into the available afforestation funds to create these jobs.

The former president revealed in an address on Weozor TV, that his government will invest more $100 million into the program if given the nod.

He said, “We are going to come with a new initiative in forestry, tree growing and it is going to be in every district of this country. We are going to employ young people to be involved in tree growing and reclaiming of some of our lands that are spoilt. We intend to inject about $100 million to $200 million into that sector. I’m sure that will create some 100,000 to 200,000 jobs.”

This promise by John Mahama follows a similar program by the ruling NPP government which announced in 2018 that it had engaged over 60,000 youth in the Youth in Afforestation Programme.

Okada Legalisation Is Already ‘Dead On Arrival’ – Civil Engineer



A renowned Civil Engineer, Mahama Abdulai (Ing) has warned legalising Okada will only worsen the already numerous road safety issues in the country.

According to him, the country is already plagued with many non-functioning road safety laws such as seat belts for commercial vehicles and it is likely that okada, even when legalised will still be abused and become a lawless venture.

“I have benefited from Okada when I was coming from Nsawam and got stuck in a traffic jam regardless of setting off three (3) hours before time. Though it helps, we should not legalize Okada usage in the country,” he said on Happy FM’s Happy Morning Show.

He believes that if regulations are even put in place to regulate the business, it will amount to nothing. “Few years ago, all the commercial vehicles (trotros) were mandated to have seatbelts fixed in all seats but do we see that now? How many vehicles have seatbelts for passengers?” he quizzed.

“I am close to tears because I know these particular communities very well. We are seeing a calamity of Biblical proportions,” Ras Mubarak told journalists.

“There are people who were born here who are adults today who have never seen anything like this in the history of the area. It is complete devastation. About 47 homes have been submerged,” he bemoaned.

Meanwhile the Volta River Authority (VRA) has revealed it is currently putting in place plans to enable it relocate settlers along the White Volta in the North East Region to protect them against floods and also the spillage of the Bagre Dam.

Kennedy Agyapong Begs Supreme Court To Stop Contempt Case Against Him



Assin Central Member of Parliament, Kennedy Agyapong has prayed the Supreme Court to stop a contempt proceeding initiated by the Accra High Court against him.

This comes after the politician described a judge as ‘stupid’ and threatened to deal with him.

Summoned to appear before the Accra High Court on Monday to justify why he should not be punished for the insults, Kennedy Agyapong failed to show up with his lawyers insisting he was not personally served with the initial writ of summons which was issued on September 9, 2020.

Lawyers of the legislator filed a judicial review application to the Supreme Court seeking to impede the Accra High Court from hearing the contempt case brought against him.

They further want the Supreme Court to reject as invalid, the order of summons for him to appear before the High Court.

In an affidavit, Kennedy Agyapong insisted that the court (Land Court 12) which summoned him has no jurisdiction over the case because his comments were against a different judge in a different case pending before Labour Court 2.

According to him, he has apologised to the judge who summoned him and for his disrespectful behaviour.

Parts of his affidavit reads; “The words uttered which I deem uncomplimentary and I have since apologized were not directed at the Court, presided over by his Lordship Amos Wuntah Wuni, the Court is not seized with jurisdiction to order the applicant to appear and to answer why he should not be severely punished for contempt of court.”
