It’s Better To Be A Messenger For Ruling NPP Than General Secretary For Opposition NDC – Obour

Published

on


Musician cum politician, Bice Osei Kuffour known in showbiz as Obour has stressed on a famous statement made by former President J.A Kufour that it’s better to be a messenger in a ruling government than to be the general secretary of a political party in opposition.

Speaking with Amansan Krakye on GBC Radio Central the New Patriotic Party (NPP) parliamentary aspirant in the Asante Akyem South constituency noted he has jined hands with other aspirants to rally for victory for the NPP ahead of the December polls.

“Former President Kufour said sometime ago that it’s better to be a messenger in a ruling government than to be a Chief Executive in an opposition political party.

“So we’ve put ourselves together and we’re on tour as Aspirants Unite for Victory and that’s also another means that we’re using to support the NPP to bring lasting unity to win elections 2020 one touch. I believe that there are diverse ways in which we can serve the NPP,” he stated.

According to him, he’s ready to avail himself as party communicator should he get the nod from the NPP.

“The political party’s work demands a lot and there are several people who are also working for the party. I strongly believe that when you get the director of communication for the NPP then you let him know that I’m capable and ready to serve as a member.”

He added “As for me it’s the NPP party that I’m serving and right now myself and Hon. Kennedy Kankam together we some of the aspirants who lost the NPP parliamentary primaries are working to reconcile our members.

“If you look at the acrimony that ensued during our internal party elections with some members very bitter, we’ve moved in unity to talk to those at the grassroots so that we put our efforts behind those who were elected as parliamentary candidates in the constituencies and also President Akufo-Addo to win massively,” he concluded.

I Can’t Be Compared To Mahama Who Cuts Sods Without Funding – Akufo-Addo

Published

on


President Akufo Addo has in a subtle jab stated he is not like former president John Dramani Mahama who goes about cutting sods for projects without funds secured.

Cutting sod for the construction of the 71.25-kilometre Enchi to Elubo road, as part of his 3-day tour of the Western North Region on Friday September 25, the President noted he only cut sods when all the process have been completed with the money available.

“When I came here a year ago, I assured the Chiefs and people that I will work hard to ensure that the Enchi to Elubo road commences. There were a number of processes, like the contractor and funding sources, that had to be completed before today’s ceremony could take place. All those processes have been successfully completed”

He continued, “I am not like some people who rush to cut sods without securing the requisite funding for the projects. I will never do that. When I cut the sod, it means all the processes have been completed and the money for the project is available. I am not out to deceive anyone.”

Western Togoland Protest Is A Diversionary Tactic By Gov’t To Take Attention Off Voter Roll Anomalies – MP

Published

on


Member of Parliament for Builsa North Constituency, James Agalga has accused the government of being behind the Western Togoland protest which happened in the Volta region this dawn.

According to him, it is an attempt to divert attention from the much talked about voter register anomalies which the EC is attempting to disenfranchise many Ghanaians.

He told Ghanaweb, “Curiously enough, only yesterday, the main opposition leader President Mahama addressed a major press conference and outlined a number of grievances in respect of this voter exhibition exercise. There has been a massive deletion of names of Ghanaians from the voters roll. President Mahama drew the attention of the whole world to these happenings only yesterday, now this morning, we are hearing of an attack, 2 police stations have been attacked. It seems to me that this particular move is a diversionary tactic”.

“The coincidence is mindboggling that the inability of our national security to gather intelligence in respect of the intention of those bandits to cause trouble in the Volta region is something that needs to be engaged in the attention of all”.

“Nothing poses danger to our national security than the deletion of the names of Ghanaians from the voters roll. We had issues of the military deployed to the Volta region to prevent Ghanaians from registering…this a ploy on the part of the security agency to cause further deployment in that part of the country and to intimidate our people in a manner that will discourage them from coming out to vote in the December elections. These are all matters that need to be interrogated properly,” he added.

It Was Needless To Call For Int’l Observers, We Run Our Elections Without Them – Mahama Slammed

Published

on


Political Pressure group, Let My Vote Count Alliance (LMVCA),has criticised National Democratic Congress (NDC) flagbearer, John Dramani Mahama for caliing on International Observers to come down to the country immediately.

This comes after the former president expressed displeasure over activities of the Electoral Commission.

“I wish to appeal to the international community, international election observers and our domestic observers; given all that has gone amiss with the electoral process and the likelihood of continued greater challenges ahead of this year’s elections, I will want to urge them to focus their lenses on Ghana and arrive earlier in the country than ever before. This will enable them to engage the EC, IPAC and all stakeholders as part of efforts to resolve these major problems with the register,” he said at a press briefing on Thursday, September 24, 2020.

In reaction, the LMVCA told Starr FM that the call was unnecessary because the EC had already admitted its flaws and have assured it’ll fix them.

He added that Ghana has been running its elections without international observers therefore their presence here won’t be needed.
