Jean Mensa’s EC Is Ghana’s Worst, She Must Resign – Mahama

Published

on


The Presidential Candidate of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) in the just ended 2020 polls, John Dramani Mahama says Jean Mensa should resign as the Chairperson of Ghana’s Electoral Commission (EC).

According to him, the commission has been Ghana’s worst under her leadership.

Mr. Mahama made these remarks when he visited the Bono East Capital, Techiman yesterday, December 16, to commiserate with families of victims of election-related violence in the Techiman South Constituency.

“If this was a more advanced country, the EC Chairperson would have been forced to resign in shame. Ghana has been tagged as the beacon of democracy for a long time, but the EC has soiled our reputation. This EC will go down in history as the worst ever,” he said while addressing party supporters and sympathizers.

LGBT+ Rights Ghana, a group advocating for the rights of Lesbians, Gays, Bisexuals, Transgenders and persons of other sexual orientations has indicated that their hopes of being recognised in Ghana went high after President Akufo-Addo’s interview with Aljazeera in 2017.

“In 2017, your position on the subject during the interview on Aljazeera gave us HOPE that finally we had a President who understood the dynamics of the issue at hand and whose government would be tolerant to the rights of minoritized groups like us…But events since that time have worsened our plight and made us become more endangered,” the letter said in part.

I Really Want To Get Into Akufo-Addo’s 1D1F Programme – Inusah Fuseini

Published

on


Former MP for Tamale Central, Alhaji Inusah Fuseini has indicated that he wants to take advantage of President Akufo-Addo’s one district, one factory policy to produce rice and feed the nation.

Speaking on his retirement plan as a former MP on Accra-based Asaase radio, Fuseini said:

“I have decided that I want to help feed the nation, so I am doing rice farming. Last year, I visited a lot of partners, still looking for a market to sell the rice, that’s the problem with farming. The few years I have spent farming, even before I decided not to contest again I was already into farming.”

“I really want to. Going forward, I will see how I get myself into the One District One Factory because I am thinking of big things. If you are going to do business, you must think big and so in the future, I am looking at the possibility of availing myself for the 1D1F.”

Manasseh Narrates How ‘Powerful’ Anyidoho Nearly Made Mahama Resign As Vice President

Published

on


“I never saw the Vice President of His Excellency President John Evans Atta-Mills pay the kinds of compliments Vice President Bawumia pays to President Akufo-Addo,” NDC’s Koku Anyidoho wrote on Twitter recently, adding a photograph of Vice President Bawumia bowing to President Akufo-Addo when the Supreme Court dismissed Mahama’s election petition.

Samuel Koku Anyidoho has been incessantly taunting former President John Dramani Mahama especially, and the NDC on his social media.

Prior to him becoming the President of Ghana on July 24, 2012, John Dramani Mahama, the then Vice President of Ghana felt sidelined by some “walls of competing interests built around” the late President John E. Atta-Mills, Manasseh Azure Awuni wrote in his book “The Fourth John: Reign, Rejection and Rebound”.

According to Manasseh Azure Awuni, Mahama not getting access to his boss President Atta-Mills, on certain issues gave him a lot of emotional distress.

Mrs Lordina Mahama reported her husband’s plight to the late President Atta-Mills, adding that the situation had affected John Dramani Mahama’s conjugal role in his house.

Manasseh Azure Awuni’s book revealed that President Atta-Mills then acted swiftly, reassuring Vice President Mahama to feel free and operate.

Samuel Koku Anyidoho, the former Communications Director at the presidency was one person who came across as “powerful” and could even take decisions in the name of President Atta-Mills without his consent or knowledge.

Manasseh Azure Awuni’s book cited an example whereby in June 2012 during a Black Stars qualifying match in Kumasi, there was a power outage at the stadium, disrupting the game which was being broadcast live.

Anyidoho quickly went on air on Accra-based Joy FM and said: “President Atta-Mills is upset and everybody who has a role to play in this will have their heads roll.”

He added that the Ashanti Regional Director of the Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG) would be fired and “all those in the line of fire would be fired”.

The famous “heads must roll” comment from Koku Anyidoho, Manasseh Azure Awuni explained, was not coming from President Atta-Mills because a statement from Fritz Baffour, the then Minister for Information, denied such a directive.

“The President has given no such directive and it is therefore not true that the ECG boss in the Ashanti Region has been fired.”

Koku Anyidoho’s attitude of conveying information not sanctioned by authority, according to the book, gave Vice President Mahama, who had been asked to take charge of affairs at the presidency because of the ill-health of President Atta-Mills, a lot of headaches.

“He was supposed to be in charge because the president was not healthy, but the attitude of some presidential staffers and ministers upset him so badly that he once decided to quit as vice president,” Manasseh Awuni wrote.

“The Chief Director at the Office of the Vice President had returned from lunch break to find the typist in the office seriously typing a letter. Official letters often passed through him (the Chief Director), and he then assigned the typist to work on them.

But this was an exception. When he asked the typist what he was typing, he said the vice president had given him something to type but he would not speak when asked what it was. Perhaps the content was too heavy for his mouth.

The Chief Director then drew closer to him and looked at the screen of the computer. What greeted him from the screen, alarmed him. It was Vice President John Mahama’s resignation letter that was almost ready. He didn’t have the time to read the full letter. He ordered the typist to stop typing and he headed for John Mahama’s office,” page 65 of the book reads.

As fate would have it, President Atta-Mills died on July 24, 2012, and Vice President Mahama took over as President and went ahead to contest and win the 2012 election.

“The Vice President, who did not have much power or influence within the presidency, suddenly had ultimate state power,” Manasseh wrote.
