‘Just Look At That Joke’ – Okada Riders Slam Bawumia For His Car Promise

Published

on


A spokesperson for the Okada riders association, Solomon Akpanaba has admonished Vice President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia for his promise to provide Okada riders the opportunity to swap their bikes for cars instead of legalising their operations.

The Vice President described okada business as a ‘high risk’ venture therefore government will not be legalising it.

In response, the okada riders quizzed “now you are coming out to say that Okada is risky. We are asking that is it today that you know okada is risky? If yes, the motorbikes that are in town for sale, are they going to deport them? Because you allow risky equipment to be brought into the country then you declare them as risky after taking your tax.”

“We are also saying that yesterday and today alone in Ghana, we know how many lives are lost through vehicular accidents. Those vehicles are not risky per the analysis of Dr Bawumiah. We are disappointed in them and we will speak louder on 7th December.”

Mr Akpanaba added, “you are saying that you are going to buy cars for us in place of motorbikes, just look at that joke. Motorbike is an alternative means of transport where there are traffic jams, you are going to solve that problem by providing cars again, just look at this.”

Former New Patriotic Party (NPP) Member of Parliament for the Asikuma-Odoben-Brakwa Constituency PC Appiah Ofori has bemoaned neglect by President Akufo-Addo after campaigning so hard for him.

According to Mr Ofori, he wrote to the President after winning the elections to make him a board member of the Office of the Special Prosecutor, however, the president did not respond to his letter.

He told TV3’s Johnnie Hughes, ”I championed Akufo-Addo and put him up from 2007 up to the time he became president 2016. I am not happy about my abandonment. I am not happy about the way Akufo-Addo doesn’t know me again.

“Either he has blocked my line or changed his line. If I call him it doesn’t go [through]. I personally petitioned Akufo-Addo that I wanted to be sent to the board if the [Office of] Special Prosecutor so that I will become the investigator but no response from him.

“I wrote the letter as soon as the Special Prosecutor was appointed. I just wanted to go there to investigate all these Auditor General’s reports. Some of the Auditor General’s reports are not comprehensive enough.”

I Regret Not Working For Mahama When He Gave Me The Chance – Fmr NPP MP

Published

on


Former New Patriotic Party (NPP) Member of Parliament for the Asikuma-Odoben-Brakwa Constituency PC Appiah Ofori has expressed regret over an an offer he turned down from former President John Dramani Mahama.

According to him, the former president personally called him on phone to engage his services in handling corruption cases under the National Democratic Congress (NDC), however, he turned him down because of his relationship with the New Patriotic Party (NPP).

He said, “John Mahama himself called me and told me he wanted me to go and play a role in his administration and I told him, that if he himself engages in corruption, I would not hesitate to expose him.

“He told me that was why he wanted me to come and be a check on him and his ministers but I didn’t take the position because if I should join NDC administration, it will mean that I had abandoned NPP and I had abandoned Akufo-Addo. So I told him I won’t take the position but any corrupt practices that will take place in his administration which will come to my notice, I will draw his attention to it.”

Asked whether he regrets not taking up that position, he said: “As a nation, as a country for the better of Ghana, I think if I had placed Ghana’s interest above party and got into that position, I think I would have been able to get all those engaged in corruption prosecuted. So for that, I have regretted.”

What Is Your Position On Western Togoland Sucessionists? – Mahama And NDC Queried

Published

on


Deputy Communications Director of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP), Mame Yaa Aboagye says the opposition NDC come clear with its position on the Western Togoland Sucessionists and stop apportioning blames.

To her, the NDC’s stance from onset about the discussion of the Western Togoland Secessionists is one of inconsistency and dishonesty.

“When the secessionists earlier invaded parts of the Volta Region, NDC and Mr. Mahama quickly jumped into conclusion and began to apportion blames on President Akufo-Addo and the NPP for sending the Military to disenfranchise them about the Electoral Commission’s voters‘ registration and also to create fear and panic ahead of 2020 election.

“They also claimed that the NPP created confusion in the Region to prevent the Voltarians from coming out to vote on December 7 to make them lose more votes in order to make them (NDC) unpopular. But we all know the Military per intelligence was in some part of the Volta Region to protect the people against some of these issues.

“It seems the inconsistent NDC is in it again with another drama instigating that the government is behind the roadblock by the secessionists blaming NPP again for being reluctant in arresting the corporate. All I see in this issue is a big disconnect between the reality on the ground and inconsistency of the opposition party”, she said.

She urged political parties to allow the security agencies to do their work.

“Let’s resolve this issue devoid of politics because both NPP and NDC has its supporters in the Volta Region since the outcome will not affect only one political party, hence should leave the matter to the security experts for advice as far as this issue is concerned,” she stressed.
