Mahama Is Our Own, But We Did Not Teach Him To Be A Tribal Bigot – Gonja Group Fires Mahama Over ‘Akyem Sakawa’ Tag

Published

on


A group calling itself “Peace for Savannah” has rebuked the flagbearer of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) for supposedly promoting tribal and ethnic sentiments in the country’s body politic ahead of the 2020 general elections.

The group contends that Mr Mahama’s recent alleged ethnocentric comments send strong signals in stoking divisions among ethnic groups in the country in an unacceptable manner as far as the country’s democracy is concerned.

John Mahama has come under intense pressure for reposting an opinion piece that tagged certain officials of the governing New Patriotic Party as “Akyem Sakawa mafias” on his social media page.

In a statement signed by the convenor of Peace for Savannah, members of the association warned that it was time former President, John Mahama and the NDC realised the people of the Savannah Region and Gonjaland will no longer fall for any tribal politics.

“The people of Gonjaland are not tribal bigots. They are very much awake and discerning. Undoubtedly, former President John Dramani Mahama is our own. We are not disowning him at all. The people of Gonjaland pushed him to the top, so he will get us development. He was never taught by our Chiefs and elders how to insult and cast aspersions at other tribes. To be straight on the point, his insult on the good people of Akyem was unfortunate and backward. As sons and daughters of Gonjaland, we would not also be happy should anybody single us out and heap insults on us just because a Gonja is the flagbearer of the NDC. We will not take it and shall take the same up if it ever occurs.”

The statement further added: “the tribal bigotry must end. From 2008 when former president Mahama was nominated as the running mate to the flagbearer of the NDC to date, the NDC has been on us to vote for them because of our brother, former President Mahama. We have religiously followed through their call and voted massively for the NDC but nothing good came to the Gonja Kingdom in return. Almost all our roads were unmotorable, many of our youth were unemployed, the Savannah region was the least in terms of access to electricity and worst of it, they never demonstrated a dot of political will and commitment to the realization of the almost four decades dream of the people of Gonjaland having its own administrative region and the almighty perennial water problem in Damongo, the seat of the Gonja kingdom lingered on unattended to.”

I Wish To Help Waakye But He Is A Strong NPP Member— A-Plus

Published

on


Outspoken Ghanaian Musician, Kwame A Plus has revealed his intention to help veteran actor, Prince Yawson popularly known as Waakye but what is denying him from helping the actor is because he’s a strong NPP supporter.

His reaction comes after the actor’s search for funds to address his health challenges proved futile.

However, Kwame A-Plus believes that, since Waakye is a strong NPP supporter, the NPP should help him. He alleged that the NPP party has been stealing money and can’t help their member.

Below is his full post

I wish I could raise money for him like we always do but he is a strong NPP supporter. They should help him. All the money that you are stealing you can’t help your members.

Galamsey: Which Kind Of President Jails His Citizens And Spare Foreigners? Inusah Fuseini Wonders

Published

on


Former Minister of Lands and Natural Resources, Alhaji Inusah Fuseini has criticised President Akufo-Addo for being discriminative in his ‘failed’ fight against illegal mining (galamsey).

Speaking to Citi News, he bemoaned how unjust it is to arrest illegal miners and jail the Ghanaians amongst them whiles the foreigners, most of which are Chinese nationals, are made to go scot free.

“It is unjust to incarcerate Ghanaians for violating the law and letting go of foreigners. Foreigners are not allowed to engage in small-scale mining. Ghanaians have the right to apply for and obtain licenses to engage in small scale mining,” he said.

He hammered and justified former president John Dramani Mahama’s pledge to grant amnesty to these jailed galamseyers should he win the December 2020 polls.

“It is within the prerogative powers of the president to forgive persons who have been incarcerated for breaking the law. These people should know that there is somebody who cares for them. This is not to spite the NPP, the problem we have with small scale mining is how to regulate it for the benefit of Ghanaians. We have come to the conclusion that we cannot continue to prohibit Ghanaians from doing so,” Alhaji Fuseini stated.

Who Are You Coming To Free? How Many People Have Been Jailed For Galamsey? Mahama Quizzed

Published

on


A Deputy Lands and Natural Resources Minister, Benito Owusu-Bio has slammed former president John Dramani Mahama for promising to free jailed illegal miners if he wins the December polls.

John Mahama, at a rally in the Mpohor Constituency in the Western Region vowed to grant amnesty to jailed illegal miners under the Akufo-Addo led administration.

In reaction, Mr. Owusu called on the National Democratic Congress (NDC) flagbearer to come out and make public the number of people that have been jailed because of illegal mining.

“It is an embarrassment because of the person this particular promise is coming from. Currently, he is promising heaven and earth. I know that he will not even win the election. He is promising something that he cannot do. He should tell us how many people have been put behind bars,” he told Citi News.

“Even when we increased the punitive measures, no one was jailed. So I am surprised about what he is talking about. Let him come out and tell us the number of people that were jailed. He is just promising and lying to appeal to the public for votes,” he added.
