Mahama Under Fire For ‘Disrespecting’ Chief Imam’s Office

Published

on


A zongo development advocacy group, The Zongo Movement for Development (ZOMOD) has slammed former president John Dramani Mahama for what it described as “flagrant display of disrespect towards His Eminence Sheikh Osman Nuhu Sharubutu.”

In a statement, the group fired the National Democratic Congress (NDC) flagbearer for turning the introduction of his running mate, Prof. Jane Naana Opoku-Agyemang into a rally in the presence of the Chief Imam at his residence.

The statement read, “the Zongo Movement for Development, ZOMOD has noted with shock the flagrant display of disrespect towards His Eminence Sheikh Osman Nuhu Sharubutu by former President John Dramani Mahama and his Running Mate Prof. Jane Naana Opoku Agyemang on Wednesday August 12, 2020, at his residence in Fadama,” the statement said.

It added, “former President Mahama, under the guise of visiting His Eminence to introduce to him his running mate, Prof. Jane Opoku-Agyemang, ended up with a mini rally at the residence of the National Chief Imam with organised supporters who were bussed to the place.”

The group described the incident as “appaling and unbecoming of one who ought to know better.”

The group further insisted the act was deliberate because the former president did not do that in his visit to other places.

“By bussing supporters to his residence and spontaneouly chanting party songs in front of the National Chief Imam and other Eminent Imams, the former President and his team deliberately set up the revered Chief Imam for propaganda effect to enhance his political campaign.”

It added, “just a few hours before Mr. Mahama went to the Chief Imam’s residence for his rally, he had called on the leadership of the Christian community and he didn’t dare display such disrespect towards them.

“Why did he choose to bus people to the Chief Imam’s residence and not to other places he had been introducing his running mate like traditional rulers and the Christian community?”

“For turning what should have been an indoor introduction to a cacophonous political rally in fron of His Eminence, former President Mahama must apologise to him, his office and the Muslim community.”

A Personal Assistant to the National Chief Imam, Alhaji Huzaiman Osman registered his displeasure on Facebook.

“You don’t hold a political rally in the name of introducing a running mate to the Muslim community and you expect me to be around when you know I oppose all political rallies at the residence of His Eminence because it is not right,” he wrote.

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.
