National Council of PTA’s Against EC’s Registration Exercise in SHSs

Published

on


The National Council of Parent-Teacher Association of Ghana has registered its displeasure against the Electoral Commission (EC) for not consulting them before the decision on carrying out the voters registration exercise in Senior High Schools.

The Council alleges that, the registration exercise was an infringement on the reason why the students had reported to school.

 “The students were to be in school to do their revision and sit for the exams,” Alexander Danso, the President of National Council of Parent-Teacher Associations lamented.

Mr. Alex was also worried about the obvious which was exposing the students to the Coronavirus infection.

He said thus, “Those who are coming to do the registration, have they been tested? Are they free from the virus? We have to take into consideration all these things.”

“But if you don’t consult and you don’t do anything and you say you are going to register the students, is that why they brought them to the school? That is not part of it,” he further bemoaned.

The EC had decided on July 10 and July 11 as dates where official would visit all Senior High Schools in the country to be registered for the New Voters Card though EC has revealed that additional dates would be included should the need be.

This decision was confirmed after the Electoral Commission had had a discourse with the Ghana Education Service.

The incumbent opposition party had also condemned the ECs actions and raised worry over the legality of the decision.

‘Looks Like Someone Doesn’t Know The Judges In London’ – Sam George Teases Godfred Dame After His Case Was Thrown Out By A London Court

Published

on


MP for Ningo Prampram, Sam George has made a teasing post obviously directed at Attorney General, Godfred Yeboah Dame after a London Court threw out his appeal against a judgement cost that was awarded against the state.

The Commercial Court in London denied the government of Ghana the opportunity to mount a belated challenge to an UNCITRAL award worth over US$134 million in favour of a power contractor.

The AG had argued that national elections and the COVID-19 pandemic, did not afford the state the opportunity to mount their challenge within the stipulated time, however the court ruled the argument as unreasonable.

The case which emerged under the tenure of former AG, Gloria Akufo, traveled into the tenure of current AG, Godfred Dame.

State attorneys, including Helen Akpene Awo Ziwu, Anna Pearl Akiwumi Siriboe and Grace Oppong Dolphy in Accra, have all been mentioned in the case as having failed to beat a 28-day deadline.

The failure of the AG’s department to meet the deadline means the state will be coughing up a significant amount of US$170 million in damages to the claimants; Ghana Power Generation Company (GPGC) located at 1 Airport Square Building, 7TH Floor, Accra.

However, reacting via Twitter, Sam George teasingly wrote,

“Looks like someone doesn’t know the judges in London. We just took a loan of €170m to start a bank from Germany and now we have to pay $170m in judgement debts. Maybe we can start a susu business with the change left. Ghana, my Ghana”.

We’re Working On A Law To Ban LGBTQ+ Activities In Ghana – Bagbin

Published

on


Speaker of Parliament, Alban Sumana Bagbin says actions are being taken to enact laws that ban the activities of LGBTQI+ groups in the country.

He made this known in response to a letter from a political activist who had petitioned Parliament to amend Ghana’s laws to fight the phenomenon in the country.

“I appreciate very much your concerns about activities of the LGBTQI+ groups in the country. It is indeed a phenomenon that should not be encouraged or accepted by our society due to its eventual negative impact on society.”

“Urgent actions are being taken to pass a law to eventually nip the activities of these groups in the bud. Stakeholder consultations are also ongoing, and the results will feed into a bill that will eventually be passed into law by Parliament,” he said.
