NDC MP’s ‘Go Mad’ In Parliament After Ghana Exim Bank Paid Millions To Shatta Wale, Agya Koo

Published

on


There was a bit of drama at the hearing of the Public Accounts Committee in parliament yesterday, 10th September 2020 after it emerged that the Ghana Export-Import Bank (GEXIM) paid millions of Ghana Cedis to dancehall artiste Shatta Wale and popular Kumawood actor, Agya Koo for brand ambassador roles.

Charles Nii Armah Mensah, popularly known as Shatta Wale and Agya Koo, among others in the entertainment industry are said to have been engaged to promote made-in-Ghana goods.

The Exim Bank is a state entity established by an Act of Parliament to support the development of Ghana’s export trade, facilitate cross border trade and make Ghana a pillar in regional and continental trade.

NDC member of parliament for Kumbungu, Ras Mubarak expressed his grievance about the move, wondering if the huge monies involved could not have been invested into other more productive sectors.

“I mentioned ¢2 million that went to Shatta Wale but the Deputy CEO says they wouldn’t know who the vendor selected and this is not to say that we have a problem with Shatta Wale getting some amount of money to do whatever work but the Ghanaian public deserves to know how much went out and who got it,” he insisted.

Ras Mubarak also questioned why such huge payments could be made for such purposes at a time when Ghana was battling the aftermath of the devastating Coronavirus Pandemic.

The Deputy CEO of Exim Bank however, defended the decision of the bank to make such an investment, arguing that brand ambassadors play a crucial role in marketing a product.

Asiedu Nketia Invites Peace FM And Kwame Sefa Kayi To Sit Down And Resolve Their Differences

Published

on


The General Secretary of the opposition NDC, Johnson Asiedu Nketiah has extended a letter to the management of Media giants, Peace FM inviting them to a meeting to resolve their recent differences.

The NDC officially severed ties with Peace FM’s flagship program, Kokrokoo a few months ago after their attempt to get the Station to withdraw their former Central Regional Chairman, Allotey Jacobs from the program failed.

Though veteran Journalist, Abdul Malik Kweku Baako alleged on the show a couple of weeks ago that the NDC was begging behind the scenes to be allowed to return the show, the NDC issued a statement through their communication’s directorate that they had no intentions of returning to that show.

Following the NDC’s statement by Sammy Gyamfi, Peace FM issued a formal apology letter signed by their Managing Director, Fadda Dickson, begging the Party to let sleeping dogs lie.

Writing to officially acknowledge receipt of Peace FM’s letter, Mr Asiedu Nketia applauded the Media giants for the conciliatory tone of their letter, while also inviting the management of the station, together with the host and production team for a meeting to trash out their differences.

Akufo-Addo Speaks Big English Full Of Lies And Dishonesty – A Plus Fires Again

Published

on


Musician and political activist, Kwame Asare Obeng, popularly known as A Plus has taken a swipe at President Akufo-Addo following inconsistencies in the President’s directives concerning the COVID-19 safety protocols.

In order to promote public safety amid the coronavirus pandemic, the government came out with a number of directives aimed at reducing the spread of the deadly virus.

Among the directives, Churches are supposed to meet for a maximum of 2 hours under strict social distancing and mask-wearing protocols, bars and night clubs remain closed, schools remain closed, among other directives.

However, A Plus has questioned why all these restrictions remain in place while the President’s own political party rallies and campaigns appear to throw caution to the wind when it comes to observing COVID safety protocols on their campaign trails.

Sharing a photo of one of NPP’s recent campaigns, A Plus questioned the rationale behind closing schools, banning football and restriction the Church’s time of worship.

The musician also slammed the President for speaking big grammar full of lies and dishonesty.

Karma Is A Ghanaian – Afia Schwar Mocks Kennedy Agyapong For ‘Falling Into The Same Pit He Dug For Obinim’

Published

on


This world, they say, is just like a mirror. It reflects whatever you do. Perhaps these words sum up exactly the sentiments of comedienne, Afia Schwarzenegger as she mocked loudmouth MP for Assin Central, Kennedy Agyapong for “falling into the same pit he dug for Bishop Obinim”.

A few months ago, the maverick lawmaker launched a one-man crusade against founder and leader of the International Godsway Church, Bishop Daniel Obinim and other men of God whom he described as fake.

In the ensuing months, the MP consistently sat on his privately-owned Net2TV every Monday and Wednesday to expose what he termed as the “crimes of thieves in cassock”.

After the lawmaker’s expose’, the embattled Obinim was dragged before court for alleged falsification of official police documents. The Bishop, in the few days after his arrest was admitted to hospital on claims that he was sick – claims that the lawmaker rubbished as ‘staged’.

Well, today it is the other way round. Ken Agyapong is standing trial for denigrating a court and insulting a judge. Yesterday, when he was expected to face the court and open his defence, the MP was absent on claims that he has suffered post-COVID-19 complications.

Interestingly, just like in the case of Obinim, it appears the judge presiding over the contempt case is not really buying the lawmaker’s claims of sickness, as he has ordered the Doctor who signed the medical report to appear before the court and explain his diagnosis.

Reacting to the issue, Afia Schwar took to Facebook to share screenshots of news stories to expose the MP’s situation and subtly mock him for falling into the exact trap he set for Bishop Obinim.
