NDC Replies Kweku Baako On Mahama ‘Sakawa’ Sod-Cutting Claims



The National Democratic Congress (NDC) has refuted claims by veteran journalist, Kweku Baako, that some projects John Mahama cut the sod for in his administration did not have funding.

The projects under contention are the second phase of the Kumasi Airport expansion and the Tema Motorway Interchange project.

On the Tema Motorway Interchange project, the NDC, in a statement signed by its National Communications Officer, Sammy Gyamfi, said even though preparatory work and funding for the said project was secured by the Mahama administration, Mr. Mahama never cut the sod for commencement of the project.

“Rather, it was the construction of two (2) 105-metre span flyovers from the Flower Pot Junction to link the Tema Motorway (BOG-funded) and another that links the East Legon/Shiashie stretch projects (GOG-funded), that President John Dramani Mahama cut the sod for, on 2nd November 2016,” it explained.

The party says the contractors for both projects were already on-site at the time Mr. Mahama cut the sod for commencement of the projects “which were being funded from the government’s own resources and expected to be completed within 24 months at a cost of GHS50 million.”

For the airport project, the party said Mr. Mahama performed a sod-cutting ceremony after securing parliamentary approval for a loan of 65,037,500 euros and export credit support in the sum of 7,762,500 euros.

“Aside the fact that Parliament had approved the loan facility at the time President Mahama cut the sod for the project, the contractor, who had completed the first phase of the project, had moved to site and had cleared and fenced the land for the take-off of Phase 2 of the project,” the party added.

These contentions come after Mr. Mahama accused President Akufo-Addo of cutting sod for projects that were not ready to commence.

He said the government only brought equipment to the site just for the sod-cutting ceremony.

“So it is just for deception. It is Sakawa. It is 419,″ Mr. Mahama said.


Revealed: Murdered MP Begged Robbers To Follow Him Home For Money – Police



Late Mfantseman MP Ekow Kwansa-Hayford pleaded with armed robbers who attacked him to follow him to his house to receive monies they were demanding, the Police has disclosed.

Police prosecutors who arraigned the arrested suspects before court told the court that the robbers demanded money from the MP who then pleaded that he had run out of cash because he was just returning from a campaign trip therefore they should follow him home.

However, the plea did not convince the robbers as they shot him instantly.

Narrating the incidence to the court, Chief Inspector Seth Frimpong said Police had intel that robbers had mounted barriers at Abeadze—Dominase Mankesim road and were robbing unsuspecting travellers.

Rushing to the scene, they found some persons shot, with Ekow Hayford later identified as an MP for Mfantseman Constituency.

Detailing how he got shot, the police noted that the Mitsubushi truck the MP and his company drove was shot, forcing it to grind to a halt after running into a ditch.

The robbers then surrounded the vehicle and demanded money while asking which of them was the MP. Ekow Hayford then identified himself as the MP.

“So they pounced on him and collected his Samsung galaxy 850 mobile phone and demanded money. The late MP told the robbers that he had used up all his money as he was returning from campaign tour. He, therefore, pleaded with them to take him to his house to give them money but they refused and shot him, killing him instantly,” Chief Insp. Frimpong told the court.

I Always Thought That Old Man Will Be Different – Manasseh Azure Shades Disappointing Buhari And Akufo-Addo



Renowned Investigative Journalist, Manasseh Azure Awuni has in a usual coded message, addressed his disappointment in an unnamed ‘old man’, who failed to be different as was touted.

Manasseh Azure Awuni, who is known for his usually thought-provoking writings laced with proverbs and insinuations, this time appear to have delivered a write-up addressed to two people.

Even though the former Joy FM journalist failed to mention any names, many readers and fans who commented under his social media posts are already pointing fingers at Presidents; Akufo-Addo and Muhamadu Buhari.

In a Facebook post, he wrote, “

I used to think that old man would be different. They said he hated corruption and would end it. I thought, with his age, he would think about leaving a legacy instead of just adding up to the number of failed rulers of the continent. They said he would not tolerate nonsense. Now, it’s clear the promoters of those character traits were lying, or they too did not know him well. We now know him for who he is. #ENDSARSNOW
