NDC Will Scrap Akufo Addo’s Founder’s Day When Voted Into Power – Banahene

Published

on


The opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) have insisted that the change of the founder’s day date celebration by President Akufo Addo to August 4, is a grand agenda to rewrite the history of the country.

Speaking on the ‘Epa Hoa Daben’ show, member of the NDC communication team, Kweku Banahene stated the NDC will scrap it when they come into power insisting Kwame Nkrumah is the only recognised founder of Ghana.

“The founder’s day was attributed to Osagyefo Dr. Kwame Nkrumah on his birthday, 21st September which was since Nkrumah’s time but was later cancelled by the Busia Government. And then Prof.Mills brought back that holiday,” he said.

“Nana Addo has a grand agenda to rewrite Ghana’s history. He wants to change everything that did not go well for his family. How do you compare Kwame Nkrumah to Dankwa? Someone who led Ghana to independence. Kwame Nkrumah cannot be an ordinary person. History shows that the minority group UGCC voted against the name Ghana in parliament.

Everyone knows Kwame Nkrumah but who knows J B Danquah? You can have people who supported Kwame Nkrumah but Kwame Nkrumah is the main architect, the protagonist,” he stressed.

He added, “so today it is 4th August but when NDC comes in 2020 we will revert it to 21st September.”

The Akufo Addo led government in 2018 laid before Parliament a Public Holidays Amendment Bill by the Minister of the Interior, Ambrose Dery, and passed to amend the Public Holiday Act, 2001 in 2018.

The New Bill slashed three public holidays and introduced two new holidays which included the Founders’ Day on August 4th.

NPP’s Incompetent Tag On Me Won Them The 2016 Elections – Mahama

Published

on


Former President John Dramani Mahama has noted that the New Patriotic Party (NPP) in 2016 deliberately tagged him with incompetence and trumpeted it loud enough for Ghanaians to believe it.

According to him, the several repetition of the incompetent tag on him to the Ghanaian people, made the NPP won because Ghanaians thought it was true.

However, as it stands now, Ghanaians have realized who is truly incompetent because they now have the chance to compare four years under him with that of the NPP.

“For those of us who studied Social psychology you can repeat something over and over again then people come to accept it as the truth and that is the strategy the NPP took in 2016.

“They put an underserved tag of incompetence on us and said it over and over again to get it stuck in the minds of people that we were indeed incompetent but today we can see what is happening,” he said.

This EC Is Very Strange, I Sense Election Day Chaos – Mahama

Published

on


National Democratic Congress (NDC) flagbearer, John Dramani Mahama has bemoaned the work of the current Electoral Commission leadership.

Speaking in an interview on Woezor TV, the former president noted that the current EC Boss, Mrs Jean Mensah runs the electoral processes very strangely which could breed chaos on the election day.

He said, “I’m prepared to give her the benefit of the doubt that she has no malicious intent to rig the election but the degree of efficiency of giving us a credible voter register, is what we’re talking about”.

“I’m not talking about whether she has an evil intention or what. I know she is a Christian and I’m sure that in her own mind, she knows that she must do the right thing but the point is, the steps that they are taking are so inefficient and incompetent that we don’t know what is happening.

“We’ve had ECs, we’ve gone through registration exercises; this is the most disorderly and chaotic registration exercise we’ve ever seen and I’m worried about the election day because those new BVRs they’ve brought, we don’t know whether they work; people are going to try and they are going to be rejected but their names are going to be on the register and it’s going to create a lot of chaos.

“They’ve brought a new system where the presiding officer can override both the fingerprint and the facial recognition and do a manual. Meanwhile, my thought was that – and what they said was that – this new system is more efficient and is going to reduce the number of manual verifications that we do. It seems likely that it is rather going to increase it because we’ve not tested it, we’ve not done test runs, and, so, I fear for the chaos that will occur on election day”, Mahama stated.
