NPP’s Gloria Ofori-Boadu Narrates the Humiliation She Suffered at What She Wouldn’t Call a Vetting

“I was treated like a criminal and I had to leave because it was unbearable” – Gloria Ofori-Boadu



Former Executive Director of International Federation of Women Lawyers (FIDA-Ghana), Ms. Gloria Ofori-Boadu expressed her displeasure with her disqualification by the New Patriotic Party, NPP from participating in the soon to be held Primaries.

Ms Gloria prior to her disqualification
Aspired to contest as a Member of Parliament on the ticket of the New Patriotic Party, (NPP) for the Abuakwa South Constituency but couldn’t make it to the Primaries.

Ms. Ofori-Boadu said she was vetted on the 7th of March, 2020 at Koforidua in what she said she wouldn’t call a vetting because of the hostility and the humiliating approach adopted by her own party’s panel.
“I was treated like a criminal and I had to leave because it was unbearable “ she said.

I was told my name was not even in the report and it was rumored that I have been withdrawn but I haven’t received any official communication until I heard it being discussed on a radio this morning.

Ms Ofori-Boadu said she has observed a pattern in the party where those aspiring for Parliamentary seats occupied by Ministers are being disqualified.

She calls her disqualification unfair and questions the kind of democracy the party sought to portray with what appeared to be handpicking of candidates rather than the delegates system in practice.

The human rights advocate cited a scientific research conducted by Mr. Ben Ephson, that says “Political Parties stand to lose about 400,000 votes if they handpick candidates”.

Hon. Samuel Atta-Akyea is the Member of Parliament for the Abuakwa South Constituency on the ticket of the New Patriotic Party and currently the Minister of Works and Housing.



Akufo-Addo Urges Ghanaians To Queue And Register Despite ‘Hiding’ In Isolation – Ghanaians React Angrily



The President of The Republic of Ghana, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has rallied Ghanaians to rise up and register in their numbers in order to vote in the 2020 elections despite the glaring threat of COVID-19.

Despite the numerous calls to the President to cease the voters registration exercise, His Excellency seems determined to see an end to the exercise come what may, even COVID.

Various stakeholders, including the Ghana Medical Association and many CSO’s have warned against the continued registration exercise looking at the rising number of daily infections, yet the exercise continues nonetheless.

The President who has been under precautionary isolation after being exposed to a COVID-19 positive patient within his circle has urged Ghanaians to go out and register.

The President’s post did not sit down well with many Ghanaians who responded to his tweet chastizing him for being too focused on power at the expense of lives.

Gender Minister Supports Calls To Ban Counsellor Lutterodt From Speaking In The Media



The Minister for Gender, Children and Social Protection, Cynthia Mamle Morrison has asked that George Lutterodt must be banned from speaking in the media with immediate effect.

According to the Minister, she described George Lutterodt’s comment as insane and asked rhetorically wether he has raped somebody before.

Speaking to Valentina Ofori Afriyie on 12 Live on Class91.3FM on Friday, 10 July 2020, Mrs Morrison stated that she “was surprised a sane human being can sit on radio and television and make some utterances.”

“Has he raped somebody before? Does he know how rape victims feel about being raped… it is sad that the interview went on. What was the programme about? How can somebody behave like that? This is so insane. This is just not right,” she stated.

She indicated that Ama K Abebrese reached out to her concerning gathering signatures for the petition, which the Ministry would have a look at, adding, however, that the“counsellor”should not be entertained on the airwaves.
