Only High Court Can Declare Fomena Seat Vacant; You Have No Right To Do So – Kwaku Azar To Speaker



Law professor, Kwaku Asare, popularly known as Kwaku Azar has chided Speaker of Parliament, Prof Aaron Mike Oquaye for declaring Fomena Member of Parliament, Mr Andrew Amoako Asiamah’s seat vacant.

Mr Asiamah, a member of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP), decided to contest the December 7th parliamentary election as an independent candidate and withdrew from the NPP primaries after accusing the party of scheming to get him out.

On this basis, the NPP wrote to the Speaker to expunge him from Parliament since he no more serves in Parliament on the ticket of the NPP citing Article 97 (1)g of the constitution.

In reaction, the Speaker on November 7 declared the Fomena MP’s seat vacant.

Speaking to the issue, Kwaku Azar slammed the speaker insisting it is only the high court that can declare a seat vacant.

See post below:

“Dr. William Akoto, MP for New Abirem (2004) did not vacate his seat when he run as an independent for the 2008 election. My friend and V-mate Joe Wise, independent (2008), did not vacate his seat even though he caucused with NPP and run as an NPP candidate for the 2012 election.

“Mr. Teye-Nyaunu, MP for Lower Manya Krobo (2008) did not vacate his seat when he run as an independent for the 2012 election. The law on vacating one’s seat is crystal clear.

“First, any question of whether a seat has been vacated can only be determined by the high court, not MPs, not the Speaker, not political parties or not politicians.

“The reason is clear. We do not want partisanship to determine when a seat has been vacated.

“Second, a seat is vacated if and only if an MP, elected on the ticket of a party, leaves that party to join another party or seeks to remain in Parliament as an independent member.

“In like manner, a member vacates his seat if he was elected as an independent candidate and joins a political party.

“These laws are meant to govern the movement of MPs during a term of parliament but are not meant to burden their political right to change their affiliations in future terms.

“The whole purpose of these laws is to curtail the tendency for a winning government to poach independent MPs or those from other parties thereby weakening the opposition.

“It is not a political instrument that political parties can use to punish MPs who they have issues with.

“This sudden urge to violate the constitution with impunity is very disturbing and must be halted and reversed.

“Regardless of political affiliation, we must come together to rebuff the Speaker and to protect the Fomena MP.”

Former President John Dramani Mahama is sixty-two (62) years old today, November 29, 2020.

Posting pictures of them in some romantic poses, Mrs. Mahama wrote on Facebook,

“You’ve been my inspiration, my strength and my soul mate.
You are always there when I need you. Having you by my side has meant the world to me.
Truly, if I am asked the secret to a happy marriage, I would be tempted to say “finding a husband like you”.

“You make life better for all whose lives you touch. On this special day, I pray for good health, long life and for God to give you many more reasons to continue to smile. May God open the eyes of all to see the purity in your heart and the selfless, committed man you are to family, friends and our dear country.

“Happy 62nd birthday and God bless you my dear husband- my perfect gift from God.
More Love, hugs and kisses from me and the children. Always read and remember Psalm 121: 1-8.

God The Father, Son And The Holy Spirit Opened My Eyes To See The True Colors Of Akufo-Addo – Amidu



Former Special Prosecutor, Martin Amidu has credited the Holy Trinity (God the father, the son and the holy spirit) for showing him the true colors of President Akufo-Addo after he had held him in high esteem thinking he was incorruptible.

Amidu revealed this in a 27paged letter to the President; noting that he realized he was fighting a lost battle against corruption when the President appealed to him to shelve his report on the corruption risk assessment on the Agyapa Royalties deal.

According to Amidu, he immediately realised that the President he had been adoring all this while was only the  ‘mother serpent of all corruption and corruption related activities’ in the country since independence.

“I became more convinced beyond any further reasonable doubt after my meeting with the president in his Office in the evening of Sunday Ist November 2020, when the President attempted to persuade me to shelve the Agyapa Royalties Limited Transaction anti-corruption report to allow him deal with the matter through a statement to the public, that God (represented by the Holy Trinity in my Catholic faith) was in his divine way revealing to me for the first time, that the President of Ghana only looked like an innocent flow of the fight against corruption And may God, encompassed in the Blessed Holy Trinity be eternally praised for this divine revelation”.

Amidu’s Extreme Rigidness Could Have Contributed To His Failure – Manasseh Azure



Investigative journalist, Manasseh Azure Awuni believes Martin Amidu may have contributed to his abrupt end as the Special Prosecutor.

According to him, Mr. Amidu’s “holier than thou” posture as the SP affected his effectiveness when in office.

He noted in Facebook post that Martin Amidu should have exercised some flexibility in his dealings at the OSP.

In a reaction to Mr. Amidu’s 27-paged explosive response to the Presidency’s reply to his (Amidu) resignation, Manasseh stated, “It is also worth pointing out that apart from the interference, Martin Amidu’s extremely rigid posture and human relations could have contributed to his failure. It is possible to be flexible without compromising on your integrity or values.

“To succeed as a corruption fighter, you must work with with others. You must work with the good people and the bad people. You must learn to play your cards well and use people to get what you want without they knowing you’re using them. You cannot be an island and succeed.

“If you stand on a moral Afadzato and perceive or deal with all the rest from the valley of sin, you will achieve very little or nothing.”
