Pass Your Exams, Build Your Own Legacies Before Attacking Tsatsu – Agyemang Duah Slams Tsikata Critics

Published

on


Chairman of the Oil Marketing Companies (OMCs), Kwaku Agyemang Duah has taken a swipe at young critics of lawyer Tsatsu Tsikata urging them to build their own legacies before attacking the revered lawyer.

In a post on social media, he noted that young Ghanaians describing Tsatsu as ‘overhyped’ lawyer must first concentrate on passing their exams and making it to the universities before they can be critical of him.

See his post below:

Lately, I have seen comments like “Tsatsu is overrated” and other demeaning statements on my timeline directed at the person and practice of Tsatsu Tsikata Esq.

I decided to find out on my own if indeed the hype surrounding Tsatsu Tsikata in certain quarters was right.

As an Asthmatic person, he mostly missed school. Interestingly however he entered Mfanstispim at 9years having been promoted above his school year. He ended up joining a class with his elder brother.

He graduated the University of Ghana at 18 and proceeded to Oxford to pursue a masters in law.

Did some tutoring at Oxford as a junior research person.

He proceeded back home to Ghana as a lecturer at the University of Ghana.

He taught most if not all the judges currently hearing his case as well as a lot of prominent lawyers currently practicing in this country and I am sure some in England as well given his time at Oxford.

A known asthmatic patient since infancy he is 70years old.

He has enjoyed a good life. Academically, professionally and has contributed greatly to our democracy and our country in many respects

He has represented Mr Sam Okudzeto, Jerry John Rawlings and others in one of the cases with our President Nana Addo Dankwa.

I once read a case bothering on a contract for a bottle of akpeteshie in which he was counsel for one of the parties. This case travelled all the way to the Supreme Court and I think even review.

I am sure most students of law in this country have read this particular case.

My point is that this is a man who has nothing to prove.

The term legend has been bundled around unnecessarily and I am not tempted to bestow it unto him.

In the name of politics, I have seen young people who could barely pass their wassce or even make it to uni throw all sort of insults at this man just because they don’t agree with him politically.

My people say “se wo nyiniy3 a y3nsere akwatia”.

To wit, you don’t laugh at the midget whilst still a child. You might not grow pass the height of the midget.

Before we walked this earth, stage or life others had already walked pass.

We can agree to disagree politically or ideologically but one thing is certain in this life “positions are temporary but class is permanent”

To my fellow youth, whilst at it, build your own legacy!

Koku Anyidoho Summoned By Asona-Minta Traditional Council Over ‘Unlawful Divorce’

Published

on


The Asona-Minta traditional Council has summoned former Deputy General Secretary of the National Democratic Congress, Koku Anyidoho over what they described as “unlawful divorce” of wife, Jennifer Boahemaa Yeboah.

Jennifer Boahemaa Yeboah accused Koku Anyidoho of throwing her out of their matrimonial home.

She also accused her husband of abandoning her at the hospital after she was involved in an accident in November last year, which took the life of the 8 years old daughter.

Following the alleged accusations by Madam Jennifer, the Asona-Minta traditional Council has summoned Koku Anyidoho and according to the council, “customarily one party cannot divorce the other party’s family member”.

Adding that “he unlawfully took two schnapps to the mother-in-law with his friends and not his family members who rallied solidly behind him”.

He has, therefore, urged him [Anyidoho] to appear before the council or drastic measures will be taken against him at Okyehen’s Judicial Committee in Kibi.

Below is the statement;

I Will Not Apologise To Bagbin Or Haruna, I Stand By My Statement – Sammy Gyamfi

Published

on


National Communications Officer of the NDC, Sammy Gyamfi has said that he still stands by his earlier statement accusing the leadership of the minority caucus in Parliament of betraying the Party.

Sammy Gyamfi has come under intense Pressure following a write up he published on social media accusing speaker of parliament,Alban Bagbin, leader of the minority, Haruna Iddrisu and others of betraying the NDC for their selfish interest.

Though many NDC stalwarts including Bawku Central MP, Mahama Ayariga and former MP for Kumbungu, Ras Mubarak have asked Sammy Gyamfi to Apologise, he insists he still stands by his words.

According to the young politician, his comments were meant to put the leadership of the minority caucus on their toes and not out of any personal vendetta.

“So it is to ensure that the right changes will happen and the right things will be done so that the NDC will grow. It is not out of spite for anybody, it is not out of disrespect for anybody but we must learn. The founder of the party was a brave man so sometimes, somebody can be your friend but you need to look at the collective good and collective interest and do certain things,” he told Power FM.
