Speaker of Parliament Is An Oppressive Leader – Mahama Jabs

Published

on


Former President John Dramani Mahama has stated that Speaker of Parliament, Prof Mike Ocquaye is an oppressive leader who doesn’t permit free expression.

The National Democratic Congress (NDC) flagbearer in a tour at the Savannah Region said, “today, you cannot expect justice when you go to the judicatory, you can’t speak in parliament, you have an oppressive Speaker who won’t allow them to freely express themselves.”

According to him President Akufo Addo has politicised stated institutions with the Judiciary and Parliament included.

He further admonished the government for allowing Financial Institutions to collapse when they could have done something to save them.

“Financial institutions have been collapsed, Ghanaians’ money has been locked up. You needed GHS9 billion to save those banks and financial institutions that collapsed but because of politics, somebody decided to closed them down. Now, Ghana is spending GHC22billion to pay the deposits of people whose monies were locked up,” he bemoaned.

He added, “what kind of sense is this? You won’t spend GHC9 billion to save the banks but you pay GHC22billion to pay back peoples’ deposits and you can’t even pay.”

“I heard the president say he has paid 98 per cent of the depositors. We should ask the depositors how have they received their money?”

“The NDC in 2016 lost 55 parliamentary seats. By my assessment and going into 2020 we already secure, subject to the elections, about 47 of those seats back but we need to work harder in order to get it,” he said.

“In the Northern [region] we are closing in on five seats, in the Upper West four seats, Central region about eight seats, one in the Volta Region.”

“I will leave Greater Accra out of my list, I will leave out Brong Ahafo. So former President Mahama will be president January 7 and he will make a better president because he will right his own wrongs and imperfections and right the wrongs and imperfections of Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.”

Donkeys Will Soon Be Legalised As Means Of Transportation After Okada – Murtala Mohammed

Published

on


Former National Secretary, of the Progressive People’s Party (PPP), Murtala Mohammed has criticised the idea of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) to legalise the operations of okada when they win power on December 7, 2020.

In a statement, Murtala noted that only an unserious political party will consider legalising okada.

What many people dont know about this Okada is that, the motor cycle are not for the riders but some faceless petty bourgeois hiding in government parastatal like the police, military ministries and cooperate institutions.”

He said: ”If we sit aloof to allow the legitimization of Okada, we shall soon legitimize the use of Donkeys as means of transport. I say this because every business is driven by profit. If a business man will not use fuel and can reduce other expenditure like maintenance, why will he not venture into “Donkey Transport System” as a mode of transport?”

OKADA POLITICS: YOU MIGHT AS WELL LEGALIZE THE USE OF DONKEYS AS A MODE OF TRANSPORT

The notion or idea to legalize Okada is lazy venture to say the least. I just can’t imagine that as people we could decide to rationalize our inefficiencies and failures by legalizing Okada instead addressing the issue head on. This is akin to a father, who after failing to stop his nymphomania daughter, decides to start collecting money from men to have affair with her. This is a clear manifestation of irresponsibility, lack of ideas or a lazy man’s approach to the Okada nemesis.

I cannot imagine for once, how any serious party or group could conceive such an idea if not for cheap political capital.

The menace of Okada is a matter of employment. It’s an improvisation as a result of joblessness and poor traffic and transport system in Ghana. The lasting solution to it is not to legitimize it but to build a complete transport and rail system to curb it. We should not substitute the long and difficult lasting solution for a simplistic and short-cut approach to solicit vote over the safety and well-being of the youth.

If we sit aloof to allow the legitimization of Okada, we shall soon legitimize the use of Donkeys as means of transport. I say this because every business is driven by profit. If a business man will not use fuel and can reduce other expenditure like maintenance, why will he not venture into “Donkey Transport System” as a mode of transport?

What many people don’t know about this Okada is that, the motor cycle are not for the riders but some faceless petty bourgeois hiding in government parastatal like the police, military ministries and cooperate institutions.

Too much jokes in this country. #Stap it!
