Till Akufo-Addo Wakes Up From His Short Sleep And Pays Us, My Stance On Menzgold Remains The Same – Bulldog

Published

on


Artiste Manager Lawrence Nana Asiamah Hanson popularly known as Bulldog has remained resolute on his stance concerning locked up funds in defunct Menzgold dealership.

In a Facebook post narrating how he ended up at the office of the NIB for ‘threatening the President of the country., he noted that he’ll not stop being a critic of the President and his government until customers locked up funds are paid.

“Emotions remain tempestuous until Akuffo Addo wakes up from his usual catnap and ensures myself and many others receive their locked up funds from Menzgold under his administration.”

THE HANDOVER

I have always taken a detour onto the Ahmadou Ahindjo road into the enclaves of north ridge in steering my way to Adabraka.

White giant walls stand in awe like Jericho’s on Sekou Toure street, with strong, hard silvery-gray metal gates to complement, a terror inducing site from all view points.

Accounts I’d heard of this establishment, working as a political caricaturist for Ghana’s most influential private newspaper of all time — The Ghanaian Chronicle, evoked quiver and heightened the enthrallment that surrounds it — whenever I drive down the serene and tranquil lighted streets in front of the National Intelligence Bureau (NIB).

My wonderment became discernibly evident in the end, when sounds of latches to the cast-iron gray gates unbarred to honking of a motorcade, revealing the interior of this evocative landmark.

Indelible memories of tales told by seasoned journalists William Nyarko and Alfred Ogbamey, senior colleagues of mine at our offices in Kokomlemle, back in nineteen ninety eight of this unsettling address immediately sent shivers down my spine.

We disembarked from the vehicles amidst armed guards and was escorted to the counter office — I was unshackled on arrival.

My belongings were handed over to officials at the counter by escorts. With an obsessive interest, I was furnished with a steel bench behind the counter.

The head of the counter office attended to me later and introduced himself.

He was responsible for my well-being he said and asked if I needed something — octopus salad with jollof rice from Champion Dishes in Adabraka or fufu plus fried red fish light soup from Heavy Doo chop bar in Kokomlemle is my habitual bill of fare.

My crave for the latter outweighed and out rivaled the former, knowing the day was going to be a long one in view of where I was.

“I will have fufu” I said — “I will get you fufu” he retorted — striding out of the office.

In twenty minutes the door creaked open, another top administrative official of the NIB with his face mask on stepped in — remarkable on his neatly sewn kaftan was the coat of arms of Ghana broach, clasped on the left side of his breast pocket.

He appeared and the room halted into orderliness and obeisance — “I hear you want to eat fufu.” he uttered, looking in my direction from his position in front of the counter, my answer was affirmative.

He then pointed out that fufu is a delicacy for Akuapems. I’m Akuapem, I informed him. He let out a sigh, and said “we Akuapems are mindful of our tongue” — I have a mental problem, I said in jest — the room broke into guffaws at my remark.

My fufu arrived not long after.

I remained behind the counter a few hours after my meal, awaiting orders from above to the counter office on what my kismet will be.

The process of admittance started a little after seventeen hundred hours, after a call was received for my detention — my personal information was penned into a huge foolscap book: Name, age, profession, etc.

Stripped thereupon and rigged out into cell vestments.

On the way to be cooped up, it almost felt like going on the set of United Showbiz. Striding in a jalabiya that had ‘BNI CELLS’ inscribed on it.

I held my breadth as audible clicks to inserted keys turned to unfasten padlocks to the steel door.

One of the operatives wanted to know if I was claustrophobic — “Chale dis no be my first time o” — my response caused him to titter.

I was ushered into a dark cold cell and was bid farewell.

PS.

The masked armed men that swooped my premises earlier were Akuffo Addo’s henchmen, disguised as intelligence officers. I discovered days after.

Emotions remain tempestuous until Akuffo Addo wakes up from his usual catnap and ensures myself and many others receive their locked up funds from Menzgold under his administration.

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.

Petition: You Can’t Say You Lost Because Jean Mensah Didn’t Testify – Ayikoi Otoo To Mahama

Published

on


Former President John Dramani Mahama cannot blame his defeat in the election petition on Electoral Commission boss, Jean Mensah’s refusal to mount the witness box, a former Attorney General, Nii Ayikoi Otoo has said.

Speaking to Abena Tabi, host of the KEY POINTS on TV3 Saturday March 6, Mr Otoo noted that the duty lied on the petitioner to prove his case and not rely on the EC Chair.

“Nobody should say the cases was dismissed because the EC chair did nit mount the box,” he said adding that “You had a very bad.”

His comment comes after Mr Mahama chastised the EC boss after the final verdict claiming the court aided her from accounting to the people of Ghana by evading cross examination.

Ghanaians will also remember this 2021 Election Petition for that profound moment when the Chairperson of the Electoral Commission opted to evade public scrutiny,: Mahama said.

“Everything was done in this trial to prevent the Commission from accounting to the people in whose name they hold office.

“Requests for Interrogatories were dismissed. A request to inspect documents in the possession of he Commission was turned down. The request for admission of facts was ignored.

“Worse still, she was aided by her counsel and the court to avoid explaining to the good people of Ghana from her own testimony, under oath in a properly constituted court of law, the errors she herself admits to have committed in the declaration of the 2020 Presidential election results.

“This is a clear stab in the heart of transparency and accountability to the sovereign people of Ghana. Whatever the reasons for not allowing Mrs. Jean Mensa to testify or answer any questions, it leaves an embarrassing stain, not only on our justice delivery system but also, on the nation’s electoral system, which has deepened the grave doubts harboured by many Ghanaians about the true outcome of the December 2020 Presidential Election.

“The motto of Ghana’s Electoral Commission is Transparency, Fairness and Integrity – principles the key actors clearly failed to live up to on this occasion. The refusal to account to Ghanaians, further, sets the worrying precedent – and I do really worry about this dangerous precedent – that may allow other heads of state institutions to adopt an approach of opacity and non-accountability in their work.

“Just because they can rely on unconvincing interpretations of our laws to shield them from scrutiny in the near future. I hope and pray that time will prove me wrong. There is a famous legal maxim brought into common use by Lord Chief Justice Hewart in 1924, that ‘Justice must not only be done but should manifestly and undoubtedly seen to be done’.”
