You May Have Your Differences, But Don’t Set Ghana Ablaze- Manasseh Azure Cautions NDC And NPP

Published

on


Award-winning Investigative Journalist, Manasseh Azure Awuni has cautioned the two main political parties in the country; NDC and NPP to ensure that they do not allow their differences to set the country ablaze as we approach election 2020.

In an article published under ‘The Africa We Want’ project which is Mobilizing Civil Society Support for Implementation of the African Governance Architecture and is being implemented with funding support from the European Commission, the renowned Journalist summarized the mood of the Country as we head for the polls in December.

The Investigative Journalist made some thought-provoking observations in the write-up as follows:

I have said that Ghana’s democracy is growing but not maturing because we have not strengthened our democratic institutions. Our governance is anything but transparent. It took two decades of active civil society campaign to get the Right to Information Act passed. A year after its passage, however, some state institutions are using disingenuous reasons to deny those who invoke the law to get public information.

Transparency and trust are important ingredients lacking in Ghana’s democratic soup. Going into this election, the main opposition party does not trust that the Electoral Commission will be a fair referee. This has always been the case in the history of Ghana but recent developments at the election body have heightened suspicions and mistrust.

In the 2016 election, the Chairperson of the Electoral Commission was appointed by then-incumbent President John Mahama, who was contesting that election. The long-serving Dr Kwadwo Afari Gyan had retired and as the constitution required, the President had to get his replacement. This did not sit well with the opposition parties at the time.

When the opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP), led by Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo won that election, the Chairperson of the Electoral Commission was removed from office on the basis of procurement infractions.

Fight For Yourselves Not Politicians, They Can’t Make Your Life Better – Shatta Wale Advises Electorates

Published

Ahead of election 2020, Ghanaian dancehall crooner, Shatta Wale has advised voters to maintain the peace and stability in the country.

He has admonished party faithfuls to handle their differences in a more decorous manner other than using the route of physical fight.

In an interview on Hitz FM with Andy Dosty on Friday, October 30, Shatta stated that he found no reason why people will fight for politicians.

According to him, the politicians can’t change anyone’s life, therefore people should fight for themselves not politicians.

He added that people should just go cast their vote on December 7 and go home other than engaging in needless fights for politicians.

Mahama Hates Ofori-Atta With Passion – Kwamena Duncan

Published

on


Central Regional Minister, Kwamena Duncan has slammed former president John Dramani Mahama over consistent comments about Finance Minster, Ken Ofori-Atta which suggested he’s on a borrowing spree.

Mr Mahama had alleged that Ofori-Atta had used his bank, Data Bank to claim loans in the name of the country to keep his bank in business.

However, Kwamena Duncan stressed that those are outright lies borne out of pure hatred for the Finance Minister.

According to him, Mahama keeps churning out such lies about Ofori-Atta because he hates him with passion; adding that the Finance minister is the best performing minister under the Akufo-Addo administration.

Some Of The Most Corrupt People Are Not Into Politics But Politicians….. – Manasseh Awuni

Published

on


Award-winning Ghanaian journalist Mannaseh Azure Awuni has added his voice to the growing corruption conversation as election 2020 approaches.

According to him, he believes some of the most corrupt Ghanaians may not be into politics but the corrupt acts of politicians far outweighs the rest.

Manasseh said 2020 Baah-Wiredu Memorial Lecture;

“In discussing corruption, we often think of only politicians, but I dare say some of the most corrupt people in this country are not into politics. Putting emphasis on the political class is, however, not misplaced because the politicians, when in office, have the power to curb corruption. They also control a chunk of the nation’s resources.

“What a thousand extremely corrupt policemen or women can extort by way of “road duty allowance” in their lifetime cannot match the kickback from a single contract awarded by a political office holder.

“The fecal matter of one elephant, our elders have noted, is definitely heavier than the combined effort of a million mosquitoes with acute diarrhea.”
