We’ll support new Special Prosecutor to fight corruption – Mahama

Former President John Dramani Mahama is hopeful that the new Special Prosecutor, Kissi Adjebeng, will deal with corruption in the country. John Dramani Mahama has constantly accused President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo of being unable to deal with corrupt officials in his government. Speaking on Koforidua-based Sunrise FM during his thank-you tour of the Eastern Region, the former president said he is hopeful the newly appointed Special Prosecutor, will discharge his duties in the interest of Ghanaians. “If President Akufo-Addo keeps exonerating his appointees engaged in corruption, the act will never stop. The government must take steps to stem corruption in the country. We have a new Special Prosecutor. Looking at how he has started his work, we are all hopeful that h...

Gabby Otchere-Darko ‘endorses’ Sam George as NDC’s next flagbearer

Lawyer Gabby Asare Otchere-Darko has in jest advised the National Democratic Congress (NDC) to select its Member of Parliament (MP) for Ningo-Prampram Constituency as its next Presidential Candidate. Gabby Otchere Darko tweeted thus on Saturday, October 9 https://twitter.com/GabbyDarko/status/1446720909444792325?s=20 This may have stemmed from the MP’s advocacy against the rights of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer and intersex (LGBTQI) community in the country. He is championing the Promotion of Proper Human Sexual Rights and Ghanaian Family Values Bill, which is at its consideration stage. But Sam George appears not to be distracted by the New Patriotic Party (NPP) member’s tweet and replied that he is focused on majorly ensuring the return of John Dramani...

Mahama takes partial credit for success of WHO-approved Malaria vaccine

Former President John Dramani Mahama has commended the World Health Organisation (WHO) for approving the malaria vaccine after years of trial. According to him, the approval is "refreshing and promising." He further attributed the success of the Malaria vaccine to the keen interest and active participation of his administration in 2016. "It is refreshing and promising to learn that our expression of interest in 2016 to the WHO and active participation has led to the approval of the vaccine to be deployed in Sub-Saharan Africa and other Malaria-endemic regions". He stated that the vaccines will ensure the safety of millions of children from avoidable deaths. "I am elated at the prospect of vaccinating millions of African children who will be saved from avoidable deaths a...

Is President Mahama not undermining democracy?

Forget Do or Die! The issues are much bigger than that. Why has ex-President Mahama turned his supposed Thank You Tour into a subversive mission of the democracy we have built since 1992? Pay attention to what he has been saying on the tour “The elections were clearly rigged.” “There was overstuffing of ballot papers in several constituencies.” “Soldiers were deployed purposely to kill people and suppress the will to vote”. These are but a few of the things President Mahama has been saying on his tour.Do or Die caught the attention of everyone because it sounded macabre. However, pay attention to the fine print and you will discover a sinister ploy to reduce the confidence of the people in the democracy we are running. Murdering democracy John Mahama certainly has the righ...

Mahama Is On Course To Curb Corruption! (1)

Some of us, to be quite honest, were extremely astonished to listen to His Excellency former President John Dramani Mahama blissfully censuring President Akufo-Addo for allegedly refusing to clamp down on sleazes and corruption. It is somewhat unfair for anybody to infer that President Akufo-Addo has done nothing at all to curb the canker of corruption since assuming power. In as much as discerning Ghanaians have every right to grouch and bemoan the lack of prosecutions in the alleged bribery and corruption scandals, it is unfair for anyone to blame Akufo-Addo and side-line the institutions which have the mandate to investigate and prosecute corruption suspects. It would only take an inveterate propagandist or a disputatious character to suggest somewhat anecdotally that Akuf...

‘Do or die’ does not mean violence – Rev Owusu Bempah defends Mahama

Former President John Mahama has gotten an unlikely defender of his ‘do or die’ comment that has invited criticisms from some quarters. Founder and leader of the Glorious Word and Power Ministries, Rev Isaac Owusu Bempah, who is known for openly criticising Mr Mahama, has defended the former President over what many say was a gaffe.  According to Rev Owusu Bempah, the expression is not a call to violence in the next election. Even Kotoko and Hearts supporters say ‘do or die’ so I don’t believe Mahama meant any harm. Just as I defended ‘all die be die’, I don’t think ‘do or die’ is a call to violence, he told local language radio station, Okay FM. During his ‘Thank You’ tour of the Bono East Region, Mr Mahama said because of the alleged widespread abuse of Executive po...

Joseph Yamin Threatens Peace Council Over Mahama ‘Do or Die’ Comment

Former deputy Minister of Youth and Sports under the erstwhile NDC administration, Joseph Yamin has threatened to deal with any member of the Peace Council and other Christian bodies in the country who dare to speak against former President John Mahama’s infamous do or die proclamation. According to the former Deputy Sports Minister, the Peace Council members are hypocrites and in the pockets of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP), hence they dont have locus to speak against the twice defeated former President. He indicated that the Peace Council only comes out to bash the NDC when they make any statement they do not agree with.
