Disappointing Amidu still hounding NDC – Ayine

The Bolgatanga East MP, Dr. Dominic Ayine, believes the Special Prosecutor is still exhibiting bias against elements of the National Democratic Congress.

Speaking on Eyewitness News, Dr. Ayine briefly responded to suggestions from Mr. Amidu that some leading NDC MPs tried to cover up the double salary scandal.

The Special Prosecutor, in an exclusive interview with Citi News, maintained that the Criminal Investigations Department (CID) must probe the allegations without any distractions.

“The ordinary man going to jail is a human being like a Ghanaian. I don’t like this whole idea about political elite. Honourables you are supposed to be, and then you are just fleecing the country. Indeed, that is an offence of abuse of office for private gain,” Mr. Amidu stressed.

But Dr Ayine noted that this was the latest of many unsubstantiated allegations Mr Amidu has fired the way of the NDC.

Supreme Court dismisses application in Martin Amidu eligibility case

The Supreme Court has dismissed an application by Dr Dominic Ayine, former Deputy Attorney-General, seeking to file a supplementary statement of case in the challenge of the eligibility of Mr Martin Amidu to hold the Office of Special Prosecutor.

The Sole Judge, Mr Justice Gabriel Pwamang, held that the application was not supported by the rules of the court and the court does not find any merit in it.

Justice Pwamang further held that Dr Ayine could only file for amendment of his statement of case.

The court, however, did not award cost against the applicant.

The former deputy Attorney-General in his opinion stated that Mr Amidu, who was 66 years old, was too old to hold public office, under which the Special Prosecutor’s position fell.

Dr Ayine held further that “any other interpretation would result in an unlawful amendment of Article 199 of the Constitution by legislation.”

President launches Action Plan to combat Anti-microbial resistance

President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo on Wednesday launched Ghana’s Anti-microbial Resistance National Policy and Action Plan, calling on Ghanaians to effect change in the handling of antimicrobials to combat the resistance phenomenon.

Noting that though antimicrobials had, over the course of many years, been used to prevent and treat microbial infections, he pointed out that the significant gains made in the field of infectious disease, animal and crop health, as well as livestock and aquaculture was being threatened by the increasing case of resistance.

Launching the two documents at the Accra International Conference Centre, President Akufo-Addo was emphatic that the phenomenon of anti-microbial resistance was a grave threat to the realisation of the Sustainable Development Goal 3, which demanded that countries ensured healthy lives and the promotion of wellbeing for all at all ages.

Rawlings And Akufo Addo Now In Bed - Victor Smith

“Anytime he [Rawlings] gets the opportunity, he knocks Atta Mills, he knocks Kufuor, he knocks Mahama. The only person he is not hitting on in this current administration is the current President”.

This is crystal clear, self-explanatory lines from the former aide to the former first family the Rawlingses, Ambassador Victor Smith who is accusing his former boss of double standards and being in bed with the current President of Ghana, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo who used to be his ‘archenemy’ in the politics of Ghana.

According to Mr Smith the only reason that can be ascribed to this sudden ‘coziness’ between the former public ‘enemies’; the former first family and the current President is one- “he [Rawlings] is in bed with him [Akufo-Addo].”, Mr Victor Smith concluded.

Former President Jerry Rawlings has chastised the leadership of the opposition NDC over the neglect of Martin Amidu.

My ‘mouth’ is giving me problems - Kennedy Agyapong

New Patriotic Party Member of Parliament for Assin Central Hon Kennedy Agyapong has revealed “his mouth” is giving him problems, making it difficult for him to access some of the little privileges that come with his party being in power.

MYNEWSGH.COM had earlier reported how Mr. Kennedy Agyapong endeared himself to the grassroots of the ruling NPP by being a ‘lone’ and ‘loud’ voice of dissent, being one of the fiercest critics of the government he helped bring to power.

The lawmaker had leveled wild allegations against some unnamed presidential staffers indicating that they demanded a minimum of $20,000 from persons seeking to see the president before allowing them, a comment that has been widely criticized by the party.

Court of Appeal annuls Judgement Debt findings against Woyome

The Court of Appeal has annulled certain adverse findings made by the Judgement Debt Commission against the businessman Mr Alfred Agbesi Woyome with regard to the GHc51.2 million judgement debt paid to him by the state.

In a ruling on Thursday, the three-member panel of the court held that the findings made by the commission were a breach of natural justice because Mr Woyome was not heard by the commission before those adverse findings were made.

“It is important to emphasise that what underpins our jurisprudence as common law jurisdiction — that no man be condemned before he is heard — be upheld in all times,’’ it held.

Apart from setting aside the findings, the court further ordered the findings to be expunged from the commission’s report and the White Paper on the report.

The panel was presided over by Mr Justice Victor Ofoe, with Mr Justice Senyo Dzamefe and Mrs Justice M.M. Agyemang as the other members.

Obiri Boahen is a ‘loose-talker’ and ‘politically finished’ – Kweku Baako

The Editor-in-Chief of the New Crusading Guide newspaper, Abdul Malik Kweku Baako has reiterated the need for the deputy general secretary of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Nana Obiri Boahen to resign since he was a “loose-talker” and “politically finished.”

To him, even though, Obiri Boahen deserve praises for the political “courage” with which, he came out to admit it was his voice on the leaked tape in which he alleged the presidency supported the NPP’s 2017 Cape Coast conference with Ghc50billion, everything else apart from that courage was a “disaster.”

Referring to his earlier call for his resignation on Joy FM’s news analysis programme, Newsfile on Saturday, Mr Baako said, “I’m unable to retract or revise what I said earlier to that effect, perhaps it will be in his own interest if he resigned even before the party institutes any investigations or discipline proceedings.”
