Accra ‘will see a remarkable difference’ by June – Criticised Sanitation Minister assures

Despite criticisms that he is failing at his job to keep the country clean, the Minister for Resources & Sanitation is confident of proving his detractors wrong, promising a major improvement in the sanitation condition in Accra soon.

Kofi Adda says Nana Akufo-Addo’s promise to make the capital city the cleanest in Africa is on course and has revealed a plan has already been mapped for implementation.

“We have just concluded the implementation plan and the allocation of the resources that have been pledged by the President. We are waiting for news from the Finance Ministry to begin to move on. That is where we are now. We have sensitised everybody to get them ready in order to move along,” he said in an interview on current affairs programme, Upfront, on the Joy News channel on MultiTV, Wednesday.

Mr Adda has been fending off public criticism for allegedly sleeping on the job while many parts of the city are engulfed with filth.

NDC presents Finance Minister with three daggers; resign, get sacked, face court

The Minority in Parliament has repeated an 11-month old demand for the Finance minister to resign because of allegations of conflict of interest in the raising of $2.5bn on the international market.

Led by their leader Haruna Iddrisu, the National Democratic Congress (NDC) MPs point to a CHRAJ report as an endorsement of their accusations first made in April 2017.

The report pointed out that the Finance minister violated constitutional, statutory, regulations and guidelines when he issued the $2.5bn bond, the MPs claim.

The statement from the Minority explained each of the breaches including Section 56 of the Public Financial Management Act 2016 and a constitutional breach of Article 181 of the1992 constitution.

Klo-Agogo students ‘packed like sardines’ in dormitories

As part of an ongoing campaign by Joy News to highlight issues in the implementation of the free SHS programme, the spotlight falls on Klo-Agogo Senior High School, where dormitories are overcrowded.

Students are forced to roll out their mattresses on the floor due to unavailable beds.

A bed meant to accommodate one student now squeaks to the weight of two or more students huddling to get a night’s sleep.

The free SHS policy that begun in September this year increased school enrollment in all Senior High Schools across the country, bringing untold difficulties on school administrators due partly to what many analysts say is the result of an in exhaustive planning process.

The school administrators, many of them overwhelmed by the numbers, are currently ensuring the smooth running of the program in spite of the challenges.

Ghana Launches Smart Drivers' License

The Driver and Vehicle Licensing Authority (DVLA) will today, Tuesday, November 7, 2017, begin issuing smart drivers' licenses across the country.

 

Vice President Dr Mahamudu Bawumia will launch the new Smart Drivers’ License that has been touted to be among the most secured in the world.

 

Director in charge of Driving Training, Testing and Licencing at the DVLA, Cheyuo Wienna Musah, says the card will be West Africa’s first.

 

The new digital card will fast-track the acquisition of new drivers' licenses as applicants will now be able to obtain it within two to four weeks of application.

 

The digital drivers' licence is part of government’s target to remove the human interface from the process of issuing new licencing.

 

Middlemen, popularly called “gorro boys” have been blamed for making the acquisition of new licences a chaotic process.

I Will Lead A First Class Team To Rebuild Ghana – Akufo-Addo

The 2016 presidential candidate of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, says victory for the party in the 2016 general election is of the utmost necessity.
 
This according to him, will provide Ghanaians with the opportunity to rebuild a country that has every sector of its economy in tatters under the governing National Democratic Congress.
 
With the news of Ghana being classified as a ‘Highly Indebted Poor Country’ by the International Monetary Fund, again, under an NDC-led government, Nana Akufo-Addo is calling on Ghanaians not to lose hope, as Ghana’s potential, under right leadership, is enormous.
 
The NPP, according to Nana Akufo-Addo, as shown under the eight-year government of President Kufuor, has the track record of being able to turn around the fortunes of the country, evidenced in taking Ghana out of HIPC and transforming it into a Middle Income Country, within that short period.

The National Organizer of the governing National Democratic Congress (NDC), Yaw Boateng Gyan, says the party risks losing the 2016 general elections if it does not elect a solid team to back President John Dramani Mahama.
According to him, the NDC faces vibrant and well prepared opposition parties like New Patriotic Party (NPP) and thus cannot elect inexperienced people to lead the 2016 campaign.
Yaw Boateng Gyan, who is seeking to retain his seat was speaking on Asempa FM’s “Ekosii Sen” programme Tuesday.
The ruling party is scheduled to hold its delegates congress before the end of the year. Many leading members have expressed interest in various positions especially those of Chairman and National Organizer.

Photo credit: Myjoyonline

Lawyer for sued author J. A Larbi has said the work on Ghana’s governance transitions since 1992, has nothing incriminating against the plaintiff and former president Jerry John Rawlings.
“It is just the history of Ghana, there is nothing in the book that is not known to the ordinary Ghanaian”, J. A Larbi said of his client and author, Professor Kwame Danso-Boafo.
He said the book will focus on Ghana’s interests, how the country managed to exit from military dictatorship to civilian rule when other countries were struggling to do that.
When asked why the former president has sued the author, Mr Larbi said former president Rawlings has not indicated what problem he really has with the book.
“He has not specified any page in the book over which he has a problem. There is not a single indication in the writ filed about what he objects to in the book”.

GMO lies and outdated Science

Photo Source: MyJoyOnline.com

Ghana’s MPs, USAID and its contractors, and their GMO tame scientists all remain committed to passing the Plant Breeders Bill and imposing GMOs on Ghanaian farmers and public. They expect the public to unquestioningly respect this outdated science as if it were the word of God. Those who love and appreciate science know that what is known is never final. 
The known is always the starting point for asking new and more questions, seeking facts, and drawing conclusions based on data driven analysis.  The GMO perpetrators hate genuine science, it often gives them information they do not want people to know, information that endangers their profits and monopoly control.

The National House of Chiefs has cautioned against the politicization of a donation by president John Mahama

The National House of Chiefs has cautioned against the politicization of a donation by president John Mahama to the institution in Kumasi, Wednesday.
Some persons including Rt. Rev. Stephen Bosomtwe Ayensu, the Methodist Bishop of Obuasi Diocese, described as "naked politics", the presentation of 13 pick-up vehicles to the National House of Chiefs by president John Mahama at a meeting with members of the House in Kumasi.
It was in fulfillment of a promise  the president made to the chiefs sometime ago.
 The Rev. Minister in an interview on Adom FM Thursday described it as: "a total waste of government money that is being spent by the politicians on such cheap things just to get some votes".
But a statement issued Friday and signed by President of the National House Of Chiefs, Wulugu Naba Naa Prof. John S. Nabil described such comments as uninformed.
