Akufo-Addo has neglected Ashanti Region – Ofosu-Ampofo

Published

on

The National Chairman of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Samuel Ofosu-Ampofo, says the Ashanti Region has seen no development under the Akufo-Addo administration, despite voting massively for him in the 2016 general elections.

He said the painful aspect of the situation is that the President has also refused to complete various developmental projects that the Mahama administration started in the region.

Addressing NDC supporters at Bosomkyekye in the Mampong constituency on Saturday, Ofosu-Ampofo alleged that instead of the President building development projects, he has specialised in re-naming projects that his government inherited from past administrations.

“Build your own projects and name them and stop re-naming the ones you didn’t build,” Ofosu-Ampofo said.

The NDC’s National Chairman said his party has kept good faith with the Ashanti Region in terms of development projects, including the construction of the Kejetia market, various hospital projects, schools and the Barekese Water Expansion Projects, among others.

Ofosu-Ampofo assured the people that Mahama will continue all abandoned projects in the Ashanti Region and will work hard to provide decent and sustainable jobs.

Protecting jobs
He said Mahama is also committed to protecting the thousands of jobs in the local automotive industry, including those in Suame Magazine, Abossey Okai, Kokompe and others, adding that unlike President Akufo-Addo, Mahama is a “trust-worthy leader” who will not waste state resources.

“Mr. Mahama will not waste public resources like we are seeing today where even a chair belonging to the President is having its own fully air-condition car following him everywhere. Mahama is a servant and he is going to serve to promote development for every Ghanaian,” he said.

Ofosu-Ampofo, therefore, urged electorates to vote for Mahama in the 7 December 2020 general elections to enable him to create prosperity for all by providing jobs, implementing Free Primary Healthcare for all, Free Technical and Vocational Education and Training (Free T-VET), as well as, state-sponsored National Apprenticeship Programme to equip the youth with employable skills.

Uber removes cancellation fees

Uber removes cancellation fees it charges on cancelled trips

Ridesharing giant Uber has announced the removal of cancellation fees it charges on trips that are cancelled by either drivers or riders.

In the circular sent to all stakeholders, the company explained that after careful study of the market, it has come to realise that removing the trip cancellation charges will ensure that the Uber platform remains the best option for all.

Now going forward if you are 5 minutes late, drivers may choose to cancel the request with no penalty.

The circular reads:

Cancellation fees on Uber have now been removed. This means that no charges will be applied on cancelled trips.

At Uber, we are always monitoring market dynamics and fare structures to ensure our app continues to be the best option for you.

Our data shows that cancellation fees often dissuade you from taking a trip; removing them will have a minimal impact on drivers’ overall earnings while encouraging you to take more trips.
Please note, if you are more than 5 minutes late drivers may choose to cancel trips at no penalty to them.

This new development will definitely be welcomed by the users of the Uber app.

Things are not as bad as today as they were when NDC was in power – Kofi Bentsil

A Vice President of IMANI Africa, Kofi Bentil, has said that though things are not what Ghanaians expect under the Akufo-Addo administration, but they are far better than they were under Mahama.

Sharing his views on the botched FixtheCountry demonstration with its concomitant issues on JoyNews’ Newsfile on Saturday, May 8, 2021, Mr. Bentil indicated that much as there appears to be a lot of challenges in the system now, they cannot be worse than when John Mahama was in power.

“Things are bad but they’re not as bad as they were under Mahama. I repeat, things aren’t good but they are better than we experienced under the NDC. Our expectations have not been met but one cannot say that what we went through under Mahama was better than now. No!” he emphasized.

A group of Ghanaians, it could be recalled, began a social media campaign aimed at asking the leadership of this country to fix the system since, in their views, things have gone bad.

Dubbed ‘FixtheCountry’, the people behind it have raised issues with water supply, electricity supply, unemployment, increase in taxes and levies, general economic situation in the country as the drive behind this campaign.

A street demonstration towards baring their teeth to the Akufo-Addo administration over the aforementioned issues has been put on hold due to a restraining order against them by the Ghana Police Service citing COVID-19 restrictions.

I Will Never Go Hungry Even If Kwaku Oteng Sacks Me From ABN – Captain Smart

I Will Never Go Hungry: The  30 days suspension of Captain Smart from Angel Broadcasting Network ABN has caused a stir among Ghanaians and people are talking and wondering why Captain Smart who recently resigned from Adom FM and joined ABN has to be put on suspension.

Well, the obvious reason may be the firebrand journalist’s continuous attack on politicians whom he feels are corrupt and not helping the nation.

Paul Adom Otchere, host of Good Evening Ghana on Metro TV had an interview with Captain Smart on his show largely on his suspension from Angel Broadcasting Network. In the interview, Smart made it clear to his critic in the industry who were rejoicing at his suspension that he will never go hungry even if the founder of the media company sacks him.

He also revealed that his suspension is for a month and that after it has expired he will go back to the radio station and continue his work as usual.

He said, “I have brain, my brain is working so there is no way I will go hungry even if the president of ABN decides to terminate my contract”.

“If Kweku Oteng says he cannot work with me again, Praise God, I will leave and will never get hungry because I’m not a lazy person, Yes my brain works. So I called Doc and he said people in government are calling him and the government is using the Ghana Revenue Authority because they say I talk too much” he added.
