Bagbin appoints Asiedu Nketiah as a member of Parliamentary Service Board

Bagbin appoints Asiedu Nketiah: The Speaker of Parliament, Rt. Hon. Alban Bagbin, on Monday 29 March 2021 named the General Secretary of National Democratic Congress (NDC), Johnson Asiedu Nketiah as part of a newly constituted 6-member Parliamentary Service Board.

Other members of the board include the current Clerk to Parliament, Cyril Nsiah, Minority Leader, Haruna Iddrisu, Majority Leader and the Minister of Parliamentary Affairs and Leader of Government Business in Parliament, Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu, and a former NPP majority leader Abraham Osei Aidoo.

The board is being chaired by the Speaker of Parliament.

The board is tasked with the responsibility to appoint the clerk to parliament and oversees the general welfare of MPs and staff of the parliamentary service.

A special advisory committee or leadership of the House advises the Speaker on the composition of the board.

Committee’s concern

On Nketiah’s inclusion, Bagbin noted that it raised some eyebrows from the advisory committee, however, he had the final say.

“It is considered by some members of the committee that the membership of Asiedu Nketiah amounts to an undesired intrusion into the governance of Parliament by a political party and may not in the circumstances bode well for the independence of Parliament since he is the General Secretary of a major opposition political party.

“Notwithstanding, Mr. Speaker is the person clothed with the authority to appoint the other four persons, who together with the Clerk-to-Parliament constitute the Parliamentary Service Board. It is also our considered opinion that Mr. Speaker will do what is appropriate,” Bagbin read out a letter he received from the committee to the House.

Speaker’s response

In response, the Speaker said on the floor: “But I want to note that the former Parliamentary Service Board had Honorable Hackman Owusu-Agyeman as a member of the board and Hackman Owusu-Agyeman later became the Chairman of the Council of Elders of the New Patriotic Party (NPP).

“That one was not an intrusion into the governance of Parliament by a political party. What is good for the gander is also good for the goose. Honorable members the board will be constituted and we will start our work.”

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

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.

Rev Owusu Bempah gives new serious prophecy about John Mahama

Prophet Owusu Bempah scares Mahama with new prophecy


Prophet Owusu Bempah scares Mahama; The Founder and general overseer of Glorious Word Power Ministry International, Prophet Isaac Owusu Bempah has given a new prophecy concerning NDC presidential candidate, John Mahama.

In a new video in front of his congregation, the man of God said Mahama has been cursed with back luck spiritually like Cain in the Bible.

So this is the reason why he can never win an election.

“He can stand for 1000 times and he’ll lose 1000 times. If you think I am lying, you can write it down and see”, he said authoritatively.

Owusu Bempah went on to say that Mahama needs a divine hand on his life to reverse that curse.

“It is only that divine hand that can lift the curse on him. If it is not so, people will deceive him that you’ll win but when he stands again, he’ll be disgraced. It’s not that people are not voting for him but it is the curse at work”.

“He needs someone experienced in spiritual things like myself to give him support or advice”, he stated.

He went on to say that when he says things of this nature, people come to insult him but he’ll love to warn those people to keep mute. Because the words are not from him.

“Anytime I speak you insult me, yet, the things I say come to pass, so can’t you see that the things I say are not ordinary?”, he asked.
