NDC goes to court

NDC goes to court: The Member of Parliament for Sagnerigu Constituency in the Northern Region hinted of his party’s decision to go to court to seek redress on the December 7 elections.

Alhassan Bashir Fuseini, popularly known as Alhaji A.B.A Fuseini, said no one can force the National Democratic Congress (NDC) to go to court until they have gathered all their evidence.

All the 106 National Democratic Congress (NDC) Members of Parliament in the Seventh Parliament of Ghana marched to the headquarters of the Electoral Commission (EC) on Tuesday, December 22.

The march was to prevail on the EC to overturn its declaration of President Akufo-Addo as the winner of the 2020 elections.

There has been a series of protests by NDC supporters across the country against the EC’s declaration of President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo as the president-elect of Ghana after the December 7 polls.

Member of Parliament for South Dayi Constituency in the Volta Region Rockson-Nelson Etse Kwami Dafeamekpor, who hinted of Tuesday’s march on Onua TV’s 100 Degrees on Monday, explained that the leadership of the party will not sit for the EC to take them for granted.

When the host, Kwame Tutu, asked what next after the series of demonstrations by his party’s supporters, yet yielding no results, the NDC MP said, “you wait and see what will happen tomorrow”.

Speaking on the issues on Onua TV‘s Maakye jointly hosted by Afia Tagor and Adwoa Konadu-Yiadom on Tuesday, Alhaji A.B.A Fuseini hinted in Twi that “we are going to court on 28th December. We are going to court”.

He added: “We are walking to the EC office to register our protest and present a petition to the EC”.

The former Northern Regional Minister said, “we are gathering our evidence and we are going to court on December 28 because we will not allow such stealing in the country”.

Meaning of the alpha-numeric characters of vehicular number plates in Ghana

Before a vehicle can be used for either private or commercial purpose in Ghana, it must be registered with the Drivers and Vehicular Licencing Authority (DVLA), a mandated authority responsible for keeping the licencing database of drivers and vehicles.

A registered vehicle is assigned a unique registration number on an aluminium plate which must be affixed at both the front and back of the vehicle. This number is permanent for that specific vehicle as it serves as an identifier tied to the vehicle chassis number and the true owner.

The number on the metal plate is specially designed to allow readability from afar.

One may wonder what those numbers prefixed with letters actually mean. Well, the registration number has three parts;

  1. Two-letter alphabets: These are the regional codes (representing the various regions where DVLA registers vehicles)
  2. 4-digit numeric codes: the vehicle registration counts unique to every vehicle.
  3. Registration year.

The regional codes which are usually represented with two letters imply the various region in Ghana where there is a DVLA office and those vehicles that are registered there have their registration numbers prefixed with the region’s 2-letter code.  DVLA has vehicular registration offices in almost all regions. The following are the regions with their codes;

ASAEAW = Ashanti Region *

BA = Brong-Ahafo Region*

CR = Central Region

ER = Eastern Region

GRGCGEGLGMGNGTGSGWGYGX = Greater Accra Region

NR = Northern Region

UE = Upper East Region*

UW = Upper West Region*

VR = Volta Region

WR = Western Region

 

The 1-4-digit numbers are the unique numbers that imply the number of vehicles registered. For example, the first vehicle to be registered at Tamale which is in the Northern Region in the year 2012. The registration number will therefore be given as  NR 1 2012

Accra Doctor kills a newly-wed patient after mistakenly cutting her intestines

Accra Doctor kills a newly-wed patient: It has come to light that a supposed medical doctor in Accra has caused the untimely death of a newly married woman after a botched medical operation to rid the woman of fibroid.

The woman had sought medical attention just six months after her marriage. In the course of the operation, the doctor mistakenly cut three of her intestines and stitched them up again. He however did not inform the woman of the mistake and the measure that was taken to remedy it. The woman was just let to go home without a word.

Later, the woman fell gravely ill and was taken to the hospital for medical attention. Initially, she was mistakenly diagnosed with coronavirus. It turned out the diagnosis was wrong after several tests.

As her situation got worse, her father informed the medical personnel that she had undergone a medical procedure to remove the fibroid.

Doctors then operated upon her and realized that the stitching on her intestines had given way and her excreta were mixed up contaminating her blood. The contaminated blood had already reached her brain and nothing could be done to save her life.

The medical doctor and the facility in which the operation was done is yet to be made public but a social media storm has greeted the news since a user made it public with the following comments:
