Ghanaians won’t fall for your promises anymore – Sekou Nkrumah teases John Mahama

Sekou Nkrumah teases John Mahama: Sekou Nkrumah, son of Ghana’s first President, Dr. Kwame Nkrumah, has advised former President Mahama to admit he failed Ghanaians in his first term in office if he is to have any chance of getting the public to follow his recent attempts to woo them with his policies in a bid to regain power in 2020, ABC News can report.

Sekou Nkrumah suggests the underwhelming performance of John Dramani during his first term in office, which was characterised by gross mismanagement of the economy and resources and gave Ghanaians very little to be joyous about, is enough basis for Ghanaians to reject his message for a second term.

The Convention People’s Party member noted that National Democratic Congress squandered a glorious opportunity to govern the people of Ghana after winning power in 2008, particularly, during the Mahama era when he presided over an incompetent and corrupt government.

“Any promise by Mahama will fall on deaf ears! He should rather be pleading for forgiveness from Ghanaians, and in the process accept that he led an incompetent, corrupt government,” Sekou Nkrumah is reported to have said.

The National Democratic Congress overwhelmingly voted John Mahama flagbearer to lead them to the next polls after a reelection bid in 2016 ended with disastrous outcome.

Many within the party and some political analysts advised the party to restructure and present a new face to lead them to improve their image and acceptability but the party decided to stick with the former President, who has only a four-year mandate to fulfill his policies should he be given a second term.

This, according to Sekou Nkrumah, is an opportunity missed by the opposition NDC to reorganise themselves and correct their shortcomings.

He averred that the mere fact the NDC decided to re-present Mahama is an indication that they haven’t learnt any lessons from the last election defeat.

“I find it very difficult to appreciate the efforts of the Mahama campaign! My problem with the NDC is that they had the opportunity to do good for Ghana when they had the people’s mandate in 2008, yet NDC blew away that privilege.

“Instead of the party going through an internal clean house and restructuring, they rather opted for a lazy, corrupt approach were they basically made no changes going forward,” he added.

He was convinced that just as Ghanaians kept their fate in the NPP to redeem the economy and country from the levels of corruption and ineptitude witnessed under Mahama, there is little doubt about the verdict of 2020.

Seko Nkrumah divulged, “If Ghanaians gave them 4 more years after a messy first term, what makes them think the same Ghanaians will not also tolerate another 4 years of NPP?”

On Monday, Former President Mahama held a Facebook Live session to interact with the public on issues of national concern and state some of his policies he intends to implement should he come back to power in 2021.

I believe in the promises of an ejaculating man than Akufo-Addo – Manasseh Azure

I believe in the promises of an ejaculating man than Akufo-Addo: Freelance Journalist, Manasseh Azure Awuni has said that he will rather believe in promises made by a man during his ejaculation than believe in Akufo-Addo.

According to him, he invested his trust in the Akufo-Addo brand during the 2016 electioneering campaign because he believed that the NPP was a better alternative to transform the fortunes of Ghana for the better.

However, he now has a diverse opinion about the Akufo-Addo led administration ever since they took over the governance of the country.

The Journalist who made this known in a post on his Facebook page said the straw that broke the camel’s back and erased the little trust he had in the Akufo-Addo administration is the treated meted out to Dumelevo.

He said “Whenever Akufo-Addo was speaking in 2016, come and see me — gidigidi, quoting and posting his words with trust and hope. Now, I trust the promises a man makes to his wife when “his body is coming” more than the president’s words. His action against Daniel Yaw Domelevo eroded the vestige of trust I still had in him. Unfortunately, I don’t trust his main opponent’s promises too. But I’ll vote on December 7 if I have life”.

The New Patriotic Party today August 22, 2020 at an event held in the Central Region launched its manifesto which to the party intends to consolidate the gains made so far since they took over power from the NDC.

The Manifesto according to the political party is its social contract with the people of Ghana and they will follow suit to ensure that Ghana is Transformed.

Whenever Akufo-Addo was speaking in 2016, come and see me — gidigidi, quoting and posting his words with trust and hope….

Keep your receipts because I’ll audit COVID-19 Funds – Mahama to Akufo-Addo

Keep your receipts because I’ll audit COVID-19 Funds – Mahama

Keep your receipts because I’ll audit COVID-19 Funds – Mahama to Akufo-Addo

Mr. John Dramani Mahama has indicated he will audit the COVID-19 fund that has been created to finance activities relating to the fight against the pandemic.

He cautioned all persons who use the funds to keep their receipts because “the day of accountability will come”.

The government of President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo created the COVID-19 Trust Fund to solicit funds from the general public to help fight the pandemic.

The Fund, according to President Akufo-Addo has accrued GH₵8,750,000.

“I’m very grateful to individuals and institutions who have responded to my appeal for donations to be made into the COVID-19 National Trust Fund. A total amount of some 8,750,000 cedis which includes 600,000USD has been received.

“I’m happy that so many appointees of my government have also followed my example by donating their salaries to the fund,” President Akufo-Addo said.

But in a Facebook Live presentation on Thursday April 23, Mr Mahama called on Ghanaians to demand accountability in the disbursement of the Funds.

“I don’t think I need to become President before we demand accountability. All those spending the COVID-19 money should be keeping the receipts because the day of accountability is fast approaching,” he said.

He added: “Let us all join hands in demanding accountability and transparency from the government in the management of the COVID-19 funds, after all these are public funds contributed by tax payers.

“I am passionately appealing to the government to ensure a timely release of these funds to the institutions, health and non-heath, so that they can discharge their duties appropriately and according to plan.”

Read FULL JUDGEMENT of the 2020 election petition

The Supreme Court, by a unanimous decision, has affirmed the victory of President Akufo-Addo in the 2020 presidential election.

“The petitioner has not produced any evidence to rebut the presumptions created by the publication of CI 135 for which his action has failed. We have, therefore, no reason to order for a rerun … we accordingly dismiss the petition as having no merit,” Chief Justice Anin-Yeboah ruled.

With this unanimous, seven-member decision, the Supreme Court dismissed the petition.

The court determined that the petitioner had based his case on an error made by the chair of the Electoral Commission during the declaration of the election result on 9 December 2020, but that the error could not void the will of the people in electing a president.

The Supreme Court also held that the error made by the EC in using total votes cast as the basis for reckoning the total valid votes during the declaration was corrected, and that the correction was made in accordance with the law.
