NPP gov’t destroyed Duffuor, Nduom, and Amoabeng’s businesses out of envy – Agyinasare

NPP gov’t destroyed Duffuor, Nduom, and Amoabeng’s businesses out of envy: The Presiding Bishop of Perez Chapel International, Bishop Charles Agyinasare, has appealed to Ghanaians to pray against the ‘demon’ that makes politicians collapse local businesses when they win power.

According to him, over the years, many reputable indigenous businessmen and entrepreneurs have been destroyed out of jealousy and envy by some politicians.

Preaching to his congregants Sunday, the renowned preacher said even though he does not support wrongdoing by businessmen, many of the companies that have been collapsed in recent times cannot be justified.

“In this country, we have always out of the spirit of envy, closed down industries and businesses of our own people. Growing up, there was a man called B.A Mensah, a builder, and founder of International Tobacco Ghana limited. I will never forget when I came to Accra first and this honorable man came to my house at Adenta and asked me ‘Bishop can you pray with me so that my property that has been taken so many years earlier will come to me’?

“JK Siaw established the first indigenous breweries in West Africa, which was taken. Years later, a very industrious man Eddie Annan also lost the Massai company, importers of cars, he was the representative of IBM and many other companies. Because he was perceived to be the financier of an opposition party.

“You see, those demons that possess our politicians when they get into political power is still at work today and we must exorcise them otherwise we are far from going forward. Our children’s’ children cannot even enjoy their inheritance and hard work,” he said.

He stressed: “Can we say that all the industries and firms we have closed under this regime were because all the people and companies were wrong? And we could not have done anything to have preserved these companies? I have been asking myself, so for Mr. Duffuor who used to be Finance minister and one time Governor of the Bank OF Ghana under whose turn as minister we had the best economic growth rate; 14% in a particular year, was there nothing we could do with his bank? What about Dr. Ndoum who introduced or expanded susu banking and had branches than any commercial bank in Ghana and more customers, then my own Amoabeng who helped me grow my first $100,000 through investment which I gave to the church as part of the contribution towards the building of the Dome. Could nothing have been done to save those Financial institutions? There are some financial institutions whose owners were rogues and careless and so yes, but these ones.

“The truth is that in Ghana, we are more tolerant of foreign companies than Ghanaian companies. We give them tax breaks for years because the investors coming to build the nation. Some of them come with nothing but our banks will give them loans. Our local firms can’t compete because we do everything to stifle them”.

Both Dr. Kwabena Duffuor and Dr. Papa Kwesi Ndoum lost their banks through a financial sector cleanup triggered by the Finance ministry following the victory of the New Patriotic Party in the 2016 polls. Both are in court fighting the decision.

Somalia rejects John Mahama; questions his impartiality and competence as a mediator

The Federal Republic of Somalia has rejected the appointment of Ghana’s former president John Dramani Mahama as African Union’s (AU) special envoy to help mediate that country’s political impasse.

In a letter trending on the various media platforms and seen by accramail.com and confirmed by sources at the AU, Mahamed Abdirazak, Somalia’s Minister of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation said Mahama has “extensive links” with Kenya, and that the country will no longer support him [Mahama] in his new role.

“It is indeed surprising that a candidate with extensive links with Kenya’s leadership has been chosen by the AU to facilitate talks on a political impasse partly engineered by those Kenyan leadership has supported,” the letter stated.

“Given the politically sensitive nature of the task of a high representative in any case, I am certain you will appreciate the importance of any candidate for such a post to be seen as impartial and competent without any links to the region,” it added.

“I hereby notify the African Union of the formal withdrawal of support by the Federal Government of Somalia for the AU High Representative for Somalia.”

Nana Addo cuts sod for the construction of $30 million Pan African Heritage World Museum

Construction of $30 million Pan African Heritage World Museum: President of the Republic of Ghana H.E. Nana Akufo-Addo has led a sod-cutting ceremony held in Accra for the construction of The Pan African Heritage World museum, which is said to be the biggest in Africa.

The Pan African Heritage World Museum, when completed, according to the President, will provide a resting place for all the looted artifacts housed in foreign museums in Europe and elsewhere.

“The museum is certainly an innovative pan-Africanism project and the government is accordingly supporting its development. The precise state of the support government will provide is the subject of ongoing discussions between the executive council and the Ministry of Tourism, Arts and Culture, and the results will be fully publicized.”

“I am glad that when completed, this project will provide education in the museum’s gallery for visitors to learn more about the history, cultures, indigenous ideals of our ancestors who demonstrated their resolve to protect our environment,” the President said.

Speaking at the sod-cutting ceremony, Akufo-Addo urged locals in the area not to be an impediment to the construction of the museum.

“I urge you, residents of the area and those within this immediate catchment area to be mindful of the fact that you will be the ultimate beneficiaries of this project, so please, do not put any impediments in the way of investors or contractors. There should be a cordial relationship among you,” he added.

The museum, which will be the biggest in Africa, was the idea of Kojo Yankah, past President of the Pan-African Historical Theatre Festival (PANAFEST) and founder of the African University College of Communications.

The design of the Museum is shaped as a Horn which is synonymous with a trumpet which is a musical instrument often used in religious ceremonies.

It is expected to be completed in July 2023.
