We approved incompetent Ken Ofori-Atta to help us win 2024 – Asiedu Nketia

We approved incompetent Ken Ofori-Atta to help us win 2024: General Secretary of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Johnson Asiedu Nketia, has revealed reasons why the Minority Caucus on the Appointments Committee approved Finance Minister-designate Ken Ofori-Atta.

And it is shocking to the core as it is vain.

According to him, there was a consensus at the NDC’s hierarchy that the Minority Caucus approves Ken Ofori-Atta as Finance Minister, because in their estimation, he has performed abysmally, and keeping him at the helm of affairs at the sensitive position will inure to the benefit of the opposition party in the 2024 General elections.

He was speaking in an interview with Kwame Nkrumah Tikesie on Okay FM’s Ade Akye Abia Morning Show.

The NDC Chief Scribe held that the Finance Minister is a lame-duck one, and Ghanaians will come to know of his lousy record and the bad deals he supervised as the Finance Minister.

“We have strategies as a political party and some of the NDC leaders sat down and considered the approval of the nominee as to whether passing or failing him, which one will be in the interest of the party. So, we all decided that if we allow him to be the finance minister, it will be in the interest of the NDC…

“We realised during the vetting of the finance minister, he was exposed in all his wrong deeds…The banks he collapsed, PDS deal and bad financial decisions he superintended over; we needed him to be there to remind Ghanaians what he has wrought on this country”, he added.

He reiterated that the approval of Ken Ofori-Atta is meant to “tell Nana Akufo-Addo that if it is this lame-back finance minister he wants to still be in control of the country’s finances, so be it, and that is why we told our people to approve him”.

Mr. Asiedu Nketia however explained that the NDC issued a pre-emptive statement to calm its members over the approval of the Finance Minister to avoid a misunderstanding and also to signal that the party is aware of the approval of the Finance Minister, regardless of his flaws in the first term in office as the Finance Minister.

“Due to the misunderstanding and hullabaloo that erupted in the party in the wake of the approval of the first batch of ministerial nominess, we decided to issue the statement to calm our support base and to further assure them that the hierarchy was in the know of the finance minister’s approval”, he maintained.

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.
