Not even my wife will convince me not to prosecute corrupt officials – Akufo-Addo

Written by | May 26, 2017 | 0
President Nana Akufo-Addo has said he will not be talked out of prosecuting corrupt public officers despite attempts by some officials to use his wife to plead on their behalf. Once you are found guilty, you will be prosecuted, he said to a rapturous applause by the Ghanaian community in Sierra Leone. “When people get caught up in the net, I am imploring people not to come to me and say that ‘Oh! Nana, this man is my relative, so spare him’. That is the problem in Ghana. “You find people going to speak to your wife with the hope of trying to influence you,” he stated, adding, “I am not going to listen to that because my concern is Ghana and not one or two individuals.” He, therefore, urged Ghanaians to help him in the fight against corruption, “so that we can put

Prohibit women under 30 from going to Middle East- Lawyer proposes

Written by | May 21, 2017 | 0
A private legal practitioner, John Kwame Quayeson is urging the government to consider placing an embargo on women under age 30, from seeking greener pastures in countries in the Middle East. Lawyer Quayeson believes such prohibition can partly provide a solution to the abuse of Ghanaian women reported to be victims of abuse in that part of the world. The International Organisation for Migration (IOM) in 2016 raised concerns about increasing reports of Ghanaian female migrants being abused in the Middle East. The Middle East is a geographical and cultural region located primarily in western Asia, but also in parts of northern Africa and southeastern Europe. The organisation said 2,000 women departed from Ghana to work in the Middle East between September 2014 and January 2015 alone, but over

The National Democratic Congress (NDC) and its Minority in Parliament are being “politically hypocritical” with the Delta Force 8 saga, Political Science lecturer Prof Ransford Gyampo has said. According to him, the NDC and its Minority in Parliament have “no moral right” to talk about the Delta 8 saga because members of the party, including MPs, signed a petition that made President John Mahama, in 2016, grant remission of sentence to three sympathisers of the party – Montie 3 – who threatened to kill and rape justices of the Supreme Court. Alistair Nelson, Godwin Ako Gunn and Salifu Maase, alias Mugabe, were sentenced to four months in prison for contempt after they issued the threats during a live radio discussion. They were found guilty of scandalising the Supreme Court, defying
