The court ruled in his favour but the outspoken MP has appealed the case with a ruling pending over the matter.

Speaking on ‘The Seat Show’ on Net2 TV on Monday evening, July 19, 2021, the NPP MP said he will not make any payment to Baako as he remains convinced he has a strong defense.

“Kweku Baako, what help have you provided people in this country. You wish they charge me with treason so you are accusing the prosecutor of doing a poor job. Come and charge me with treason yourself. What happened when you took me to court? I said I won’t pay a dime so I have taken the case back to court. He knows we have a court case but he is always talking about me,” he said.

Kennedy Agyapong also warned the leadership of NPP to be weary of their engagement with Kweku Baako Jnr.

When they heard that the event was taking place without them, they besieged the forecourt of the Assin South District Assembly with bottles of schnapps, eggs, and slaughtered a ram and rained curses on the officials.

Akufo-Addo Will Soon Resign For Bawumia To Take Over But He Can Never Be President Beyond 2024 – Nigel Gaisie Prophecies

Akufo-Addo Will Soon Resign For Bawumia To Take Over But He Can Never Be President Beyond 2024 – Nigel Gaisie Prophecies

The General Overseer of Prophet Hill Chapel, Prophet Nigel Gaisie has prophesied that President Akufo-Addo will resign as President of Ghana and will be succeeded by his Vice, Mahamudu Bawumia but he will not maintain the seat of power beyond 2024.

Prophet Nigel Gaisie claimed he has seen the leadership of the country for the next 25 years and Dr. Bawumia is definitely not going to be part of it.

In a radio interview on Angel FM, Nigel Gaisie claims President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo is being advised to step down at some point in his second term to allow Bawumia to finish the term as President.

He however insisted that Bawumia can never contest the election and win as President in the country.

“A president in West Africa will resign before his time. It’s an Anglophone country. There is a greater agenda to make way for his successor. I don’t see Bawumia becoming president in the next 20 or 25 years. I saw him wearing President’s Akufo-Addo’s shoe so the likelihood is that President Akufo-Addo will resign for him to take over but it will not go beyond 2024. That one is established. I have seen our leadership for the next 25 years and Bawumia is not part.”

FACT CHECK: Did Prez Akufo-Addo Lie His Way To Gain Votes In The 2020 Elections?

Published

on

NPP Will Win 2024 Elections No Matter Who Is Presented To Lead The Party – Nana Akufo-Addo 

President Nana Akufo Addo has said on a Cape Coast-based radio station, Eagle FM, that he never promised to build a harbour in the Central Regional capital while campaigning in the run-up to the 2020 elections.

The facts, however, show the President’s claims are untrue.

President Akufo-Addo was speaking with Babara Obeng Dwamena Mensah on the ‘Kokroko’ Morning Show on Monday morning at the start of a two-day tour of the region.

When asked about the status of a promise to build an airport and a harbour in Cape Coast, the President said, “The commitment was never to (build) a harbour. It was to a landing site. It is very, very important. And you look into page 88 of the NPP manifesto for the 2020 election. It’s very clear”.

He then went on to list landing site projects that government had initiated in the Central region, going further to say that it was similar landing sites that the party promised to build in Cape Coast and not a harbour.

“As far as the harbour (is concerned), we have to be clear in our mind, we never committed ourselves… I never said I was going to build a harbour in Cape Coast. I said I was going to build a landing site, and that would start next year,” he said.

The facts do not support the statements made by the President. Page 160 of the 2020 manifesto of the New Patriotic Party indicates that the party- if it were to win the 2020 elections- was going to build a harbour in Cape Coast.

With regard to promises made in relation to Roads, Railways, Ports and Harbours, the NPP stated in the the document that: “Over the next four years, we will commence construction of…a new harbour in Cape Coast and a new airport in Cape Coast”.

The manifesto was launched on Saturday, August 22, 2020, at the University of Cape Coast, where the President made his comments.

The manifesto contains further promises in respect of railway lines.

“We would ensure the completion of the construction of the Western Line and Tema to Mpakadan rail lines. Commence construction of the Eastern Rail Line, the Aduadin to Obuasi Lines, the Ghana – Burkina Line, a new line between Sekondi and Shama Free Zone area,” it states.

The issue of a harbour and an airport in the Central Region has been topical in years past, especially because of the region’s tourism potential.

Commenting on the promise, the Vice President, Dr Mahmoudu Bawumia, who presented highlights of the 2020 manifesto of the NPP, said, “People of Cape Coast, I have good news for you. We are building a new harbour in Cape Coast and a new airport in Cape Coast.

“It is very critical that we do that. An airport makes a lot of sense in Cape Coast. It’s a real tourist hub, and between Greater Accra, Kumasi and Cape Coast, you have a triangle that really is a hub for a lot of economic activity…and it’s a major growth pole”.
