#AgyemanManuMustGoToJail Tops Twitter Trends In Ghana

The Emirati at the centre of the botched Sputnik V vaccine deal, Sheikh Ahmed Dalmook Al Maktoum, has announced plans to refund $2,470,000 to Ghana.

According to him, he has initiated the steps to transfer the money into the bank account to be provided by the Health Minister, Kwaku Agyemang-Manu.

The refund, according to the Sheikh, is in reference to a letter dated August 2, 2021, signed by Mr Agyemang-Manu and addressed to him.

Meanwhile, a nine-member ad-hoc committee of Parliament that probed the contract agreements had urged the Minister of Finance to recover US$2,850,000 cedi equivalent of GH¢16,331,640), which was paid.

Despite an initial agreement for the supply of 300,000 doses of the vaccine, only 20,000 were delivered before the businessman terminated the contract on July 14, 2021.

Hence, Sheikh Al Maktoum, in his letter of assurance, deducted the amount of $380,000 from the requested refund as payment for the initial 20,000 the Sputnik V Vaccine samples sent which brought the total refund to $2,470,000.

Mr Agyemang-Manu has come under serious criticism for entering into the vaccine supply agreement without parliamentary, cabinet approval or approval from the Public Procurement Authority.

There has been an intense call for his resignation or dismissal following revelations that the Attorney General advised against the deal.

Any Married Man Who Claims He Does Not Have Side Chick Is A Liar, I Have One And My Wife Knows It – Odike

Ghanaian businessman and politician Akwasi Addai Odike has disclosed that he proudly engages in extra-marital affairs which his wife is aware of and fine with.

According to the 57-year-old presidential aspirant, his wife knows her role and the side chick also understand her position thus they both respect each other and get along quite well.

Speaking to Nana Aba Anamoah on Starr FM, Odike said almost all married men have side chicks but they feel ashamed and guilty to reveal their identities.

He maintained that any married man who claims he does not have a side chick is a liar.

“I’m married with a girlfriend. My wife and girlfriend are both aware of this.”

“My father was polygamous, but I can’t sit here and tell Ghanaians I’m not. If any man is honest with himself and God. You do not have to swear to any woman that you are the only one. Never will I flatter anyone.”

“But if I discover that you are a suitable woman who can bring me joy, then sure. I expect my woman to understand me unconditionally and to love me unconditionally.”

Odike added that his primary source of happiness is women so he ensures that he treats women well, and have as many as he could afford to take care of.
