“Forgive Me For All The Lies I Said Against You” – Captain Smart Begs John Mahama

"Forgive Me For All The Lies I Said Against You" - Captain Smart Begs John Mahama

Host of Onua TV’s ‘Maakye’ show, Captain Smart has asked for forgiveness from former President John Mahama.

He said the 2020 National Democratic Congress (NDC) flagbearer should forgive him for all the previous corruption allegations he leveled against him while in office.

Captain Smart said most of the things that were leveled against John Mahama at that time were all lies.

He said he has clarified that reports suggesting years ago that former President John Dramani Mahama was so corrupt that he had houses in the United Arab Emirates were palpable falsehood.

According to him, he personally traveled to Dubai in search of the said houses, adding that he did not find even a single room in the name of Mahama let alone a house.

He continued that contrary to reports that Mahama had stashed monies away, his checks also proved negative.

“It was in this country we were told that Mahama had purchased houses in Dubai. Is it not so? Mahama I want to apologize to you for doing that story.”

“Mahama does not have a single room in Dubai, not a single room. Anyone who knows a single room belonging to Mahama in Dubai should provide the house number, I will resign tomorrow. But we heaped those accusations on Mahama,” the Onua TV host stated.

He reiterated that he was making speaking today in the interest of standing for the truth and exonerating the former president despite not being a member of the opposition National Democratic Congress, NDC.

“I am not of the NDC stock and I will never vote for the NDC, I will not vote for Mahama but I stand for the truth. I will tell you the plain truth. We keep insisting that Mahama has bank accounts and has stashed away monies. Mahama has no account with even one dollar in it,” he added.

He said the accusations against Mahama were so coordinated and ceaseless that many people believed it to be true.

Nana Addo Bans Ministers From Traveling Abroad

President Nana Akufo-Addo has placed a one-month international travel ban on his ministers and deputy ministers.⁠

According to a new report by AsaaseNews, travelling is only allowed for medical emergencies. The directive by the President will be the second of its kind since he assumed office as President of the Republic in January 2017.⁠

On 21 June 2018, the president, in a letter signed by his Chief of Staff, Akosua Frema Osei Opare, directed that all foreign travel by ministers, deputy ministers, metropolitan/municipal/district chief executives and heads of government agencies be suspended temporarily with immediate effect.⁠

“Guidelines in respect of future foreign travels aimed at minimising disruption to the government’s domestic work will be communicated to you shortly,” the 2018 directive said.⁠

The reason for this latest travel ban is not readily known.

E-levy Proceeds Will Create Jobs For Over 11 Million People - Ofori-Atta

The Minister of Finance, Ken Ofori-Atta, has said proceeds from the 1.75% E-Levy, proposed in the 2022 budget, would ensure that over 11 million people are employed.

He noted that 58 percent of the country’s population are between 15 and 59 years, which is about 18million people.

“Of this number, 2.4million are in formal employment whilst the remaining 15 million are split between informal and underemployment”, stressing that 11 million people are with no clear path when it comes to employment opportunities.

It was held on the theme: “Building a Sustainable Entrepreneurial Nation; Opportunities for Ghana’s Youth”.

Ken Ofori-Atta contended that “for us as a government, our task is to ensure we extend opportunities to the youth. The consequences of having eleven million people with no clear path, undoubtedly, our recovery efforts hinges on tailored support to provide skills and funding to our young people to pursue their ambition to free them”, indicating that nothing is impossible.

“How do we as a nation move into an entrepreneurial stage to have an opportunity to contribute to national development? How do we reduce our debt and create employment?

How do we take care of our infrastructure and roads so that we open up the country and build good Internet systems to create opportunities for all? Why are we being resistant to the future? We have nothing to fear. Have we as a nation understood the times that we are in and are we ready to sacrifice to move to a whole different level”?

Ken Ofori-Atta emphasized that “When somebody tells you we shouldn’t go there, tell them, give me an alternative for this 11 million people who are at home and not working”.

I Fear For My Life When I Sit In Chamber Sometimes - Afenyo-Markin

Deputy Majority Leader in Parliament, Alexander Kwamina Afenyo-Markin has admitted to living in fear of his life during and after some proceedings in the House.

According to him, some sessions which involve heated debate has sometimes culminated in threats of physical harm and abuse.

Speaking on the News File segment on Joy News, Afenyo-Markin alleged that the recent impasse over the 2022 budget statement has revealed a plot by the minority to physically abuse, Joseph Osei-Owusu who presided over a ruling as the First Deputy Speaker of Parliament.

“Sometimes I sit in the chamber and I fear for my own life. I fear for my life because one moment we are debating then you threaten someone that I will beat you.

You should call them out. Sam George is apologizing on behalf of the minority and majority, we don’t need you to apologise for us. With all due respect, apologize for your caucus. NPP has been gentle,” he said.
