‘Mr Martin Amidu Was Incompetent’- Kwasi Pratt

Published

on

Ace Ghanaian journalist and the Managing Editor at the Insight Newspaper, Kwasi Pratt has questioned the government counter letter to disclaim some of the allegations raised by the former Special Prosecutor, Martin Amidu.

The Special Prosecutor, Martin Amidu shocked Ghanaians when he announced his resignation on Monday.

Mr Amidu noted in his resignation letter that his appointment letter was given to him two years after he was appointed.

Again, he also said he was never paid for three years of service to the country.

And the reason which shocked Ghanaians most was the president interference on his duties as stated by him in the letter.

Since then many opinion leaders, government officials and other opposition political leaders have expressed their thoughts.

The former member of the Alliance for Change group, was speaking at a panel discussion on Good Morning Ghana on Metro TV when he made this assertion.

According to him, he is not surprised Mr Amidu has resigned unlike many Ghanaians who are still in shock over his resignation.

However, to him what he finds it a bit dicey is the two different letters from the speaker of Parliament and the office of the government concerning Amidu’s resignation.

According to the first letter from the office of the Speaker of Parliament, it showed that President Akufo-Addo highly recommended and appreciated his 3 years of service to the Nations as the Special Prosecutor.

However, another counter letter was released from the office of the president signed by his secretary.

In this letter, government however, disclaimed all the allegations Mr Amidu raised in his resignation letter.

Mr Pratt after reading both letters during his submission then stated that, if what the government is saying is true then, “Mr Martin Amidu was incompetent.”

Mr Pratt then questioned why the government would come out with a different letter to counter the allegations of the former Special Prosecutor after commending and appreciating him in the letter.

What governments all over the world are doing after COVID

Published

What governments all over the world are doing after COVID in 2022.

One of the most important ways that societies intervene to buffer the adverse consequences of socioeconomic disadvantage is through the provision of social assistance. Social assistance refers to government programs that provide a minimum level of income support to individuals and households living in poverty.

When people talk about people receiving public assistance – food stamps, disability, unemployment payments, and other government help – they often have stereotypes and inaccurate perceptions of who those people are and what their lives are like.

This view of some people is affecting policy for the growing ranks of our nation’s poor, says a new report from a joint project from Save the Children and the Center for American Progress. The report compares the U.S. means of measuring economic opportunity and poverty with the experience of other countries, including five peer nations on the same income scale. It shows that people in many peer countries are given assistance as a matter of public policy, and these nations tend to view welfare programs as a short-term emergency measure.

Many countries like the U.S and spend significantly more taxpayer money on assistance than peer countries. After a few years of assistance, people on welfare in the U.S. have a much more difficult time finding jobs, according to the recent National Survey of Transitional Assistance Providers. These programs lend support either in the form of direct cash transfers or through a variety of in-kind benefits (e.g. food stamps and rent subsidies). Social assistance has been shown to strengthen the purchasing power of the poor and raise their material standards of living.

However, the government does not provide these social assistance programs to ensure marginalized populations are treated fairly, the report says. In fact, U.S. policy determines participation by significant factors, such as the stigma associated with poverty.

Many social programs determine eligibility before a person’s need for support. They include the U.S. Earned Income Tax Credit, which provides an additional tax refund to working families. Similarly, these benefits are made available only to the poor, as with food stamps and Medicaid eligibility. The report finds positive signs.

Throughout the world, government assistance helps increase your odds of getting a job, incorporates receiving benefits (by lowering the barriers to receive), raises your wages, and reduces the chances of falling into poverty. This means people who receive the assistance are less likely to experience long-term poverty.

Some nations take a deliberate approach to the provision of social assistance because they view the social support system as integral to promoting social and economic mobility. In many cases, straight into the workforce programs and an expansion.

Access to jobs is crucial to moving families out of poverty. Unemployment and disability, for example, only benefit people when they work. A policy reform could make the social safety net more effective.
