Sammy Gyamfi And Napo Clash Over Keta Tidal Waves

National Communications Officer of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Sammy Gyamfi, has lashed out at Energy Minister, Dr Matthew Opoku -Prempeh over his comments on provisions for victims of the Keta tidal waves.

Speaking on Asempa FM’s Ekosii Sen, he said, “I am against the Minority holding the government ransom that if the Volta issue is not included, they will not support or approve the budget.”

According to him, he is not against the government making provisions to help the people at Keta, however, if the Minority continues to push for inclusion and the flooding issue in Kumasi is also not addressed, then he will lead a demonstration in Kumasi.

But to Mr Gyamfi, the comments of the Minister, popularly known as Napo, is insensitive and he cannot fathom why someone who is been paid with the taxpayers’ money will make such pronouncements.

“When a disaster occurs, this ceases to be NPP or NDC. For a Minister to utter those words, he needs to redraw his statement and apologise to Ghanaians.

“Assuming without admitting, in a case of flooding in Kumasi as a responsible Minister, what you say is that when we are helping people in Keta then we do likewise to people in Kumasi since they are all Ghanaians,” he proposed.

The Minister for Works and Housing, Francis Asenso-Boakye, following the disaster disclosed that the Finance Ministry will allocate funds for the construction of the second phase of the Keta sea defence wall.

According to him, the completion of works under the second phase of the project is expected to cover a minimum coastal stretch of 8km.

However, the Minority in Parliament criticised the 2022 budget statement since the fund allocation was not captured.

Kwame A Plus Blames President Akufo-Addo's 'Under Performance' Partly On His Age

Controversial Political activist and businessman, Kwame Asare Obeng popularly called Kwame A-Plus has rated the performance of the president as poor claiming his age has affected his ability to govern the country effectively, giving him 20%.

Berla Mundi shared a tweet of what A-Plus supposedly said on TV3’s NewDay about the president’s performance in the last 5yrs saying his age has affected his ability to govern the country effectively.

According to the post, Kwame A-Plus gave the president’s performance  20% and he thinks he’s overwhelmed, and his age has affected his ability to govern the country effectively which has turned him into a pastor now as he’s more lenient than he used to be.

E-levy Saga: If You Send MoMo More Than GHS 100, You're Not Poor - Ursula Owusu

Ursula Owusu-Ekuful, Minister of Communications and Digitization, believes Ghana cannot keep begging or borrowing to finance its growth.

As a result, she claims the only way to increase income is to collect the 1.75 percent E-tax on financial transactions.

She said the E-levy would offer Ghana the much-needed resources to carry out its various developmental initiatives during a government town hall gathering in Koforidua, Eastern Region.

The cash must be created domestically or we must borrow, and we cannot continue to borrow to support our progress.

“To achieve Ghana beyond assistance, we must all support the e-levy and contribute to national development,” she stated.

Ursula Owusu-Ekuful cautioned that continuing to borrow from donors might rob Ghana of its independence and autonomy.

“Donors will control our growth speed as long as we are reliant on them,” she envisaged.
