There Is No NPP or NDC Gov’t In Ghana – Kabila

 

The acting General Secretary of the Convention People’s Party (CPP), James Kwabena Bomfeh has called on the public to stop referring to the Akufo-Addo administration as an NPP government.

According to him, tagging the government with a political party name is unconstitutional.

He expounded that government is about the person who is elected to lead the State, in this case will be President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo not the New Patriotic Party.

He said this while announcing that the CPP is poised to contest the 2020 elections and revealed the party will unveil its Presidential and Parliamentary candidates on Saturday, August 15.

In a panel discussion on Peace FM, Kabila said,

“In fact, should President Nana Akufo-Addo decide today to exit the New Patriotic Party, he will continue to be President because as much as he was elected on the ticket of the New Patriotic Party, he is President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo. There’s no NPP government . . . There has never been an NDC government. In our constitutional arrangement, it’s not parties that form government but rather the person who has been elected.”

He also described Ghana’s constitution as a constitution of hypocrisy.

To him, there are inconsistencies in the contitution.

He believed the inconsistency is one of the reasons why people tend to call a government by a political party name.

Speaking to host Nana Yaw Kesseh, he called for an overhaul of the 1992 constitution saying”the whole structure of the constitution and the politics we’re doing under this fouth Republican dispensation, I want to conclude that the case for a constitutional overhaul is eminent and it’s imperative”.

What governments all over the world are doing after COVID

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.

In a statement, spokesperson Peter Afunanya said the Department of State Services (DSS) had uncovered a plot by suspected gangs to carry out attacks on critical infrastructure, places of worship and recreation centres.

The warning comes after recent explosions at bars in the north-eastern states of Taraba and Yobe that killed several people.

Russia Cuts Off Gas Supplies To Bulgaria And Poland

The Russian energy giant Gazprom says it has cut off all gas deliveries to both Bulgaria and Poland after both countries refused to start paying for the supplies in roubles.

Earlier, both Polish and Bulgarian energy providers said they had received official notices from the Russian gas supplier that deliveries were due to be cut.

Gazprom’s announcement comes after some confusion earlier this morning, when data showed gas supplies into Poland through Belarus temporarily reduced to zero before resuming.

We are yet to see any data of gas volumes into Poland or Bulgaria since Gazprom’s announcement just now.
