The month of July is here and it comes with so much political and social events. This month comes along in the wake of various pressing events that happened in the month of June.
In fact, investigative journalist, Anas Aremeyaw Anas described the month of June as a 'dark one' following his explosive video about the corrupt developments in the Ghana Football Association.
Aside from the Number 12 video which erupted anger and shock in the country, there are some developments which we could see play out in the month of July 2018.
1. Prosecution of corrupt GFA officials.
The case regarding the Anas video is not yet dead. In fact, the attorney general, Gloria Akufo, is expected to go after the faces seen taking bribes in the Number 12 video this month of July.
Even though a new board of the GFA has been constituted and the green light given by football regulatory body, FIFA, the quest for the prosecution of these corrupt officials is not yet over.
2. Burial of Kwesi Amissah Arthur
Ghanaians were left with shock on Friday, June 30, when the former vice president of Ghana, Paa Kwesi Amissah Arthur, was declared dead. Amissah Arthur died after collapsing during a gym class at the Airforce Gym in Accra.
So far, tributes keep coming in for the late former vice president who has been described by the vice president, Dr. Bawumia, as a fine gentleman. The funeral arrangements are yet to be made known but it is highly expected that a state burial for the late Amissah-Arthur will be held before the month's end.
3. Blood moon on July 27
In the month of July, the world will be witnessing the second total lunar eclipse (Blood moon) of 2018 and this will be clearly visible in large parts of Australia, Asia, Africa, Europe, and South America.
The entire event will last for 103 minutes across the world. A graphical map by timeanddate.com show that Ghana will be part of the countries across the world that will witness the full lunar eclipse.
4. Swearing in of new EC boss and commissioners
President of the republic, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, has sacked the Electoral Commissioner, Charlotte Osei, together with her two deputies. The reasons for the dismissal are based on her "incompetence and misbehaviour".
Ghana's political scene shook to its core when this news broke. As it stands now, the president bears the burden of filling up the vacancy by nominating and swearing in a new EC boss and two commissioners.
5. Cabinet Reshuffle
The presidency has recently been screening all ministers and heads of government institutions for their progress since being sworn-in.
Following the recent dismissal of CEOs of some government institutions, the stakes are very high for the president to effect a cabinet reshuffle. It is expected that Nana Addo could also reduce the number of cabinet ministers from 110 to at least 80.
6. Anas VS Kennedy Agyapong showdown at court
We have seen the investigative journalist, Anas Aremeyaw Anas, threaten to sue maverick politician, Kennedy Agyapong for some pronouncements made against him and his team over the Number 12 video which got the president to dissolve the Association and even called for the arrest of Nyantakyi.
We are expecting both Anas and Kennedy Agyapong face it out in court. In all these developments, you may want to stick with YEN.com.gh as we break every story to you with all the information that you may need very much.
