Our manifesto: This is what YEN.com.gh believes
The general secretary of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP), John Boadu, has fingered the leadership of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) in the recent market fires.
Some major markets across the country have in recent times been razed down by fires.
According to the NPP’s chief scribe, the frequency and coincidence with which the markets are burning on the back of threats by some element of the NDC to burn markets protest against the outcome of the 2020 polls left no enduring doubt that “they are behind these arson attacks”.
Meanwhile, information reaching YEN.com.gh indicates that the personal driver of the deputy general secretary of the NDC, Peter Boamah Otokunor, was picked up by the National Intelligence Bureau.
He was reportedly arrested in connection with the recent market fires recorded across the country.
YEN.com.gh cannot clearly state what exactly prompted the action from the officials to pick up the driver of the deputy NDC scribe.
Over the last few weeks, there have been reported cases of major markets in Ghana being set ablaze. The Koforidua, Kantamanto, Odawna, Asankragwa and, lately, Kaneshie, have been torched in one way or the other.
In other news, YEN.com.gh reported about the heartrending story of Fuseini Yusuf. The 51-year-old visually impaired is the father of five children between the ages 5 and 13.
The children are suffering from speech and mental disorders, according to a Starr News report.
The resident of Akyem New Tafo in the Abuakwa North Municipality of the Eastern Region like a lot of visually impaired Ghanaians begs for survival.
Before he steps out every morning, Fuseini chains the children to keep them away from trouble and have the peace of mind to concentrate on his trade as a beggar.
Fuseini’s wife reportedly left him in 2014 when she realised the disturbing conditions of her children, leaving the visually impaired father with the herculean responsibility of single parenthood.
