The Founder of Groupe Nduom, Dr. Papa Kwesi Nduom, says he has “had enough of the deliberate and malicious campaigns that have been waged against his person, his family and businesses the past four years.”
In what he says is a first firm step to deal with the “viciously orchestrated lies” that continue to impugn on his integrity, Dr. Nduom is seeking a GHC10 Million claim in damages, in a law suit against Hopeson Adorye, a member of the communication team of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) in an Accra High Court.
Two others, one Kwadwo Amankwah Foxzy, also a communication team member of the NPP and Kencity Media, operators of Ash FM in Kumasi, are included in the suit.
Controversial $28 million car loan
A former Minister of Education and Member of Parliament for North Tongu, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa, has condemned colleagues in Parliament over the $28 million dollar car loan facility.
Taking to his Twitter Page, the MP, argued that such arrangements, which has generated a heated debate, leaves Parliament as an “apartheid structure” where there is no transparency and accountability. He holds the view that the acquisition of car loans must be the sole responsibility of MPs and not government.
“MPs, who need car loans should be allowed to make their own private car loan arrangements with the banks just as most private sector workers do,” he argues.
The $28 million car loan, when distributed, will grant each MP, $100,000 for the purchase of a brand new V8 Land Cruiser. Even as some MPs have rejected the loan offer, others say it is very important to them as they pick Uber to Parliament for all proceedings.
Salaries for 1st, 2nd ladies: Divorce your wives if you can't cater for them - Nana Addo, Bawumia told
Salaries for 1st and 2nd ladies
The Member of Parliament for Sekyere Afram Plains, Mahmud Kabore says it is better for President Akufo-Addo and Vice President, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia to divorce their wives if they feel incapacitated to cater for their welfare.
The MP, responding to the debate on salaries for the first and second ladies, argued that the call by the Emoluments Committee to pay salaries to Rebecca Akufo-Addo and Samira Bawumia are “baseless and a misplaced priority”.
“Ghanaians are suffering under this presidency. They have mismanaged the economy. If President Akufo-Addo and Dr. Bawumia think they can’t take care of their wives die to the current economic hardship, they should divorce their wives and stop putting the burden on Ghanaians. The monies used to pay salaries can be used to build more factories,” he argued on Kumasi-based Otec FM.
