Questions, More Questions; But Who Is In Charge Of The Ongoing Lawlessness In Ghana?

Published

on

Following the infamous demolition of structures belonging to the Nigerian High Commission on June 20, 2020 in Osu – Ghana, conflicting and confusing reports have emerged and also many questions.

First, the Osu Chiefs claim the property was demolished because it is a private one, not for the Nigerian High Commission.

Meanwhile, the Nigerian High Commission says it is their property.

The Government of Ghana has said it “regrets” the incident. The government, in a statement released by the Foreign Affairs Minister, said what happened “is a breach of the Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations (VCDR 1961).”

This means the Government of Ghana agrees with the position of the Nigerian High Commission that it is their property.

So who do we believe? The Osu Chiefs or the Government of Ghana?

Also the Osu chiefs in their statement did not say they went to demolish the property with any court order? In listing the “verbal” engagements they had with owners of the property, they did not mention that they went to court.

Granted that the land is theirs, could they just go and demolish it? Is this legal or lawful? And why would the Osu chiefs have feared any consequences when such illegal demolitions are a norm in Ghana?

Are demolitions of this nature isolated cases or a norm in Ghana? When impunity is institutionalised, why will anyone fear consequences?

Eye witnesses say the demolition team went there with armed men. They say when the police came, they went to have a friendly chat with the leader of the team and had a friendly chat with him and exchanged telephone numbers and they left.

Nigerian High Commission in Ghana attacked, apartments demolished ...

Who are these armed me? Are they from the state or private security or just an armed band of individuals?

And whose responsibility is it to stop the lawlessness and hooliganism, which is fast becoming a norm in Ghana today?

Even if they were private persons wielding weapons in the capital city, whose responsibility is it to stop it?

And if privately armed people could attack a diplomatic property and do this and get away with it, could they not do it to a state property or agency?

When serial killers targeted and killed women in this country some years back, who was blamed for it?

It became a major campaign issue of a certain political party. Do you remember that political party?

Why should the president take credit for all the positive things that happen in this country, in the government, public and private sector but should be left out when the negative things happen under his watch.

These people planned, went there and spent some considerable time to undertake the demolition and left without any arrest. Shouldn’t we be worried?

Why then did the government apologise if it didn’t owe the High Commission of Nigeria a duty of care?

Who should we credit when there is peace, orderliness and the rule of law in Ghana or within a particular administration? Who should we hold responsible for the increasing acts of hooliganism or lawlessness threatening the security of Ghana?

Akuffo Addo Is The Most Corrupt President In The History Of Ghana – A Plus Alleges

Mr. Kwame Asare Obeng popularly known in entertainment and social media as A Plus has descended heavily on the first gentleman of the land, president NANA ADDO DANKWA AKUFFO ADDO with no fear or favour.

He alleges the incumbent government govern has performed way below expectation with respect to campaign promises that led to a landslide victory over main opposition party, National Democratic Congress(NDC) in 2016.

A Plus angrily admonished Ghanaian politicians to be very careful, because the country folks are very angry and look very scary moving forward.

Kwame, however, focussed his post on his gross disappointment in president NANA ADDO DANKWA AKUFFO ADDO  where he expressed his regret for leading the campaign in 2016 for Akffuo Addo to assume power in 2017.

See excerpts of his post below;

I wished politicians speedy recovery in my previous post and almost everyone commenting is angry that I did. Ghanaian politicians must be careful. The people are very angry. It doesn’t look good. One day the people will rise up against you. It is getting scary by the minute.

But you see, I blame Nana Addo. He is the cause of the mistrust in Ghana’s political landscape today. He was our last hope. Ghanaians trusted him and gave him their full support but he is worse than his predecessors. He has failed so much that just after 4 years of winning with about a million votes he has to bring his own electoral commissioner and change the voter’s register and send military who could not protect our environment in the galamsey fight to the Volta Region before he can win again. He is the reason why people have developed so much hatred for politicians. If you can’t trust Nana who can you trust?

Now he has turned into an evening news presenter. Everyday, “Fellow Ghanaians, good evening, welcome to the evening news. My name is Nana, I’m here with my co-presenter, my beautiful Rebecca. Now the news at 9.” – GBC corona correspondent.

As for Ghana all it takes is to speak good English and the people will be like awwwww!!! Even Junior Agogo was once our best striker. Tweaaaa!!!

In 2016 Nana Addo was very happy when I asked how the National Organizer of the NDC, former teacher Kofi Adams got his wealth from. But he Nana was at Eugene Arhin’s baby naming ceremony. He Nana is aware what his people are grabbing and amassing. This is 2018, let me also ask you Nana, where do your boys get all the money from?Nana Addo is a very dishonest man. I’ve said it!!! Enough of his people his people. It’s him!!!”

5 Reasons Why Ghanaians Must Vote Against Nana Akufo Addo In The 2020 Election

5 Reasons Why Ghanaians Must Vote Against Nana Akufo Addo In The 2020 Election

Former President, John Dramani Mahama is staging a comeback as the flagbearer of the biggest opposition party, the National Democratic Congress.

The fine gentleman was historically kicked out of power in his first term as the president of Ghana when the then opposition leader, Nana Akufo Addo won in a landslide victory in the 2016 election.

Barring any unforeseen circumstances as Covid-19 still lurks in the shadows, Ghana will head to the polls in December this year. It’s obvious the Nana Akufo led government has failed Ghanaians in translating all the promises they made before they assumed power.

Despite the good manner the President has managed the Covid-19 situation in Ghana and scoring high marks on the political scoresheet, Nana Akufo still remains unpopular and we think that gives his closest rival, John Dramani Mahama the edge.

Invariably, NanaAkufo Addo’s failings has reinforced why John Dramani Mahama should be the next option in the next election.

1. Hardship

The hardship under Nana Akufo Addo has been very unbearable. The cost of living keeps soaring while the cedi continue to lose its value against the major foreign currencies. There’s no money in the system and people are struggling to eat three times daily.

2. Corruption

The embezzlement of public funds by civil servants and government officials in Ghana seems to have reached an all-time high and the canker has pervaded the fabric of public sector institutions, posing grave repercussions for the socio-economic growth of the country. The current administration has not found any financial malfeasance after conducting investigations into the various projects initiated by the past government.

3. Intimidation under NPP

There’s no doubt about this- under the current administration, people are freely insulted and intimidated if they speak against Nana Akufo Addo and his government. There have also been high profile killings that have not been solved.

The gruesome murder of investigative journalist Hussein Ahmed-Suale, the harassment and intimidation of journalists like former Joy FM employee Manesseh Azuri, Star FM’s Edward Adeti, Radio XYZ’s Kwame Minka etc., as well as the Gestapo shutdown of Radio Gold, Radio XYZ and other media organisations is an intimidating and silencing political.opposition.

4. Elephant Sized Government

Nana Akufo Addo’s ministerial cabinet is unprecedented in the political history of Ghana. There’s a total of 110 ministerial appointments. As you can imagine, this will invariably promote corruption.

5. Cedi not performing well

Dr Mahamudu Bawumia touts himself as an economic guru who haunted John Dramani Mahama and the late Kwesi Ammissah Arthur with his so-called ‘170 questions’ about the economy after a lecture on the state of the economy. However, since the assumption of office, the cedi has been depreciating at an alarming rate yet Bawumia seems to be clueless about how to salvage the situation.
