Mr Afenyo-Markin has, since 2014 when he won the seat, provided 287 taxi-cabs, more than 4,000 sewing machines and hairdryers for the youth to better their lot.

“Vocational training is one of the key pillars of my leadership in Effutu,” he said, and that it was his strong conviction that when young ladies and men, who had learnt a trade, were equipped, they could earn a living and would not be vulnerable in society.

The MP said the initiative was in fulfillment of President Nana Akufo-Addo’s promise to create jobs for the youth during his campaign in 2016.

He said helping people to develop their skills and talents through creating their own businesses could effect positive changes in their lives.

Published

The controversial artiste manager and showbiz pundit opined this during a talk show on 3 FM yesterday.

According to tom him, the President should have even resigned by now for failing to perform up to the task and the expectation he gave Ghanaians.

We all most politicians are liars but Akufo-Addo seemed or looked like he was going to be different. When he started his campaign and was talking and talking, you know, he is the worst president ever,” he said whilst speaking on 3FM.

During the interview hosted by MzGee, Bulldog added that the President must even resign by now with his Vice, Dr Bawumia, behind bars, for once donating expired products to people in the Nothern part of Ghana.

He and his hypeman Bawumia … that’s his hypeman which vice? What job does he do? This is a man who should be behind bars. They went to the North to go and share food that has expired to people,” he said.

Investing In MenzGold Is Better Than Trusting Akuffo Addo’s Government – Manasseh Awuni Azure

Published

on

Investigative journalist Manasseh Awuni Azure says he is not really impressed with the performance of President Akufo-Addo thus far.

In a Facebook post, he stated “In 2017, I was optimistic. Today, I look back and realize that trusting this government is worse than investing in Menzgold. Even they could not resist the temptation to continue the SADA(NDA) and GYEEDA(YEA) scandals they used as their campaign message in 2016. “

He went on to state;

“I wrote a long article praising President Akufo-Addo when he declared war on galamsey. In my view, it was genuine. I wrote a long article praising the president when he appointed Martin Amidu as Special Prosecutor,” he says.

“I praised the Attorney-General and the government for their fight against corruption when the A-G ordered the police CID to investigate into the Robbing the Assemblies story even before I finished the series. In 2017, I was optimistic. Today, I look back and realize that trusting this government is worse than investing in Menzgold. Even they could not resist the temptation to continue the SADA (NDA) and GYEEDA (YEA) scandals they used as their campaign message in 2016. I’m just beginning to realize that even the soap I got instead of the smartphone I paid for is fake. Yes, fake soap.”

It is obvious the award-winning journalist feels ‘scammed’ by the dispensation of the president after what he says is a below-par performance which makes him lose hope in his leadership.

Bawumia Missing in Action as Gov’t Inaugurates a 50-Member Committee to Stop the Cedi Depreciation

Published

on

In the attempt to forestall further depreciation of the GHC, the government has inaugurated a committee to investigate the causes and propound corrective solutions to them.

Named the FX Development Committee, this endeavor is a fulfillment of a promise made by the finance ministry last year to constitute a bi-partisan committee to look into the problem and help address it.

The Deputy Finance Minister of Finance, Charles Adu Boahen, at the inauguration, stated that the FX Development Committee is not usurping the powers of the central bank.

He said the committee will complement the efforts of the Bank of Ghana in curtailing the usual poor performance of the cedi against other major foreign currencies.

“The formation of this committee is not to infringe on the independence of the central bank in its foreign exchange operations,” he said.

The Deputy Minister explained that the committee will also review the current forex regime, identify the inherent constraints in the system and offer workable alternatives by way of policies and programmes which potentially would reduce FX risks in the economy.

“The committee is also to critically look at the role of automation and digitization as a critical enabler of FX reforms,” he stated.

The cedi last year depreciated by more than 12.7 percent, the worst performance since 2015 when the cedi depreciated by more than 14.6 percent.
