Vigilante Talks: Delta Force disbanded – Leader

The leader of pro-ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) Vigilante group, “Delta Force”, Nana Kwadwo Bamba has announced the disbandment of the group with immediate effect.

According to him, the decision has been taken as a sign of respect to the call by President Akufo Addo for the two leading political parties the ruling New Patriotic Party(NPP) and National Democratic Congress(NDC) to disband all vigilante groups affiliated to them.

Speaking to host Kwaku Owusu Adjei on Anopa Kasapa on Kasapa FM Thursday, Nana Kwadwo Bamba stated that the disbandment of the Delta Force group will end the practice where non-members do wrong in the name of the group.

“We’ve decided that Delta Force group will not remain anymore, the purpose for which this group was formed was to carry out lawful activities but we have a situation where people have infiltrated our ranks and engaged in criminal activities in the name of the group. Now, if the group is no more and anyone commits a crime in the name of the group the laws of Ghana must deal ruthlessly with the person.”

He added: “We’re serving the country and so if Ghanaians say something is not good and should be gotten rid off then we also have to take steps to disband our group.”

Nana Kwadwo Bamba disclosed that ‘Delta Force’ was formed to quell the actions of pro-NDC vigilante group “Azorka Boys” who always snatch ballot boxes at polling centres. He was quick to add that since “Delta Force” was formed the “Azorka Boys” have stopped snatching ballot boxes.”

The National Peace Council on Tuesday 9th April 2019, invited both parties for dialogue following the president’s call for them to meet and resolve the issue of political party vigilantism in the country.

The meeting took place at the Central Hotel, near the British High Commission in Accra.

The meeting was aimed at offering an opportunity for the two factions to table a number of proposals and modalities for disbanding vigilante groups.

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

Published

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.

Chaired by the Finance Minister, Ken Ofori-Atta. The members of the committee are drawn from the Office of the Vice President, Bank of Ghana, Agriculture Ministry, Ghana Union of Traders Association (GUTA), Association of Ghana Industries, some universal banks among other key stakeholders.
