‘You Can Be Bias But Be Fair ‘- Former MP Tells Bagbin | Politics

Published

on


A former Member of Parliament for Tamale Central, Inusah Fuseini says all past Speakers of Parliament have at a point in time during deliberations in the House or outside of Parliament, been accused of being unfair to the opposition party.
 
He said the current Speaker, Alban Bagbin is not different from his predecessors and should therefore not be perturbed by accusations of bias from the majority.
 
Every speaker has his personal bias,” he said in an interview with NEAT FM’s morning show “Ghana Montie.”
 
Inusah Fuseini was discussing Alban Bagbin’s claims that he can’t be ‘neutral’  but he will be impartial as a Speaker.
 
He explained how possible it is to be an impartial Speaker saying “he (Bagbin) has to take a firm stance on issues as and when they come before the House.”
 
Bagbin on Tuesday, March 1, 2022, revealed that he is not the first Speaker to exhibit both traits under the Fourth Republic. He referred to the first Speaker under the republic as his mentor in exhibiting impartiality and non-neutrality at the same time.
 
However, Mr Fuseini said the trend of speakers not being neutral in the august house is a norm.
 
He cannot be neutral but he should be fair,” he noted.

‘Mr Dumsor’ Was An Unfair Nickname Given To Me By Ghanaians – John Mahama | Politics

Published

on


Former president, John Dramani Mahama, has admitted to being unhappy Ghanaians branded him with the nickname “Mr Dumsor” also known as ‘Mr Power Cut’.

During the tenure of John Mahama under the National Democratic Congress, the nation was plunged into a peak power crisis that lasted years for almost three years.

Reacting to the nickname for the first time in an interview with Uganda-based NBS Television, the former president described it as ‘unfair’ on the part of Ghanaians to brand him as such.

“Yeah it was!,” he admitted.

“What you are referring to is the actual energy crisis Ghana went through, the actual cause of the energy crisis was the lack of investment over the years by previous governments in generation. Ghana’s consumption in terms of electricity consumption had been rising about 12% per annum,” he said this when explaining the reasons for the power crisis at the time.

Meanwhile, other reputable outlets such as the BBC had earlier referenced John Mahama’s second bid to contest in the 2016 general elections with a headline; “Ghana election: Can ‘Mr Power Cut’ John Mahama win a second term?”

The persistent power crisis also known as ‘Dumsor’ which was unbearable, unpredictable and tough for many citizens at the time quickly became a household name in the country.

The situation culminated in the collapse of many businesses and livelihoods in the country.

Political Campaigning That Impacts Local Industry; Awhendze Pa Nkasa –  | Politics

Published

on


Political campaigns whether internal or across the divide in our country tends to focus on the negative. It is often a platform for competitors to put themselves ahead of others by selling their high points and downgrading their opponents, if they can. This mode of campaigning, which predates the country’s independence has characterized every quest for leadership, since attaining nationhood.

Campaigns under the Fourth Republic have been anything but different. Candidates seek out their opponents and attempt to run them down in order to secure the will of the electorates. This unorthodoxy that characterizes political organization, though criticized is yet to leave the country’s political space.

As the ruling New Patriotic Party opened nominations for leadership across the hierarchies of the party, a new wind is blowing in the Western Region, which has seen a local fabric brand marketed across the length and breadth of the resource-rich region of Ghana.

Wherever you find a particular candidate, the refrain from party sympathizers and onlookers has been “awhendze pa nkasa,” to wit, “quality beads do not rattle”. The refrain isn’t an empty one. It is predicated on the adornment of the candidate, who long before his nomination was approved by the party hierarchy in the region adopted not just the expression but the local fabric with that insignia and has made it his campaign attire, sporting different shades of it at all public events.

“Awhendze pa nkasa” evokes an understanding of quality. Quality that one believes must permeate every aspect of our life. It’s a belief that detailed oriented leadership, must take precedence over mediocrity. That leadership must inure to the benefit of the people and that leaders must truly serve their people in honesty and civility.

That is what Charles COBBINA, Western Regional Secretary hopeful of the New Patriotic Party represents. His choice of “Awhendze pa nkasa” as the campaign cloth was a demonstration of his belief in Ghana and its traditions. As a marketing professional, he understands the essence of branding and associated himself with a brand that he believes exemplified the sort of leadership that he intends to bring to bear should delegates of the ruling party in the region bless him with their votes come May 28, 2022.

Mr. COBBINA insists that the party at this time need not dwell on emotions, if it is to break the eight. The partyleadership requires competence, experience, maturity and innovation at all levels to secure the much-needed victory in the 2024 general elections.
