Man In Court For Insulting MP | Politics

Published

on


An Accra District Court has granted a GHC10,000.00 bail with two sureties to a businessman who allegedly insulted Mr Carlos Ahenkorah, Member of Parliament (MP) for the Tema West Constituency.

Nana Yaw Ntim pleaded not guilty to offensive conduct.

Meanwhile, the case has been referred to the New Patriotic Party (NPP) for an Alternate Dispute Resolution (ADR).

The parties are expected to be back in court on May 24, 2022, to give a report on the settlement.

The Defense Counsel in praying for bail said the Party had existing structures to settle the matter and that the accused had people of substance to stand as sureties, adding that the case did not warrant public resources for him to be remanded.

He then prayed for the Court to refer the matter to the ADR.

The prosecution told the Court presided over by Madam Ama Adomako Kwakye that the accused person was a resident of Dwahenya near Tema and a member of NP P in the same Constituency.

It said on February 03, 2022, the complainant petitioned the Director General of the Criminal Investigation Department of the Ghana Police Service against the accused for constantly raining insults on him on Party WhatsApp platforms called, “Vibrant 2024 NPP,” and “speak your mind NPP,” without any provocation.

The Court heard that the MP also submitted a pen drive containing the voice recordings of the accused person to the police as evidence.
In the recording, the accused person was heard uttering abusive words against the MP.

The prosecution said the accused person was arrested on February 7, 2022, for investigation, where he admitted some of the voice recordings and claimed that some of them were doctored.

Bawumia Is In “Pole Position” To Be NPP’s Flagbearer – Says Ben Ephson | Politics

Published

on


Renowned pollster, Ben Ephson has said that vice-president, Dr Mahamudu Bawumia is in a prime position to lead the New Patriotic Party (NPP) in the 2024 general elections.

His assertion follows Monday’s declaration by NPP stalwart and former MP for the Asikuma-Odoben-Brakwa constituency, PC Appiah-Ofori that he prefers Bawumia as the presidential candidate for the party.

Speaking on Asaase Radio on Monday (16 May), Ephson said “moving to PC Appiah-Ofori’s choice of Bawumia, he’s been in the party long enough and I think that Bawumia is in a pole position for the flagbearer. I think that I agree with PC Appiah-Ofori that Bawumia seems to be in pole position.”

“I think that people are entitled to their views. Even though some have come out declaring for Alan [Kyerematen] so, PC Appiah-Ofori coming out for Bawumia, he has one vote.”

Bawumia is not being projected as next NPP flagbearer
Meanwhile, the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) has dismissed assertions suggesting that there is a general acceptance of Bawumia as the next flagbearer of the party.

The NPP is yet to open nominations for the position, however, the vice-president’s name and a few others such as the former Energy Minister Boakye Kyeremateng Agyarko, Trade and Industry Minister Alan Kyerematen, former Railways Minister Joe Ghartey, and the Agric Minister Dr Owusu Afriyie Akoto are already making rounds as contenders.

I Prepared A Concession Speech Before 2016 Elections – Ex-Prez Mahama | Politics

Published

on


John Mahama, the former president has said he went into the 2016 elections knowing that he could lose or win therefore he had speeches prepared for both circumstances.

President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo defeated his main opponent by 53.8% to 44.4% in the polls after a third attempt at the presidency.

Talking to Samson Kasumba on Uganda-based NBS Television, Mahama said he has a track record of conceding defeat but feels the 2020 election ended under questionable circumstances. 

Win or lose
“When going into an election, prepare to either win or lose. In 2016, I prepared two speeches, and unfortunately, I had to use the concession speech in 2016,” Mahama said.

“In 2016, I was the incumbent President, and I lost an election. I conceded and congratulated my opponent and attended his inauguration.

“I have a track record of conceding to elections asserting they were free and fair. 2021 was not the same. When I was President, we didn’t interfere with the election security committee. They did their job,” Mahama said.

World-class EC
Mahama said despite challenges, Ghana’s Electoral Commission has earned for itself an enviable record of world-class electoral body.

“We have gone from metallic boxes to transparent boxes, photo ID cards, and biometric registration.
We believe the Electoral Commission has built enough capacity to hold a free and fair election.”

“We have held several elections since 1992 in Ghana. Ghana has become the gold standard for elections, and our electoral commission is prided as one of the best on the continent,” the former president said.

2024 Polls: I’ll Contest For NPP Flagbearer Position – Kennedy Agyapong | Politics

Published

on


Assin Central Member of Parliament, Kennedy Agyapong has announced that he will contest in the upcoming presidential primaries of the governing New Patriotic Party (NPP) ahead of the 2024 general elections.

He made this announcement on his television network on Monday May 16. The NPP will be electing its flagbearer next year for the next elections.

In relation to the process for the internal polls, President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo told the leadership of the NPP to ensure that the process to elect the presidential candidate is fair.

He indicated that fairness would reduce the level of divisions that will come in the party as a result of the contest.

Mr Akufo-Addo noted that as is in the case of every competition, there will be some form of divisions in the party after the internal polls. However, he said, the person to be elected as the flagbearer should have the ability to unite all the fronts.

“I am hoping that level playing field that allows us to elect our next presidential candidate will also bring us a candidate who can unite our party. Because competition, inevitably, will bring some divisions in the party but we are the ruling party so, there is the responsibility on us to conduct ourselves in a way that reduces cracks.

“Cracks in the NPP can have a reflection on the state, we are the ruling party and if our base which is our party is fractured that facture can be translated into fracturing the state, nobody wants that,” he said on Accra based Peace FM last year.
