We Must Win!!! Assin North Not NDC Stronghold…Start Working – Nana Akomea To NPP | Politics

Published

on


Chief Executive Officer of State Transport Corporation (STC), Nana Akomea has urged members of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) to work hard and grab the Assin North seat.

James Gyakye Quayson, the current Member of Parliament for Assin North constituency is currently engulfed in a legal tussle over his dual citizenship.

Michael Ankomah-Nimfa dragged the MP to court after he was declared winner of the election. Subsequently, a Cape Coast High Court ruled that the Assin North election was invalid and that Gyakye Quayson breached provisions of the constitution regarding dual citizenship.

He filed a petition to the Supreme Court but the apex court ruled against him, asking that he stop acting as an MP.

According to some political pundits, the SC ruling has opened the way for the Electoral Commission to conduct a by-election. The NDC however, disagrees. They insist Gyakye Quayson is still an MP and that no by-election can be held until the substantive case is determined.

Even though the seat is yet to be declared vacant, Nana Akomea has asked the NPP to grab the seat because it’s not the stronghold of the NDC.

“We must start working; that place is not the stronghold of the NDC and so when we get a good candidate and work hard in the constituency, we can win the seat. We have to win it,” he said on Peace FM‘s morning show ‘Kokrokoo

NDC Picks Flagbearer In February 2023 | Politics

Published

on


The opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) has unveiled a roadmap for the conduct of its internal elections ahead of the 2024 general election, kicking things off on Wednesday, June 15, 2022 with branch executive elections.

The National Executive Committee (NEC) of the NDC, which took the decision at its meeting held on Monday, said the internal primary process will wrap up eight months later in February 2023 when the party will choose a flagbearer to lead it in the national elections.

Per the provisional timetable released by the party, the NDC said the branch executive elections would start on June 15, 2022 and end in July, adding that the results will be collated to build data for the constituency executive elections to be held in September 2022.

The constituency elections will be followed by the regional executive elections in October 2022 and the election of the national executive officers in November 2022.

The cusp of the primary process will be the flagbearership contest which is scheduled to take place in February 2023, and the NDC is poised to confirm a history-making pick to the position, with ex-President John Dramani Mahama tipped to win.

Even though anxiety punctuated by political legacy concerns combined with exhaustion of new ideas, the popularity has tilted the NDC political environment in favour of Mr. Mahama, who also has electoral history on his side.

There is also a unique dynamic to this contest, with former President Mahama eyeing a potential return to the Jubilee House and looking to lay the groundwork by leading criticism against the New Patriotic Party (NPP) government led by President Akufo-Addo.

The NDC is currently split on Mahama faction and Mills faction [now led by Dr. Kwabena Duffuor], and with its national officers serving as a tiebreaker, the internal primaries are expected to come down to a two-horse competitive race at all levels.

Reports said all newly created branches of the NDC will have new branch executives, and that only members of a branch who registered by the end of 2018 can contest, but all members with their names on the branch register can vote.

I’m Winning 2024 Election – John Dumelo Declares | Politics

Published

on


Actor John Dumelo has declared his intentions to once again run for Parliament in the 2024 elections on the ticket of the National Democratic Congress (NDC).

He made this known when he presented an award at the 2022 Vodafone Ghana Music Awards (VGMA) on Saturday.

The Baby Thief actor lost his bid to be MP in the 2020 general elections after losing the Ayawaso West Wuogon Parliamentary seat to the New Patriotic Party’s Lydia Alhassan.

He lost the election with a margin of 2,000 votes. While many people think that he couldn’t win an election for the NDC in that constituency, others believe if he works harder next time he could change the narrative of the NDC in the constituency.

Speaking on the VGMAs stage on Saturday, John is sure he is winning the 2024 Parliamentary election this time. However, he didn’t confirm if it will be in the same constituency.

Speculations are rife that he is moving to the Oti region to contest the yet to be crested SALL seat.

“The last time I stood in front of a large crowd, what I said was 3y3 Zu. I know I lost but I know I will be back because I am winning in 2024”, he noted.

Asiedu Nketia Must Return To The University For Remedials – Bawumia | Politics

Published

on


Vice President, Dr Mahamudu Bawumia, has made fun of the General Secretary of the opposition National Democracy Congress (NDC), Johnson Asiedu Nketia.

According to the Vice President, the NDC’s chief scribe must return to the University of Ghana Business School, for remedials.

Dr Bawumia made this comment, while delivering an address at the launch of the 60th Anniversary Celebration of the University of Ghana Business School on Wednesday, May 11.

“Ladies and gentlemen, it is a great pleasure to be here today, representing the President of the Republic, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo at this major celebration. I am here as one of you, having been an academic myself, including teaching at a business school, in my previous life.

I share in your joy, because sixty years of continuous operation that has produced prominent people in Ghana and the world of business is not a small feat. I think you should be very proud of yourselves for being trailblazers of this institution.

It was like a who is who in Ghana. Even Asiedu Nketiah was part of it. But in his case, Dean, we may have to let him come back for remedial classes”, he said.

The Vice President also used the occasion to congratulate the School for its strides over the years, despite the difficulties that confront it, “due to the resource inadequacy, coupled with the high expectations of stakeholders”.

He added that, “the educational terrain is also fast becoming turbulent, and I believe there is the need for the premier business school in Ghana, to show leadership in this endeavour of providing management education.

I genuinely believe that the University of Ghana Business School has the wherewithal to develop the necessary flair for setting the pace”.
