Show me any project in Ahanta not done by NDC – Lower Dixcove Omanhen dares

Show me any project in Ahanta not done by NDC – Lower Dixcove Omanhen dares

The Paramount Chief of Lower Dixcove in Ahanta West in the Western Region, Nana Akwesi Agyemang IX, has applauded the National Democratic Congress (NDC) for engineering what he describes as almost all the towering development projects on Ahanta land.

According to the Omanhen, all the major development projects including schools, electrification projects and road rehabilitation on Ahanta land were masterminded by the NDC and dared to be shown any other major project done by someone else.

“If you look at anything good that is here in Ahanta West, it all happened during the tenure of the NDC administration. The Baidoo Bonsoe Senior High Technical School, it was done by the NDC, the Agona Nkwanta Market it was the NDC, the Sankor Senior High School, the Abura Vocational Technical, the commencement of the Princess town road. Even my own hometown Nfuma, the water project was done by the NDC. It was during the period of Hon. Arthur that Agona Nkwanta had light. So, they should show me something in Ahanta West that someone else has also added.”

Speaking during a durbar on a visit by former President John Mahama as part of his five-day tour of the Western Region, the charged Omanhen reminded the people of Ahanta West that it is an election year and asked them to “do an introspection, look around and do an inventory of all the development projects in Ahanta West and see if they were all not done by the NDC”.

Nana Akwesi Agyemang, however, appealed to the former President Mahama to construct a modern market and also continue with other projects that his administration started but could not complete when “he wins the 2020 Presidential Election”.

“You started the Sankor Senior High School but could not complete before you left office. We will plead that you complete it when you come back. You also started the Princess Town road but currently construction works have stalled, please pay attention to it when you come. The Cape Three Point and New Amanful roads all need your attention when you come. Again, I think Ahanta West deserves a housing project because Takoradi is choked.”

The Omanhen advertised the NDC Parliamentary Candidate for Ahanta West, Dr. Emmanuel Okumi Andoh, and pleaded that he is made a minister in the next Mahama administration.

According to him, he will personally be in Accra to ensure that his name is added to the ministerial list of the Mahama administration on December 8.

“…if this man does not deserve a ministerial appointment then what. He has been an astute teacher for years. He even became the Vice Chancellor of the Takoradi Technical University. Very qualified. …I will be in your office on December 8 to see to it that on your ministerial list will be the name of Hon. Dr. Emmanuel Okumi Andoh”

NDC 2020 Manifesto Promises- where shall we get the money from?For those who are wondering how the next NDC/Mahama government will finance the transformational policies and programs in our Peoples’ Manifesto, please note that:1. The main reason the Akufo Addo-government has very little developmental projects to show is not that they haven’t had access to adequate resources. Indeed, no government in the history of Ghana has been so lucky as the Akufo Addo government in terms of the astronomical monies that have been available to it- a total resource envelope of about GHS374 billion, which is nearly twice as much resource that was available to the erstwhile Mahama government (GHS193 billion).*

Despite this, President Mahama with significantly fewer resources has completely dwarfed the NPP in every sector as far vital development infrastructure of our country is concerned. This shows the NDC’s superior track record of delivering maximum with minimum resources. * Governance is all about priorities and choices. The Akufo Addo government chose to spend the unprecedented resources they have had on consumption-related expenditures. We, on the other hand, have chosen to spend the resources that will accrue to the next NDC/Mahama government on infrastructural and productive initiatives for the benefit of all Ghanaians. We have done it before and we shall do it again. 2. Even though the NPP has in 3 and half years borrowed and added to the Public Debt, nearly GHS140 billion way more than the total debt of Ghana from Kwame Nkrumah era to 2016 (GHS120 billion), the percentage of capital expenditure as a percentage of our GDP, has declined from 4.5% in 2016 under the Mahama administration to as low as 1.2%. This again shows the NDC’s superior capacity to do far better with the resources available. Delivering much higher development for Ghana by channelling more resources into infrastructure and productive initiatives which brings sustainable growth, jobs, prosperity and more, as opposed to NPP that concentrates on consumption and profligacy.3. To achieve the “Big Push” for example, the NDC government will follow this track record, and redirect resources heavily into development infrastructure and thus increase the ratio of CAPEX to GDP from the current low 1.2% to above 4% as was the case in the year 2016 under the Mahama administration. 4. US$10 billion dollars for the big push may appear to be a lot, but when we remember that between 2013 to 2016, about $6 billion was channelled into development infrastructure in Ghana by the Mahama administration, there is no doubt at all about NDC’s capacity to do it. 5. If we could do so much for the country with just one oil field (Jubilee field), which in 2016 was not even producing at full capacity- imagine what we can do with three (3) oil fields, two of which came about as a result of John Mahama’s leadership and investments into the oil and gas sector. The next NDC/Mahama government will channel a greater percentage of our oil revenues into massive developmental and productive projects. 6. The NDC over the years has demonstrated massive creativity in the way we so competently created the environment that allowed a number of organisations to become so financially strong that they were able to use their own balance sheet to borrow without the people of Ghana had to be burdened by way of paying for those debts. For instance, under the Mahama administration, parastatals like a) The Ghana Ports And Harbour Authority was able to raise US$1.5 billion without government guarantee for the Tema Port expansion project.b) The Ghana Airport company used a similar finance mechanism to raise about $300 million for the famous KIA Terminal 3 and other projects because their balance sheet was significantly enhanced by our decision to cede to them 100% of their IGF- a decision the NPP has reversed since 2017.C) The $500 million Ameri Power Plant is another one of such innovative financing arrangements (BOOT). 7. We also have the track record of having the ingenuity to set up the Ghana Infrastructure Investment Fund (GIIF)- a major mechanism to enable us to raise global financing for major infrastructure to transform the country without further burdening the taxpayer.

* We had the creativity to set up the Ghana EXIM bank with a view of turning us into an export competitive economy- the same bank which the NPP is using to partly finance their so-called 1D1F without giving credit to President Mahama who established it. * The GETFUND is yet another example of our ability to think outside the box and create financing mechanisms for productive infrastructure developments. So, the NDC has done it before and can do it again when given the opportunity.8. To achieve this, we shall cancel the obnoxious capping and realignment policy so as to improve the financials of state-owned enterprises and parastatals so they are able to undertake strategic infrastructure and development projects. 9. Finally, we shall resolutely protect the revenues and royalties of our dear country by i) stopping corrupt schemes like the Agyapa deal. ii) reducing the number of ministries and the number of ministers- the record 125 Ministers and over 1000 Presidential Staffers will be reduced significantly and the savings channeled into productive initiatives for the benefit of all Ghanaians and not a select view. iii) cut down profligate and wasteful expenditures, such as currently pertains at the Office of Government Machinery.Iv) by waging a brutal war against corruption through Operation Sting to save the billions the country is currently loosing through graft and at the detriment of our development. 10. We shall also employ advanced technology to enhance and maximize revenue mobilization through strict tax compliance, expansion of the tax net and efficient revenue mobilization.

These are but a few of the far-reaching and far-sighted means that the next NDC/Mahama government will adopt to generate and properly utilize our resources in pursuit of our bold and transformational agenda. We have done it before, and we know how to do it. John Mahama and the NDC has the track record and can therefore be trusted to deliver again.

We’ll strengthen decentralisation- JM

We’ll strengthen decentralisation- JM

The Flagbearer and Leader of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), John Dramani Mahama, has restated his commitment to strengthening the country’s decentralisation process.

According to Mr. Mahama, “it is only through decentralisation that we can see true progress in the country”.

Speaking at a meeting with the Civil and Local Government Staff Association, Ghana (CLOSAG) in Accra on Thursday, the former President said it is important to put the destiny of development in the hands of the people, adding “without that we cannot progress as a country”.

Mr. Mahama observed that the progress made in decentralisation has been rolled back in the last three and a half years, following the bastardisation of both the civil and local government service by the government.

He said the government has assisted in the hijacking of the work of the civil and local government service by political assistants, pointing out that as a result of interference by the government, recruitment and promotion is no longer based on merit.

If You Become President, You Will Do Worse – A Plus Slams Mahama For Making Too Many Promises

Popular Ghanaian musician and political activist, Kwame Asare Obeng popularly known as A-Plus has slammed former President John Dramani Mahama for the number of promises he continues to make whenever he mounts a platform.

The NDC flagbearer while outdooring his running mate at an event held at the University for Professional Studies in Accra on Monday, July 27 promised to pay all depositors whose monies are locked up as a result of the collapse of financial institutions by government.

But reacting to this, A-Plus who has built an enviable reputation as a fair and firm critic advised the former President to desist from making those promises since he will not fulfill them even if he wins power.

He wrote, “Lol. Boss stop!!! Stop!!! Just tell Ghanaians to vote for you. Don’t make any promises. Just say, Ghana must have a president so vote for me to become president. Those who like you will vote for you”.

Were you not in this country when someone promised to fight corruption but is now fighting everyone who is fighting corruption? Were you not in this country when someone promised to use Anas’ strategy to fight corruption and used investigations by Manasseh as evidence that you were corrupt but is now fighting the same Manasseh? Me, I will never support you or NPP.

I will never believe any of you. I will never vote for any of you. You are the same. If you become president you’ll do worse!!! It is a fact!!! Ghanaians don’t believe in NDC and NPP promises anymore oooo. You are making too many promises. Forget it!!!

SAD! Mahama’s boy Kevin Taylor Insults Rawlings and his entire family [VIDEO]

SAD! Mahama’s boy Kevin Taylor Insults Rawlings and his entire family [VIDEO]
Mahama’s boy Kevin Taylor Insults Rawlings: A youth activist and owner of Loud Silence Media, Kelvin Ekow Taylor who is based in the United States has taken the founder of the opposition National Democratic Congress , Jerry John Rawlings, to the cleaners.
The Mahama boy, in a live broadcast on Facebook on Saturday, July 18, 2020, under his With All Due Respect show, described the former President as ‘a coward, a tall coward’, and also referred to the founder of the NDC as a sycophant and hypocrite who cannot speak against Akufo-Addo.
“J.J. Rawlings is a sycophant and a hypocrite. He is scared of Akufo-Addo. A giant has become a puppet” he thundered, in his usual acerbic tone.

Continuing, Ekow Taylor labeled Rawlings as a liar who cannot speak the truth and asked when he has ever spoken against the sitting President.

As if that was not enough, Ekow Taylor also said,

“Rawlings is not a man. Without a gun, he is no man. It is only when he has a gun that he is a man”

He said the former President has become a puppet to his wife, Nana Konadu Agyemang Rawlings, saying

“As long as Nana Konadu is manipulating Rawlings who does not have a gun and has become lame, he can’t do anything for you NDC”.

He advised the NDC to forget about Rawlings and move on since, “As long as Nana Konadu is alive, John Mahama will never get any favour from Rawlings”

In his view, Mr. Mahama’s boy said he has pithy for Zanetor Rawlings because she is ‘a good politician, very clean but her father is destroying her career’ he concluded.

It’s a shame Volta Region is still same after years of massively voting for NDC – Yvonne Nelson

Actress Yvonne Nelson has taken a swipe at the people of the Volta Region for massively throwing their support behind the National Democratic Congress (NDC) but sadly have nothing to show for it.
According to the actress, it’s a shame that over the years they have been among the regions with the highest number of voters for the NDC but they have failed to secure the needed development compared to other areas in the country
She made this know n through a tweet while journeying to the region.
She said ” By the way, VOLTA REGION, i am shocked!!!! After all your strong votes and numbers, your major road network from Akosombo to Ho is terrible, one can easily die on this road! I cant believe it, we swerved potholes like playing football”.
Actress Yvonne Nelson has always championed the need for social change in Ghana considering the fact that leaders have over the years disappointed the citizens.
She is known to have organized the “Dumsor Must Stop Vigil” during the tenure of John Dramani Mahama and has promised to organize one if the incessant power cuts does not stop.



Founder of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), former President Jerry John Rawlings, has congratulated former Minister for Education, Professor Jane Naana Opoku Agyemang on her selection as Vice-Presidential candidate of the National Democratic Congress (NDC).

The former President said prior to the announcement, he was informed by the party’s Presidential candidate, former President John Dramani Mahama that following consultations with the party hierarchy, Professor Opoku Agyemang was the favourite among a list of shortlisted candidates.

“If this was the case then there was no reason to stand against it even though I had a few others in mind,” the former President said when the former President and leading party executives called on him on Thursday to introduce the Vice-Presidential candidate.

The party founder urged Professor Opoku Agyemang not to deviate from her principles of integrity. He also urged Ghanaians to go out to register towards the December Presidential and Parliamentary elections, calling on political parties to desist from activities that will create civil unrest.

Earlier, former President John Mahama in introducing his running mate said Professor Opoku Agyemang had the credentials worthy of her selection and listed several achievements including her appointment as the first female Vice Chancellor of a Ghanaian university and her significant contribution to the educational sector during her tenure as Minister.

General Secretary, Johnson Asiedu Nketia who accompanied party Chairman, Samuel Ofosu Ampofo and Kofi Attoh, party Vice Chairman to the meeting, said Professor Opoku Agyemang was a very good choice. General Mosquito as he is popularly known, said the Vice-Presidential candidate was outstanding and he was confident the party will win the upcoming elections. He said the selection of Professor Opoku Agyemang goes to prove internationally that the NDC stands for the promotion of youth and women empowerment.

John Dumelo accuses Ayawaso West Wuogon MP of organising abuse of NDC members

The Parliamentary candidate for the National Democratic Congress (NDC) at Ayawaso West Wuogon has accused the MP of orchestrating the physical abuse and attacks on his members.

John Dumelo in a statement alleged that police personnel at the various registration centres have often looked on whilst NDC members are assaulted.

He, therefore, cautioned that since the security agents have failed to act despite the numerous complaints to them, they will resort to alternative relieves to ensure that his party members are protected from ‘thuggery and hooliganism’.



The  Ayawaso  West  Wuogon  Constituency  has  once  again  become  a  scene  of violence  and  assaults.  There  have  been  persistent  reports  of  physical  abuse  meted out  to  registration  agents,  sympathizers  of  the  NDC,  observers  and  innocent persons  perceived  to  be  supporters  of  the  John  Dumelo  for  MP  2020  Campaign.

Within  the  course  of  the  on-going  registration,  agents  of  the  NDC  have  been brutalized  often  in  the  presence  of  the  police.  Official complaints have been lodged with the Police with no response to bring perpetrators to book thus far.

The  country  is  reminded  of  the  painful  incidents  that  took  place  during the Ayawaso  West  Wuogon  bye-elections  which  led  to  innocent  people  being assaulted  in  the  constituency  rendering  some  of  them  paralysed.

It  is  a  national shame  that  the  only  crime  of  constituents  that  day,  was  their  desire  to  exercise their  voting  franchise  leading  to  the  maiming  and  violence  the  whole  nation witnessed.

Residents  of  the  constituency will  not  forget  the  negative  attention  the happenings  of  that  day  as  they  played  out  in  a  government  commission  of  inquiry.

Every  Ghanaian  is  aware  of  the  recommendations  and  the  refusal  of  government to  act  and  allow  the  full  rigors  of  the  law  to  deal  with  individuals  found  to  have inflicted  violence on innocent citizens.

The  John  Dumelo  for  MP  2020  Campaign  team  wishes  to  serve  notice  to  the sitting  MP  –  Madam  Lydia  Alhassan,  that  it  is  her  duty  to  promote  peace  and serenity  in  the  constituency. 

Her  campaign  that  is  bound  to  fail  must  not  be  seen to  tacitly  approve  and  profit  from  the  violence  being  perpetrated  on  the  innocent constituents  of  Ayawaso  West  Wuogon  in  the  on-going  registration  exercise.

Should  she  continue  to  remain  indifferent  to  the  concerns  raised  that  she  has  been made  aware  of  severally,  alternative  reliefs  within  the  confines  of  our  laws  will  be sought  by  this  Campaign  team  to  ensure  protection  of  all  constituents  from  acts  of thuggery  and hooliganism.

“And help us to resist oppressors rule with all our will and might.”

Thank You.
