ASIEDU NKETIAH MAKES LITTLE SENSE WITH HIS TAKE ON WHY KEN OFORI-ATTA WAS NOT RESISTED BY MINORITY.

Published

If Ghanaians were nursing the notion that the NDC has been traipsing around our political landscape with an air of patriotism, they’re better off snapping out of this delusion.

A deluge of reasons have been assigned by the NDC, the Minority, as to why they joined forces with the Majority to approve Ken Ofori-Atta as the Finance Minister.

Of all the ludicrously absurd reasons they have given, none stands out and verges on the ridiculous than the one Asiedu Nketiah gave on Neat FM. The mindset of the leadership of the NDC loudly depicts the looming danger of this country if these people are given the mandate to govern us.

Johnson Asiedu Nketiah said that Ken Ofori-Atta has been a mess in running the Finance Ministry and country’s economy and so if he is given the green light to continue, he will plunge the economy further into a dungeon, thereby destroying the economy.

This, Mr. Asiedu Nketiah indicated, bodes well for the opposition party since the disheveled economy would inure to the advantage of the opposition National Democratic Congress during elections.

In effect, the NDC has chosen to be quiet for the country’s economy to be in ruins, assuming without admitting that what they are saying is even true. That couches the NDC as a tradition peopled with elements who do not want the best for the country. It is all about their parochial interests.

Stretching their pathetic argument, one can proceed to ask the NDC why then do they rant, whine and berate Government when they have reasons to believe that things have gone wrong?

Since keeping quiet would ensure that things deteriorate further, upping their political fortunes further, why then do they raise issues about them? This is senseless, if one looks at it critically.

World Cup 2022 Qualifiers: Ghana To Miss Jordan Ayew And Amartey Against South Africa

The Black Stars are set to do without some first team players for their upcoming back-to-back games against Ethiopia and South Africa.

Premier League clubs have decided against releasing players for September’s round of World Cup qualifiers which are due to take place in Covid-19 red-listed countries, ruling Crystal Palace striker Jordan Ayew, Leicester City centre-back Daniel Amartey and Brentford winger Tariqe Fosu out of Ghana’s showdown away against South Africa.

 

According to a statement by the FA, nearly 60 players from 19 clubs have been affected by the decision.

 

South Africa, who are on the UK’s coronavirus red list, are set to host Ghana for a Group G matchday two fixture in Johannesburg on September 6.

“Premier League clubs have today reluctantly but unanimously decided not to release players for international matches played in red-list countries next month,” the FA announced on their official website on Tuesday.

“The clubs’ decision, which is strongly supported by the Premier League, will apply to nearly 60 players from 19 Premier League clubs who are due to travel to 26 red-list countries in the September international window.

“This follows Fifa’s current position not to extend its temporary release exception for players required to quarantine on their return from international duty.

“Extensive discussions have taken place with both The FA and the Government to find a solution, but due to ongoing public health concerns relating to incoming travellers from red-list countries, no exemption has been granted

Ghana are set to open their World Cup qualifiers with a home clash with Ethiopia on September 3 before making the trip to South Africa.
Earlier this month, Black Stars coach CK Akonnor unveiled a provisional list of 30 players for the uncoming double-header, the roster including Ayew, Amartey and Fosu.

UTAG is Setting A Bad Precedent For Disobeying Court Injunction – Kabila

UTAG is Setting A Bad Precedent For Disobeying Court Injunction – Kabila

Former Acting General Secretary of the Convention People’s Party (CPP), James Kwabena Bomfeh, has slammed the UTAG executives for not obeying the injunction order by a High Court regarding their industrial action.

UTAG has refused to call off their strike despite calls on them to return to work.

The National Labour Commission, in an attempt to compel them to resume work, secured an injunction from an Accra High Court but the University lecturers Association has defied the court ruling.

According to UTAG President, Prof. Charles Marfo, the injunction has rather worsened the case for the Labour Commission.

“We were almost reaching a consensus until the government’s court issue arose. Now, a whole new ballgame has started because we’re also asking our lawyers to go to court . . . We were getting there. We were pushing; now this argument I’m making is lost,” he said.

Addressing the issue during Peace FM’s ”Kokrokoo”, James Kwabena Bomfeh, popularly called Kabila, bemoaned the UTAG response to the Labour Commission’s injunction.

According to him, UTAG somehow disrespecting the injunction must be condemned in no uncertain terms stressing ”if care is not taken and we allow for positive defiance against a court ruling, we will be setting a certain bad precedent”.
