Livingstone Satekle, AKA Stonebwoy, the Reggae dance hall artiste posted a press release earlier last Sunday after the incident.

Black Cedi, Stonebwoy’s Manager, made this post on his insta page, following the fight that broke out on the stage of the 20th VGMA 2019 awards that took place yesterday at the Accra International Conference Centre. The cause of the fight is still unknown but speculations abounded.

Stonebwoy was seen holding a gun on the stage in during the scuffle. Thus, it is for this reason his team posted the press release where the Bhim Nation CEO apologised to Ghanaians on his behaviour and cited the reasons for his actions.

Contrary to what has been widely known and accepted as a standard measure and expected period of commencement and completion of structural projects particularly dams, it has emerged that some dams currently being constructed under government’s One Village One Dam policy are being started and completed in less than one week.

This is according to residents of some communities in the Upper East region who have expressed shock and disappointment at the manner in which the dams are being constructed.

Community members of Dachio and Kajolo both in the Upper East region say they were ‘wowed’ by the execution of the projects in their respective areas in less than a week.

Expressing their disapproval in an interview with A1 Radio’s Joshua Asaah, the residents say what has been done does not qualify as dams and cannot be helpful to them as expected.

“How can you construct a dam in less than a week, in fact in four days” a Male community member quizzed.

Out of a total of 140 dams allocated to the Upper East region, only 40 have been constructed with some at various stages of completion with each dam estimated to cost Two hundred and Forty Thousand Ghana cedis (GH¢240,000).

Meanwhile, Former Pro-Vice Chancellor of the University for Development Studies (UDS), Professor David Millar has described as a failure governments One-Village One-Dam initiative currently being implemented in the Northern part of the country.

Speaking in a documentary interview by Bolga based A1 Radio’s reporter Joshua Asaah, Professor David Millar, a development consultant and founder of the Millar Open University said the implementation of the One Village One Dam programme has been characterized by misplaced priorities, inappropriate siting and poor construction which have virtually negated the purpose and essence of the initiative.

“Some of them are misplaced. You don’t go giving a village that has a dam another dam and go to a village that has a whole river that doesn’t dry and give them a dam” he said.

Former President Jerry John Rawlings has swiftly responded to a ‘sharp-teethed’ attack from former Deputy Information Minister Felix Ofosu Kwakye, describing him as a ‘little greedy neck.’

The ex-President, who coined the phrase ‘babies with sharp teeth,’ was prompted into action after the former deputy minister under the previous Mahama administration told him to conduct himself like an elderly person.

Former President Rawlings coined ‘babies with sharp teeth’ and ‘greedy bastards’ during the previous Mills administration after coming under attack from youthful appointees notorious for hurling insults at people with dissenting views.

The former President, founder of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), gained notoriety in the corridors of his own party for openly querying what he considered traits of bad governance at the hands of his successors.

While being hosted on a radio station, the former deputy minister was asked to react to the charge by Mr. Rawlings that he had purchased two mansions in Accra for $3 million, one of which he gave to his wife.

Visibly infuriated, he asked that the former President should conduct himself properly and avoid concluding on issues the way he had done.

Little Persons

In a carefully crafted response on social media platform Twitter, the former President told Ofosu Kwakye, whom he described as a ‘greedy neck’ and ‘a little person’, that his denial about the two mansions is not surprising “since after all more important people have denied bigger crimes and will continue to do same in future.”

He said little persons like him “are entitled to stand their ground flamboyant and aggressive talk. The law, nonetheless, will hopefully catch up with their greedy necks.”

Initial Attack

The former deputy communications minister, who is noted for his use of intemperate language against political opponents, stated that the former President should have called him for a discussion over the subject when he stumbled upon the information about the mansion purchased instead of drawing conclusion.

“…You cannot say you are an elderly person and yet when you are informed that someone has done something wrong, you won’t even investigate the matter thoroughly before commenting openly, accusing the person wrongly just like that….”

He fired again that “because he is an elderly person whose words are taken as the gospel truth, that is the reason why he should have been mindful of his utterances in order not to malign someone on the basis of allegation without proof and that is why Ghanaians ought to be disappointed,” he said.

According to Mr. Rawlings, a deputy minister who served in the erstwhile Mahama-led NDC administration, bought two mansions worth $3 million; each building cost $1.5 million from the property owner in Accra after the NDC lost the 2016 general elections.

Origins of Anger

During one of the commemorations of the June 4 uprising, the former President accused the former deputy information minister of buying two mansions after the NDC lost power in 2016, a charge which has bothered him so much.

According to Rawlings, “The property owner was very sad and he was very angry. Why do you think he was angry? Because he has sweated to build these houses to sell for profit and instead of the money to come into his account or being given a cheque, he was being given physical cash!”
“What that meant was that he had to spend the whole night counting the $1.5 million each times two, the $3 million. Do you get me?” he asked humorously.

More Fire

According to Kwakye Ofosu, “What he did (the allegations Rawlings put out) should have rather come from a young man so that he (Rawlings) can chastise and correct that person for drawing hasty conclusion based on an allegation and not the other way around … We must take note that we are doing politics and so we must be mindful of what we say; it does not mean that due to politics, we must fabricate stories against others because you are an elderly person.”

Coup Link

“After all, as a former President who has served this country for 19 years and even before the 19 years, he had attempted two coup d’états, and so for such a person, he should know the significance of investigating matters before action is taken because someone’s life is on the line…”
“Therefore, should someone even snitch on somebody, you have to investigate the matter before you comment on it. Like I earlier indicated, the allegation has no basis; it is not true,” he added.

Special Prosecutor

On the alleged appearance of his name on the list of the Special Prosecutor, he said there is no crime in purchasing mansions in the country.

“First of all, they have alleged that I have bought a mansion; even if I have bought a mansion, I have flouted no law because there is no law that stops anybody from buying a mansion but as I have said, I have not bought any mansion but they have my name penned down as having bought a mansion….”

“I am asking that didn’t Martin Amidu and his team know the person who bought that mansion before they put my name down? If they don’t have a confirmation from the person who made the allegation, why have they added my name to the list? So clearly, this is a huge joke which must be thrown out because it does not make sense; it is baseless and pure lies,” he added.

Asante Kotoko trainer, C. K Akonnor says he is unhappy with his players despite their 2-0 win over Medeama Sporting Club in the ongoing Normalisation Committee Special Competition at the Baba Yara Sports Stadium on Sunday.

The Porcupine Warriors whipped the Tarkwa-based side to move to the top in Zone B of the Tier 1 league.

Songne Yacouba and Abdul Fatawu Shafiu scored two goals in the second half for the home side.

But Kotoko’s coach C.K Akonnor insisted that they “did not play too well” despite their win.

“We struggled to pass the ball when we’re in possession. But we looked sharper upfront and we delivered,” C.K Akonnor said after the win.

“I was happy with the fact that Yacouba (Songne) came in and brought some freshness into the game. He really did very well.”

“Honestly, we didn’t play too well but we were efficient up front. I’m glad we were able to convert the chances we had,” he ended.

The Porcupine Warriors will travel to Aduana Stars in the last round to determine their qualification in the next stage of the competition.

The games are said to have been fixed for June 6 and 9 in the United Arab Emirates where the Black Stars will pitch camp ahead of the tournament.

The 30-man squad is expected to be trimmed down to 23 players following the two week camp in Dubai.

The visit formed part of his six-day working visit to the Oti, North East and the Savannah regions.

The visit which started from last Saturday took him to Daboya, Damongo, Sawla and Yapei.

Interactions

While at Daboya, the President paid a courtesy call on the Paramount Chief of Wasipe, Mimuni Anyami Kabasagya II, and interacted with smock weavers at Daboya, who later presented him and the First Lady, Mrs Rebecca Akufo-Addo, with commemoratory smocks.

President Akufo-Addo also interacted with students of the Sawla Senior High School, where he was informed that since the Free SHS policy started, enrolment had steadily increased from 37 per cent in the 2017/2018 academic year to 39 per cent in the current 2018/2019 academic year.”

President Akufo-Addo also inspected construction works on a District Hospital at Sawla, which is expected to be completed soon.

Church service

On Sunday, the President climaxed his tour with a church service at the St. Anne’s Catholic Cathedral in Damongo, during which he urged residents of the Savannah Region to eschew chieftaincy disputes and live as one people, as the cost of conflicts had a devastating impact not only on the people of the region, but on the country as a whole.

The President admonished the congregation to join in the fight against illegal mining, popularly referred to as galamsey.

He said work on the Damongo Water Project would begin soon, as it was set to be discussed at the next Cabinet meeting.

Warehouse

President Akufo-Addo inaugurated a 1,000 tonne capacity warehouse at Yagba/Kubori in the Mamprugu/Moaduri District as his last assignment in the North East Region before he moved to the Savannah Region.

The project, which is under the government’s One-district, One-warehouse initiative, is to help reduce post-harvest losses in the area.

It is the first of its kind to be constructed in the new region and will improve on-farm practices such as handling and storage, which exposed farm produce to pests. It will also facilitate trade between small-scale farmers and wholesalers in major cities.

Mamprugu/ Moaduri is a major production zone for rice and maize with current production levels of between 4,000 and 5,000 tonnes per annum.

Agriculture transformation

Inaugurating the facility on the second day of his tour of the North East Region, President Akufo-Addo said the project was in line with the government’s resolve to transform the agriculture sector.

The President said the government would continue to support the farmers in the district with farm implements to enable them to increase food production and improve on their income levels.

President Akufo-Addo, who also inspected an irrigation project under the Planting for Food and Jobs programme, gave an assurance that he would do everything possible to support the project which was initiated by a foreign investor.

Infrastructure

Addressing a durbar of chiefs and people at Yagba/Kubori, the President said he had taken notice of the numerous challenges the district faced, including the poor road network and inadequate health facilities and promised that he would facilitate the processes for them to be addressed, as a matter of urgency.

“I am going to sit down with the Minister of Health on Monday to discuss how we can, as a matter of urgency, address the health needs of the people.

We will address all your concerns but I cannot assure you that we will address everything at once.

We will prioritise them,” he said.

Commendation

The Chief of Yagba, Gbinaba Alhaji Iddrisu Adjei, in a speech read on his behalf, commended the President for demonstrating commitment to providing the necessary development projects for the area.

He said the people of the district would remain indebted to President Akufo-Addo because of the number of promises he had fulfilled in what he described as such a short time.

Ghana goalkeepers trainer Richard ‘Olele’ Kingston says the Black Stars will end their Africa Cup of Nations trophy drought if leaders of the national team approach Nigerian pastor T.B Joshua.

The Black Stars are desperate to end their title hoodoo at the 2019 edition of Africa’s flagship football competition next month when the tournament kicks off in Egypt.

Kingston, who manages also coaches the second division club Emmanuel FC which belongs to the pastor, says the preacher man is capable of interceding on behalf of the national team to win the title.

He added that he has already spoken to man whom many of his followers believe has supernatural powers to make difficult things easy.

The former international, who attends the church of TB Joshua, says he is ready to lead the Ghana FA members to the church in Nigeria to help Ghana win the title, claiming he did the same with the Super Eagles of Nigeria six years ago.

”If the nation wants us to seek his help, I am ready to lead us meet him so he prays for us. I am confident he can and will help us win because he has helped others like Nigeria in 2013,” Richard Olele Kingson told Oyerepa 100.7FM

“Ogenyi Onazi is one of his sons he is a pianist at the synagogue church so consulted him to help them.

“I have talked to him to help us that was before the qualifiers and so if a delegation from Ghana go to meet him,it will not be out of place because he can help.”

Ghana’s Black Stars are seeking to end the 37 years trophy drought in Egypt as the last time the country won Africa’s prestigious tournament was in 1982 in Libya.

The Black Stars defeated the host country [Libya] on penalties to lift the ultimate.

The technical handlers of the Black Stars have been charged to win the ultimate or will be shown the exit.

The African football powerhouse has come close in winning the trophy in 1992, 2010 and 2015.

Two persons are reported dead as some parts of Accra got flooded after an hour of heavy rains on Monday morning

Areas like Okponglo, Legon, Kwame Nkrumah Circle interchange, Avenor, Alajo and some parts of Kaneshie got flooded.

The two bodies were found at Adabraka, a flood-prone area in the capital.

At the Kwame Nkrumah Circle, some vehicles got stuck in the floods while pedestrians traversed the knee-level floods.

Flooding in Accra is perennial and all attempts by the authorities to get citizens to avoid building on waterways and clogging the drains have proven futile.
