Rawlings Ex Jj

Former President of the Republic of Ghana, Flight Lieutenant Jeremiah John Rawlings, who doubles as founder of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) has said the people of the Volta Region have nothing to show after years of loyalty to the NDC, MyNewsGh.com can report.

The Region, long described as the ‘World Bank’ of the NDC, Mr Rawlings said: “they have nothing to show”.

He bemoaned the failure of the NDC to improve on the road network in the region or work at tackling poverty which is chronic in the region.

According to the founder of the NDC, “the Volta Region have faithfully voted for the National Democratic Congress on many occasions but they have nothing to be proud of because they live in poverty coupled with bad road network.”

Mr Rawlings, who is not known for flattery delivered this message right in the face of one of the Volta Region’s fastest rising political ‘stars’, one whom the former President had cause to once refer to allegedly as one of ‘Babies with sharp teeth’, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa.

Mr Ablakwa, Member of Parliament for North Tongu had led the chiefs and people of Mepe, to announce to the former President news of the death of Mamaga Awusi Sreku II, a great queen who ruled for over 63 years.

Mr Rawlings described the late queen’s death as a big loss to the nation, but losing sight of the opportunity to pass some comments on the alleged neglect of the region.

Kwesi Nyantakyi’s statement to CID over Anas corruption video

Excerpts of the statement Kwesi Nyantakyi made to the police claiming the ‘businessmen’ he met with told him they gave $8 million to the National Democratic Congress and President John Mahama in 2016 have surfaced online.

An investigative piece by Anas Aremeyaw Anas and his Tiger Eye PI team allegedly captured the Ghana Football Association boss using the names of President Akufo-Addo, Vice President Bawumia and other top government officials to demand ‘bribe’ from some supposed foreign investors into the country.

The GFA boss was called in for investigations on Wednesday, May 23, after President Akufo-Addo had made a report to the police for using his name in a business transaction in an investigative piece by Anas.

Mr. Nyantakyi is reported to have said that his conversation with Anas’ agent had been edited, challenging the investigative journalist to play the unedited full conversation if he was not up to any mischief.

Reports suggested that person who posed as the agent for Anas in the interview with Nyantakyi claimed to the effect that the Sheikh supported the NDC’s campaign with the $8 million.

Barely hours to the public screening of the piece, Nyantakyi’s statement to the police is out in the public domain.

Below is the statement:
