In his last letter as ‘Citizen Vigilante’ of which he dubbed: “Parting thoughts as Citizen Vigilante”, the former deputy attorney general said no one must harbour fear over his approval “so long as that citizen has not seriously violated any law.”

The Member of Parliament (MP) for Asunafo South, Mr Eric Opoku, has received an award as the best MP for communal and rural development for 2017.
The award, which was conferred on him by the Bureau of Research on Governance, Commerce and Administration (BORGCA), is in recognition of his contribution to the development efforts in the Asunafo South Constituency.

Presenting the award to Mr Opoku in Accra last Thursday, the Executive Director of BORGCA, Professor Victor Yankah, stated that the bureau came to that conclusion after a thorough research in the Asunafo South Constituency.

The former Vice-President, Mr Paa Kwesi Amissah-Arthur, has assured the National Democratic Congress (NDC) party members that the NDC would surely return to power in 2020 and help revive the economy which was seriously facing challenges in the hands of the New Patriotic Party (NPP)- led government.

He, however, said winning the 2020 election would depend on unity among the party members from the grassroots to the national level, stressing that the party lost to the NPP due to factions and disunity in the NDC at the time of the last election.

He said, “we did not promise Ghanaians to do this or that when we were coming into power, but we delivered to the expectation of all Ghanaians, including the construction of roads and school infrastructure. We created jobs for the people before we left office, but what are we seeing currently with the NPP? They made the loudest noise of doing everything for this nation, but we can all attest to the fact that NPP has failed us."

The constituency primaries for the New Patriotic Party (NPP), originally scheduled to be held between February 21 and 24, 2018, has now been slated for Saturday, February 24 to Tuesday, February 27, 2018.

“This decision has been necessitated by a number of compelling reasons, including some important commitments of the party, the government, as well as the party's Members of Parliament in the august house, all of which coincide with the original dates for the Constituency Annual Delegates Conference, otherwise known as the constituency primaries,” according to a statement issued by the acting General Secretary of the NPP, Mr John Boadu.
