Playwright Latif Abubakar of Globe Productions, has put together a new play to campaign for road safety.

The president of IMANI Ghana, Franklin Cudjoe, has described as saddening frantic efforts by government officials to justify the staggering 998 staff at the Jubilee House.

The number is some 220 staff more than the 778 employees presented to parliament by the erstwhile John Mahama administration in 2013.

According to the report released to Parliament on the staffing position of the Office of the President for the period January 7, 2017 to December 31, 2017, the office had nine Ministers of State, 27 presidential staffers, 256 Junior Political Appointees and 706 civil and public servants.

Dr. Kwasi Aning has bemoaned the partisan politics that shrouded discussions on Ghana’s military pact with the United States of America.

“People in high office deliberately leaked sensitive information around these agreements and by doing so without placing the interest of Ghana and Ghanaians at the centre of these discussions, have exposed all of us to new threats because Islamic State (I.S.) in the West African Province now says: ‘Oh, so, Ghana, you created a platform for the U.S. to launch attacks against us.

MP for North Tongu, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa

Politics

National Democratic Congress [NDC] MP for North Tongu, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa, claims the number of persons said to be working under the Presidency has been understated.

According to him, the number may increase from 998 to 1,697.

“There are many more names we know that are not on the list. He has budgeted for 1,697 this year. So the 998 which we are all outraged about is not even the end. He hopes to get to 1967 in 2018,” Mr. Ablakwa said on Eyewitness News.

Vice President Alhaji Dr. Mahamadu Bawumia has said that government is committed in providing every constituency in Ghana one ambulance.
He said they have started the process to purchase 275 ambulances this year to bolster healthcare in the country.

Ashanti Regional Chairman of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), Bernard Antwi-Bosiako has revealed that some top five (5) NDC officials are guilty of receiving of double salaries while in office.

The opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) has ignited a strong reminder campaign in the north targeted at Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia to come out clear as to when the dams promised all villages in the Upper East, Upper West and Northern regions will be due for construction.

Dr. Bawumia, a major face of the 2016 election campaign for the New Patriotic Party (NPP), has remained a policy guarantor who has continued to give hope to the north, after the NPP recaptured power 16 months ago, that the dams will be delivered as promised before the 2016 polls.

But the NDC, unenthused about the reassurances the NPP government has given Ghanaians so far, claims the Vice President has been “hopelessly inconsistent” with time frame and figures relative to the promised dams.
