  • Foresight Africa: Implementing a New U.S.-Africa Policy -

    2013 ushered in the most significant change in the United States’ Africa policy since the passing of PEPFAR 10 years ago. The unveiling of investment-focused initiatives—Power Africa and Trade Africa—reflects not just a change in how the Obama administration views the continent, but also how foreign investors have prioritized it. But policy rarely achieves its objectives without equal attention to implementation. A number of implementation barriers—old regulations and new policies working at cross-purposes, and limited on-the-ground capacity—threaten to undermine America’s new approach to the continent in 2014. If 2013 was marked by change in U.S. strategy towards Africa, 2014 will be marked by the recognition that 90 percent of the success of that strategy is implementation.

  • NPA’s 10% reduction in Petroleum Prices – “Too Little” or “Too Late”? -

    NPA’s Arrogance or Economics?

    On the eve of the New Year, 2015, the National Petroleum Authority (NPA) announced a reduction in ex-pump prices of petroleum products by 10% across board. This was not without drama. Most of the headlines that followed the announcement pointed to price reduction under duress. A number of civil society organizations and political parties put pressure on NPA to reduce the prices due to reasons such as the oil price crush and relative stability in the value of the local Ghanaian currency. Some of the organizations threatened public demonstrations against NPA and the Government; a situation that was expected considering that petro-politics is a feature of petroleum pricing in most parts of the world.

  • NDC RIGGING MACHINERY IN MOTION …. as DI raises red flags over suspicious NHIS registration numbers -

    Public policy and governance think tank, the Danquah Institute has expressed grave concern about the Electoral Commission's decision to register all persons in the country who, simply, are in possession of identity cards issued by the National Health Insurance Authority.

    At a press conference organised by DI last week, a fellow of the institute, Mr. Boakye Agyarko, explained that “one of the objects of the National Health Insurance Authority” as captured on the NHIA’s website which states that “persons not resident in the country but who are on a visit to this country” can obtain NHIS cards is deeply worrying.

  • GHANA MUST WAKE UP, SHOUT FOR A NEW REGISTER AND SHAKE UP THE EC -

    FITCH Rating’s latest report on Ghana lays particular emphasis on the importance of Ghana’s democracy and stability to the country’s economic prospects. Whiles it gives a negative outlook based on how the economy is being run, Fitch makes the point that Ghana’s credit rating has not, however, fallen below ‘B’ because of the country’s “strong governance record and recent democratic history,” and that, this is “reflected in Ghana’s ability to attract foreign direct investment, which at 7% of GDP is well above that of Nigeria, Gabon, Zambia, Kenya and Angola.”

NPP-USA: The Supreme Court Has Moral Responsibility To Save Ghana

PDF Print E-mail

NPP-USA would like to alert donor countries and the international community that Ghana’s fledgling democracy is on a political cliff. The corrupt NDC and its dubious stooges disguised as electoral commission officials have once again arrested Ghana’s democracy with very devastative ramifications. The fraudulent orchestration by the NDC, Afari Gyan’s Electoral Commission, and a surrogate Israeli company, STL, to hijack the will of the Ghanaian people to steal the elections for the corrupt, incompetent and morally bankrupt John Dramani Mahama and NDC parliamentarians has set Ghana on the slippery route to political instability.

The NPP, for the sake of Ghana’s peace, is peacefully seeking redress at the Supreme Court. The NPP-USA would like to remind Ghanaians and the international community that the NDC and its antecedent P/NDC, a party nurtured in the blood of innocent Ghanaians and with high penchant for authoritarianism and violence, lacks democratic credibility and trust with Ghanaians.

In the 2012 elections, The NDC as usual used false propaganda, bribery, intimidation, violence, and with naked conniving of Afari Gyan’s Electoral Commission, stole the 2012 elections for the NDC.  The well-orchestrated scheme to steal the 2012 election first manifested itself in Nil Lamptey Vaderpuye’s use of hoodlums who violently prevented NPP members from registering at Odododiodoo, a constituency in Accra and also assaulted Ms. Ursula Owusu in the full glare of Ghana’s security personnel. During the elections, the NDC hooligans stole ballot boxes   and burned ballot papers in NPP strongholds. A member of NPP-USA who chanced on witnessing NDC hooligans thumb printing ballot papers, stuffing ballot boxes and transporting the boxes from a house in Dzowulu, a suburb of Accra, in an ambulance was arrested and put in BNI cells only to be released after the election.

Despite the initial agreement that “No verification no vote”, John Mahama, a caretaker president who is supposed to respect the laws of the land, in an impudent violation of this clause ordered the discredited Electoral Commission to allow people to vote even without verification. Ironically the no verification no vote restriction was fully implemented in the NPP strong holds but was lax in NDC strong holds where imported foreigners and underage children voted without verification several times. The NPP has uncovered situations in NDC strong holds where the number of voters exceeded the number of actual registered voters. The NPP, the doyen of Ghana’s democracy, has sought redress in the Supreme Court but the NDC has resorted to intimidation and violence by ordering its Special forces to attack our offices and homes where smart and dedicated students were simply collating evidences of electoral fraud.  NPP-USA has in its possession a recording of the savage display of brutal force reminiscent of the dark days of Ghana’s military dictatorship, when John Mahama’s special forces invaded NPP’s collating office. They also ransacked the office of Gloria Akufo, a member of NPP’s legal team and took away computers that they childishly presumed would intimidate us and obtain sensitive information on the court case.

All the opposition parties have condemned the massaged and stolen electoral result.  The National Democratic Party, an offspring of the ruling NDC and headed by a co founder of the NDC, Nana Konadu Agyeman Rawlings has also rejected the results and declared the electoral results as a “419” fraud on the people of Ghana. Dr. Paa Kwesi Ndoum and the Progressive Peoples Party have also rejected the results and called for wider electoral reforms to save Ghana’s nascent democracy. Samia Nkrumah and the CPP rejected the results in the Jomoro constituency and noted the influx of Ivorians voting for the NDC candidate. Jerry Rawlings, the founder of NDC, also acknowledged to the African Union Chairman, NPP’s legitimate right to seek redress at the Supreme Court.

The justices of our supreme court owe allegiance to Ghana and its people not individuals or groups of people. We know the NDC would intimidate and even attempt to bribe the Justices of the Supreme Court to influence their decision because that is the only thing they know, but our honorable justices must remember that their reputation, integrity, Ghana’s peace and its enduring democracy are at stake.

We advise the Justices to learn from the Egyptian case where the military and Justices, contrary to expectation, sided with the will of the people. The Justices of the Supreme Court must be reminded that the tenets of the “old order” when the NDC used violence, brutalities, and bribery to have its way are no longer tenable. A historic epoch has been reached in Ghanaian politics where the will and dignity of the ordinary people supersede the parochial desires of the corrupt and violent NDC leadership.

This historic opportunity must be seized perpetually and diligently by the honorable men and women of our Supreme Court to institutionalize incorrigible institutions, freedom and justice, respect for human rights, probity and accountability and equal opportunities for all, irrespective of our tribal, religious, gender and social differences. Truly the voice of the people rings louder than the forces of destruction and intimidation and the peoples voice must be heard. We are confident the Justices of the Supreme Court cannot afford the luxury of bequeathing to the next generation and those yet unborn, the legacy of corruption, bribery, political injustices, electoral frauds that are recipes for African civil wars to a country which is on its way to becoming a beacon of hope for Africa. But if they fail and let this historic window of opportunity slip by without any conscientious efforts to uphold the will of the Ghanaian people and restore and sustain the dignity of Ghana’s democracy, they would surely be condemned for derailing our democracy and allowing Ghana to slip into political chaos.

We are confident they will not fail peace-loving Ghanaians and will bequeath to the next generation a free, just and stable Ghana devoid of tribulations. The destiny of Ghana depends on the courage, wisdom, independence and impartiality of the Justices of the Supreme Court of Ghana whose decision on this crucial historic case would have ramifications for mother Ghana’s democracy and peace from now to eternity. NPP-USA, Public Relations Committee.
