Morning show host for Frontline on Rainbow Radio 87.5Fm, Kwame Tutu, has lambasted persons slamming budding actress and model Moesha Buodong over her recent blunt interview she granted to CNN’s Christiane Amanpour. The actress has sparked controversy over her reason to date married men in order to meet her basic needs due to what she described as harsh economic conditions in Ghana. Moesha in the interview on the topic ‘’When being a mistress is a financial decision”, said “Ghana our economy is such that you just need someone to take care of you because you can't make enough money as a woman here," she said. "When you want to get an apartment, in Ghana you pay two years in advance and I just started working, where will I get the money.’’ The interviewer in seeking for clarification on whether the actress was trading sex for survival got this response: ”he can afford to take care of you. He takes care of me, my financial stuff, my apartment, my car, my rent, everything". “He expects me to be loyal and just to date him only and give him sex when he wants. You can't say no. You have to give him what he wants otherwise he is going to think you are cheating on him, “she added. Her interview has incurred the wrath of Ghanaians on her with some questioning why she generalized the issue. However commenting on the issue, outspoken radio host, Kwame Tutu took Ghanaians to the cleaners describing them as hypocrites. He believes the outburst was not justified because we have cheered her [Moesha] and other similar girls on with their choice of lifestyle. He quizzed, ‘’Didn’t we see some of these mentally unstable girls reducing womanhood to the price of salt through their social media activities posting naked photos and videos? Do we mean we didn't know they (she) is a prostitute forcing her ideals on society?’’ In his view, ‘’It's useless, needless, unproductive, waste of priceless time to give attention to such people in my opinion,,’ but ‘’I will however talk about her recent outburst on CNN. I hold divergent views on this subject. First, the outrage being expressed by holier than thou folks indicates and exposes the dumbfounding hypocritical nature of the Ghanaian. That one which is in the central part of our DNA,’’ he stated in a write up he has titled ‘’A NATION OF HYPOCRITES; GOD SHALL PUNISH US ALL.’’ Read Below his full write up A NATION OF HYPOCRITES. GOD SHALL PUNISH US ALL. My friends here I hope have noticed one thing about my social media commentaries. I don't talk about individuals especially social deviants like this Buodong girl. It's useless, needless, unproductive, waste of priceless time to give attention to such people in my opinion. I will however talk about her recent outburst on CNN. I hold divergent views on this subject. First, the outrage being expressed by holier than thou folks indicates and exposes the dumbfounding hypocritical nature of the Ghanaian. That one which is in the central part of our DNA. Didn't we see some of these mentally unstable girls reducing womanhood to the price of salt through their social media activities posting naked photos and videos? Do we mean we didn't know they (she) is a prostitute forcing her ideals on society? How many of us (men /women) waged a war against such foolish activities? Many of us here urged her (them) on by being silent or comments about it. Many of us went far to say it's their (her) right to choose any life style. Why must you be angered when she has given you international notoriety? Secondly, isn’t her comment a fact in our society that many women, in my estimation 95% of today's young lady offer quid pro quo services? It may not be to only married men but that's what it is. She spoke the bare fact. How many women reading me here can raise their hands to say they have been involved with a man for 6 months without making a demand to fix her hair, nails, buy a cloth , for TnT, accommodation, to buy drugs for one parent or something? I respect women, especially my sisters selling in the sun at the traffic lights, Makola, Kantamanto, Agbobloshie, Kumasi central market etc. However the demands from Ghanaian women are incessant and insane. Those of you who link up on social media can any woman here say she ever paid the bills of the first time you went on a date? So what's the point to be angry? A proverb in my Asante native language literally says " s3 wo wo awo b)ne a, woti wotw3 nka. To wit, ' if you give birth to a bad child you smell the scent of your vagina '. Simply put, we have nurtured bad principles, attitudes, accept poor morals, mediocrity etc and reaping the benefits thereof. Maadwo

The Ashanti Regional Office of the Food and Drugs Authority (FDA), has referred 21 chemical shops [over the counter] to the Pharmacy Council for sanctions after they were found to have stocked high dosage of Tramadol tablets and were dispensing it to the public in violation of the FDA law. The chemical shops [over the counter] are not permitted by law to sell Tramadol while Pharmacies that are authorised are to dispense strictly on a doctor’s prescription. The FDA has registered only the 50mg and 100mg of the Tramadol tablets but during a market surveillance, it was found out that as high as 120mg and 225mg were on the shelves of some of the chemical shops. The Ashanti Regional Head of the Food and Drugs Authority, Mrs Nora Narkie Terlarbie, made this known at a press briefing on Thursday. She explained about 5,000 very high dosage of Tramadol tablets have since been seized from the said chemical shops, many of which are located near Senior High Schools (SHS) in the Ashanti Region. Reports have suggested the youth have been abusing the drug which is easily obtained from over the counter shops. The FDA after meting out initial punitive measures to the shops, has referred them to the Pharmacy Council for investigations and possible prosecution as part of measures to halt the increasing abuse of the Tramadol drug by the youth especially those in senior high schools.

Corporate Affairs Manager for the Ghana Integrity Initiative (GII), Michael Boadi, has urged men of God and Islamic clerics to use their pulpits and mosques to help in the fight against corruption. The fight against corruption he told Nyankonton Mu Nsem on Rainbow Radio 87.5Fm, is a collective one hence the need for religious leaders to add their voice and speak to their followers to understand the need to eschew all forms of corruption. He also admonished corrupt individuals to desist from the act and asked anti-corruption agencies not to give up the fight on corruption. He was reacting to the call by President Nana Akufo-Addo on civil society groups to help him fight corruption. Akufo-Addo made this plea while meeting with members of the National Anti-Corruption Coalition at the Jubilee House on Tuesday. Nana Addo said his fight for corruption will be effective if there's an holistic approach from all government institutions. “[Corruption] is a national concern to all of us. Not only about the reality but also the perception about the fight against corruption because in many ways, the perception is as significant as the reality. We are working in these areas and [want] your input as to how best authorities can forge their weapons to fight against corruption", he pleaded. Mr. Michael Boadi described the call as a great one and urged institutions in the country to also world effectively to ensure that persons who are found culpable of corrupt offences are punished for their crimes.

A lecturer at the Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology (KNUST), Mohammed Abass, has underscored the need for Ghana to adopt a long term development plan. The plan he noted should be premised on the challenges confronting the nation and be given a parliamentary approval so it would be binding on any government Speaking to Nyankonton Mu Nsem on Rainbow Radio 87.5Fm, the political scientist said, because we currently do not have such a blue print, every government that comes into office tries to draft a plan to enable them achieve their goals. He was reacting to the launch of government’s 7-year Co-ordinated Programme of Economic and Social Development Policies. The launch was done by the president on Wednesday, 11th April, 2018, at the Accra International Conference Centre. The President stated that this vision is informed by the need to establish a strong economy, that creates opportunities, inspires people to start businesses, stimulates expansion of existing businesses, and, ultimately, leads to the creation of jobs, increased economic growth and higher incomes. Additionally, the President stated that the industrial policy, under the Co-ordinated Programme of Economic and Social Development Policies, will provide direction to enhance the operational capacity of existing firms, and to facilitate small business incubation as a way to promote the Government’s “One District, One Factory” initiative. “The industrial policy is to be supported by targeted provision of infrastructure to eliminate critical bottlenecks in the areas of roads, rail, aviation, water, sanitation, and energy, and distribute infrastructure fairly and comprehensively across the country,” he said. Government’s social policy regime, President Akufo-Addo explained, is to invest in people, by improving access and ensuring the provision of quality education, healthcare, and affordable housing. Commenting on it, Mohammed Abass stressed that, the policy is a good one and that is how it should be but emphasized the need for the current administration to do their best and get the nation a development plan that will bind every government before exiting office. ''Without the national development plan, the nation will lose a lot of resources because every administration would want to draft their own development plan''.

Parliament has approved $50 million for the completion of the remaining works at the University of Ghana Medical Centre (UGMC). According to the Minister of Health, Mr Kwaku Agyemang-Manu, although the centre looked complete from the outside, there was much more work to be done to make it fully functional. Addressing a news conference to commemorate this year’s World Health Day in Accra on Wednesday, he cited, as an example, the absence of a back-up generating set as a major obstacle to the opening of the facility. He explained that the MRI and imaging equipment could not be operated on the national grid because of possible fluctuations. “There are certain little things but which are very necessary that have to be done and so why the rush?” he asked. Legon Medical Centre There has been public outcry as to why the multi-million dollar facility remains dormant, although the centre appears to be completed. The first phase of the 597-bed capacity hospital, initiated in 2012, was inaugurated by former President John Dramani Mahama in 2016. The super-tertiary or quarternary facility, which is an extension of tertiary care in reference to advanced levels of medicine, can rival any world-class hospital. It has about eight huge blocks, which house an emergency centre, an outpatient and administration block, a women and children’s centre, a medical training and simulation centre, among others. Operational The first phase of the UGMC, which was expected to be fully operational by July 2017, houses different specialised centres, such as emergency, imaging, operating theatres and laboratories. The project was funded with a loan facility from Israel, with counterpart funding by the Ghana government. The project is expected to have a phase two to add 350 beds to the facility. The second phase will provide specialist facilities, including heart and cancer treatment and rehabilitation centres and a hostel for families of patients. Reason for the delay Mr Agyemang-Manu stated that those who were questioning the delay in opening the centre might not know what was actually on the ground “We are doing no good with this issue; you can go and see things for yourself. It is not completed or ready to operate now,” he told the doubting Thomases. Turning his attention to those who insisted the project had been completed, he said: “I am the minister and I want to tell Ghanaians that the facility is not complete. We operate it at our own disadvantage.” Management controversy Making reference to the managerial controversy that had embroiled the centre, the minister said a meeting among stakeholders would be convened today to iron out the differences. He said the management system which was agreed on at the start of the project was a cause for worry and that had informed the renegotiation by the stakeholders. However, he expressed the hope that “something close to finality” would be decided mutually at the meeting. Mr Agyemang-Manu assured Ghanaians that the government was committed to providing quality a healthcare system and infrastructure and, therefore, would not compromise any opportunity to do that. “We will facilitate the taking of the best decisions under this circumstance to boost healthcare delivery,” he said. Visit to facility A visit by the Daily Graphic to the facility last Monday showed that the edifice, constructed at a cost of $217 million, was still under lock and key. The site where the hospital is located was serene and the only noise one could hear was the cawing of crows hovering around the buildings. During the visit, it was observed that the facility, guarded by security personnel from the University of Ghana, had maintained a well-manicured artificial carpet grass, well kept flowers and beautiful lanes. According to sources close to the hospital, there had been many high-level activities, including meetings and the movement of heavy equipment into the facility. In November 2017, the Public Relations Officer (PRO) of the Ministry of Health (MoH) indicated that the ministry was carrying out due diligence on the facility and how it would be managed.
