Yes, I must say one of the toughest jobs in the world today is taken on a job as a breakfast show host on radio. This is because thousands or millions of people look up to you for education or information and even entertainment.     The kind of information you put out early in the morning can completely ruin or uplift the spirit of your listeners. If the individual gets demoralised it will affect his or her well being which will automatically affect his/her productivity etc. so I am always careful of what I say. I pray about it. Life and death the Bible says is in the tongue.       The challenge doesn’t only end there. The real challenge is understanding the myriads of socio-political topics one has to deal with every 24 hours' the many documents you have to read and understand to enable you question professionals and politicians on.     In an era where news and information is readily available, it then requires that you have to be on top of the game to deal with whatever issues that comes up. Then there is the other of staying in competition in a game where we have the many champions still playing. It’s been tough but per the ratings I have beaten the competition.       I have not had a good sleep in the past 3 years knowing the task is tough and the competition unending. Today many of the major headlines on the various popular news websites and Newspapers are culled from Frontline - my show. My headache of hosting a breakfast show is how people unnecessarily tag me politically simply because a comment might have not gone well with one party followers or the other.       I believe I have brought extraordinary dexterity in the morning radio in the country with different segments, boldness in taken on politicians on and choice of songs plus the use of professionals and experts to discuss pertinent national matters.   Kwame Tutu Morning Show Host   Rainbow Radio 87.5Fm

The Member of Parliament for Abirem constituency Mr. John Osei Frimpong who is a member of the Energy Committee in Parliament has said, the MP for Adansi Asokwa KT Hammond, was of conviction that the AMERI stinks hence his call on the House to rescind the approval. He told Kwame Tutu on Rainbow Radio 87.5 that, the MP appearing before the committee said, AMERI acted in a way that was contrary to its proposal to the government for which reason he had seconded the motion for the agreement to be ratified two years ago.       KT Hammond he indicated told the committee the former administration made a number of misrepresentations to get the deal approved.   The boycott by the Minority at the committee’s review hearing he said will not affect them.   The Minority in Parliament has challenged the Majority to head to court if it believes the $510m AMERI Power deal signed in 2015 was fraudulent.     The opposition lawmakers said they will support moves to review the contract if their political opponents are able to produce documents that point to fraud.     The legislator said  the National Democratic Congress (NDC) lawmakers stated they did not want to be associated with processes to rescind the deal.     But we have the number to still review the deal, he said.

The Member of Parliament for Buem constituency, Daniel Kwasi Asiamah, has charged President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, to call his colleague MP for Assin Central constituency, Kennedy Agyapong to order.   He contends that  utterances and attacks by the MP, on state officials are unwarranted.   He said, the behaviour of his colleague who doubles as the chairman of the Communications Committee in Parliament, is becoming unbecoming.     He recounted how Mr. Kennedy Agyapong without any evidence, attacked the Electoral Commissioner, Madam Charlotte Osei and accused her of trading her body for her appointment.   He also recounted the attacks Mr. Agyapong mounted on the National Security Minister, Kan Dapaah and other individuals in the country.   He was responding to the allegations he made against the former CID boss, Mr. Bright Oduro that he was sponsoring land guards in the country. Ghanaians must be very careful of him especially the president because anytime, he [Agyapong] makes allegations against people; he says he does that in favour of His Excellency Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo. I want him to call him to order. He is not being fair to the people he is attacking, especially civil servants. He should be called to order, he stressed.   How can someone work for the country and be asked to proceed on leave three months to his retirement? ‘’I respect Kennedy so much but his behaviour is unfortunate and does not speak well of him as a legislator. He should always provide substantiated evidence when he alleges. I will ask Nana Addo to call him to order if he [Agyapong] is his best friend as he once said.    Mr Bright Oduro was appointed as CID boss in January 2017 at the rank of Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCOP) and was recently promoted to the rank of Commissioner of Police (COP). He was unexpectedly asked to proceed on leave last Friday, October 13, 2017, a few hours after the maverick Member of Parliament for Assin Central, Mr Kennedy Agyapong had reiterated a series of allegations on radio, accusing him of protecting and shielding criminals and land guards at Miotso in Greater Accra.     But he claims the entire allegations are force and an attempt to tarnish his reputation in the service over the years.

The Member of Parliament for Manso Adubia constituency, Mr. Yaw Frimpong Addo, has expressed his disappointment in the out gone CID boss, Mr. Bright Oduro over his media engagements following his dismissal.         The legislator speaking to Kwame Tutu on Rainbow Radio 87.5Fm said, the action taken by the ousted police officer is unfortunate and needless.       He told the host that the decision to ask him to proceed on leave is not political victimization as suggested by other individuals.   The former CID boss has expressed his displeasure at the way and manner he was ousted.       He fingered National Security Minister, Kan Dapaah and MP for Assin Central of being behind his dismissal.       Mr. Oduro was asked to proceed on leave this week but he has questioned the rationale behind the action taken by the police administration.   Mr Bright Oduro was appointed as CID boss in January 2017 at the rank of Deputy Commissioner of Police (DCOP) and was recently promoted to the rank of Commissioner of Police (COP).     He was unexpectedly asked to proceed on leave last Friday, October 13, 2017, a few hours after the maverick Member of Parliament for Assin Central, Mr Kennedy Agyapong had reiterated a series of allegations on radio, accusing him of protecting and shielding criminals and land guards at Miotso in Greater Accra.   But he claims the entire allegations are force and an attempt to tarnish his reputation in the service over the years. Commenting on the issue, Mr. Yaw Frimpong Addo said, the former CID boss could have resolved his concerns in the quiet instead of granting media interviews.       ‘’I was a bit disturbed when I heard his media interviews…Asking him to proceed on leave was the first time it has been done. I thought he would have kept quiet. If he should have protested on the quiet and allow some of us to take up the issues on his behalf, it would have been better,’’ he said.
