A group calling itself Concerned Citizens of Obomeng Kwahu has accused the Obohene, Nana Yeboah Afari Obaogyan II, of allegedly selling stool lands indiscriminately. The group in a statement said, ‘’We recognize him as our chief and accord him the respect due him customarily as we give to every chief within the Kwahu Traditional area, however, a situation where lands which are known to belong to the people of Obomeng both at Obomeng and Nkawkaw-Amanfrom are sold by Obohene is unacceptable. It is noted with concern that several areas of lands belonging to the people of Obomeng both at Obomeng and Nkawkaw-Amanfrom have all been sold by Obohene with impunity without recourse to the chief of Obomeng. Sadly, all attempts by the Late Krontihene of Obomeng and the sitting chief to get Obohene to desist from this uncustomary act have proved futile.’’ They have therefore appealed to the security agencies, MPs in the area, the president and other individuals who have the area at heart to take note of the following: ◈ That we want to state emphatically that we the people of Obomeng-Kwahu are not happy about this indiscriminate sale of Obomeng Stool lands by Obohene. ◈ That Obomeng-Kwahu is a sovereign town which has its own number of towns and villages which constitute Obomeng-Kwahu Stool Land over which Obohene customarily and legally exercises no jurisdiction. ◈ That we are giving Obohene seven (7) days from today to desist from the sale of any part of Obomeng Stool lands and also to revert the ones already sold to Obomenghene i.e. the lands at Obomeng and Nkawkaw-Amanfrom, with immediate effect. ◈ That we want Obohene to render an unqualified apology to Obomenghene, the people of Obomeng-Kwahu particularly to the members of the Obomeng SDA Church and the affected families for the sale of our lands and the destruction of those tombs. ◈ That if Obohene fail to adhere strictly to these directive, we the people of Obomeng and our allies will advise ourselves accordingly.

It is noted with concern that several areas of lands belonging to the people of Obomeng both at Obomeng and Nkawkaw-Amanfrom have all been sold by Obohene with impunity without recourse to the chief of Obomeng. Sadly, all attempts by the Late Krontihene of Obomeng and the sitting chief to get Obohene to desist from this uncustomary act have proved futile. On the 13th day of September, 2017, Obohene sadly sold the Obomeng SDA church section of the Obomeng public cemetery to a private developer for the construction of a fuel station. Meanwhile, the SDA church had earlier in about two weeks buried bodies at the said location but strangle as we speak, grading of the land for the commencement of the construction of the fuel station is underway which has caused the destruction, exhumation and the exposure of the content of some tombs with its attendant health implications. That Obohene has take the chiefs and people of Obomeng-Kwahu and our agents for granted for far too long and it is time we stake a claim to what belong to us.

Founder and leader of the Lamb Apostolic Ministry, Prophet Samuel A. Offei has taken a swipe at leaders and Ghanaians for not being spiritually inclined. Prophet Offei in an interview with said, the Atomic Madina gas explosion formed part of prophecies God gave him on December 31st, 2016 but his warnings and directions were ignored He asserted that, premature deaths especially among the youth through suicides, accidents, explosions among others were revealed to him but Ghanaians did not take the revelations serious. ‘’I was directed to ask Ghanaians to pray against such occurrences however, we do not take spiritual matters serious in this country. Some associate these disasters to human errors but the truth is that, these disasters have spiritual connections and the way to revoke them is to pray.’’ According to him, he personally wrote to the Gender Minister, Otiko Afisa Djaba on one of his revelations requesting for support to host a nationwide prayer campaign. However, he was not allowed to see the Minister. The whole ten regions of Ghana he stated must undergo serious prayers and so I appealed for support but I was ignored. If they had allowed us to organize the prayers, we would not have witnessed these disasters. The prophet said, Ghana is lacking behind because our leaders are not godly and have no fear for the Supreme Being. The premature deaths he emphasized have not ended and will continue till the end of year. ‘’I can see a town in the spiritual real where some evil men are orchestrating a number of accidents and deaths for people. I can see a big pot of blood being stirred and when I asked God the meaning, he told me that, more disasters are going to occur and a lot of people will die and the only way we can reverse it is to pray against them. ‘’Spiritually we are lacking because of our weakness. Our leaders do not trust in God and that has affected our progress as a country. Spiritually we are weak and so as men of God, we must unite our front and pray for the nation so we progress.’’ He said, just as stubbornness is one of the traits of human beings and has negative effects on us, our leaders are stubborn and are difficult when it comes to spiritual issues. He said a leader who is stubborn and fails to hear the voice of God through his prophets are led astray and falls for anything canal.

Former presidential staffer under former President John Dramani Mahama, Dr. Clement Apaak says either the Vice President, Alhaji Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia or former rector of GIMPA, Prof. Stephen Adei, are not being truthful to Ghanaians over the number of convoy used by the second gentleman of the land. Prof. Adei had vowed to stage a one-man demonstration against the number of convoy used by the Vice President. The professor had said, the vice was accompanied by “16 four-wheel drivers” during a recent visit to the Central Region. However, the Vice President in a statement denied the claims. The statement said, his team uses the maximum of seven vehicles for trips outside the capital Accra. Dr Bawumia noted he used seven vehicles which included the one used by leading police team, security detail, protocol, the media team and an ambulance. But responding to the issue, the MP for Builsa South said, it’s either the vice or the professor is being untruthful. He said, if the vice is not using the number of vehicles as alleged by the professor, then he has not being fair to himself and Ghanaians because he lied, and could be an example of some of the allegations he made against the Mahama administration without basis, but if it is also true that, the professor was truthful with his claims, then he [Bawumia] has not being fair to Ghanaians.’’ Dr. Apaak said, professor is very sympathetic to the NPP, prayed and campaigned for Nana Addo to rule the country. And so, if they have been given the opportunity to govern and they are exhibiting extreme incompetence, he [Adei] is only expresing his disappointment. The legislator further indicated that, there is no standard for the number of convoy that follows the vice and minimum should be 4 with maximum not being more than seven. He said, if the professor was able to count and identify 17 vehicles, then it was excessive. He stressed, the excessive use of the convoy will have a serious effect on our resources because the tax payers money would be used to fuel these vehicles.

The Member of Parliament (MP) for Builsa South, Dr. Clement Apaak has challenged former rector of the Ghana Institute of Management and Public Administration (GIMPA), Professor Stephen Adei, to criticize the Nana Addo led administration over his family and friends style of appointments. Speaking in an interview with Nyankonton Mu Nsem on Rainbow Radio 87.5Fm, Dr. Clement Apaak who was a former presidential staffer under Mr. Mahama said, the former rector lambasted the NDC leader for practicing what he termed as a family and friends government. Former President John Dramani Maham was in 2016 swiped by Prof. Adei for practicing nepotism. The professor alleged that, indicated in 2016 that, per his research findings one out of every four of the President’s appointments came from his area of origin. Speaking at Prempeh Colleges’ Pearson Osae lectures,Prof Adei said in that year, “One of the things going on which is totally unacceptable is about why one out of every four public sector appointment comes from the President’s area of origin. That is totally unacceptable because we are a unified country, we are a country whereby if you take any major group, whether Gas, Ashantis or Ewes you can form a cabinet from it….” Recounting these statements by Prof. Adei, Dr. Apaak wondered why he has failed to criticize the current president for appointing his friends and family members like he did to Mr. Mahama. According to him, the failure of the latter sparks hypocrisy and bias. Professor Adei must be bold and criticize the current administration over nepotism. He accused Mahama of appointing his own people but today, he [Nana Addo] is appointing his family and friends including in-laws among others. Has he [Adei] not seen that?

Businessman Alfred Agbesi Woyome failed to show up at the Supreme Court for the second leg of his oral examination in relation to his Ghc 47.2 million debt to the state. His counsel , Mr Osofo Buabeng, told the Supreme Court that, Woyome was absent because he was sick. Counsel, therefore, tendered in a medical form explaining that his client had been granted a two week excuse duty by the Accra Regional Hospital [Ridge]. Meanwhile, lawyers for the businessman has filed two applications challenging the legality of the valuation of the businessman's properties and also for the court to put the oral examination on hold. In his submission, Mr Buabeng argued that the A-G failed to seek the permission of the court in renewing the valuation execution order, which was issued on January 9, 2015, as required by law. Rather, he said, the A-G renewed the order on January 6, 2016 without permission from the court. A Deputy A-G, Mr Godfred Dame, rejected the argument of Mr Buabeng. According to him, the January 9, 2015 order did not expire, but rather the A-G decided to go for another order on January 6, 2016. The court, presided over by Mr Justice Anthony A Benin, will rule on the businessman's application on Friday, October 20, 2017. Source:GraphicOnline

They insist they want to serve the military and will do no other jobs.

The recruits said some of their colleagues have joined the police service however, some of them have been rejected and the situation is having serious physiological effects on them. They also expressed disappointment in parliament, the Speaker and the presidency for failing to react to their petition presented on the matter.
