The National Democratic Congress (NDC) has issued out a strong warning to the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) to desist ‘deliberately’ instigating attacks on appointees under the Mahama-led government.

    The caution follows the NPP’s commencement of legal processes to prosecute former COCOBOD boss Stephen Opuni Mensah and businessman Alhaji Seidu Agongo over a supposed fraudulent fertilizer supply contract worth GHc43,120,000.

    The two were dragged to court by the Attorney General and charged with 27 counts of causing financial loss to the state.

    Members of the NDC however believe it is a fixed agenda by the Akufo-Addo-led government to sanction officials of the NDC as a way of shifting attention from the several corrupt acts perpetrated by functionaries of the sitting government.

    They cited a number of instances including the award of 11 contracts to a sister-in-law of the Chief Executive Officer of the National Lottery Authority, Kofi Osei Ameyaw in a day as well as the sale of some 1.8million litres of crude oil at a discount that has allegedly led to a GHS23million revenue loss to the state.

    Expressing disappointment, the NDC in a statement said they “never thought that such crudeness and blatant disregard for the rights of our members would be the weapons of choice in this political vendetta.”

    For them, the countless cases of harassment, intimidation, lawlessness and abuse of processes “suffered by members under the guise of investigations into alleged wrongdoing by various state bodies” is enough proof that the NPP is deliberately orchestrating ‘dubious’ ways to wrongfully punish their members.

  • Some disgruntled customers of ASN-Financial Services Limited (ASN-FSL), a licenced Finance House, are unable to access their investments with the indigenous institution – a situation further... Some disgruntled customers of ASN-Financial Services Limited (ASN-FSL), a licenced Finance House, are unable to access their investments with the indigenous institution – a situation further compounded by lack of information from the institution or the central bank.

    “We had a meeting in March last year, when they [ASN-FSL] promised paying us this year. So far, I have been to their offices but they don’t tell us anything. We can’t even see and talk to any of the managers. It’s just the receptionists we meet, and they just tell us stories all the time.

    “In December, I needed money badly to take care of some pressing needs; but I couldn’t access some of my GH?18,000 with the company,” Auntie Iris, a customer of the company, told the B&FT.

    Dr. Kobby Mensah, a marketing lecturer at the University of Ghana Business School and a customer of ASN-FSL, is also struggling to recoup his GH¢15,000 invested in the company’s real-estate product.

    He tells B&FT that: “I am still waiting to receive my cash. I have made attempts to speak with managers to no avail. We heard last year that there was an investor, but we do not know what has become of that as the situation is the same. The central bank must come in to ensure the proper thing is done”.

    Other customers of the beleaguered institution have also informed B&FT about the difficulty in retrieving their cash.

    B&FT checks with the Banking Supervision Department of Bank of Ghana on Wednesday, March 21, 2018 about the status of the company’s turnaround strategy submitted to the central bank, the news of an investor who was expected last year, and what is the BoG doing to resolve the issues with ASN-FSL are all questions yet to be answered.

    There are 35 universal banks in the country and more than 429 licenced microfinance institutions offering various financial products to the public.

    There are about 70 Non-Bank Financial Institutions (NBFs). These is made up of 24 Finance Houses; 2 remittance companies; 3 Credit Reference Bureaus; 37 Savings and Loans companies; 2 leasing companies; and 3 finance and leasing companies.

    The ASN-FSL challenges

    ASN Financial Services Limited, a licenced Finance House, has been experiencing challenges in its operations over the past few years.

    Ghana Football Association (GFA) president, Kwasi Nyantakyi says it is unfair to compare the domestic league to the English Premier League (EPL).

    The FA chief said in a press briefing on Tuesday that an attempt to do so could be likened to comparing light and darkness taking into account how far the Premier League has come.

    Notwithstanding the sharp contrast between the two leagues, Nyantakyi indicated that his outfit has rolled out innovations to ensure the local league assumes a shift in the coming seasons.

    “…We shouldn’t compare our league to the EPL; it’s like comparing Bongo and Bill Gates. But we will get there. We are putting more measures in place to improve our league.

    “I am in talks with the Ministry to ensure clubs who play in Africa get some financial support from government. The introduction of a media coordinating centre, fast track of our judicial system and match report are all measures to better our league.”

    The EPL is considered as the best and most competitive on the globe currently.

  • Information available to Daily Guide indicates that fraudsters have adopted a new strategy for defrauding unsuspecting people of huge sums of money under the pretext of footing medical bills of... Information available to Daily Guide indicates that fraudsters have adopted a new strategy for defrauding unsuspecting people of huge sums of money under the pretext of footing medical bills of their wards in school.

    The criminals call parents, especially those whose wards are in Senior High Schools (SHS), via cell phone to inform them that their ward is seriously ill and has been rushed to a particular hospital for immediate treatment so they have to send an amount of money through mobile money transfer to pay for emergency medical expenses.

    Parents, out of fear and eager to save the life of their children, dole out the money to the scammers before contacting the school authorities or rush to the school only to find out that nothing of the sort has happened.

    Many people had fallen victim to the new modus of fraud which is gaining grounds across the country.

    A victim told DAILY GUIDE that “I was at home when I received a distress call from a strange number informing me that my child is seriously sick and has been rushed to a hospital. The caller mentioned my son’s full name and further told me that my child is on oxygen and they need some money to pay for more oxygen and buy some drugs else he might not make it.

    “The caller who introduced himself as a teacher of the school said the hospital is demanding GH?5,000 deposit before giving him full treatment. I don’t have that amount immediately but mobilised some GH?3,000 and sent it to the person before rushing to the school the next day.

    “I got there and shockingly, my son was strong and healthy. I enquired only to be told that nobody called me from the school and that it was a new form of scam.”

    Another victim narrated his ordeal that: “The caller mentioned my name and that of my child before introducing himself as a teacher in my daughter’s school at Keta in the Volta Region.”

    “He frightened me that my daughter needs urgent surgery after collapsing in the dormitory and was rushed to the hospital. They asked of GH?2, 000 but I got GH?1,800 and sent it to them. I called the head teacher the next morning only to be told it was not true. I tried several times to call the number and it was not going through. The police must act immediately to deal with this people.”

    He advised parents to ensure they have the contact numbers of their ward’s school authorities and contact them in case of any of such information before sending money in case it is needed.

    The Right to Information Bill has finally been laid before Parliament by the Deputy Attorney General Joseph Kpemka Dindiok.

    President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo had announced while addressing the March 6 Independence Day parade that the Bill will be laid and passed before the lawmaking body rises.

    It is, however, unlikely that the bill will be passed before the House rises today as promised by the President.

    According to Starr FM’s Parliamentary Correspondent, Ibrahim Alhassan, the bill has been referred to the Constitutional, Legal and Parliamentary Affairs Committee and the Communications committee of Parliament.

    This development comes after Cabinet on Thursday approved the bill paving the way for it to be laid before the lawmakers.

    Government came under massive pressure to get the bill laid following fears that the government was deliberately delaying the process.

    It has been 22 years since the first Right to Information RTI Bill was drafted under the auspices of the Institute of Economic Affairs, IEA.

    Also, it is 16 years since the Executive arm of government in 2002 drafted the first RTI Bill.

    The draft Executive Bill was subsequently reviewed in 2003, 2005 and 2007 but was never laid in Parliament until February 5, 2010.

    The Minority Leader, Haruna Iddrisu, however, raised procedural issues and breach of the constitution given that the bill was laid without gazetting.

    But his position was dismissed by the majority leader Osei Kyei Mensah-Bonsu who argued that if the two committees determine that the bill is of urgent nature then there will be no requirement for a gazette.
