Ghanaian Hiplife artiste, Trigmatic has stated without mincing words that he stands with the Founder and Leader of the International Christ Gospel Church (ICGC), Pastor Mensa Otabil in the misappropriation of the Ghc610 million taxpayers money by board members of Capital bank chaired by the man of God.
The rapper who was a guest on GhOne TV’s “CelebrityFanZone” show indicated that once Pastor Mensa Otabil hasn’t been fished out by any investigative body as to whether he was directly or indirectly involved in the misappropriation of the money granted to Capital bank by the Central Bank, there is no way he’s going to join the masses to call for his head.
Ghanaian Hiplife artiste, Belinda Nana Akua Amoah aka Mzbel has stated that she is very disappointed in the President of the Republic, Nana Akufo-Addo as he has failed to honour the promises he made to Ghanaians during the 2016 elections campaign.
Mzbel who was abandoned by her own NDC folks when she was involved in an accident a few months ago described President Akufo-Addo as a misleading president who has failed to deliver since he assumed the highest office of the land.
The President, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, has sacked Energy Minister Boakye Agyarko with immediate effect.
A statement from the Presidency, signed by Director of Communications Eugene Arhin, announced the news of the President’s decision.
Ghanaian have not officially been in ‘dumsor’ since 2016 but prolonged pockets of lights out occur at anytime anyway.
However, according to Energy Minister Boakye Agyarko, Ghanaians can say goodbye to dumsor officially because it would never happen again under the NPP’s watch.
After the Energy Minister, Boakye Agyarko, revealed at a public forum that the Electricity Company of Ghana’s balance sheet is bad because they have not been collecting its debts from entities such as the US Embassy to Ghana and MTN, the Embassy responded that it has never received any bill from ECG within the past two years.
In a series of tweets Wednesday, the Embassy said despite repeated enquiries, they have not been receiving bills from ECG.
In a recent time of the new NPP government, some part of Ghana has experienced an intermittent power supply and accordingly, some people have bitterly complained about the fear of the possible return of Dumsor. An energy supply canker during the infamous Mahama era that the NPP promised to fix when given the mandate.
Good news from myjoyonline.com is that Energy Minister Boakye Agyarko has announced the end of the “intermittent power outages”, following a successful new deal the government has reached with Ivory Coast to increase its power supply to Ghana despite the US$60 million debt accrued by the country.
Pressure group OccupyGhana has called on the police to investigate the disgraceful allegations of bribery currently flying around Parliament involving the confirmation process of Energy Minister Boakye Agyarko.
In a statement, the group calls for an “independent Police investigation into the damning allegations and a no-holds-barred criminal prosecution of anyone found to be on the wrong side of Ghanaian law in this scandalous development.”
Member of Parliament for North Tongu and former Deputy Minister of Education, Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa, has backed up the claims of bribery raised by Mahama Ayariga against Energy Minister Boakye Agyarko.
Mahama Ayariga claimed last week that the then minister designate Agyarko had paid a bribe of Ghc 3,000 each to minority MP’s to speed through his vetting process.
Chairman of the vetting committee, Joseph Osei Owusu has disclosed to Joy Fm that, Mahama Ayariga’s bribery allegation against Boakye Agyarko was intentionally purported.

Amidst all the controversies and the protestations by the Minority in parliament against 5 Designated Ministers not to be approved, the house with NPP’s resounding majority has approved all vetted 13 nominees (That includes Yaw Osafo-Marfo and Boakye Agyarko)
News gathered is that the majority used its overwhelming numerical strength to pass the motion for the nominees to be approved because Nana Addo is on a schedule to travel to Addis Ababa for an AU summit and the concerns of the Minority is delaying the process which is subsequently distorting the President’s protocol schedules.
As GhanaCelebrities.com reported, Boakye Agyarko and Yaw Osafo-Marfo’s bid to be Ministers of State appears to be in limbo.
Allegations of bribery are being levelled against the NPP’s top hierarchy in Parliament, allegedly attempting to woo the Minority Members on the vetting committee to successfully pass Boakye Agyarko as Energy Minister.
