HOW MAHAMA GIFTED $180 BILLION ‒ 75% OF GHANA’S BAUXITE ‒ TO HIS BROTHER IBRAHIM Featured

By NANA YAW DWAMENA September 16, 2019 266388 44614 comments

The New Patriotic Party has slammed the opposition National Democratic Congress for double standards after the NDC accused the governing party of running a “family and friends” government.

The NPP recalled how President John Mahama, on the eve of leaving office, signed off 75 per cent of Ghana’s bauxite to his younger brother Ibrahim.

Addressing the press last week, the general secretary of the NPP, John Boadu, disclosed that Ibrahim Mahama’s Exton Cubic Group carried out, according to the company’s own report, a “well-defined systematic exploration drilling over the entire Nyinahin Bauxite ore deposit and determined that good grade bauxite exists on Hills 1, 2, 3, 6A, 6B, 7 and 9”.

Mr Boadu said the President’s brother planned to build a refinery, saying that “assuming Exton Cubic went ahead to build a refinery, John Mahama’s brother would have been entitled to Ghana’s resources valued at US$180 billion of refined bauxite (alumina), not even aluminium”.

NDC agenda

Mr Boadu said last week’s hurriedly arranged NDC press conference, organised in reaction to the President’s speech on corruption at the national conference of the Ghana Bar Association, is a sign of the party’s modus operandi in the lead-up to the 2020 elections.

The NDC is struggling to woo Ghanaians and persuade them to return it to power after leaving the economy in tatters.


“We very well might have witnessed in the timing of the two speeches the hand of God,” Mr Boadu said.

“I believe that God’s love for Ghana allowed us this moment to be able to do a side-by-side comparison of a serious speech that has already changed Ghana, and a content-free, values-free, ad hominem flight of bombast that threatens to undo all the gains we have made in the effort to become a law-abiding country,” he said.

Ghanaians best judges

Mr Boadu urged Ghanaians to examine the positions of the NPP and NDC critically and weigh up which party has the welfare of Ghanaians at heart.

“Leaderships and opinion leaders across Ghana are invited to dispassionately review the President’s position on corruption,” said Mr Boadu, “its impact and, beyond that, the actual fight he is leading based on the principles he espouses and respects, and the actions he takes on the basis of those principles.”

    Hmm it looks like your website ate my first comment (it was extremely
    long) so I guess I'll just sum it up what I wrote and
    say, I'm thoroughly enjoying your blog. I as well am an aspiring blog writer but I'm still new to everything.
    Do you have any suggestions for novice blog writers?
    I'd certainly appreciate it.

    particular topic, but you sound like you know what you're talking about!
    Thanks

    Whhat you posted made a great deal of sense. However, think about this, suppose yyou wrote a catchier
    title? I ain't suggesying your information is not good., however what iif you
    added something that grabbe people's attention? I mean HOW MAHAMA
    GIFTED $180 BILLION ‒ 75% OF GHANA’S BAUXITE ‒ TO HIS BROTHER IBRAHIM is kinda boring.

    You miht peek att Yahoo's home page and note how they write news titles to grab people interested.
    You might try addiong a video or a related picture orr two to
    get people excited about what you've written. In my opinion, it would make your blog a little bit more interesting.

    When I originally commented I clicked the "Notify me when new comments are added" checkbox and now
    each time a comment is added I get several emails with the same comment.
    Is there any way you can remove people from that service?
    Bless you!
