Speaker Bagbin under suspected threat of assassination

Published

on

Whatsup News can report that security details of Speaker Alban Sumana Bagbin are currently undergoing serious training at the Asutuary Military camp, following fears that the Speaker’s life may be in danger for his hardline stance against advocacy for the Lesbians, Gay, Bisexuals, Transgender, Queers, etc. (LGBTQ++) in Ghana.

A former media liaison, who would not want his identity disclosed, told Whatsup News that, powerful LGBTQ++ lobbyists are not happy with the stance of the Speaker as a Private Member Bill titled “Promotion of Proper Human Sexual Rights and Ghanaian Family Values Bill, 2021” is set to be passed by the Ghanaian Parliament to outlaw LGBTQ++ advocacy in the country.

Speaker Bagbin has made no secret of his intense abhorrence of LGBTQ activities in Ghana. He recently summoned the Australian High Commissioner to Ghana, Gregory Andrews and told him point-blank that Ghana will not legalise LGBTQ++ advocacy.

Andrews had courted the wrath of the Speaker when he defied Ghanaian statutes by inaugurating an LGBTQ++ headquarters in Accra. The office was promptly shut down by security agents.

According to our source, the LGBTQ++ lobby group will attempt to use soft skills to persuade the Speaker, but if that fails, they are likely to activate an operation to eliminate Hon. Bagbin, and possibly the main spearhead of the Bill, Samuel George, the Ningo Prampram Member of Parliament.

An aide to the Speaker told Whatsup News that a few days ago, Hon. Bagbin met with his security details to evaluate the threat and he is not taking the threat lightly, particularly after his close shave with a fatal road accident in August that killed his dispatch rider, Chief Inspector Kaakyire Abednego.

The Accident happened at the Juaso Water Works at the Asante Akyem South Municipality in the Ashanti Region off the Accra – Kumasi Highway.

Go and complete the E-block yourself if you’re tired – Akufo-Addo to Aflao Chief [watch]

Published

on

President Nana Akufo-Addo has responded to an ultimatum by the Chief of Aflao, Togbe Fiti to complete the E-blocks in his community within four months.

 

According to the President, the chief is not in any position to issue such ultimatums.

 

In an exclusive interview on Peace FM’s ‘Kokrokoo’ programme, the president said if the chief is tired of the e-blocks rotting away, he should go and complete it himself.

 

Responding to a question by the host Kwame Sefa Kayi, President Akufo-Addo said in Twi that Togbui Fiti should go and complete the project himself.

 

Yesterday, Torgbui Amenya Fiti handed the government a four-month ultimatum to operationalize the E-block high school facility in the area.

 

The GH¢9 million project, started under the erstwhile National Democratic Congress (NDC) administration, has 26 classrooms, five departments, and a science block.

 

Torgbui Amenya Fiti, who was speaking during a courtesy call by members of the Minority on the Education Committee, said the government’s approach to education was appalling.

 

“The next place for revenue generation after the Tema Harbour is the Aflao border. So I had to push former President, John Mahama to put up that structure. I had to be running from here to Accra, begging. Should we be begging for education? If we have to beg for education before people can go to school, then I don’t know what we call democracy at all. Look at the structure, it’s almost 90 percent complete. The thieves are having a field day, going in there to have everything removed at will.”

After many failed attempts, he unsuccessfully declared independence for “Western Togoland” and was arrested for the first time and charged with treason.

Mr Kudjordji was arrested again for similar offences, airlifted from Ho to Accra and charged for treason with some of his accomplices.

He was again granted bail due to old age and after his release, heard days later declaring independence for Western Togoland and had since gone into hiding till information on his death.

He was born on April 7, 1934.
