Nana Akomea calls for Housing Policy to tackle housing deficit in Ghana



The Managing Director of Intercity STC Coaches Limited Nana Akomea is calling for a national Housing Policy for Ghana to address the housing deficit.

He noted that it is difficult for the youth in the country to get decent accommodation since they cannot afford the huge rent charges being demanded by landlords.

The STC boss indicated that the ruling NPP stated in their 2020 campaign manifesto that they would address the issue by giving some young people “Rent support.”

He was quick to add that the implementation of the initiative is not anytime soon.

“If we bring that policy into fruition, it will help a lot of young people,” he posited. “Two years rent advance for many young people are not able to afford.”

Nana Akomea was sharing his view on the housing deficit as reported by the 2021 Population and Housing Census.

The report showed that a little over 20 percent of the populace live in containers and kiosks in the two most populous cities; Accra and Kumasi.

He told Dr. Randy Abbey on Good Morning Ghana that even beyond the kiosks and the containers, “there’s still a lot of housing deficit to tackle.”

He emphasized, “if we can make the planning and the zoning laws work, if we don’t make them work, we can go and find 20 billion dollars for a new city it won’t work, cos Accra used to work.”

Transport fares to go up by Monday



Transport fares are expected to go up by Monday, October 25, according to the Ghana Private Road Transport Union (GPRTU).

The percentage at which the increment would be done is immediately not known but according to the Union, it is as a result of the fuel price increment.

The Industrial Relations Officer of GPRTU, Accra branch, Alhaji Abass Imoro, said they have met with the Transport Ministry on the issue and the only thing left for them is to increase the fares by next week.

“The rate at which our fuel prices are increased, I don’t want to preempt anything because there could be another increment soon,” he stated.

Earlier, the Union had warned that it would soon consider increment in transport fares should the current trend of fuel price increments continue.

The Union noted that at the last increments in transport fares, they had projected up till December, 2021 for any varying decision but the rate at which fuel products are being increased arbitrarily, they may be compelled to increase it before December.

Effective Sunday, October 17, a litre of fuel cost GH¢6.80 at some oumps, a situation which has caused many a Ghanaian anxiety.

Reacting to the issue on 3FM’s Sunrise on Wednesday to host Alfred Ocansey, Alhaji Imoro said “do not blame us if we increase it”.

“Government came up with a sharing policy and we have done our part but they have not. So, hopefully, by next week, we shall increase transport fares.”

Alhaji Imoro said “as we speak now, those who are not in any union have increased their fares. The floating trotro drivers have increased their fares”.

Energy expert Kojo Poku said “the government is not taking the impact of fuel price increase seriously”.

He said all the levies on fuel products have transferred unto the consumer, making life difficult for Ghanaians.

Mr. Poku urged the media to prevail on the Finance Ministry to render accounts to the people of Ghana on the stabilization levy.

“The Finance Ministry must account for the GH¢1.26 billion Price Stabilization Levy”.

‘No Ghana Card, No salary’ directive by controller put on hold



The new directive by the Controller and Accountant General’s Department (CAGD) ordering all public sector workers to obtain a Ghana card or forfeit their salaries have been suspended.

The decision according to Graphiconline arrived after the Ministry of Employment and Labour Relations, Ministry of Finance and CAGD and the leadership of organised labour representing public sector workers held a meeting on CAGD payroll.

However, the Controller and Accountant General’s Department (CAGD) has been tasked to port the names of public sector workers in their existing database onto the National Identification Authority (NIA) platform and thereafter inform the various institutions of any unregistered staff that may exist.

There have been agitations by a section of government workers and unions since the Department issued the directive on Tuesday, October 12, 2021, with some asking the Controller and Accountant-General to reconsider the directive and withdraw it completely or have the deadline extended.

But the Head of Public Relations at CADG insisted that the directive won’t change as it was the best way to address challenges in the government’s payroll system.

He explained that Section 8(4) of the Public Financial Management Act, 2016 (Act 921), mandated the CAGD to, among other functions, receive, disburse and provide secured custody for public funds.

However, the department has withdrawn this directive on Tuesday 19 October 2021.

Homos*xuality Has Been Secretly Legalized In Ghana and Will Be Announced Soon – Captain Smart Drops A Deep Secret



Captain Smart who had earlier vowed to see that homos*xuality is never legalized in the country has dropped a deep secret about the controversial ANTI-LGBTQI+ bill.

Whiles speaking on ONUA TV yesterday, Captain Smart wildly alleged that homos*xuality has been secretly legalized and Nana Addo is yet to officially announce to the general public.

The award-winning journalist further added that all the civil society organizations in the country are quiet over the LGBTQI+ brouhaha because they have been told to shut up.

He went on to add that, Hon Dafianor has briefed him that the majority of members who are against the legalization of LGBT rights were strategically sent on diplomatic missions when it was time to present the ANTI-LGBTQI+ bill before parliament.

Captain Smart who seems to know more than all of us also accused lawyer Maurice Akoto Ampaw and NPP female chieftain, Madam Audrey of receiving monies from some members of the LGBTQI+ community to help them champion their course.

Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo Addo’s cousin, Gabby Otchere Darko was also inculpated of helping the LGBTQI+ community behind the scenes after receiving a huge sum of money from an external body.

Captain Smart also lamented over the Christain Council’s sudden quietness over the issue after earlier leading the campaign against the legalization of LGBTQI+.

The grouchy #Fixthecountry lead member additionally dared the government to drop a press statement to criminalize homos*xuality if it hasn’t legalized the act without Ghanaians being fully aware.
