Mahama anniversary address a propaganda – PPP
By Charles Takyi-Boadu

Dr. Paa Kwesi Nduom's Progressive People's Party (PPP) yesterday took time to dissect the recent State of the Nation Address presented to Parliament by President John Dramani Mahama, describing it as a 'hollow and empty propaganda piece.'


At a press conference held at the party's Asylum Down headquarters in Accra yesterday, PPP's Director of Operations, Nana Ofori Owusu underscored, 'To the surprise of many Ghanaians, the President in a well rehearsed delivery, full of needless humour, decided to travel the path of propaganda, painting a picture of what is far from the realities of the true state of the nation.'
He continued, 'When government increases VAT, removes subsidies on petroleum products, increases utility tariffs, transport fares go up, cost of doing business increases drastically, with graduates  searching everywhere for non-existing jobs, one thing is certain; the government does not care about the people, to even think of putting the people first.'
Nana Ofori Owusu observed that 'judging from the President's style of promises as we have seen in the past two years, we cannot be sure that any of the things he said would be done.'
This, he said, was evident in the fact that 'in 2013 the President directed the Ministry of Employment and Labour Relations to work with the Ghana Statistical Service to produce quarterly labour surveys to inform policy and planning.'
These surveys, Nana Ofori Owusu recalled, were expected to create an accurate database of the unemployed among all categories of Ghanaian society and track these on a quarterly basis, since President Mahama said they were to ensure that new jobs were accurately recorded and tracked while making it possible to coordinate the various job creation and employment initiatives.
Deception
One year down the line, the PPP quoted President Mahama as having repeated the same things when he said in his recent address, 'I have asked the Ministers of Education and Employment and Labour Relations to sponsor a joint survey of the professional and skills sets in demand in the Ghanaian labour market.'

In view of this, the party's Director of Operations insisted, 'nothing came out of the 2013 survey by way of employment' and that 'this 2014 statement is in contravention to the spirit of Article 34 (2).'
With regard to 'Free secondary education' that the President promises to implement by 2016, Nana Ofori Owusu said 'the less we say about the President's 360-degree turnaround the better.'
This, according to the PPP, is perhaps the reason why 'the requirement of the 1992 Constitution for free and compulsory education has been ignored by those who have had the opportunity to lead this nation.'
For the party, it comes as no surprise why what they described as 'great ideas' have escaped President Mahama since according to the PPP, 'transformation needs great minds and insightful leadership' and that 'life-changing policy ideas require dynamic leaders who are capable of managing the challenges transformational policy change will present.'
In view of this, the PPP stressed the need for 'urgent reforms in the country's governance system to enable the smooth operation of good, open and accountable governance, as a catalyst for Ghana's transformational development seems to be completely lost on the President.'

Love the article on Gaddafi
We must rise above tribalism & divide & rule of the colonialist who stole & looted our treasure & planted their puppets to lord it over us..they alone can decide on whosoever is performing & the one that is corrupt..but the most corrupt nations are the western countries that plunder the resources of other nations & make them poorer & aid the rulers to steal & keep such ill gotten wealth in their country..yemen,syria etc have killed more than gadhafi but its not A̷̷̴ good investment for the west(this is laughable)because oil is not in these countries..when obasanjo annihilated the odi people in rivers state, they looked away because its in their favour & interest..one day!

Hello from
Johannesburg
I was amazed to find a website for Africans in Hungary.
Looks like you have quite a community there. Here in SA we have some three million Zimbabweans living in exile and not much sign of going home ... but in Hungary??? Hope to meet you on one of my trips to Europe; was in Steirmark Austria near the Hungarian border earlier this month. Every good wish for 2011. Geoff in Jo'burg

I'm impressed by
ANH work but...
Interesting interview...
I think from what have been said, the Nigerian embassy here seem to be more concern about its nationals than we are for ourselves. Our complete disregard for the laws of Hungary isn't going to help Nigeria's image or going to promote what the Embassy is trying to showcase. So if the journalists could zoom-in more focus on Nigerians living, working and studying here in Hungary than scrutinizing the embassy and its every move, i think it would be of tremendous help to the embassy serving its nationals better and create more awareness about where we live . Taking the issues of illicit drugs and forged documents as typical examples.. there are so many cases of Nigerians been involved. But i am yet to read of it in e.news. So i think if only you and your journalists could write more about it and follow up on the stories i think it will make our nationals more aware of what to expect. I wouldn't say i am not impressed with your work but you need to be more of a two way street rather than a one way street . Keep up the good work... Sylvia
