The Enquirer – Ahead of Nov. 7 polls: They‘re lying their way to power
It is becoming increasingly clear that the flagbearer of the opposition New Patriotic Party (NPP), Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, and his vice presidential candidate, Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, are lying their way to power with their mischief and propaganda.
While Nana Addo without further research told a group of Ghanaians in Italy that the NDC government is confused over the imposition of the pension tax, Bawumia was reported to have said the Mahama government “would tax air soon.”
Nana Addo, in his statement, said “Mismanagement, corruption and incompetence have brought us to where we are today. When the word “incompetent” is used to describe his government, the President gets very upset. But this week, we have seen another example. The Finance Minister, Seth Terkper, told us that he is preparing to tax pensions and allowances. And his President, two days later, stated that they were not going to do anything like that. If this is not confusion in his government, then I don’t know what it is; and if this is not a sign of incompetence, then you would have to tell me what incompetence means.”
But in a rebuttal fired yesterday, Felix Kwakye Ofosu, deputy Communications Minister, indicated that the flagbearer of the NPP has thrown truth and facts to the winds and had rather resorted to propaganda.

…as Shai Osudoku NDC clear them for Primary June 18
The Greater Accra Regional Branch of the ruling National Democratic Congress (NDC) party has cleared two parliamentary aspirants to contest in the Shai Osudoku Constituency parliamentary primaries on June 18, this year.

Mr. Victor Quashie Adonoo, Greater Accra Regional Secretary of the NDC, told The Enquirer yesterday that the two were the ones who had filed their nomination for the primaries to replace late William Ocloo, the party parliamentary candidate, who died through an accident on the Accra-Kumasi Highway at Juaso near Konongo in the Ashanti Region.
According to him, a joint committee from the national, regional and the constituency branches which vetted the parliamentary aspirants had cleared the two without any petition from any quarters within the constituency to contest the party’s parliamentary primaries on June 18.
NLA targets lottery players
Everyone needs that extra cash to manage the growing cost of living. Nowadays, in order to make some extra income, most people invest in Treasury Bills or properties, save at the banks or even play the lottery. The latter group is the focus of this Article.
The Oxford Dictionary of Current English defines lottery “as a means of raising money by selling numbered tickets and giving prizes to the holders of numbers drawn on random.”
In Ghana, lottery is patronized by people from all walks of life in spite of the stigmatization the game may have suffered, primary as a result of religious beliefs.
Over the years however, with the modernization and sophistication of the Games and Brands, acceptance and patronage has increased to a level whereby now some unscrupulous persons have started operating lotto illegally.
