Prophet Nigel Gaisie breaks silence on kidnapped girls (AUDIO)

0

Ghana’s hopes of finding and reuniting the kidnapped girls with their families may be an exercise in futility, the founder and leader of True Word Fire Prophetic Ministries, Prophet Nigel Gaisie.

This is because Prophet Gaisie said his personal prayers have so far not revealed that there is any chance of finding the girls.

My prayers don’t show that anything is going to come of it [the search]; as I stand and speak with you as a prophet of God and a prophet that speak to the nation, I am not seeing any trace [of the girls],” Prophet Gaisie revealed to adomonline.com in an exclusive interview.

On claims by the police that the children would be found and reunited with their families, the prophet said: “whoever said that is a joke because they don’t know. Should God have mercy enough for us to find them in any case at all, it wouldn’t be within the jurisdiction of Ghana”.

He noted that if the children were anywhere within the jurisdiction of Ghana, some of them [prophets] would have prophetically sensed their presence and provided direction on their whereabouts.

Prophet said he had prophesied during his 31st December 2018 watchnight service that 2019 will witness a lot of reported cases of missing children.

Prophet Gaisie is famous for his prophesies on late dancehall diva, Ebony Reigns. He, prior to her death, prophesied that the musician was going to die through an accident.

 

Nkrumah’s ‘kankan nyame’ is the cause of Ghana’s woes – Prophet Kwateng

0

A man of God who is best known for the propagation of the existence of heaven and the admonishment of Christians to live a sin-free life has made a shocking revelation which may call for the needed attention of the government.

Prophet Francis Kwateng who is the General Overseer of the House of Power Ministries on Thursday revealed that the first president of Ghana, Dr. Kwame Nkrumah’s actions some long years ago is causing the country a great harm.

According to the Prophet, the woes of the country can be attributed to the bringing in of a god called “kankan nyame” by Dr. Nkrumah so many years ago.

Prophet Kwateng indicated, “Since the introduction of that god by Nkrumah, the god has never seized to be in charge of Ghana. And because of this, though Ghana can boast of lots of minerals like gold, timber, diamond, etc, the country will still struggle in terms of finances if leaders of the country do not do the needful in terms of Biblical directives”.

The revelation came during the Church’s one week program dubbed “Mpuntuo Mmere”. The Prophet said, that god spiritually has been fighting the country hence, the country’s predicaments. He indicated the country Ghana needs to pay a debt owed that god in order to be free from it otherwise; the country will continue to be under its watch and control.

The prophet said the revelation was revealed to him by God and that, it was imperative for the leaders of the country to be aware of the situation.

“If we don’t pay, the “kankan nyame” will take all our monies. If we don’t pay, Ghana will continue to suffer because the country needs to settle that god in order to be free from it” he averred.

Meanwhile, some attendees of the event have called on the present government under the leadership of President Nana Akufo-Addo to heed to the call of the Prophet by seeing him and doing the needful for the betterment of the country and its populace.

The First Vice Chairman of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) in the Central Region, Mr. Horace Ekow Ewusi, has sued the National communications Officer of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) Sammy Gyamfi at the High Court of Justice, General Jurisdiction Accra, Greater Region for defamation.

The NPP stalwart confirmed the report in an interview with Peace FM News.

According to him, Sammy Gyamfi has ruined his (Ewusi’s) high earned reputation calling him names and accusing him of conspiring with foreigners to undertake illegal mining in the country as a member of the Galamsey team.

It is believed the NDC’s Communication Director questioned the source of wealth of the NPP’s First Vice Chairman, and also tried linking it to conspiring and corruption activities being undertaken by Ekow Ewusi as a member of the galamsey team.

Mr. Ewusi on the 10th day of May 2019 got the Accra High Court to serve Mr. Sammy Gyamfi with a writ of defamation for which the defendants, Sammy Gyamfi is expected to enter appearance within eight days, failure of which a default judgment will be given against the defendant.

Mr. Ewusi, who by dint of his hard work and loyalty to the party, was elected as the First vice Chairman of the NPP in the Central Region, told Peace FM that he finds it “very denigrating and humiliating” that the Communication Director of the NDC found it necessary to accuse him of corruption and insulting his personality.

Meanwhile, reliable sources have hinted that the defendant, Sammy Gyamfi, is making strenous efforts for an out of court settlement and has equally done that through some high profile party members and other influential personalities, but the NPP First Vice Chairman remains resolute in his desire to seek legal redress.

Cargo truck falls on its side on Kwame Nkrumah interchange (PHOTOS)

0

A cargo truck has fallen on its side on the Kwame Nkrumah Circle interchange causing gridlock on that stretch.

The driver of the vehicle, whose name was not given was however brought out of the vehicle unhurt.

The vehicle was from the Ring road stretch and was headed towards Kaneshie when the accident occurred.

The Police and the Ghana Fire Service were at the scene to bring the situation under control.

Narrating the sequence of events to Citi News, an eyewitness said the cargo truck was carrying raw materials for the production of diapers and sanitary pads.

According to the eyewitness, the driver of the vehicle lost control of the truck, when trying to use the overpass, as the load was heavy hence making the steering of the truck difficult.

The truck fell on the passenger side of the vehicle. The driver was the only person in the vehicle.

The traffic situation at the Kwame Nkrumah circle interchange worsened as a result of the accident.

Traffic on the overpass was subsequently diverted.

“I heard a very loud sound on the bridge, I thought it was thunder. The sound was very loud and scary. So we got to the overhead and I saw the huge truck lying on its side…. The driver was the only one in the vehicle. The load was very heavy and it made the climbing difficult for the driver. It is unclear if the driver had been taken to the hospital, but he said he was okay.”

“I understand the truck was carrying raw materials for pampers and sanitary pads,” an eyewitness said.

This is not the first time such an incident had occurred on the stretch.

In March 2017, three persons were rushed to the hospital following injuries they sustained as a container truck fell off the Kwame Nkrumah Circle interchange.

The DAF truck with registration number GT 5557 – 11 carrying two containers loaded with bags of rice and sugar, was reported to be climbing the interchange from the Silver Cup end of the road when it tumbled through the railings with the head and one of the containers crashing down onto two stationary buses, flattening one and grazing the other

Woman leads Muslim prayers in Tamale Mosque

0

In conservative Muslim communities, women are not allowed to lead congregations or deliver sermons.

However, one woman is challenging the status quo in Tamale by delivering sermons during this Ramadan.

Her congregation is made up of women who she teaches the principles of Islam and also encourages them to lead prayers at their various mosques.

She explained that she seeks to empower women with knowledge through her teachings.

“My mission is simple. The reason I am teaching my fellow women is that I know the Quran and I want to empower them with knowledge. I have learnt the Quran and there is no need keeping it to myself when I can teach other women to also know what their religion says about women.”

Ayshietu Adams, one of the women who attends her sermons regularly, is convinced.

“She teaches us how to humble ourselves. If you are too proud and disrespectful, here, she will teach you that there is a day you will die. If fighting is your habit, she will let you know it is bad. If you are financing conflict by buying weapons to supply fighters, when you come here, she will ask you to stop it.”

A curtain divides the men from the women in this mosque as Imam Mustapha Abdullai leads the prayer for the day.

He says women are not allowed to mix with the men at the mosque, neither can they lead prayers.

“A woman’s body is attractive. That is why they are not allowed to mix with men for prayers. When you stand by her, you may not be able to concentrate when praying.

“That is why a religion does not support it especially when the woman is not your own wife. Keeping women isolated at the mosque has been the norm across many parts of the world.”

For Imam Mustapha, the woman preacher is overstepping her bounds.

“It is not allowed for a woman to teach in public let alone leading the prayer. It is against religion. She can only guide her colleague women not read the law.”

Muslims all over the world are observing thirty days of fasting and prayers which is one of the basic requirements of Islam. During the period they offer prayers for blessings for their families, communities and the country.

Ghana may legalise same-sex marriage in 2039 – Kpebu

0

A private legal practitioner, Martin Kpebu has estimated 2039 as a possible timeline for when Ghana may pass or accept same-sex marriage in its legal framework.

He said although same-sex relationships are a major taboo across many African countries, Ghana cannot stand the international force that comes with such advocacy adding that it was just a question of time.

Already a dicey topic in the public sphere, currently, Ghana’s criminal law (Chapter 6 of the Criminal Code, 1960, as amended by The Criminal Code (Amendment) Act, 2003) same-sex sexual activity among males is illegal and punishable by law.

However, Mr Kpebu who spoke at a workshop organised by the Commonwealth Human Rights Initiative (CHRI) last Thursday believes that the law inherited from the British colonial era was inconsistent with the fundamental human rights of the individual and violates their right to dignity.

He explained that laws that target people based on their sexual preferences, social origin, social status undermine the principles of freedom, liberty and justice.

“What two adult people do in private, why is it another man’s business,?” he queried.

The workshop on decriminalising and declassifying petty offences in Ghana was meant to familiarise journalists and other media actors on the importance of The African Commission on Human and People’s Rights (ACHPR) and other regional instruments signed by member countries.

Admitting the matter was a complex one, he stressed that was how societies evolved and it always took a few outspoken people to speak on delicate issues which start debates; “So those who are very sensitive to it will eventually get desensitised.”

 

“You think in 20 years we would not have legalised same-sex marriage; we can’t stand the force. It’s just a question of time,” he stated.

This dovetails into President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo’s 2017 interview on Aljazeera TV network where he said Ghana at present did not have enough coalition to impact public opinion on the subject and call for a new paradigm.

“At the moment, I don’t feel, and I don’t see that in Ghana there is that strong current of opinion that is saying that this is something that we need to even deal with. It is not so far a matter which is on the agenda,” the president told the Qatar based TV station.

Mr Kpebu who specializes in civil and public Interest litigation said such violations extend to both the enactment and enforcement of criminal laws which tend to target poor and other categories of marginalized persons who remain vulnerable to violations of their fundamental human rights.

He said crimes like prostitution by its nature was limited to very poor or very low-income persons and it was better Ghana legalised prostitutes and tax them instead of raiding and arresting them which usually ends nowhere.

He further argued that the Dutch government gives a grant to Ghana every year through some of the taxes they take from prostitutes and if we Ghanaians abhor the practice so much then it was better to steer clear of any grants or loans from the Dutch government.

Mr Kpebu who tackled the criminalization of poverty at the workshop said it was about time Ghana initiate steps to decriminalize petty offenses and believes that some petty crimes committed by indigent citizens were essentially due to socio-economic issues which reinforces discriminatory attitudes against marginalised persons.

Dr Isaac Annan, the Director of Human Rights Department at the Commission on Human Rights and Administrative Justice (CHRAJ), took participants through the Luanda Guidelines and its implementation in the country and called for a check on the arbitrary use of power by institutions entrusted with such powers and hold them accountable.

According to him, it was important to hold duty bearers accountable for the powers conferred on them through the constitution which he said has more to do with institutional transparency than corruption urging Ghanaians to be uncompromising in demanding for their rights and to do so in its proper context.

He said state security institutions like the police service are expected to observe basic and uphold, protect and promote the rights of people subject to arrest, police custody and pretrial detention.

In that regard, they reinforce the importance of a criminal justice system built on core human rights principles explaining that it was for this reason that the Luanda Guidelines were developed to strengthen criminal justice systems of ACHPR member countries.

Edmund Amarkwei–Foley, Head of Department for Public Law at the Ghana Institute of Management and Public Administration (GIMPA) who played an instrumental role in developing the CHRI research took participants through the Ouagadougou Declaration and Plan of Action on Accelerating Prisons and Penal Reforms in Africa and its relationship to the Ghanaian justice system.

He said a concerted strategy was required to enhance rehabilitation and development of convicted offenders during the period of imprisonment and promoting their reintegration back into society.

Mr Amarkwei–Foley said Ghana was moving towards increasing punishment which was contrary to the global trend for incarceration.

He explained that the objective of adhering to regional instruments was to work towards reducing the prison population and introducing penal reforms that could help ACHPR member countries enter a more rehabilitative regime.

For her part, Madam Mina Mensah, the Head of Africa Office, CHRI, said Ghana has an obligation to adhere to international treaties and conventions they’ve signed on to.

According to her, although there is a need for laws to be respected, it was also important to also ensure the human rights of people are upheld.

She said conversations on decriminalising petty offences which was mostly linked with poverty was crucial to decongesting Ghana’s overcrowded prisons.
