Bower still I really am I genuinely think that he holds the key to a lot of the problems that you know we are trying to solve as an issue but he talks to the NDC too much I mean too much even he said in the campaign I don't understand why his comments must be directed at the NDC all the time I mean talking about coo coo and said oh we've done better than the NDC yeah well I mean I just I don't happen to have as much was the word I'm looking for have to be careful how I choose my way okay yeah anyway um you see my question is this our dams are not a guinea fowls nice and catchy and I thank him for the the soundbite but our dams what are they they are not guinea fowls accepted and I certainly hope that they stand up to which we are building dams it's not the guinea fowl standard of the Andes so that if we beat that standard that we consider ourselves a success our dams should serve a purpose for the people in the communities where these dams are being built but we have already learned from the Minister for special thank you initiatives that the dams we are building are meaningless please this is not an interpretation let me tell you what the woman says she said that if you want to build a meaning for them because of me you want to build a meaning for damn it must cost three million dollars we're not spending that much on the dance are we so yes so so we are not building meaning for dams thank you so if a dam is not meaningful what is it so so our dams are not guinea fowls but they are also not meaningful yeah with me rather than rather than you know throwing some white dots at the end EC who even at their best who only form half of the electorate dr. Pommier the vice president of the entire Ghana should please address his comments to us Miku Johansson I never sent guinea fowls to booking of a suit I've never done that so dr. Bonilla if he's explaining their dams to me could you he shouldn't talk about guinea fowl okay so maybe this is not to us why is the vice president of ghana only talking to the NDC because they are also danya's that's it let me finish with a headline on the front on the front of the daily guide there are a few others let's go through them quickly for example who thrown out again ex-muslim boss

take MP agreement may jeopardize future investments in the past sector and as a former CEO for the gmpgl x-mode minority responds to media budget is on the back page and other stories occupying the front page of The Daily Dispatch newspaper do not kill yourselves over MPP ending in DC have made cautions Muslims 44% of ganas MPs are below forty years and attached is a picture of Dominic meter wall the Member of Parliament for Ben Bella also the Minister for defense who according to the caption enter parliament in 2002 at each 24:22 oh and did they say 22 here yeah about 24 should be because I know it's supposed to be 24 well so that story's on page five of PEEP apiece yeah you can go ahead nothing you're done yeah okay all right so for me okay there's a publication from the office of the special prosecutor in two of the newspapers which is the graphic amber and the Ghanian times and the office is obliged to publish cases let me just read directly on a half year basis publish the following information in at least two daily newspapers of national circulation and on the website of the office so two of it that's the list of corruption cases investigated and prosecuted by the office and two is the number of acquittals convictions in cases pending in respect of the cases prosecuted and and the value of proceeds recovered if a me so that's why the office has made this publication in the Daily Graphic and in the dannion times newspaper so list of corruption cases investigated and accused charged for four courts there are two of those one is the Republic and Mahamaya Riga can Kenrick aqua sema4 investigator jointly with Yoko and the second one is the Republic in Hagia hawa nickimja so mala I want Omar Abudu Alex of our body al Haji Abdul mo moany Jesse one day marry Stella at the pasa mo moany Yakubu number and Mohammed IRA so two of the cases one common name that you see in there the states against these persons but Mahamaya got features in both and the list of corruption cases of accused persons arraigned and being prosecuted also true one is the Republican Mahamaya and then the Republican the same person so these two cases which is featured in the list of in cases investigated an accused charged for courts it's also the same as lists of corruption cases of accused persons arraigned and being persecuted so the office has done its duty in terms of this half-year reports and it says section 3 3 B of Acts nine five nine says there have been no acquittals and convictions as the two cases listed about appending has been prosecuted consequently no value of any assets have been recovered so this is as the office stands instead in in terms of its half yearly publication of the cases that it is funding that the usual epistles from the special prosecutor is also not giving the same caption and prominently this is a statutory duty no one is not started so another thing which is of interest which is also related to the courts is the fact that the Supreme Court has tracked down paragraphs one nine and two eight of the first shadow of the revenue administration Act 2016 at nine one five requiring parties to have tins that's the tax identification number before commencing actions in the courts and courts in the same in the court processes as unconstitutional and in contravention of certain provisions in the 1992 Constitution so if you're going to court you don't need anything to be able to do your processing and to have your case ahead and this was taken to code by the Center for juvenile deliquency on April 13 last year yeah and and that's the ruling which is very clear and as you can read it and see informative but it also speaks volumes to the other statutory action that need to be undertaken by citizens or even if it's a rightful action but for which now we've had those directives from the GRE and in an even government machinery especially the executive that citizens needed to have ten before the access certain services one that took certain actions and activities even though rightfully they are entitled to them as propounded by law you see it's because also to all the things that we tend to do based on the intentions because we want to make sure everybody is roped in into the tax database but at the end of the day we don't seem to be following the law and this one is a critical example this one is because a case has been taken to course so there's been a ruling yeah I mean but but if I have to produce a team before I access a certain service then perhaps we need to also test the law whether it's lawful for me to have it because I think as a requirement for yeah you want to have a thing some of those things they tell you they actually yeah and then when you actually officials when they started or when we asked the official when they started all these actions or initiatives they told us they wanted everybody to be tax compliant it's true but then we need or you want us to be tested in other areas yes as well oh that's a good services you want to access and they tell you that where's your team where's your this ok so just real quick in 30 seconds I mentioned that the police is trailing some armed robbers just in case you've come across so this is in the Ghanaian Times newspaper page 3 the robbers were reportedly engaged the police in a shootout when they closed in on them at a shaman and they've escaped so check out the details of you know what the police is asking you to look out for and if you come across them you've seen them you can unless the police I there's not enough time for me to do that alright so we have to take a break for sports and were bring the other no I did all the talking no you didn't do a surprise the segment with you yeah tomorrow Thursday I won't I wouldn't do a lot of talking about a condition precedent for in the UK I miss your baby yes yeah they see belated though wow yeah okay we've got we've got am business right after sport and
