Things Are Looking Good For Ghana -First Lady

First Lady, Mrs Rebecca Akufo-Addo says things are looking good for Ghana with President Akufo-Addo in charge.

She said the president “came to office with a lot of promises and he is working hard to achieve all of them” adding that “he has achieved quite a lot” since taking office.

Mrs. Akufo-Addo was speaking to officials of the Ghana Embassy in the People’s Republic of China.

She noted that with a determined and focused person like the President steering affairs of the country, there “is a lot of hope for Ghana and things are already looking good for Ghana.”

The First Lady urged the staff to project the good name of Ghana as well as seek knowledge and skills that can help develop Ghana.

“There is a lot to learn from China therefore those of you here should learn and bring the knowledge back home to improve the country”, she said.

She announced that the newly constructed mother and baby unit at the Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital in Kumasi facilitated by the Rebecca Foundation will be inaugurated by the close of this year and her “next stop is Korle Bu.”

Ghana’s Ambassador to China, Mr. Edward Boateng, assured the First Lady he and his staff will “not disappoint the president but work hard to bring more investment into the country as well as look at the well being of Ghanaians in China.”

The First Lady is in China with a group of women entrepreneurs, some members of the Association of Ghana Industries (AGI) and academics to explore investment opportunities for women businesses and investment for the people and government of Ghana.

Kwami Sefa Kayi, Bola Ray Condemn Shatta Wale...

Chief Executive Officer of the Excellence in Broadcasting (EIB) Network, Nathaniel Kwabena Adisi aka Bola Ray has slammed award winning dancehall artiste, Shatta Wale for publicly firing a gun.

He described the action of the controversial musician as terribly bad, uncalled for, uncultured and roundly condemned it.

Few days ago, a video of Shatta Wale was posted online in which the artiste is seen shooting a gun while mentioning the names of top Nigerians artistes Wizkid, Patoranking and Timaya.

Entertainment Critics say his unfortunate action could spark unnecessary tension between Ghanaian and Nigerian artistes and in the process mar the unity that has existed between musicians from the two West Africa countries.

Speaking on Starr FM while hosting Multiple award-winning Nigerian Afropop singer and songwriter, Yemi Alade Wednesday, Bola Ray revealed that he personally called up Shatta Wale and rebuked him for his action.

“I called him up on Saturday and I had some strong words for him. Together with Kwami Sefa Kayi for 30 minutes we were on the phone with him and I think that is so bad, uncalled for, uncultured and I condemn it. Yes he says he’s going to apologize and I’m waiting for him to do that. I don’t mince words and I’m saying it for the first time on radio that, I did that. I didn’t mince words at all and I think that from how he came about, he was remorseful about it and says he was just…but I won’t go into details.”

Kwami Sefa Kayi and Bola Ray and are two great media personalities who Shatta Wale has immense respect for, and this is not the first time the duo have publicly condemned and advised him.

The first, was when they slammed him live on Peace FM when Shatta Wale had issues with Mark Okraku Mantey and colleague musician Yaa Pono.
