National Organizer of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Joseph Yamin, is reprimanding persons who are subtly pushing for running mate slop of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) 2024 ticket after Dr. Bawumia elections as flagbearer.
A number of names, mostly indigenes from the Ashanti Region, are making rounds as all have interest in the running mate role within the NPP. But Mr. Yammin is urging them that instead of jostling for positions; they should rather channel their efforts into bringing development to the region.
The NDC National officer was speaking on Ultimate FM’s morning Show hosted by Julius Caesar Anadem in Kumasi monitored by MyNewsGh.com
“Let’s tell the NPP in the face they keep disappointing this, Region. The last time I told you, they were just focusing on developing themselves and not the region. How come so many people are interested in a job at the presidency, instead of seeing to all the development the region needs? Asantes deserves better. You see, the Majority Leader Kyei Mensah likes the running mate job. I know of Napo Energy Minister, the 1st Deputy Speaker Joe Wise, and the Education Minister, Adutwum is also showing interest, how can they all be interested in the running mate slot”, he wondered.
“The latest to join is the Deputy Finance Minister, John Kumah, it is just laughable. The chief of staff Fremah Opare is also there” he added.
“How is it that all these people want the running mate slot, and none is focusing on pushing development in the region? Just drive around and projects that are supposed to be finished in under a year or two are still at the ground level”, Yammin bemoaned.
Mr. Yammin believes that if all these individuals in the NPP government had the region at heart, monumental projects would have been the talk of the town.
“The airport is at a standstill, the market is at a standstill, roads, hospitals are not seeing improvements all because of personal interest, not regional interest”, he disclosed.
Let’s live harmoniously to safeguard Ghana’s peace – Peace Council on recent clashes
The National Peace Council (NPC) has called on Ghanaians to live harmoniously with each other to safeguard the country’s peace.
It has urged Ghanaians to protect “the peace and security of the country by creating and using avenues of tolerance, cooperation, and coexistence to sustain the country’s identity as an oasis of peace in Africa.”
This follows the unfortunate violent clashes in some parts of the country which have resulted in the deaths of some citizens.
Reports from Kintampo in the Bono East Region, Nkwanta in the Oti Region, and Wenchiki in the Northeast Region indicate that violence has led to the destruction of lives and property in these affected communities.
In a statement issued on Wednesday, the NPC reminded Ghanaians “of paragraphs (c), (d) and (i) of
article 41 of the 1992 constitution of the Republic of Ghana which states thus: The exercise and enjoyment of rights and freedoms is inseparable from the performance of duties and obligations, and accordingly, it shall be the duty of every citizen.”
“To foster national unity and live in harmony with others; to respect the rights, freedoms and legitimate interests of others, and generally to refrain from doing acts detrimental to the welfare of other persons. To co-operate with lawful agencies in the maintenance of law and order.”

Defence and National Security Ministers to appear before parliament today over Kintampo clash
The Ministers of Defence and National Security are expected to appear before the Defence and Interior Committee of Parliament on Thursday, November 23, to provide a briefing on actions being taken by the government to forestall a clash between the Mo and Wangara tribes in the Kintampo North municipality.
This comes on the back of a summons by the Speaker of Parliament, Alban Bagbin.
According to the Member of Parliament for the area, Joseph Kwame Kumah, tensions were high when the Mo tribe requested to perform rituals within the months of November and December, coinciding with the annual Klubi festival of the Wangara community.
In response to calls for a ceasefire by the MP, the Speaker directed that the government must take immediate steps to ensure peaceful coexistence.
“As the first authorities to come to this house to brief the committee on Defense and Interior, this is an urgent matter that should be handled with dispatch. I think Thursday should be okay for the two ministers and their commanders to appear before the committee early tomorrow morning by 9 am to brief the committee. It is an urgent matter.”
“The National Security Council through their regional office should immediately intervene because the chieftaincy institution is one of the cornerstones of the peace and security of our country, and we hold that institution dearly. We will do everything to prevent that institution from falling into disarray,” he stated.
Watch how Quick Credit staff violently raided restaurant over ‘unpaid loan’
Some staff of a popular loan company, Quick Credit Ghana, stormed a local restaurant to recover a loan sum.
Videos available to GhanaWeb and shared on social media showed over half a dozen male workers in violent exchanges with the staff at the restaurant said to be located at Laterbiokoshie, a suburb of Accra.
According to a person videoing the encounter, the staff had forced their way into the facility, packed up the furniture and succeeded in locking up the place before leaving.
The video, shot in the evening, however, did not show any affected customers nor did it show any casualties.
The company has yet to issue an official statement on the development. GhanaWeb is also trying to reach out to the affected businesses.
