Stephen Asamoah Boateng, the Director General of the State Interests and Governance Authority, has expressed his surprise at former President Mahama’s declaration that he isn’t a fool for building a factory before looking for raw materials to feed it.

In an interview with Wontumi TV, a former member of parliament for the Mfantsiman claimed that the insult Mr. Mahama issued properly matches him since it was prudent to have raw materials accessible before building a factory.

President Mahama recently questioned rhetorically if people believe he’s a “fool” for building the Komenda Sugar Factory first, knowing there would be no raw material to feed it.

“Have you forgotten you were building a factory near the sea?” Asabee responded. The wind would even corrode the building’s iron. Even my generator in the house will deteriorate if you use it for an extended period of time.”

He went on to say that John Mahama should not be given any political power because he does not deserve it.

“Does this appear to be the man who wants to lead the country?” ‘Apuutor’! … So the NDC doesn’t have a candidate; do they believe running a country is a joke?” He inquired.

Published

on

The High Court in Accra has summoned five witnesses for Dr Stephen Kwabena Opuni, the former Chief Executive Officer of COCOBOD who is standing trial and two others.

The court made the order through a subpoena to be served on the personalities that, Dr Stephen Kwabena Opuni sought to rely on for his defence.

The court presided over by Justice Clemence Honyenuga made the order after lawyers of Dr Opuni urged the court to issue subpoenas to those five witnesses.

Relying on Articles 19(2)(g)(h) of the 1992 Constitution, counsel moved two applications – subpoenas and for a witness to testify via video due to health concerns.

Moving the application for consideration under 19(2)(g), counsel prayed that Reginald Aduakwa, Bank manager assigned to first accused at Ecobank, who has now moved to Stanchart be subpoenaed.

Counsel also requested a subpoena to be directed at Samuel Amponsah, who was the acting Head of Cocoa Health Extension Division (CHED).

According to counsel, Mr Amponsah will give evidence that farmers in the Western North Region required Lothivite fertilizer.

Also, Opuni want, Peter Okyere Boateng, the Deputy Executive Director of CHED in charge of monitoring and evaluation to be summoned.

According counsel, he was directly in charge when the officials wrote the CHED report on the evaluation of fertilizers including Lithovit which report was given to them by prosecution.

Lawyer Codjoe said the said report talks about the effect of Lithovit on cocoa.

Also, Dr Gilbert Anin Kwarpong, who was the Executive Director of Cocoa Research Institute of Ghana (CRIG) in 2015/6 and 2016/17 Cocoa seasons was also mentioned.

Counsel explained that, it was during his time that COCOBOD through CRIG renewed the certificate for Lithovit fertilizer.

“We also want a Subpoena to issue at Atta Kwasi, a farmer, who used Lithovit and whose farm is in the Arong ahafo area of Ghana,” he prayed.

Video evidence

Under 19(2)(h) counsel prayed for a Twi Interpreter to be made available for some of the witnesses who will give evidence in twi.

For, Ambassador Daniel Ohene Agyekum, who was the former Board chair, resident in kumasi, counsel said, he has a health challenge by way of disk spinal issue, and therefore prayed that, his evidence be taken remotely by video conference.

According to counsel, although he had no problem with his voice, it will be problematic for him to be physically present in court.

Ambassador Agyekum was the board chair during the tenure of Dr Opuni and “was until the procurement act amended sometime in 2016, the chairman of entity tender committee.”

He told the court that, the purchase of Lithovit was approved by the entity tender committee and he is therefore also required to give evidence.

The prosecution led by Mrs Evelyn Keelson, Chief State Attorney did not oppose.
