Head of Communication at Ghana National Gas Company, Ernest Owusu Bempah, has launched a scathing attack on celebrities who have joined the #FixTheCountry campaign saying the noise being generated by them “is akin to drunken behaviour.”


The online protest has been trending for the past 72 hours on the micro-blogging platform Twitter. 

Commenting on the development in a Facebook post, Ernest Kofi Bempah questioned what exactly have these celebrities fixed by themselves apart from their fake social media lifestyle and living on borrowed glory. 

“Some of them can’t even fend for themselves let alone fix their boring life. They go about borrowing from people to support their fakery and some are in debts and can’t manage their lives and yet they are yelling at politicians? 

“These guys need to fix their backward lifestyle and build something for themselves and get a life,” Owusu Bempah stated. 

Below is his full post

Ernest Kofi Owusu Bempah Writes: 

The temerity with which some so-called celebrities dabble in politics in this country amazes me at times. I just can’t get my head around it. 

I have been holding myself back from getting into the gutter with these self-styled comedians who dabbles in social media politicking. 

Why do these “entertainers” think anybody really gives a crap about what they think? 

Of course, this is the downside to social media; where below-average intelligence folks who can’t read and understand English want to teach the president how to govern. 

The politics of attrition and patronage isn’t gonna help these social misfits and their backers.

President Akufo-Addo’s resilience, dynamism, organizational acumen and political astuteness is changing the game, and he is fixing both a pandemic and a country. Covid-19 has continued to devastate our beloved country like many other nations the world over. It is a process and the president is delivering on his mandate in the midst of the challenges facing us as a country. 

The noise being generated by these so-called celebrities is akin to a drunken behaviour. 

What exactly has these celebrities fixed by themselves apart from their fake social media lifestyle and living on borrowed glory? 

Some of them can’t even fend for themselves let alone fix their boring life. They go about borrowing from people to support their fakery and some are in debts and can’t manage their lives and yet they are yelling at politicians? 

These guys need to fix their backward lifestyle and build something for themselves and get a life. 

Elsewhere in civilized countries, celebrities uses their leverage to embark on social responsibility projects to help their communities. We can talk of Madonna, Naomi Campbell, Iddris Elba who are using their status to support their communities and even here in Africa.

Let’s move away from these wreached comedians who call themselves celebrities and deal with the NDC politicians fueling this agitation. 

Isn’t it even farcical to note that John Mahama who recklessly and irresponsibly ran a budget deficit of 12% GDP in 2012, and left an economy with a growth rate of 3.7%, the lowest ever in recent times is enabling these celebrities to yell about economic mismanagement? 

Jesus Christ! 

It took John Mahama administration three good years to recover from a mere budget overrun/deficit, culminating in the decision to run to the IMF for policy credibility. Akufo-Addo on other hand is dealing with worldwide pandemic and its ravaging effects. Even at that, Akufo-Addo’s management of the economy has been superb so far. The economy which hitherto had high inflation, a high budget deficit, a depreciating cedi and depleting gross international reserves has been totally turned around for the better. The Macroeconomic indices attest to this feat with several indicators showing fantastic results never achieved in Ghana’s history. 

According to the revised GDP estimate released by the Ghana Statistical Service, the economy is also growing steadily. 

Prudent fiscal measures by the Akufo-Addo regime have resulted in a sustainable inflation rate for over 15 months. Ghana is being adjudged by rating agencies as a global best performer in access to credit and also the best place to do business in West Africa. Ghana investment promotion council (GIPC) figures released shows an increase in projects registered at theGIPC amounting to over $7billion in foreign direct investment.Until we begin to collectively fix ourselves, nothing will ever change in this country. Indeed, before we can fix the country, we have to fix ourselves. Our stinking attitude and mindset has generally contributed to our problems as a country. 

Everything stops with us as the citizenry including the so-called celebrities. 

If the politician is to fix the country we the citizenry have a lot of issues that need fixing. 

Let’s fix our attitudes. Let’s fix the country and let all of us get a firm grip on ourselves. 

I shall return.

Prophet Eric Amponsah, (Computer Man)

• Prophet Eric Amponsah has pleaded with President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo to appoint COP Nathan Kofi Boakye as IGP

• According to Computer Man, COP Kofi Boakye has the capacity to deal with crime-related activities recorded in the country

• He made the appeal while sharing his views on recent crimes witnessed in Ghana

The Founder and Leader of Hope Generation Ministry, Prophet Eric Amponsah, has made a passionate appeal to President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo to appoint COP Nathan Kofi Boakye as the next Inspector General of Police.

Speaking in an interview with Oman Channel sighted by Ghanaweb, Prophet Amponsah touted the Head of Research and Planning for the Police Service as the only person viable of leading a police service capable of dealing with the recent rise in crimes.

“I will appeal to the President, His Excellency Nana Addo Danwka Akufo-Addo to appoint COP Kofi Boakye as IGP. Maybe COP Kofi Boakye between 2014 and 2016 supervised some arrests in the Ashanti Region which may not have augured well. But the only thing that can make Ghana peaceful and end armed robbery is COP Kofi Boakye. You can mark it on a wall,” Computer Man stated while sharing his view on the recent robbery cases including two separate attacks on bullion vans.

Armed gunmen on Monday, June 14, 2021, attacked a bullion van at Jamestown in Accra.
The robbers after staging the attack in which they made away with some undisclosed amount left dead a police officer who was on escort duty in the attacked van and a trader who was a resident in the vicinity.

On the next Tuesday after the Jamestown attack, another bullion van robbery incident was staged on the Accra -Winneba Road.

Unlike the Jamestown incident, the Accra-Winneba Road attack was unsuccessful as the robbers failed to stop the van despite their firing of several gunshots.

The two broad daylight robbery attacks coupled with other gun-related crimes recorded over the past few weeks has led many Ghanaians to raise concern over the level of security in the country.

Some Security Analyst including Mr Adam Bonaa have called for the resignation of the current Inspector General of Police.

Ghanaians on social media hound Rebecca Akufo-Addo over husband being ‘sleepless’

President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo and wife, Rebecca Akufo-Addo

What looked like a romantic father’s day message to her husband, President Nana Akufo-Addo, turned sour as Ghanaian social media users directed their anger on first lady, Rebecca Akufo-Addo.

She took to social media Sunday to praise her husband on father’s day and expressed how proud she was that Nana Akufo-Addo was working to make things work in the country.

“Over the last four years having watched and prayed for my husband as father of the nation, I have had a close view of the sleepless nights, the countless overstretches and the physical strain to make this country work,” she stated in his article.

Madam Akufo-Addo added, “President Akufo-Addo remains a father we all would be proud of.”

But the above message which was part of her goodwill message to the president has infuriated most Ghanaians who believe the nation is not on the right track, owning to the fact the cost of living is high in the country.

The first lady’s message coincided with an increment in fuel prices across the country– the more reason some Ghanaians descended on her.

Some asked if she was really in Ghana while others criticised Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo for sleeping in public.

Below are some of the responses to the first lady’s father’s day message to her husband:
