Shatta Wale criticizes government for ‘Year of Return’ failure.

Charles Nii Armah a.k.a Shatta Wale has criticized the government on the failure of the Year of return. He stated the declaration of the ‘Year of Return’ was not successful. Shatta Attributed this to the government’s failure to educate the masses about the ‘Year of Return.

“We’ve failed to educate the country about this ‘year of return’. So I don’t see anything going on. This is because the government has failed to educate the people. When there is a celebration in a particular country, it is everywhere”.

The Borjor hitmaker said that the lack of sensitization has resulted in low publicity. “In other countries, you go to hotels, people are talking about it. It is on the street. People are making money off it. But Ghana is the same way we know it. everyone is doing their own thing. You don’t see ‘trotro’ drivers branding their vehicles ‘year of return’. You don’t see any banners in town. It is just a few people in the country who are benefiting.

He advised the government to educate the people because the people can have a direct impact. “Next time I feel the government should really educate the government about it. This is because it is the people who can make money from. If the people make money the pressure on the government is reduced. But now there is pressure in the system that people are not even understanding what the ‘year of return’ is’. This is because they have no idea about the initiative.

He said that all the people who are coming into the country should not just visit the presidency and CapeCoast. They should have an engagement with the local people.

It is Shatta Wale’s assertion that the ‘Year of Return’ initiative by the government has failed.

Kotoro bought votes with waakye-Referee Osei Nsia

The Regional Football Association (RFA) elections was been successfully organised by the Normalization Committee (NC) today.

In the Ashanti Regional elections, the incumbent popularly known as Chairman Kotoro retained his seat after the votes were counted.

Chairman Kotoro had 41 votes out of the 71 votes cast representing 58% whiles his opponent Referee Osei Nsiah managed 29 votes representing 41%. There was only one rejected ballot and voter turnout was 97%

Mr. Osei Nsiah (Esq.) has alleged that he was in the pole position to have won the elections but Chairman Kotoro influenced the election by giving some of the delegates “waakye”. He believes that he believes that Chairman Kotoro’s gesture of buying “waakye” for the said delegates contributed to his loss in the Ashanti Region’s Football Association elections.

Speaking to King Eben on Silver FM in Kumasi, he insisted that he has accepted the outcome of the elections and further congratulated Chairman Kotoro eventhough he strongly feels that fairness was not observed.

The lawyer and former Referee said that he will go back to the drawing and prepare himself for the next elections and wishes his opponent all the best in the next four years.

Do you believe Mr. nsiah’s claim is legitimate and he is just a bad loser. Lets see your comments below.
