To start with the presidential jet is fit for purpose . The presidential jet can be managed. Ghanaians are suffering and that’s where is our focus should be.

The economy is in sluggish and this has contributed to frequent strikes of the government servants. Especially our teachers. Our school children in the basic level don’t have access to basic text books.

Furthermore, our second school system is deactivated. The double track system lacks proper infrastructure to provide conducive environment for learning.

Moreover, quality healthcare delivery has also become a problem. Because there is no access since most hospitals are full to their capacity. And it’s very sad patients now lie on the floor because there are no beds for them.

The Tunisian electoral authority announced on Sunday that turnout for Saturday’s parliamentary elections stood at only 8,8%.

Despite the low turnout, the lowest in any poll since the revolution in 2011, the president of the electoral authority described the process as clean due to the lack political financingand vote buying.

“From my point of view the reason is clear. It is a change in the system of polling and the lack of political funding for electoral campaigns. Because for the first time, and we say it taking our responsibilities, for the first time there have been clean elections and a clean electoral campaign, free from political funding that was the reason behind buying votes – let us be clear and frank – so for the first time the Tunisian elections were pure”, said Farouk Bouasker, president of Tunisia’s ISIE electoral commission.

Opposition groups boycotted the election, describing it as part of a “coup” against democracy.

The main opposition alliance called on the president to bring all political forces together for consultations.

“It (electoral commission, Ed.) says the turnout is 8.8%. We say it is an earthquake of 8.8 on the Richter scale. We ask those who run (the country) illegally and without any legitimacy to leave”, demanded National Salvation Front leader, Ahmed Nejib Chebbi.

The election took place almost a year and a half after Saied deployed military vehicles to suspend parliament, following months of political deadlock.

In July, President Saied used a referendum to push through a new constitution virtually stripping parliament of any real power.

Preliminary results are expected Monday.

US President Joe Biden turns 80 Today: New Generation’ of Democratic Leaders Takes Control in Congress

President Joe Biden will celebrate his 80th birthday on Sunday, marking the first time a sitting president has reached that milestone while in office and fueling speculation about how his advancing age will affect his political future.

Biden — who was the oldest person to assume the presidency in January 2021, just 61 days after his 78th birthday — has said he intends to make another White House bid, even as his age-adjacent peers, including 82-year-old House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, have made the decision to step away from leadership in order to make way for a younger generation.

“My intention is that I will run again. But I’m a great respecter of fate and this is ultimately a family decision. I think everybody wants me to run but we’re going to have discussions about it. And I don’t feel any hurry one way or the other to make that judgment.” he said last week, after helming what many say is the most successful midterm election for a sitting president’s party in decades, though noting that those results would not have an impact on his decision to run again.

Biden is the oldest person to serve as commander in chief in the nation’s history. Should he seek reelection in 2024 and win, the president would be 86 by the end of his second term. He has said he’ll talk over his future with his wife and the rest of his family over the holidays.

Biden has said he is hoping that he and his wife “get a little time to actually sneak away for a week around between Christmas and Thanksgiving” and that his decision to run for reelection will likely “be early next year we make that judgment.”

Popular media personality based in Ghana, Nana Aba Anamoah, has heaped an unquenchable fire on the head of Ghana’s Finance Minister, Hon. Ken Ofori Atta.

This follows the recent fall of the Ghana cedi against the dollar. In the past month, the cedi has depreciated over 40 percent which has led to rampant price hikes in the country.

The EIB Network manager, known to be extremely vocal and outspoken, commenced her campaign with an open letter to the minister about three days ago.

In the letter, the former called the latter ‘incompetent’, adding that “you have willfully provoked us with your abysmal management”.

Ghanaians, who are the main victims of the current unbearable hardship in the country, seem to love the step the woman has taken with many applauding her for her boldness and fearlessness.Nana Aba Anamoah

A post on the Facebook page of the former tv3 Ghana employee sighted by Mediaplugafrica this morning reads, “If you have a conscience and humility as the Christian you make us believe you are, you’ll acknowledge that the voice of the people is the voice of God. RESIGN, KEN OFORI-ATTA. WALK AWAY.”

She made it a point to give the president of the land his fair share in her rants as she charged him to prove that he has the men.

Reacting to the GHOne and Star FM’s on-air personality’s way of addressing the economic crisis, some citizens suggested that the president himself must be impeached.
