Published

on

The disabled community in Ghana has condemned popular music promoter Mr. Lawrence Nana Asiamah, also known as Bulldog against person with visual impairment.

A press statement issued this morning and signed by Amoah Kwaku Addi, The President of Network of Journalists for the Promotion of the Right of Persons with Disabilities in Africa- (PROMOAFRICA), strongly condemn a derogatory and distasteful statement made by artiste manager and creative director at Bullhaus Entertainment, Lawrence Nana Asiamah, also known as Bulldog against person with visual impairment.

According to an online publication, Bulldog was quoted as saying that “only the blind will not see we are changing lives and transforming Ghana..JMTOASO”.

PROMOAFRICA takes this statement from Mr. Bulldog in bad taste; therefore we call upon him to render a sincere apology to the blind persons in Ghana and across the globe.

Disability is everybody’s lot, one must see him or herself as an able person today but the next moment, it can be a different story.

We wish to draw the attention of Mr. Bulldog to the fact the NDC party; he is seriously campaigning for, has its roots and prides itself as a mass and social democratic party.

Promoafrica will like to use this opportunity to task leadership of all the political parties, communicators, activists and supporters to desist from portraying persons with disabilities in bad light but embrace us in the conditions we find ourselves, to enable us also contribute to the development and prosperity of Ghana.

Revealed: Why UK freed Nayele Ametefe after serving 3 years of her 8-year jail time

Nayele Ametefe jailed 8 years

Drug Queen Nayele Ametefe has been released from jail having served only three years out of her 8 and a half years sentence for narcotics peddling and trafficking.

We learnt she was released days ago on parole for showing extraordinarily good behaviour throughout her 3 years in prison, even though she has 5 and a half years to go.

Parole is a temporary release of a prisoner who agrees to certain conditions before the completion of the maximum sentence period, originating from the French ‘parole’.

The Ghanaian who also hold an Austrian passport pleaded guilty to carrying 12 kilos of cocaine to the United Kingdom was been sentenced to eight years, eight months’ imprisonment.

Nayele Ametefe was sentenced on her own plea by the Isleworth Crown Court in London. The sentence was discounted because of her early guilty plea. Nayele appeared in court well dressed and looked indifferent when the sentence was handed down on her head.

The prosecutors told the court Nayele had $23,000 and an additional 6,000 Pounds in her handbag when she was arrested. The money was payment for her courier services.

According to the prosecutors, Nayele Ametefe was carting the cocaine to South America. Her travel itinerary, the court was told indicated that she was leaving the United Kingdom two days after her arrival, for the Dominican Republic.

The 12 kilograms of cocaine was, therefore, not meant to be consumed in the UK.

In his submission for mitigation, lawyer for Nayele told the court she came from an underprivileged home and married a spare parts dealer at Ghana’s famous spare-parts market, Abossey Okai.

She has three children, the first being 16 years old. Her marriage broke down and she has been a single mother.

According to the lawyer, Nayele came into contact with powerful people in 2004 and her life changed dramatically. She travelled extensively with influential people as their companion.

The lawyer said Nayele has remained connected to powerful people in authority who are currently in power in Ghana.

She was forced by circumstances to engage in transporting drugs to support her newly attained high-class lifestyle and to take care of her three children, the lawyer said.
